You know you're 'down home' when....
On a recent trip to the Bridgewater Superstore, I read a sign that made me laugh out loud. I laughed long and hard at that sign.
I wonder what possessed someone to write it? Did a manager ask Trina to "make up a postah, so people know there's more tuna down back on a table"? Is "down back" a location at the Superstore that is universally understood? I wasn't sure where it was. Beside the meat counter? Near the frozen dinner section? At the end of aisle 6? Behind the building? Where is "down back" anyway?
Sadly, I did not have a pen with me so I could correct the sign to read, "...down back on to a table".
The first time I saw the sign, I did not have my camera in hand. The next day, I returned to the Superstore to capture the shot. While I was there, I decided to go for a wander.
Here, for your enjoyment, I have discovered the location of the elusive DOWN BACK!
