I can't believe what I just saw at the supermarket!

I was doing my food shopping this morning (no not before 5am! It's 1pm here!) and was going down the "personal products" aisle - you know, toothpaste, deodorant, razors, soap, tampons etc. A man was looking at the men's deodorant section. As I came past, he lifted up his t-shirt and sprayed a generous amount of deodorant under each arm!!!

I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Then he put it back on the shelf, lingered a moment longer and wandered off. He had no trolley or other items and I think he left the shop soon after!

I mean, I thought pinching a grape or two was bad enough. But this...ew. I will be taking my deodorants from the back of the shelf from now on!

(At least it wasn't a roll-on! )

Was his wife further down the aisle doing her makeup?

I must admit I often spray things to see whether I like the smell or not

Have to add that I don't spray anything under my arms though

almost as bad as eating grapes without paying for them

We used to have girls putting full make up on from testers when I was a little saturday lass. It used to really wind me up

Yeah but what if I don't like the smell

Have to admit though even if I do like the smell I never buy the one I've sprayed as it isn't a full can I am terrible

What, you mean none of you have ever popped into Boots to 'refresh' your lipstick? {grin]

Maybe he had an important and stressful meeting (i.e. sweat inducing) that day and had forgotten to put some on in the morning. I would have been tempted I think. He didn't open a toothbrush and try some toothpaste next did he?

God, his girlfriend/ wife is a lucky woman, isn't she?!

Um no he definitely wasn't dressed for an important meeting, KeepingMum! But he smelled better than he looked afterwards at least.

littlemissbossy, I don't take grapes without paying for them myself (yuk, like to wash my fruit well first) but it's the only other thing I've seen that comes close...apart from actually shoplifting a whole item I guess.

lol, miaow about the makeup!

I wouldn't think anyone will be eating grapes without paying now if they've read the slug thread.
