I just wanted some 2% milk

I know this has been discussed by many but our bodegas leave a little to be desired. First and foremost, I understand but I despise the bullet proof glass that the cashiers work behind. It does not give one a pleasant feeling. And I know it is not a grocery store but damn can’t I get some 2% milk? My choices were soda, beer or whole milk and that was my only choice. And damn if I don’t pay premium for it too. But what do you do when you just need a few things and don’t feel like going to the grocery store. Well, unfortunately in Petworth you get some whole milk and hope for the best. To make matters even worse right when I left the store across from the metro, I was offered drugs to buy. So we got that going for us. Damn it pisses me off. I responded in the most nerdy way that I was all set and didn’t need any of the drugs (ed note: he used some slang that I never heard of) he offered. That is the first time in 4 years I’ve ever been offered drugs to buy. And right across from the metro too, where there are lots of kids. A damn sad state of affairs if you ask me.

  • Maybe we can ask some of the drug dealers to start carrying coolers of 2% milk! After all, on hot days you can find people on the streets selling bottled water… and then you can say “I’m all set with the (insert drug slang here), but do you have a quart of 2%?”

    Seriously, why don’t we ask a bodega or two to have a “most wanted” list, where we could request things we really wanted them to carry… then if enough customers requested, they could see there was a market desire and carry the stuff!
