I have a problem with Baker’s Delight bread, Not that there’s anything wrong with it, I find it perfectly tasty and buy it every week.
No, My problem, is with, or rather “begins” with, That freebie card that they stamp when I buy things.
And the fault is entirely mine.
This is what happened today.
I asked for two High GI Loaves, and had them sliced.
Then I noticed that I had a free bread on my card, and showed the girl, but she said that I had to spend at least another $1.60 to get the free loaf.
This was fine because as some of you know, I just bought one of those sandwich makers, and if you own one, you’ll know that you can go through bread at an amazing rate.
So I asked for a half-sized, plain white loaf with poppy seeds, which was enough to allow me to have my free loaf.
I also noticed that there were two danishes there, so I got those too.
I took my stuff outside where Katie (My Malamute) was waiting patiently, tied up safely to the hydrant, minding my stuff which I’d just bought from Coles.
I packed everything up and went home.
When I unpacked, I realised that the small loaf was not there.
And that’s it, right there.
Whenever I get a free loaf, something happens to it… I usually leave it on the counter, if not at Baker’s Delight, then the counter at Antipasto… a cafe and deli, just a few doors down.
If I don’t lose the bread, then it gets squashed or some other weird thing will occur.
Today was unusual in that I’d lost an item I had payed for.
I could’ve thrown a tanty when I realised what had happened, but no, it’s normal… I just shrugged and got on with life.
Despite the fact that this happens almost every-time, It’s just typical of me,
and I suppose I just have to laugh.
Perhaps I should give up using those stamp card things?
