I THINK DAVE BERG COVERED THIS CIRCA 1974


I went into the new SuperStore down the street today. Acres and acres.

I took my stuff up to Register 27 and said to the old guy cashiering, "Too bad they tore down all those quaint Mom-n-Pop stores for this, huh?"

He said, "I owned one of those shops."

"Wow! You must hate this place!"

"Better hours, more pay, fewer headaches. Big cash payment, too."

"But, that shop was yours and yours alone!"

"Yeah, well."

"What shop was yours?"

"Eastern Grocery. Did you ever come in?"

"Just once; everything was so expensive!"
