Getting annoyed at my carelessness

(25 Posts)

I know it's only minor but I spent ages writing my shopping list on paper (I am old school). I was walking to the supermarket when I noticed my shoe lace was undone. I tucked my shopping list into a nearby wall while I did it up but then forgot about it and walked away.

Especially annoying as I spent ages writing the list in code because my shopping list is basically just crisps, chocolate and ice cream and I am embarrassed if other people read it. I even had two special 2p coins wrapped in the list to use for the trolley.

I know it's my fault for bring careless but am I being unreasonable for getting annoyed?

Where do trolleys cost 2p? Most of them round here expect £1 (misses point completely)

2ps in a trolley? Where do you live? 1970?

Seriously though, I do shit like this constantly, if I didn't have a toddler to do it for me I'd drive myself round the bend

That note is very disturbing.

What year are you living in? 2 x 2p for the trolley? It costs a quid everywhere I go nowadays. As for the list OP,unless it had your name on it,I wouldn't worry. Who's going to know it's yours?

Well that's that mystery solved!

You're correct, I did write on red margined paper. Think it came from the WH Smiths in town.

Bit annoying as I have had to write a new list. The old code wasn't even that complicated, if anyone had found it they would have cracked it within five minutes.
