This is a riot to read. This lady should become a writer. Makes me wonder how she had the time to post that long story!

OMG! That was sooo funny! What's not so funny is that it sounds exactly like my shopping trips with my kids but I have 3 teen-agers!

This was one of the funniest thing I have read in a long time! And the auction ended with $142.51 being the winning bid, I HOPE that covers her grocery bill, I doubt it though, I just spent just a few dollars shy of $200 and I have 3 kids AND I forgot things like milk and bread...

I think that she should get a sitter and go enjoy a day a spa with the money! She needs it!

That was verra funny, though the sad part is, it wouldn't surprise me at all if after the auction her kids did it again.
