Sonic Register


There’s a Harts mini-mart here in St. George in cahoots with a Philips 66 that is near the mortgage office at which I work. From time to time I’ll stop there to get a drink or a snack. Every time they scan the bar code of the thing I’m buying, the cash register makes a chime sound that is the exact same sound from Sonic the Hedgehog when you collect a ring. It’s often the highlight of my trip to work.

I haven’t been to any other Harts stores recently, so I don’t know if this is a unique situation or not, but it really is super awesome. That’s all.

Hahah… very nice. Sonic was one of my favorite games as a kid.

On a related note, I would advise you not to play it, or any of the new Sonic games, at this stage in your life. There’s one out for the Nintendo DS that looks way fun (Anson has it) but it’s so freaking super fast, you get sick playing it. I think only little kids can handle stuff that fast-paced.

Thanks for spelling my name like Ginny, reminds me of the good times at InfoWest.

Anyway, my mother-in-law works at that gas station (I think there’s only one Harts in St. George, across the street from IHOP). If you see a Debby there, that’s probably her.

And I can’t believe I didn’t notice that sound when I’ve bought stuff there. Actually, nevermind, I do believe I missed it; I’m one of the least observant people I know.

Good call. I stopped there on my way to the w(h)arehouse to get the truck yesterday. I had never even noticed it before.

I found another one! The Shell right off I-15 in Cedar does it too. Great Success!
