Check Out Coupon

Safeway is always giving us these coupons when we check out. They print out with our receipt so you would think they would be for items we normally use, but generally it is for $1 off giant vats of pudding or something and we never use them. I thought it was nice to just get a plain old 50 cents off coupon with no strings attached but then I read the fine print. It "excludes items prohibited by law". So no discounted sawed off shotguns or bathtub gin for me.

But seriously, what would be prohibited by law? You can't even buy alcohol (even beer and wine) in grocery stores in Maryland. Maybe lottery tickets?
