During the pandemic, my wife and I have relied on curbside delivery to pick up basic grocery items from a nearby Wal-Mart. The experience has been pretty good for the most part — the store occasionally substitutes items or is out of stock of other things, but we get most of what we want without having to go into a store.
Last week, we had a bit of a humorous incident involving an order which included two heads of iceberg lettuce. Instead of getting two heads of lettuce, we got this:
Yep, that’s a cabbage on the right. It didn’t have a wrapper which said “ICEBERG lettuce” like the one on the left. Kind of hard to miss that, we thought.
Oh well, we will have to update our menu. Instead of regular salads in the next couple of weeks, I guess we’ll have coleslaw. And of course, St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, so corned beef and cabbage is definitely a possibility.
But next time you order a red onion from Wal-Mart, remember, you might get a beet or a red potato instead.
