Friend: Was very proud of this rare species until I watered it and the white pebbles turned orange because... the red is paint!!! Well done Woolworths, well done.
Me: That's false advertising. You should sue!
Friend: When the power goes out... when the water in our tabs dry up... I always held fast to woolies as the last vestige of civilization... absolutely devastated.
Me: They helped me through my paternity leave. If it wasn't for them I would have starved!
Friend: Heck yes.
Me: And they delivered. If I were you I would write them a strongly worded letter about how spray painting plants is inhumane and how it destroys marriages.
Friend: Absolutely and how I expect woolies vouchers to make up for my pain and suffering.
Me: AND an apology to all horticulturists. Because they are the real victims here.
Friend: True. I now expect all plants to come in exotic CGI quality colors.
Me: That is how they ruin lives. They have an evil agenda and creating unhealthy expectations. I always thought their sugar gauntlet was a way they encourages diabetes for pharmaceutical companies to make a greater profit. I have not yet been proven wrong.
Friend: They are probably owned by the Illuminati too...
Me: ...who hates parents who they force to navigate the sugar gauntlet with greater trepidation especially when you have a sugar craving toddler with you. We should protest and have your plant as our mascot. Think we should call her Jezebel.
Friend: Don't get me started... those bags of "big spender chocolate coins" - the worst.. this is what I found on our carpet.
Me: That's how they taunt us. Even their chocolates are full of lies and deception!
Friend: And apparently these chocolates make kids lose their minds. Found our two year old dancing naked on these empty wrappers. We are yet to locate her pants!
Me: Bastards! Are we going to spray paint ourselves, in solidarity with Jezebel, stage a violent protest so that the riot police have to hose us down with their water cannons so that we can all be like "see, this is what you did with Jezebel, you assholes!!!"
Friend: Yes, let's take a leaf out of the student protester's book and burn something!
Me: We should burn their newspapers. Also, their newspapers makes one depressed just as you enter the sugar gauntlet and that's how they make us fat - they force us to eat our emotions. First they make us depressed and then they offer us chocolates for comfort. Jesus they are evil! We should totally protest for all the fat people too!
Friend: Count me in!
Me: I will start a Facebook events and call it "Justice for Jezebel".
Friend's husband: And here I was thinking you're a cat person? Get the Claws out.
Me: Don't involve Killer Pussy in this. She has access to nuclear weapons. We don't want to start a war with the Jews!
Friend's husband: I was actually talking to painted cactus's owner... get the claws out and tare open some woolies bags in their entrance.
Me: You are a very supportive husband encouraging your wife to be violent. Once you've open that pandora's box there is no closing it. Just saying. Also, Killer Pussy would be proud.
Friend: Was considering asking for Killer Pussy's help but then North Korea will want to get into the action too...
Friend's husband: I thought the pandora's box was already opened when the pebbles turned orange by the bad paint job from woolies... I am very supportive... I will drive my wife there and sell tickets at the door for the claw bag fight.
Me: Was just informed that woolies sells Fancy Feast and Killer Pussy wants nothing to do with this. Also she is half Russian and half Jew.
Friend: Deadly combination!
Me: They suffered under the Nazi's and it's a very sensitive topic in our house.
Friend: I will be sure to bring it up then when I see Killer Pussy.
(We never did protest woolies because we are lazy like that. Also, Jezebel died and it was very sad and she would not want to be remembered as the cause of a riot).
