Truth or Dare


What gets me excited? I was sitting at my desk when all of a sudden I screamed YES. Why, because I am a dork and I remembered that I had 2 Brach's orange slices in my purse. Yes I needed something sweet and yes I got them out of the 5 for $0.25 stand at HEB.

Now for my first ever Truth or Dare.

Truth: When at the grocery store do you pay the $0.25 for 5 little brach candies, or do you just take the candy?

Dare: If you dare.

Side Note: Yes I am from the south, Yes we call all Coke, Coke, Yes we call all grocery stores HEB.

You make me smile...first off for the orange slices. Love um! and yes I have picked the pocket of the candy jugs, more on the peanut clusters though. There is a term for it..."grazing" heh. Oh well. I was hungry!

Truth: If I ever took one I paid for it. I work at a grocery store and watch people take them all day long without paying.

I also see all the little kids with snot, slobber and God knows whatelse all over their fingers digging into that bin all day long.

Dare: Eat something out of one of those bins.

For five perfect caramels, I'll dole out the quarter. If I don't have the quarter, I'll curse fate, yet walk away without the treat.

That's right everything is a coke!!! And I've actually never had an orange slice outta the bins. But my kids have!

Heather said...

I don't like any of the candy they have in those bins. My dad likes those oranges too, and the ones that are spearmint and shaped like leaves. Yuck.

All dark soda is coke, or in my case Diet Coke...Even though I prefer DDP, I still call it coke, what can I say.

If I'm having more than one candy, I pay for it. I would hate to get arrested for $.10 worth of stale candy.

I personally can't stand getting the candies out of the bins, because I've seen some of the folks who dig through those bins, and I wouldn't take a crap after them, let alone get food from the same container that they've put their hands in!

Needless to say, I'm a bit of a prick at buying food, so I get the good stuff, or I leave it alone. :P

Who would have thought a little piece of candy would get some of you jormen going this morning. And no jormen I am not picking on you.

Side Note: I never should have posted this, I am now forever scarred. At 34 I just realized that I have been sticking my hands into the heathen samonella bins for years. I am soooooo screwed.

just a girl... said...

oh yeah and my truth I do pay the $.25 sometimes I pay $1.00 and give that damn box all the pennies that are weighing down my coach.

Truth: I also work for a major grocer and I always pay for them.

Dare: Eat samples while at the HEB. yucko.

And where I come from, we call it soda.

Love your blog!

lol JAG!

Actually, if you want something to think about, I've got one for you..

While in college, my organice chem teacher had us do three experiments.

One was on foodstuffs from a bin at a local grocery store.

One was a milkshake from McDonalds

And one was from the "hot deli" section of a minit mart.

Needless to say, there were some nasty findings, and I'm scarred for life because of what we found in some of that stuff.

I'll blog about it sometime, but for now, I'm going to keep quiet, because it's nearly my lunchtime!

I always pay. When i take them which is rarely.
I call all cokes coke but i call all the grocery stores - the food gettin place.


I did not think about Spinelli being the kid - you may be on to something. Holy Mary, now I gotta make sure to see it today. Thankfully, I am laid off so there is no reason I should miss it (LOL)

I think I love your blog!

Marie said...

Now I want candy. I would pay for it. And I call grocery store either grocery store, food place or supermarket. How boring, right?

Ken said...

Sorry only 5 pieces of candy would be like being satisfied wth a hand shake after a great night out with you.

Rhea said...

I dare you to drop a pair of panties into one of those bins. hehe

Donn Coppens said...

I would never STEAL from my grocery store because I know everybody and the guilt would drive me insane!

Ah guilt.
The gift that keeps on giving.

RPM said...

Oh yeah... all sodas are Coke. There are just different flavors of Coke.

There's DrPepper, Mountain Dew, Root Beer, Sprite, 7Up, RC Cola (a/k/a RC CoCola)and any of their derivatives.

Orange, Grape, and all other sparkling fruit drinks are sodas. Lemon Lime by any name other than Sprite or 7Up also falls into this class.

Pepsi, well... it's just an aberration of nature.

I pay for it. Now, I HAVE just taken it before, but 9 times out of 10, I have paid for it.
