â€¦at the Harris-Teeter supermarket. Having given into the need to get a Harris-Teeter (why are names like “Teeter” and “Cooter” so southern? Harris-Teeter is now Harris-Cooter) VIC card (don’t ask: it’s one of those plastic barcode discount-getter cards) I went to the Courtesy Desk and filled out a form. As I put pen to paper I realized the following things are securely stored behind the Courtesy Desk and not out on the shelves.
- Canned crabmeat
- Lottery tickets
- Infant formula
The last made me sad and I thought about people so strapped for cash they have to steal baby food, enough so that management has to hide it away and guard it.
