Why I Love Trader Joe's

While getting carded as I went to purchase a bottle of wine (and a cartload of awesome Trader Joe's snackity-snacks) a couple days after my birthday, the cashier noticed the date on my driver's license, wished me a happy birthday, and plopped this bouquet on top of my groceries. Totally brightened my day, which was subsequently darkened when I locked my keys inside my car (a car which, I must say, is probably entirely deserving of its own post, and which will probably receive it).

And yes, the flowers are being displayed in Tupperware. I do not own a vase. Shut up.

This is lovely. Trader Joe's is good folks.

However, you (conveniently?) neglected to mention that you'd left the car ON with the keys locked inside. Smooth move. At least you still made it to your party.

He was not terribly cute, no. But evidently he thought I was, at least enough to warrant a free bouquet!
