You're a cruel mistress, Publix.
We knew it was coming. Publix, who had been oh-so bo-go good to us in years past, would soon scorn our dealing ways. They would bring down the hammer on coupon use and break our hearts.
I didn't want to believe it. But sure enough, there I was at the checkout counter last week, with a fistful of savings from the Sunday paper and a cashier shaking her head. Dollar off from Total Wine? Sorry. Thirty-five cents off from Walgreen's? Uh-uh. Unflinchingly, the green-glad gatekeeper tossed coupon after coupon aside, leaving me pleading to no avail.
I left the store with my sights set on Sweetbay.
But then this morning -- darn it, Publix, you've roped me back again.
How you toy with my aching heart.
