Thursday morning I took Foxy to my mecca to pay homage to the gods of red and white. Target! We had a delightful time and picked up a couple of things we needed and several more we did not.
At checkout, I paid for our purchases and placed the receipt in my wallet. I placed the wallet in my purse and pushed the cart out to the car. I loaded the Foxy and my purse into the car and left the parking lot.
Notice anything missing?
As I was driving down the highway to meet CaliSlim for lunch, I glanced in the back seat to make sure Foxy was there. I have this irrational fear that I am going to one day leave her somewhere, so I am constantly checking for her. I was put at ease as I saw her in the back. Then I noticed something…
There were no red and white bags in the back seat.
I had left my shopping bags in the store!
I pulled out my receipt and immediately called the store. I was laughed at by the Target operator assured that my purchases were waiting for me at guest services.
I am hoping it was my imagination that the cashiers weren’t all snickering at me as I sheepishly walked back in to retrieve my things.
Do you ever have scatterbrained moments? Share one so I don’t feel like a total idiot!
