Safeway: Where are the hotdogs?!

Where are the hotdogs?!

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

Every once in a while I get this craving.

You know the one I’m talking about. You stare out the window on a gorgeous day, and dream of grabbing a half-smoke from the hotdog vendor on the corner, with extra onions and mustard.

Sitting on a park bench, enjoying the creature comfort of smoked sausage and tangy brown mustard with the bite of the onion.

Sadly, I’m at home waiting on the Wells Fargo Wagon’s modern descendent to deliver my replacement TiVo and some new business cards, so popping into the city is a no-go. Going to Safeway, though, for a package of Hebrew Nationals, though, that I can handle.

Except there weren’t any. I could have had a ton of different sausage types, but not one hotdog. How the hell does this happen? Dammit, now I really want a half-smoke.

    My Safeway no longer carries Hebrew National either. No explanation either, just vanished from the hot dog section.

    I’m just dying because there were absolutely no hotdogs at all in the whole store. Just various specialty sausages. Dammit, I just want a hebrew national!

    Ok THAT is freaky. Did you ask anyone? Were they hiding with the packs of mismatched buns? (8 buns to 10 dogs, that’s just wrong)

    I try very, very hard NOT to talk to the people in that Safeway. It’s kinda ghetto, and the people there are…scary. Not scary in that can beat me up sort of way, but in that might stalk me and kill me and eat me kind of way.

    The Palenstinians have taken your Hebrew Nationals.
