I plan to post the giveaway on Monday! So be sure to check back to see what you can win and how!
Last week I stopped at the local dollar store to pick up some cheap tests. Here is my account of what ensued:
Well, I went to the $ store after work. I head back to the corner where the HPTs are located. There is a $ store employee near the HPTs, arranging the soap. When he sees me picking out some HPTs, he says, "We have some cheaper ones up front."
I respond with, "Cheaper than a dollar?" And he says no, that he didn't realize they had the cheap ones back here. "Usually they keep them up front under the register because the high school kids steal them." I nod and smile, and continue loading up my arms. I was buying 10 of them, and you know how they come in those boxes...? Well my arms were completely full as I headed back up to the front of the store.
He notices me heading up that direction, and says "Are you all set?" I say yes, and we walk together up to the front.
When we get to the register, there are already 2 people in line waiting for him. I fall in behind them, and he starts ringing up the first lady. She looks back at me and says "Something on sale?" I say, "No, just cheaper than anywhere else," and smile politely. I didn't really want to tell her that I'm a tad obsessive, lol.
She then goes on to say that when anyone has a lot of one item, she usually checks it out to see if there is a good sale. I just smiled and tried to look friendly, even though I was starting to get embarrassed. I'm not sure she would have been interested in what I had (she was at least 55).
At this point, another person is in line behind me, so a total of 4 of us are in line. Right after she was done talking, the cashier looks at me and says, "We have people come in and buy a lot of them for their horse farms. I guess they use them to tell if the horse is pregnant or not!!"
I was mortified!!!! The 3 other ladies/groups in line all turned and looked at me slightly and politely laughed... it was soooo awful!! My face was so red. I could not wait to get the hell out of there!
Looking back, I should have said I had a damn horse farm, that he guessed correctly! Ugh!
Buster and I bought a new car on Thursday night! Well, it's used, but new to us. A Jeep Grand Cherokee! It's black and shiny and I love it! The interior is a little beat up (I'm thinking the previous owner had some messy kids), but I don't care too much about that. For now it will just be Kelsey back there anyway :)
But this was the day I started bleeding. So my failed cycle wounds were fresh.
After we worked out the financing terms on the car, we head in with the paper work guy to sign a bunch of stuff. Of course, he tries to make polite conversation by asking if we have kids. We reply "No we don't," and leave it at that. A few minutes later, he asks, "So do you guys just not want kids or are you waiting?".
You couldn't just leave it alone, could ya, guy?! Ugh. I tell him we are trying. He tries to talk a little more about it, but I was resolute in my silence. Thankfully he dropped it. He was trying to sabotage my retail-therapy-induced high!
