Following on my earlier post about feeling like Wile E. Coyote, I bought a six pack of Perrier in their new all-natural grapefruit flavor (just Perrier water with extract of grapefruit peel). It’s delicious, by the way, and a great way to fulfill that need for a tasty, fizzy drink without all the chemical shit and calories in soft drinks.

The six-pack is factory shrink-wrapped. I opened the pack and lo-and-behold, one bottle completely devoid of water! The cap with its twist-and-break seal is intact, so clearly, the filling machine missed one on the assembly line back at the Perrier springs in France. So do you go back to the store and spend two bucks of gas to get a refund of a $1.25? Always the dilemma with grocery store returns.
