@justagirlxo88:  I was behind a girl with a bottle of white wine and a cucumber. I’m dead serious. It was so awkward.

I always get a kick out of DH’s orders at fast food joints. He typically orders a double meat cheeseburger with bacon and a Diet Dr. Pepper.

My friend has a hilarious off color story about a time he went to the grocery store and picked up cat food and condoms.

Lube, condoms, and some gift tags.  The cashier was ready to set the gift tags aside when I told him I actually wanted them!

This one dude had several cartons of chocolate milk, like way more than one could or should drink before the expiry date. It was pretty funny seeing him pile them all on the counter.

When I was in high school I worked as a cashier at Wal-Mart and had one very memorable checkout. 

A man (who was NOT very attractive and kind of gross) bought: strawberries, whip cream, and a disposable camera.

I bought condoms and a pregnancy test together once. The woman looked at me like “Isn’t it alittle late for condoms?” What really happened was I thought I was pregnant(we weren’t trying) and Darling Husband back then Boyfriend or Best Friend said I needed to grab condoms just incase I wasn’t.

@justagirlxo88:  I was once in line behind someone who was buying a cooked chicken and an air rifle at 3am. So yeah.

@somethingaquamarine:  good god, she wasnt even TRYING to hide *her* evening plans.


I was once at the self-checkout of walmart and a young man was ahead of me in line.  By “young” I mean *maybe* 13 years old.  He was a pimply-faced white kid, about 62lbs soaking wet and rocking a respectable peach-fuzz mustache to go with his ‘fro.  He was nervously trying to scan his one item only to make the red “assistance” light above the register light up. 


A large older black lady associate approached him to help the guy out.  She, too, tried scanning the item a few times before SHOUTING to another associate “Hey, Mark! This barcode wont work: can you go grab me a box of Trojan Magnum condoms?…No, Trojan Magnum CONDOMS. Thank you!” 


For those of you who aren’t condom aficionados, “Magnum” is the condom size intended for extra large weiners.


So while this lady and her coworker were busy hollering the details back and forth, this kid is standing there doing everything in his power not to shit himself while the entire store watched.  It was amazing.

My friend has a mental condition (treated now) where she used to only eat one thing at a time.  For a while it was canned pumpkin, and she’d go fill her entire cart at the grocery store.  Well, she ate so much her skin literally turned orange.  It was a pretty hilarious mental image to think of this bright orange girl wheeling around the store with a cart overflowing with cans of pumpkin.  She said she got a LOT of funny looks.
