Hey gang,

The boy terror, again!

In my attempt to get over my recent bout of pneumonia, I went to the local grocey store to get the usuals...tissues, juice, Advil, etc.


Well, when I get home, I go to open the bottle of Advil and just happened to glance at the expiration date --- occupational hazard.


IT'S A GOOD THING I DID!

EXPIRED MAY 1999

Being my normal subtle self, I drove back to the grocery store and brought this to the managers attention.. he apologized and told me to just go and grab another bottle.

I did -- expired!
another -- expired!
and another -- expired!!


Went and got a grocery cart and then proceeded to throw all the expired Advil and then proceeded to go through the ENTIRE pharmacy aisle.

SUPRISE -- ADVIL NOT THE ONLY THING EXPIRED -- found cough syrup and cold meds

Needless to say the manager was not very happy with me!

Needlees to say he was a little less mouthy when I told him that I was a nurse and was sending the Health Department in to examine their stock!!!


Time to find a new grocery store

Jeff
