Giant Dumbness

The deli counter at the local Giant (supermarket) has implemented a Take-a-Number system.

However, they seem to by applying it randomly, at least in the off-hours, which is when I typically go.

97? (Silence.) 98? (Silence.) 99? (Silence.) 100? (Silence.)

Anyway, I got mine -- asked for some smoked turkey, shaved.

What they call shaved here is what I call "sliced thin" anywhere else that has a real understanding of cold cuts.

When I got home, I saw that in this case, "shaved" is closer to "shredded."
