Jelly Bellies

I'm currently addicted to Jelly Bellies. So I told my hubby I wanted to visit the Jelly Belly store at the Metreon.

When we got there, he decided he was going to get his own bag of jelly bellies. Fine, whatever, you sour-loving candy man! I thought.

I filled my bag up about 1/4 of the way, maybe a bit more. We were at the opposite side of the jelly belly bulk wall, and he came around the corner holding a 3/4 full bag of jelly bellies. That's when I decided I was done because I had no idea how much this was all going to cost.

We both put our bags down on the scale, and it read $18.50 for the total. My husband's eyes got big. He paid. We started walking out.

It was then that he read the sign saying $2.25 per 1/4 lb. He thought it was 1/2 lb (or so he says, which somehow is my fault because I read the sign outloud and he changed my stated 1/4 lb to 1/2 lb -- I reminded him that he knows how to read and should have double-checked me).

I told him that was our lunch out for this week. And that I wish I hadn't of taken him, Mr. Sweet Tooth, to the Jelly Belly store with me.

If only we knew how to diplomatically share things....
