Last week when I went shopping, I hung my shopping bags on the front of the trolley as usual and trundled round looking for my stuff.
Halfway through this process, I noticed a gooseberry bush in a pot had been added to my trolley. Obviously somebody hadn’t been checking, and had put her stuff in my trolley – it’s easily done, I’ve done it myself occasionally – although I’ve always spotted it immediately.
(not my trolley!!)
I carried on shopping.
When we got to the checkout, I said to Hub ‘Hang on a minute. I didn’t select that. Or that. Or that …. ‘
The cashier was clearly well-used to this scenario. She told me to give the items to her.
We went home and unpacked the shopping. Except that there were twice as many bananas and carrots as we had put in. I should explain that Hub does the fruit and veg shopping separately with a basket, and then comes and unloads it into my trolley.
Ah well, we said. It happens.
Later I went into the kitchen to start making supper. ‘What’s happened to X … and Y … and Z?’ I squawked.
Obviously the other person had decided that my trolley was really hers and had taken out some of my stuff
So I had to think of something else for supper that day, which I’m not good at
Maybe I need to put a big notice on my trolley in future … any suggestions as to what it should say???
