convenience store

This afternoon at lunch I slipped out and went to go buy a soda at one of the nearby gas stations. I'd won a free bottle of water there a few days ago, so I gathered that up too. Checking out should have been quick and easy...except the winning slip on the water wouldn't go through, and then my debit card wouldn't connect.

We tried three times.  At that point, the woman running the register was about ready to drop-kick the machine and I was casting anxious glances at my watch - I'd only meant to be a moment..

And then we noticed., both of us at the same time....

I was trying to pay for my Pepsi with my library card.

I am obviously not equipped for Monday and need to be more caffeinated than I originally thought.

Oh my goodness! I'm laughing so hard because I've done that before, only NOT with my library card but with a "Shamu Super Saver Card" that I'd received several years ago after a trip to Sea World!

Mondays should be illegal!

You were apparently in great need of that caffeinated drink!

Thank goodness I am not the only one that does that sort of thing (trying to use my swimming pool card as a bus pass, for example.....)

Library card only entitles you to read the ingredients.....not to sample them! ;)

Oh gosh, so funny!

I'm glad I'm not the only person who does that sort of thing.

I used to work at a grocery store and this happened more often than you would think.
Mind you if it happened to me I would most likely pee my pants. I'm just like that.

I tried to answer a phone call with the stereo remote the other day. Life is far, far too complicated.
