True Story Tuesday - Pickles!

This is my first True Story Tuesday post!!
I usually prefer to grocery shop by myself because bringing my family along costs me a lot more money!! As I was feeling generous Sunday evening, I asked Adam if he wanted to come along (he's the lesser of the 3 evils as far as asking for things I don't really want to buy).

He usually has to sit in the front "seat" in a cart so I can keep him contained while I shop, but I let him sit in the back, if he stayed on his bottom. The cart quickly filled with groceries and we went to the checkout to pay and leave. Adam wanted to help me unload the cart and put the food on the conveyor belt. Everything was going good and he was actually pretty helpful!!
Then he decided to lift something that might have been too heavy for him...

...the big jar of pickles! It didn't quite make it to the conveyor belt. CRASH!! Yes, he dropped a big jar of pickles on the floor. In case any of you were wondering - pickles jars don't just break - they EXPLODE!! The kind workers at Food Lion told him not to worry about it and they quickly and pleasantly began to clean the mess. They got out numerous towels, mops, floor cleaner, etc.

Adam looked at the poor lady who had to clean his pickle mess and said -

" Lady, it looks like you made a mess!"

Good job blaming it on an innocent victim!!
My two year old loves to catch me making a mess. Then he will decided if it is a "big" mess, or a "wittle" mess.
Nice to read your story.

Found you from TST - welcome to the chaos! It quickly becomes addicting. That is too funny - gotta love the pass the buck mentality. Do you see politics in his future?

Beth said...

Oh My! Doesn't take long for them to learn to blame things on someone else does it?

Hahahaha! That is great! Gotta love a boy who knows how to point fingers at the innocent person cleaning up the mess he created.
