Enjoyed turkey and Thanksgiving fun with my family yesterday.  On the way to dinner, Mom and I stopped at Zerhs to pick up a pumpkin pie and dinner rolls.  And so did the rest of Barrie apparently.  There were no pumpkin pies on any display table, no dinner rolls on any shelf.  We saw someone asking the guys in the bakery, and they still had a few pumpkin pies in the back.  We scored the third last one.  A few minutes later a man successfully got the very last pumpkin pie in all of the store.  All smiles, he held up his winnings and said: "Twenty bucks! Who wants it?"  He wasn't really trying to sell, but he did make price gouging hilarious!

A little later we asked the bakery guys if they had any dinner rolls in the back.  Not only did they have them, they were fresh and still warm from the oven.  The major bonus of our pie and dinner roll hunt was how happy the guys working in the bakery department were.  They were in their late teens or early twenties, and they seemed to genuinely enjoy so many people asking them for help and then being able to provide what was sought after.  One of the guys even chased down a customer with a pie he found.  What a delight to interact with people who actually like their jobs!

Another bonus? Pumpkin pie tastes amazing.  Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
