Helaine and I attended a 90th birthday party today. More on that later. I have been driving her SUV all week and… well, I’m just not as organized in remembering to fill the tank. As we drove by Stop and Shop she said. “We’ll stop here on the way back.”
If you’re reading this from out-of-state, Stop and Shop is a grocery chain. It is owned by a Dutch firm with the vaguely dirty sounding name “Royal Ahold N.V.”
As I understand it, Helaine’s Stop and Shop card entitles us to a discount on gas depending on how hungry we’ve been during the past few weeks. Today we were eligible for a 65¢ per gallon discount. Since the SUV was very thirsty we really hit the jackpot.
I can’t remember the last time I paid $1.099, but it’s at least 25 years. Wow!
