I had a funny experience at the grocery store this afternoon.
I only needed milk and some broccoli, spinach, a big Mayan onion, and hard rolls for garlic bread.
To discourage buying more than that, I picked up a small hand basket.
When I chose the rolls, I went to put them into my basket and it was gone.
I moved quickly around glancing at ingredients in other shoppers carts. At a checkout stand I said, “Someone took my cart and my wallet is in it.”
“Was the cart black or beige?” she said.
“OH, God! I said, I didn’t take a cart, it’s a hand basket and I know just where it is!”
It was sitting on the table where the rolls were, wallet on top. No one had plundered my wares.
It was a nice lesson for me to be less suspicious – which is why it happened.
