Shopping for my job

My shopping list this week included: Taxidermy moose head, KY Jelly, 2 lbs feathers, balloons, fishing line
Glock or revolver, and a mousetrap.

I actually said the sentence, “As soon as I buy the moose head, I have to go pick up some KY jelly.”

What’s the strangest combination of things you’ve ever bought?

    Now that is a list! Too bad you can’t pick up all those things at the local supermarket. I can imagine the look you’d get from the cashier when you buy them all together.

    Teeheehee.

    It’s an old joke in the retail business. No one is capable of buying a box of condoms/KY/etc. without picking up something else–as if the something else is going to make the cashier forget that she’s ringing up a box of rubbers!

    Here in Utah, where we have a whole gruntload of Mormons, the dutiful husband buys the condoms and a six-pack of caffeine-free soda pop. How romantic!

    Knocking out a little redneck Christmas shopping? 😉

    I don’t think I can top this list. SRSLY.

    Ha ha ha! When I’m bored, I try to come up with strange purchasing combinations that might make a cashier’s eyebrows raise, but that takes the cake. Bravo!

    Makes me wonder what it must be like being the new guy in a big home-improvement store. “Hey Jack, we just had a couple in here buying 2-inch wooden dowels, heavy-duty eyebolts, the hardware to hang a porch swing, and a hundred feet of rope. What do you think they were making?” “Well, was either of ’em wearing a collar?”
