NEVER going shopping with her again

My mom was in my town and asked if i needed to go anywhere. I said the grocery store. So she took me.
We were in the store and at the check out lane the butter i got rang up $3.79. 4 sticks of butter. 1lbs.
She pretty much screamed at me that this is why i have no money.
Heads turned and no i sure as hell was not imagining it. This is a small store 5 check out lanes, 1 self check out.
She helped me with groceries twice in my life and neither times were recent.
She knows nothing of my financials.
I was so embarrassed. :(

Um. Wow.

But to be fair, you had met your mother before you went to the store with her....

That's about normal price for butter too. She wanted to go to this store and things were a little more like pennies more nothing drastic in cost difference.

You already know how she behaves, but you went to the store with her anyway.

Wow. I don't go shopping with my friend because she gives out unsolicited "friendly and safe" advice to strangers with babies and kids she thinks are in dangerous situations.

She’d freak if she saw the price of butter where I live. I just paid 5.99 for a pound.

Then you should call Adult Protective Services for a well check and let her doctor know what happened.

Hugs and good luck. I hope she's alright.
