WTF, how is this even possible?

I'm sure you've all had the experience of going to the grocery store and spending a hundred or two hundred dollars and then getting home and feeling you don't have anything to show for it. It's a common phenomenon, but I think I might have set an all-time record today.

My wife and I had just completed an hours-long shopping marathon, and when the checkout girl finished ringing me up I nearly shat: $452.58. That's right, nearly five Franklins and we didn't get anything. I mean it, not one. Goddamn. Thing. I can't believe I bounced a check for this.

Seriously, when we got home afterwards we decided to eat some lunch, and we had to scrounge around the kitchen trying to find something to eat. We finally ended up eating some old, dried-out turkey that had already been in the refrigerator for a week.

So my question is, how does this happen? I mean really, how is such a thing even possible, even theoretically?


Check your sales slip. I'm betting your cart was full of paper products, toiletries, pet food, and soap.
A few bottles of holiday cheer can really put the bill over the top.

Guess what? Is Bush's fault :)

Check out a funny site dedicated to the absurdity and satire nature of saying "It's All George Bush's Fault!"


Notta Libb

You too?? I feel that everytime!!! I bet you bought razors, cleansers. I bet Mrs Bazzer bought facial cleaners etc...it adds up ....too much!! Zora!...wait till you start a family ( I am assum
ing of course)

I used Priceline.com for grocery shopping!! OMG I used to save a TON of money.....then Bush stopped it. Seriously I used to save over 50%!!!!

That's the sad part. This is New Jersey, with its bizarre liquor laws. All such libations were rung up on a separate tally.

Sorry man...I like, had the munchies and it was just sitting there in your bags...so I, like, you know...one thing leads to another.

Got any of that dried-out turkey left?

Perhaps you should start clipping coupons.


surely it was RedBull, Mach3 razors, and Baked Ruffles, all of which carry a premium price....

Personally, I have found that I pick up the weirdest knick knacks this time of year thinking, surely I can give this to someone as a stocking stuffer type thing? And then I get it home.
