And by the letter B G is for Garbage and Groceries. B is for Brain I left maybe an hour ago to take care of the garbage and groceries. However, when I walked out of the apartment, I left my brain behind. It never even crossed my mind that I had forgotten the most important thing for any shopping trip. I got to Wal-Mart and worked my way through the store getting what I needed, checking labels, putting items back on shelves, and continuing in my efforts to satisfy my food needs and make my system happy at the same time. When I finally got to the counter and loaded everything on the checkout counter, I looked for it. It wasn't in the cart and it wasn't at my feet. I had left it home. The clerk said she would ring it all up and suspend the order while I rushed home to get my - PURSE. I didn't even have the debit card in my pocket like I sometimes do. So I left the store and hurried home and back again. I got everything paid for and came home in a more sedate manner than I had just left the store and returned. I also have my groceries put away. Now all I need to do is eat. Have you ever gone somewhere and found you forgot the most important item for your trip? Thanks for reading.

Ugh! One time my daughter and I got up to the check out at Walmart and I didn't have my debit card. My daughter always uses it and she is the one that goes to the store and restaurants here close. She had left it in a jacket pocket. So we had to leave the stuff there and travel back home and get it. I am sure glad we weren't taking a taxi like we would have to now sense I don't drive anymore.

Yes, sometimes it happened to me. But, the experience teaches, so I always have to remind me where I was wrong! Cambia la foto per favore, in quella che tu hai adesso, scusami ma mi sembri un rospo! Non ti incazzare per me, io sono malato, e anche gravemente!

You are not alone. I have done that too and doesn't it make you feel stupid especially when there are others waiting in the queue behind you. Especially when the cashier announcing in the loudest manner to her supervisor on the end of the tannoy " Another one forgotten his wallet". Don't you just want the floor to swallow you up! Not to mention the hassle of having to go home and come back again!

Yes I do want the floor to swallow me up. I was thankful she was gracious about it, and it didn't hold up the line. She rang everything up while I left to get my purse, and then took care of her other customers. When I returned all she had to do was unsuspend the order and I paid for it. It took less than 30 seconds, which was good.
