There I was on Thursday, doing the weekly shop at T***o as usual, when suddenly I was attacked by a shopping bag ( one of those extra-large re-usable ones ) :shock:
I didn't see it coming- it hid among the others looking perfectly harmless until I picked it up from the conveyor belt to move it into my trolley. Unbeknown to me, it was in an evil conspiracy with the woman on the check-out, urging her to pack it with all the heaviest jars, tins, packets etc. in the shop until it weighed the same as a small elephant :!: :shock: She seemed oblivious to the weight of it, and I didn't notice either until I lifted it. But by then it was too late- the bag struck with all its mighty force :shock: :shock:
I felt something twang like a piece of elastic, and then sharp pains shot right across my back. Ouch :!: It really hurt, but like a fool I didn't want to ask for help, so staggered back to the car and loaded the shopping into the boot. That was when the evil bag struck again, even though I took some things out of it........
Ouch :!: Ouch :!: and Ouch again :!: :shock: :shock:
Somehow I managed to drive home before collapsing in a heap, but I've been in agony for a couple of days and hardly able to move. :shock:
So you have been warned:
BEWARE of evil extra-large shopping bags, and don't let anyone pack them with heavy items for you.
They are just waiting for the next victim to attack :!: :shock:
I think I'll shop on-line in future.....it's much safer :!:
