Free Samples


I’ve got my son and one of his friends with me at Trader Joe’s. They start off by grabbing some roast beef and panini at the free sample stand.

Later, when I’m in the checkout line, they wander off, I assume to go outside, but it turns out they went back for seconds on the free samples.

“You guys are an embarrassment!” I say. “The free samples are supposed to be one to a customer, not all you can eat!”

“I don’t think she saw us the first time,” my son says. “So it’s okay.”

“Jesus, I can’t take you guys anywhere.”
