I swear, no matter where we go if she’s pushing the cart, she’s always cutting me off as I walk next to her. She could be pointing at something to the left, with me to right, and boom - begins pushing the cart into me. If the item is on the right and so am I, still the same.

And if I’m behind her, she whispers straight ahead and gets upset when I can’t hear/ don’t answer. Grrrr

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

Shopping with my Wife is like trying to follow a moth in a room full of light bulbs. I try to stay a few steps behind but have had her do an about face and crash into me on several occasions.

I don't think Lorena used a shopping cart.

We're incompatible when it comes to shopping.

I hit and run, she browses.

I have a pet peeve about this.

I'm cruising down the grocery aisle, and there is almost always, invariably almost always, some woman who decided to stop pushing her cart and grab something off the shelf.

That's fine. Just fine.

However, what she will do, and I've never seen a man do it, is turn her shopping cart sideways and block the aisle while she grabs whatever is on the shelf.

Then of course is the obligatory look at the item, read the label, read the nutrition label, etc, but finally putting the item in the cart.

Then after all that, she will FINALLY turn her cart straight and proceed on.

This behavior puts a burr under my saddle, it does.

When my wife and I shop together, we have a plan. She takes the cart and goes to the vegetable and fruit section and shops. I go get the eggs, bread, meat, and stuff I like and come back and put in the cart, and go off again for the next stuff. I don't follow her around.

V-Tail (at a level that is not at all subdued): "You're blocking the aisle."

Inconsiderate woman will invariably reward me with the stink-eye, might mutter something, but will move the cart.

My wife and I get along well. Probably because we almost never go shopping together. As long as I am home to carry in the groceries when she gets back from shopping, she is fine with that.

Same here. I'm happy getting out of the house to buy a few, simple items (and I often run into also retired pals to yak with), but Mrs. Sigmund does the "big" grocery shopping after which I unload the car.

This thread sort of begs for the old joke that has been around for a while:
My wife recently received the following letter from the manager at the store where we usually shop.

Dear Mrs. Cranston:

Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Woolf, are listed below and are “documented by our video surveillance cameras”:
  1. 1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they weren’t looking.

  2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

  3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women’s restroom.

  4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, ‘Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away’. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted in management getting involved causing management to lose time and costing the company money.

  5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to reserve a bag of chips.

  6. August 14: Moved a ‘CAUTION – WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.

  7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers they could come in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department – to which twenty children obliged.

  8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, ‘Why can’t you people just leave me alone?’ Emergency Medics were called.

  9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

  10. September 10: While handling guns in the Sports department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

  11. October 3: Darted around the Store suspiciously while loudly humming the ‘ Mission Impossible’ theme.

  12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his ‘Madonna look’ by using different sizes of funnels.

  13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled ‘PICK ME! PICK ME!’

  14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed the fetal position and screamed ‘OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!

  15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where the fitting room was.
    And last, but not least:

  16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, and then yelled very loudly, ‘Hey! There’s no toilet paper in here.’ One of the Staff passed out.
I wonder if I’ll have to go along on many more shopping trips?

My wife routinely goes to four different grocery stores. Each one has a certain list of items that she procures. I NEVER go grocery shopping with her. And yes, she would bash me with the cart.

I can save 50% on the grocery bill if I leave my husband at the house. It's faster and cheaper without him! Razz

This thread reminded me of this old routine by Jeanne Robertson. Very SFW.
