Curbside Shenanigans ~ 11/22/20

“Yes we have no bananas, we have no bananas today πŸŽΆπŸŽΆπŸŽΆβ€.

We actually wanted five single bananas but Lulu made the order for five bunches. 12.55 lbs later we have this …

At Walmart, you make the order for how many. At H.E.B you order by the bunches. There is a side note which says 5-7 bananas are usually in a bunch. You can also pick ripe, almost ready, and green. At least we asked for green πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ.

On a side note we got two extra bags. Stuff we don’t normally use – ricotta cheese, neufchatel cheese, velveeta cheese, and string cheese. Do you see a pattern here. LOL. There was also whipped cream but the kind in the spray can … very fancy for us. A quart of half and half. Two cans of Pillsbury crescents. Finally some bacon. Someone is gonna upset when they unload.

I called H.E.B main office only number I could find. I chaired danced around, staying on hold while listening to swing trumpets 🎺 muzak. I had hoped they’d charge me for the extra goodies. The clerk told me they are not allowed to charge me. They also cannot accept any items back. Instead he took a list of the items, called the actual store and warned them to be on the lookout for the person who was shorted. By my calling, it expedited the matter by immediately confirming the issue was legit. As luck would have it, we were all on the phone at the same time. Problem, solved except …

I worry for the girl who loaded our items. Was this her first mistake? Will they take the amount lost from her pay? Or maybe worse fire her? And I’m not sure why but I feel guilty!!!! Maybe because I have so much already and I am taking free food like the free government cheese which my mom did not want to take. Who knows? Off to google what to do with too many bananas.

As always, more to come.

  1. Well, you can peel and freeze those bananas to make smoothies, roast some to make mini banana breads for friends or neighbors…peanutbutter, banana and honey toast for snacks, banana in cereal for breakfasts, fruit salad? Lordy thatsa Lotta banana! 🀣

  2. I can relate to the online order dramas.
    For one person two potatoes becomes a 2 kg pack and 250gms becomes 2kgs of mushrooms..oh dear 🀣. Lots of mashed, roasted and boiled potatoes plus hot chips. I fixed and froze a lot of the mushrooms , also experimented trying to dry them.
    Banana and Walnut Loaf would be delicious or fried bananas with caramel sauce. Happy Days πŸ™‚
