Anyone missing a couple of stuffed baked potatoes?

Yesterday I went to the supermarket to buy a bottle of wine and, you know how it is, whenever you go to the supermarket to buy one thing you inevitably come back with things that you had forgotten you needed.

I bought: one bottle of wine, a six pack of yoghurt and some hard crunchy pears.

I came home and pulled out of my supermarket bag: one bottle of wine, a six pack of yoghurt, some crunchy hard pears.................and two ham and tomato stuffed baked potatoes.

Now, I didn't inadvertently drop them into my basket because a) I think I would have noticed cause they were hefty wee numbers(and I don't eat meat) and b) there was no evidence of them on my receipt.

So now I am wondering if I am now living in some sort of random reverse Bermuda Triangle.

And I'm almost tempted to go back to the supermarket today to see if it happens again.

Let me count the ways I love free stuff! (Just as long as it was genuine free stuff moment and I didn't have a narcoleptic-kelptomaniac episode).

I was given an extra bag at the market filled with gross meat products. So I got back in the car and returned it without a proper thank you.

An extra bag? That's novel on behalf of the check out people.

The person in front of you in line went home and got hell from their 11-months-gone pregnant wife for not coming home with the two ham and tomato stuffed baked potatoes that they were sent out for.

I know a chap who drops items into other people's shopping trolleys when they're not looking.
