Default Quick trip to hardware store w/wife

About 10am I announce I'm running to the hardware store to get a few things so I can build a 'mask rack' for the fencing club. Wife says she wants to come too. About 12:15 pm (2+ hours later) we finally leave the house.

30 min later at Home Depot. I get what I need (no shopping cart needed) she has a cart with some Christmas sale items but is still looking. Another 20 minutes and we leave. Go to the shoe store for a pair of special socks? Buys 1 pair. Off to Kohls, drop her at the door and go inside to meet her at the shoes so she can get more socks. Nowhere to be found. Call her. She is by the door where she came in, just looking. So I find here, we walk to shoes. No socks she likes.

Apparently my sighs, moans, etc have gotten me banished to the car, while she is in another shoe store.

Had I left at 10am my project for the fencing club would already be done, paint would be drying.

It's 2pm and I'm not sure I will be home before dusk.

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage
of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."

I feel for you Bob. Mrs. Zoom likes to pull the same stunt.

I now try to do my shopping when she's at work. That means I get it done myself (5-minute in and out) or at least we meet somewhere when she gets out of work but have 2 vehicles. If the latter, my son and I do our thing, hop in the truck and are long gone before the ladies are even close to being done with their browsing.
If you didn't hear it with your own ears or see it with your own eyes, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth.
