Today there were a few things I needed from town, one was ice cream for Dad's daily coffee milkshake. I dislike going to wally world on the best of days. But since it was 108 degrees out and possible to get the other things and the ice cream in one place, I went. I was cruising through hardware, auto, & paint looking for one item and not finding it, when a Clean Cut older gentleman (actually probably younger than me by a few years) in an associates shirt asked if he could help me.
With a sweet grin I said, "Gosh I hope so, I'm looking for the naval jelly."
Mr. Clean Cut looked startled, backed up a step or two, pointed to another region of the store and stammered, "I I think you need to look in the pharmacy section for that."
"Nope, don't think it will be there," said I, with a grin.
"Do you mind if I ask what it's used for." said Mr. CC.
"It's used to remove rust from metal, among other things," I said grinning.
"um, it might help if I knew what you're using it on?" he asked.
"Your what?" he stammered.
"My trailer hitch," I answered with a grin.
Mr. Clean Cut cautiously backed down the isle and said, "IF we have something like that, it it might be in this section. Well, look at that, there is a jar of it, says naval jelly right on it!" he said with a big grin.
