How'd that happen???

Ugghh. . . I needed a few things from Wegmans (groceries). So I hurried there before the crowds got bad. . . after all, it is Christmas Eve and the last minute shoppers are out in force. The two main things I needed were milk and eggs. I distinctly remember putting a gallon container of milk in my cart.

At the checkout, I made a mistake in the little machine where you swipe your Wegmans Shoppers card and then my debit card. I've never done that before and I was frustrated, so my attention was focused on getting it right. The attendent managed to get all my purchases in one re-usable bag. I had bought a cantalope, so the weight of the bag didn't tip me off that something was wrong.

It wasn't until I got home and was unpacking the bag of groceries that I realized there was no milk. I was dumbfounded. I ran to the car because I had left the cash register receipt on the front seat. There was no milk listed as a purchase!

Somewhere between putting the milk in my shopping cart at the dairy case and checking out, that gallon of milk grew legs and walked away.

I refuse to go back today. . . I'm not totally out of milk and I can survive until the weekend. The crowds were growing by the minute when I was leaving and I don't do crowds!
