What are you ashamed of buying at the grocery?

Once, I had to buy prune juice (3 bottles! ) for my director. She was backed up for two weeks, and called me home before I got to work to ask me to get it for her, before she goes into a meeting. I couldn't say no to my boss! So there I was, all dressed up in business suit buying prune juice. It was so humiliating! At least, when you buy condoms, people know you're having a good time...but prune juice? And three bottles? And it wasn't even for me!!

  • I try to not make eye contact when I'm buying pads, chocolate, and midol. I shouldn't be embarrassed, but they always ask "How are you?" Well, how do you think I am??

  • I get what you're saying but I can't really think of anything that would make me feel ashamed. I don't think it's anybody's business what I buy and frankly I don't think the cashier cares enough to even give it a second thought.

  • I shop for my whole house at once, which includes my grandmother, who is in her 70's.

    So I have to go through the line with all the regular grocery stuff PLUS all her OTC medicine (Alka-Seltzer, Dramamine, Prilosec, etc.) AND her incontinence pads.

    Imagine the looks I got the weekend I had a friend coming up and stopped for beer....

    Chips, dip, hamburger meat, buns, beer, and DEPENDS.

  • Nope. Can't say that I'm embarressed by what I buy. there was one time (I swear I wasn't thininking about what I was buying) That I bought condoms, whip cream, candles, and bananas in one trip. When I got to the register the lady just looked a me like I was nuts. When I realized why I started laughing. She just said intresting. (The banana were for banana pudding and so was the whip cream) I didnt find it embarassing just funny.

  • Hell, I bought prune juice when I was pregnant and the last thing on my mind was what other people were thinking! lol

    I'm not ashamed to buy anything. I have an IUD so we don't use condoms and when we did, dh bought them . . . your wieney . . . you buy em! Also, since I have an IUD, I haven't had a period in almost 2 years. I don't have anything embarrassing to buy.

  • Ha ha! But a whole huge list is not as bad...but if you only had to get one item that for sure, people would notice?
