Another good cashier story

Last night I went into CVS with the intent of buying some lady products.

Know what? Let's stop here for a moment. This is probably going to be way too much information for most people, so I'm going to give you a minute to think about whether or not you need to read this.

Still with me?

OK, so I went to CVS last night to buy some tampons. I normally just get the little pack, as I don't really have the space at my house to store these things in bulk but last night they had a deal going that I truly couldn't pass up. They had the HUGE 40 count boxes of the good tampons for two boxes for $10 with $3 CVS Bucks back. So essentially, thats 80 tampons for $7. Even I know that's a Good Deal and I am Bad At Math. So I grab 2 boxes and head towards the register.

Except then I see that all of the Easter candy is like 60% off, and I remember that Ryan had asked me to look for the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs. They don't have any, but I do pick up a few bags of Dove chocolate eggs to stock the candy bowl on my desk at work. I always forget to buy candy for that bowl, and when I do remember, I always want to buy new lip gloss for me rather than little chocolates for other people (and by other people I mean me when I'm bored at my desk). At 60% off, the bags were like $1.50, so I felt like $3 for two bags wasn't terrible (and I had just bought a new lip gloss the day before so there wasn't any I particularly needed).

So here I am at the register with two HUGE boxes of tampons and two rather large bags of Dove chocolate. I plop them both down on the counter and the CVS woman looks at me and says:

"Looks like it's gonna be a rough week, huh."

That is hilarious! I hit up the easter candy clearance on Monday. We are supposed to be dieting, so I had to hide it from my husband. I think I know how an alcoholic feels.
