We all have those days where we need a little chuckle and need someone to put a smile on our face! I sure hope this true story does!
Here’s a cute story from my friend, Cheryl:
I was pushing my cart through the dairy aisle, trying to remember what was on my list. Yes- the list that I had misplaced and forgot to bring with me. I reached for a gallon of milk as I thought to myself, “How did the store get so busy? Did everyone decide to shop at the same time? I hate how crowded and busy it is- I need to just finish up and get out of here.” I weaved past the other shoppers, put the milk in my cart, and started down the next row.
This lady was following closely beside me and staring at me. I glanced at her, but no – I didn’t recognize her. I continued down the row, but she was practically glued to my side. Finally I stopped, smiled and starred at her… “What in the world does she want??!!” I thought to myself.
It was then that I looked down. To my horror, and her slightly annoyed amusement, I realized that the tan purse I was staring down at was not my purse (but hers)! Upon looking into the cart, I realized that the only grocery item I recognized was the milk I had put into the cart.
With my face red from embarrassment, I apologized repeatedly as I stepped away from her cart… after retrieving my milk. If only the floor could have opened up and swallowed me whole, I would have felt so much better!
