The other day I sent my husband to the commissary for just a few maintenance items. You know the items that your kids eat more then anything else: milk, bread , poptarts ?
He casually makes his way grabs the off brand poptarts that have been marked up for whatever odd reason. He turns behind him and grabs our kids favorite fruit snacks. By this point he is in a good mood because he already has two of the six things on the list. He finally marches over to the milk section. He looks and he looks …he sees plenty of Vitamin D milk , two dirty looking ½ gallons of skim milk and looks over to see if they have our usual 2% milk. That would be a negative!
By this point a small group has formed and are a tad bit annoyed, because like my husband they are wondering why in the hell at a military base where there is nothing but thousands of children and babies would you not have any milk. You run out of olives, you run out of expensive cereal, hell you can even run out of my favorite cookies, but please do not run out of the essential items that are the basis of everyday normal life in my household.
Has your commissary ever ran out of an important item share in the comments below.
