press on

i buy my groceries from different supermarkets...  not one carries all the products i like in the sizes i want (for stuff i consume regularly, i prefer to buy the bigger packs as they come out cheaper)...

for over a year now, i've been requesting this supermarket to carry the 500g size of this cheesy spread.  they have on their shelves only the 240g and 140g.  every week when i go there, i tell the staff manning the counter to tell their buyer to please get the big one so i won't have to purchase it somewhere else.  guess what, yesterday, they finally had it on their shelf!  i was sooo happy!!!

one down; one to go.
->  i've also been requesting them to carry the 751g size of this peanut butter.  they have only the 425g.

i'll keep on asking.  i'm not holding my breath but i'm hoping for the best.  big thing or small, persistence does pay.

my dad has this scroll posted in our house in the province:

"Nothing in the world
can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not;
nothing is more common
than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not;
unrewarded genius
is almost a proverb.
Education will not;
the world is full
of educated derelicts.
Persistence and Determination alone
are omnipotent."
