    I was in line at the store on Saturday to get my ham for Easter and the lady behind me asked if I was making ham. I told her it was healthy claw post for my cats. I am such a wise butt...... Her face was awesome though.

    OK, I was at the store to get an ovulation kit (as I'm trying to get pregnant), which looks a lot like a pregnancy test, as I'm going through the line, the guy who must have been MAYBE 18, says "I'll bet you're excited."

    I couldn't say anything. A--I doubt he knew it was an ovulation kit, probably thought it was a pregnancy test. B-It was late at night, and a lot of people who buy pregnancy tests aren't really excited.

    LOL. I got out of the store and busted out laughing. Found it kind of intrusive that he would comment at all.

    I have been telling my friends that we need to go to the store and play a game where we buy odd things that are semi related, like:

    Cart 1: diapers, pregnancy test, morning after pill
    Cart 2: lubricant, rope, shovel, thongs, adult items

    You could either abandon these items in odd areas of the store or buy them, nver know when you might need some rope! [​IMG]

    I went to the store when they were having a killer deal on Cheerios. I bought 2 cases.

    Clerk-"I can guess what we are having for breakfast for the next year!"
    Me- "Bet you can't"
    Clerk "We are having Cheerios!"
    Me -"YOU might be having Cheerios, but I am having bacon and eggs"
    Clerk looks from me to the cases of Cheerios with a confused look.

    I left after paying. I didn't tell her they were treats for the ducks. She is probably still wondering. [​IMG]
