I think I might start a segment titled "I Can't Make This Stuff Up"


Seriously. 

I feel like at least once a month I think to myself, "Does this stuff only happen to me?"

Today was a doozie. 

I went with my pal from work to the supermarket during our lunch break. I needed to pick up some veggies for a nice summer salad, some more coffee, and (ahem) some feminine hygiene products. 

Now, let me explain something to you. I mentally never left 7th grade when it comes to purchasing anything "embarrassing". In fact, I go as far as strategically placing the milk next to the box of granola bars in a way that just so happens to "conveniently" hide the fact that I just received a visit from good ol' Aunt Flo. 

So back to my story.

I was at the supermarket, sweating bullets as I feverishly tried to make my decision on what in the world to buy. Why, oh, why do there have to be so many options? As I was praying to the good Lord that I wouldn't run into anyone from work, I hear a male voice say "Excuse me."

Crap. I've been caught.

In that split second, I thought of my exit plan. I could just act like I didn't hear him. I could run as fast as humanly possible in the other direction. I could fake a seizure.

Sigh. 

I decided to face my fear.

I turned around. 

The gentleman (thankfully) was not a co-worker. In fact, he was a younger guy who worked at the supermarket. He said, "I don't mean to be rude or anything...but are you single?"

Wait. Did I just hear him right? Am I seriously getting propositioned next to hundreds of boxes of Playtex?

I fumbled out a simple, "Uh...no..."

Then he said, "Ok, I just had to ask because you're just so gorgeous."

I felt my skin turn bright red and I bolted. 

Absolutely mortifying. Only me, right?

I'm sure if I worked at a supermarket and was a boy I'd try stuff like that all the time. I mean, how exciting can working at a supermarket be? At least it would liven up yours (and someone else's) day.

That's a "To catch a predator moment". Who asks that and in that aisle?!?!?! Creeper.

Haha! That seems like something that would happen in a movie!

The New Mrs said...

Haha, that is too funny! What guy hangs out in the tampon aisle? Creepy!

Juls said...

Only YOU, sang. Only YOU!

LauraAnn said...

Haha! That is hysterical! I think that guy better reconsider his approach to hitting on women. Hitting on a girl in the feminine hygiene aisle?!? Definitely a no no! lol

Now whenever you go to buy feminine products you will always remember the boy who hit on you while you tried to decide on brands!

How embarrassing!

Kassie said...

I just have to say I love your blog!! That is the best story. I can't imagine what they guy was thinking!

Ben Smithson said...

Oh, get over yourself. C'mon. You got hit on. Now give yourself a pat on the back... and then give me your number. :-)

Ashley said...

Nice thought but definitely comes out weird and creepy in the feminine products aisle. Haha!

Lucky in Love said...

Wow! Talk about being straight forward :) Ha!

Rachael said...

LMAO! That is seriously the funniest thing I've heard all week!

I would be thrilled if a guy hit on me! J/k. Another mortifying, yet similar incident. My co-worker ran in to grab our breakfast this morning and a (homeless) woman screamed at her for some money to be some sanitary napkins. Mortifying for all to hear.

Oh that's just too funny. I mean, even if you were single and he gorg, it could never work. There is just no way you could tell grandkids that grandpa picked you up in the tampon aisle!!
