Don't you just hate it when...

You pop into the supermarket to buy one vital ingredient for dinner.

You spend over €33 on items you suddenly realised were also vital.

When you make dinner you realise you forgot to purchase the one vital item but you have over €33 of non vital items!

This happens to me EVERYTIME I go to the grocery store.

Is it an epidemic? Surely if you have a list all you need do is read it! And surely after the first couple of times in a week, having bought the rest of the store apart from the one item you actually need then it should be easy to get the one thing you've not bought yet. Whats wrong with you all?

And women always say men can't shop! Bah!

I do it also Beccy, and usually it is something that I was thinking about just before leaving the house.

Hey and fatmans not being very nice!

Lotta said...

Sonofagun. Been there!

Sushma said...

Agreed !! I do it all the time :-)

Beccy said...

Ha, ha Frannie. Don't you hate it when you have your list, tick things off as you work your away around the store. When you've finished the one item not ticked off is way over the other side of the store and is the item you can't do without.

Steffi, lucikly I had something I could substitute my missing item for so it saved me going back to the shops.

Karmyn, you've just reminded me of something else I should have bought. Guess it's back to the shops today!

Fatman, I didn't need a list because I only needed one item, how was I to know that on my way across the store I would find loads of other things I needed thus making me forget my one item. Also when men go shopping with a list they forget the vitals that don't need to go on a list like milk, bread and biscuits but manage to buy coke and beer!

My4kids I was thinking about it all through the store and I still forgot it. Fatman's being fatman!

I'm glad I'm not alone Lotta and Sushma.
