I have become THAT Lady at Wal-Mart....

you know, the lady at Wal-Mart you don't like to be behind at the register?

The one with 20 little items in the 20 or less checkout lane?

Well, I'm not THAT lady, I'm the other lady.

After the ice storm last week, we were needing some groceries. I hadn't gone out in a week and even if I wanted to drive in the ice, the boys were not getting in the car with me.

I went grocery shopping on Saturday. I had to go to the dreadful Wal-Mart only because they carry some things that the other store I like to go to doesn't. But I still ended up going to the other store as well.

I was dreading going to WM but I was excited because I was alone. No kids to tell me they needed to go to the bathroom. No kids to put powdered donuts in my basket when I'm not looking. No boys to be fighting down on aisle 9 over who gets to ride the basket.

Did I mention no kids?

I had forgotten that it was Superbowl weekend along with payday first of the month. So the lines were long and people were jam packed in every aisle.

I had gone through all the sale ads and had written down stuff that I was going to ad match.

So I am THAT woman. The woman who has lots to ad match and you don't like being behind because it takes lots of time.

But I didn't care. I was alone and could concentrate on saving money.

I did have a long list that saved me about 10 bucks at the end. I also had coupons. (vicious laugh here)

And the cashier knew of some items that I hadn't said were ad matched, but she remembered.

So, anyone THAT woman like me?

Since your my friend I would just bug you in the store the whole way through, because I'm the chatty one! The one that causes you to forget the $.30 coupon that would have been doubled because the lady behind you saw you had no childen and now you have time to talk (insert my vicious laugh now!) LOL! Just Joking, when I'm alone I avoid people (course that never happens, but I try)
