Cheaper by the dozen
Doughnuts, that is

 3:33 pm on Aug 20, 2004 (gmt 0)

Fresh doughnuts are delivered daily to the large grocery store down the street. Each day a lady who works here goes to that store and buys a dozen for our staff, visitors, and customers.

That lady has the day off today, so I went to the store. Knowing that the dozen always costs $4.35, I grabbed a five-dollar bill and just left my purse in the car.

At the serve yourself doughnut station, they were out of the nifty boxes that hold a dozen, and had some boxes from the deli in the usual doughnut box spot. These boxes only hold 8. That's OK, though - 8 will be enough, as we have fruit left over from yesterday.

I walk the mile or so to the cash registers, wait in line for a while, and am amazed when they charge me $8!

I protest: "We buy doughnuts here every day and they are always $4.35 a dozen."

The cashier: "But you didn't get a dozen. They are $1 each if you don't buy a dozen."

"But you were out of the boxes... this box won't hold a dozen."

"I'm sorry, but you will need to go back and get 4 more doughnuts or pay $8."

"That is ridiculous!"

"I am sorry, ma'am, but the doughnuts are $1 each unless you buy a whole dozen."

"But I don't want to walk all the way back there!"

"I can have Chuck walk back there and get you 4 more doughnuts."

<I hear the line of people waiting behind me groan.>

"While I was waiting in line, I was so hungry that I ate 4 doughnuts, but I'm an honest person, so I need to pay for them."

He took my $5 and gave me change.

I really should take the rest of the day off.

The cashier: Well, you ate them one at a time, that will be $12 please.
