I was out shopping earlier and on the way home decided to stop at the corner Exxon to pick up some Pepsi. I was standing in line to pay behind a woman cashing her lottery tickets and a man in a suit buying a bottle of wine. As he finished paying, he asked the cashier, “Is this the only wine you have? It’s terrible.” The cashier said no, he thought they had others … and as they walked over the the case the guy said to the cashier that he was looking for a Chardonney.
I couldn’t resist. The moment was too perfect. I turned and looked at the guy behind me and said, “He expects Exxon to have a selection of wine?” The guy behind me said, “Yes, and a particular Chardonney at that!” The other guy in the line almost lost it, he was laughing so hard.
If I’m ever looking for some high quality wine, I’ll go to Circle K or 7-11. Maybe the Shell or Chevron. I’m sure they will have the perfect ’94 Chablis waiting for me. Right. Who tries to be a wine connoisseur at the gas station?
