So I'm in a dollar store with a friend buying wrapping paper etc for my grand daughter's fifth birthday.  My friend says to me..."Why don't you get her some of this Silly String...her parents will love you for it."  I pick up the can, pay for it and while I am wrapping the gifts this morning....Was NOT Silly String.  It was red spray paint.
Now, I'm not willing to balme THE FOG on this entirely...I should have REALLY looked at the can.  I think it got displaced on the shelf with the party supplies.
I can just picture Ella spraying all her little friends with Rustoleum.  All I can say is that I am glad I was with it enough to look at the can before I wrapped it!

Yeah, those of us who occasionally wash our dishes in carpet shampoo suspect that product recognition is not the fibromite's strong suit.

So glad to know I'm not the only one to think I'm getting one thing, and get home with something else. Hubby says didn't you look at it? Didn't you write down what you were supposed to get? The answer: yes to both. Maybe the aliens switched it while I wasn't looking!!

And my hubby wonders why it takes me so long to shop. I spend half my time double checking my cart against my list making sure I got the right stuff, and I still manage to come home with at least one thing that makes us all laugh. I'm infamous for grabbing the wrong canned goods or the wrong paper products. I hate that Seventh Generation toilet paper and paper towels are right next to each other, come in the same packaging, and tend to be roughly the same size...makes for uncomfortable bathroom trips when I mix them up. LOL

Glad you caught the mistake now, that could have been a birthday to remember hehehe
