Southern Drawl Got The Best Of Me Again

I was shopping at the local HEB (which stands for Here Everything Is Better).  I found a nice employee to help me locate the ice-cream toppings.

"Excuse me, can you tell me where I can find ice cream cones and toppings?"
"Yes can you see that aisle that says A?"
"uhhh, nooo."
"It's straight ahead."
"ummm, I can't see it."
"At the very end."
Now I'm feeling slightly blind.  And stupid.
"No, I only see 6, 7, 8, and 9."
"That's right A."
"Waaa, oh, you mean 8!"
The nice lady gives me a look of disbelief. "Yes, A!"

Yeah, it's a whole new ball of wax in Texas. My grandkids told me H.E.B. stands for Her Enormous Butt. I chastised them for saying such a horrible thing...then I read up on the history of the H.E.B. chain.
Charles C. and Florence Butt's third and youngest son, Howard E. Butt took over the business, so I guess the butt part is right

What kind of hicks are you living with anyway?

This was very funny. We don't have HEB's here. I am sure you can get good coupon deals there though, or you wouldn't be going, right : )!
