Canadiankaren I Have A Problem...

Recommended Posts

Have you noticed a problem with Altoids supplies in your part of the country. I am in Alberta and I haven't seen Altoids at any store for about one month. I'm really concerned because I love them.

I know, it's dangerous territory to be entering, but I'm serious. I can't find them anywhere.

LMAO! :lol:

Nope, I don't have a problem finding them - I get them at the checkout counter at A&P...

Although Terry's been in the doghouse for quite some time now, so I haven't been buying them as often... :rolleyes:

Hugs.

Ahhhhhh, don't "poor Terry" him . . . his doghouse days are well-deserved. Karen should just be stock-piling for when he shapes up!

Well, it just seems that he must have been in there for a while ... is the length of time well-deserved? If the supply is low, maybe HE should be stockpiling as I'm sure SHE is not!!

Should have known you'd show up on the Altoids thread!! I hope you're feeling better!!

Oh trust me, the anniversary faux pas is just the drop in the bucket! Yes, August 15th rolled around, and not a sound, peep, card, nada, nothing..... Finally, I went to bed at 11:00 p.m. and left the anniversary card on his pillow (for maximum guilt effect... of course.......). The next morning, I got the old "Geez, I've been so busy lately, I totally forgot......" Um, ..........................yeah....... <_<

It's been downhill since then........ :angry:

OMG! Felidae! You're right! I went to A&P tonight to pick up some stuff and EVER SINGLE AISLE the Altoids section was empty! I have no idea how long it has been that way since I haven't been buying them lately (reason stated above <_< )!

I wonder what's up?

(Oops...... maybe I should re-word that.......... :D;) )

See, I knew you would normally have observed a hole in the Altoid section! But you had good reason not to notice.

Not to worry, Karen. Have spoken with my husband and he feels that the "Goddess of Altoids" cannot go without! :lol::lol: We will mail them to you as soon as Terry is out of the dog house. In my humble opinion, however, he should stay there -- out in the cold -- for a little while longer. Again, just my opinion. :rolleyes:

And Carla -- OF COURSE I would be on an Altoids thread! It's like a moth to the flame . . . . . . . :lol::lol:
