$5 Steak Attack

March 4, 2011

We got a call tonight from a good friend cluing us in to a great deal happening “RIGHT NOW” at Harris Teeter.  They were having a $5 Steak dinner special that included a 10 oz ribeye, a baked potato and a bag of salad, all for $5.  We hadn’t planned anything for dinner, so I hopped in the truck and drove the less than a mile distance to HT.

When I got to the meat counter it seemed that many others had also heard about the $5 steak dinner.  There were at least 12 others standing around the steaks, jockeying for position, trying to get the best cut of meat.  The butchers at HT were bringing out piles of meat as quick as they could.  I was honestly worried that a fight might break out over a free bag of salad.  I just got what I needed and moved on.

What about you?  Anyone out there ever witnessed a fight, tussle, or argument over a good deal at the grocery store?  I’d love to hear about it.
