Shopping List

In the frozen foods department of Wal-Mart last Saturday morning, I noticed a man shopping with his son.

As I walked by, he checked something off his list, and I heard him whisper conspiratorially to the child, 'You know, Harry, if we really mess this up, we'll never have to do it again.'

  4. What a stupid jerk to make such a silly statement. I go with my wife and watch how she does the stopping so as to not make a mistake because if I was to make that mistake, she would make go back so why not do it right the first time.
    Have a wonderful Saturday Sweet Splashy Spicy Silly Sandee ( I ran out of S words ) and enjoy the time on your yacht. See ya.

    1. Do it wrong and you'll hear about it for the rest of your life. It will make you yearn to go shopping and the peace and quiet that goes with it.

  9. An age-old trick, isn't it? It can also be used when doing the dishes, cleaning the bathrooms, making beds, heck, pretty well anything.

    1. Many people don't have much of a sense of direction. I agree that this isn't the same thing. :)

  14. It worked for my Sweetie! He now only has to pick up milk once every couple of weeks. Anything more complicated, and i don't know what he will come home with! Heeheehee!

  15. ha ha ha ha ha!!! But this *does* work when it isn't intentional. Be a bad driver and your fiance will *never* ask you to drive again, lol. just sayin! Hey ... I'm really not that bad, and I have improved TONS ever since I started focusing on it a few years back. (I actually thought I was OK before that.) Hugs! Have a great weekend! Wendy oxoxoxxxx

    1. You are so right Binky. About the same results too. :)

  20. Funny and it's a method that has been used by a few people I know. There was a guy at work who would purposely do things wrong so people wouldn't ask him to do it again.

    1. It's been done since the beginning of time. There are the doers and then there are those that don't want to do anything and they often work twice as hard getting out of work. :)
