I put my travel plans back by a day due to weather and while I was sitting around the house today I decided I hadn't spent enough on Xmas yet and wouldn't it be nice to grab a good bottle of wine for my sis and bro-in-law, since after all they're hosting and feeding me over the holiday. Bro-in-law is kind of a 'wine snob', right down to having a cellar, so I spent over $40 on a bottle. I know in the grand scheme of wine that's relatively cheap, but hey I'm a cheap relative
Got home from the store and made myself an egg nog and rum and then figured I should wrap the bottle and low and behold, it hadn't made it home with me.
I called the store, told them what happened, that I'd used a self check-out lane, and that it was either there at the lane or in a cart in the parking lot. They looked and didn't find anything. And I didn't have the receipt. Fortunately, the customer service guy Derrick looked up my purchase through my Kroger Plus card and saw what I'd bought and told me to go grab another bottle of it and sent me on my way.
So Kudos to Derrick and Kroger for the holiday generosity. And to whomever made off with a bottle of wine they didn't buy... BOOO! I hope Santa skips your house.
