So funny story....

Today, after a long and STRESSFUL day at work (today was the first day of our semi annual sale and I had to be there at 5:30 this morning) I decided to do my Target shopping trip for the week.  I got all of my coupons together, printed out my shopping list, and headed out to Target (which is not anywhere near our house by the way, it's about a 20-30 minute drive depending on traffic).
 I got there, got all of my intended coupon shopping out of the way, then started on the possible coupon shopping.  I always go with certain things that I know I'm going to buy based on the circulars I get.  Those are the things that are on the match ups that I do.  For the other things, I just go through the other coupons that I have to see if I can find any good deals.  Anyway, I spent over an hour doing my shopping.
I finally totaled my trip up, made sure that I had pulled all of my coupons out of my binder, went to the checkout, and was standing in line when the woman behind me started asking me about coupons.  Actually she said "are you one of those extreme couponers?"
I said "kind of"
We went on from there and talked for a little bit about couponing, and I told her some basic things about how  I do it.  I was feeling pretty good about myself, I'm not gonna lie. Then it was my turn to check out.  The guy rings up all my stuff, and at this point I'm more concerned with my coupons than anything else, but when he's finished I go to pull out my wallet.
UH OH
No wallet.
I had to void my purchase and I put the ice cream I was going to buy back myself because I felt so bad.  Actually, I felt like a complete idiot.  Nice one Payje.
Oh well, now I have my wallet and my binder and everything is ready to do it all again tomorrow!  Kind of ironic that my wallet says "impulse" when I am one of the least impulsive shoppers, huh?
Well, I'll slap this one down in my embarrassing moments book and you can slap it down in your who gives a crap book and I'll talk to you later.
