Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!

I remember back in the early '80s when I was a member of Local 880, packing grocery bags, loading cars and restocking shelves. One day I answered the store phone and someone was asking if we had Pigs Feet. I put them on hold and went up and down the aisles looking. And lo and behold, we at Kresse's Bi-Rite stocked this shit stuff.

I swear I had been gone for 10 minutes looking for this item, but the guy was still on the line. I get back on the horn and say 'yes, we have pigs feet' and I got the response, "so how do you put on shoes?" Laughter. CLICK!

Damn! I'd been had!

Prank phone calls were my speciality. Not only did I never see it coming, I never heard of that one either!

Ironically, stocked them next to Prince Albert in a can!!!!!

And I love it that it's the Pig's Feet VALUE PACK. I mean, we go through it like water!
