(nice ham?)

YANBU, we can imagine the list, and we'll probably imagine funnier stuff than was actually on there!
For my part, I'm thinking:
Shredded wheat
My little pony
"guide to ferret care" book

Its not too bad actually, certainly not the rugby match it normally is!

Your shopping list is rather funnier than this one! sad i was irrationally excited to find it though! blush

Come on Byeckerslike, you can't leave us hanging, the shops must be closed by now.

Byeckerslike Sun 02-Oct-11 18:38:53

Im back, Typing now, I live an hour away from TC!

Byeckerslike Sun 02-Oct-11 18:48:47

Upon actually reading it (i stuffed it in my pocket as it was just left on top of the chocolate brownies in Eat) its pretty crap!

Ham/chicken (not specifically nice or shit)
Salad- lettuce
Bread & wine

Dog food
Toilet wipes
Ariel gel
-stain remover
Colour catcher

Copied as written, totally shit and boring!

Ooh, i've been to trafford today.

inmysparetime Sun 02-Oct-11 19:17:14

What can we assume about the owner of such a list?
Female (hence the salad)
Dog owner
Clean freak (I mean, who buys wipes specifically for the toilet when there's perfectly good bog roll just there?)
The bread and wine could be an ecclesiastical hint, especially as it's Sunday.
In my head(a crazy placegrin), she's:
Eating salad and yoghurt, having a good old clean of the house, and feeding the dog so much it falls asleep, all because she has a hot Sunday night date, hence the wine. The water and bread are for the Monday morning hangover.
Any other theories?

She wants not nice or shit chicken/ham?

Obviously lower middle class but has aspirations of middle middle class.

Byeckerslike Sun 02-Oct-11 21:42:39

I agree, the fact bread and wine are lumped together may mean she is a lady of the cloth! Although discarding your litter on a shop display is rather naughty! grin

I also love that she is getting colour catcher and stain remover! Dont know why, maybe she has problems with her washing...

Ps I added the (not specifically nice or shit)

Byeckerslike Sun 02-Oct-11 21:43:37

Inmysparetime, do you make up imaginary stories about people in the street inyoursparetime, i do!

<confirmed sad bastard>

Byeckerslike Sun 02-Oct-11 21:44:22

Nancythursday, it wasnt you staring at me in my mumsnet scarf outside mamas and papas was it?!

FabbyChic Sun 02-Oct-11 21:45:34

Shouldn't this be in chat?

inmysparetime Sun 02-Oct-11 21:47:54

I also judge shoppers in front of me at the supermarket, and make up conversations between people I can see but not hear (but then I am a bit crazy)

PaintedToenails Sun 02-Oct-11 21:49:57

I agree. The 'bread and wine' together mean she is clearly a religious loon. I'm assuming someone within her household has a packed lunch, hence the ham/chicken/yoghurt.....

So, S/He is a packed lunch-eating, dog-keeping, clean-toileted vicar who regularly washes their black cassock with their white towels. Hence the need for stain catcher and colour catcher, obviously....

Why are you all assuming it is a woman? Do men not do shopping lists?

Byeckerslike Sun 02-Oct-11 22:00:26

Painted grin

It is very feminine writing...

DontGoCurly Sun 02-Oct-11 23:09:07

Bread and wine eh!

One of these days someone will find one with Loaves and fishes on it!
