Have you ever gone out to buy something and come back with something else? I went to the shop a few years ago now to buy a bar of chocolate and came back with a bicycle... it was on special offer lol

I'm glad to say I've not done it for a while now, but then I do a lot of my shopping online and I tend to only look for what I want... honest, well I do look at other stuff but think twice :-)

I know very well how dangerous that can be! I haven't done it for some years now but I used regularly to nip round the corner for a bar of chocolate (which involved passing a camera shop) only to find myself the proud owner of some 'bargain' or other of photographic equipment - now, of course, practically valueless! There is a graveyard of camera stuff in the loft!

Oh yes, I do that almost every time I leave the house! Once I went to the computer store to buy a new keyboard after my coffee cup decided to trip over and ruin my keyboard. I came home with a $4000 laptop computer. That was a few years ago when laptops were still very expensive. I'm terrible when it comes to spending money on computers.

Full Shopping Cart - Full shopping cart
I always do this. I go out to buy something very specific and end up coming home with a car load of stuff that I didn't really need but wanted for some odd reason lol.

extra stuff is par for the course I supose, it did however become a joke for years if I went to get a pint of milk or something my family always cautioned me about buying a car.

I was very happy with the bike, I've often picked up things at a supermarket that I didn't go for but this was a big difference in cost. AND I forgot the chocolate
