Aisle 13

Monday after work I went to the grocery store. I usually go on Sundays but since we got back late from New Orleans on Sunday night, I was unable to go. We had absolutely nothing to eat in our pantry/fridge (unless Grant would like to eat cookie dough for dinner.... which sounds AWESOME to me) so off I went to Kroger.

I was still in my work clothes that day: high heels, black pants, and a purple button up shirt. After wearing high heels ALL day and then going up and down the aisles of the grocery store, I was ready to take those shoes off. But that would be disgusting.

Anyways, I was in aisle 13 or so when I had a horrifying discovery. I was holding a jar of Prego in my hand when I looked down and realize that a button of my shirt had come undone!! The top button was buttoned, but the one right below it was not... and ya'll... I WAS GIVING PEOPLE A SHOW! It wasn't one of those buttons that doesn't matter. This was a button that was pretty much anything you needed to see. I out loud said "Oh My Gosh!!" and put the Prego back on the shelf while I tried to put myself back together.

Now, girls, here is where I am a little irked. I was in Aisle 13!! Lord knows how many stay at home moms and lovely women I walked past. Why didn't any of these dear women say anything?? I had been feeling like people were staring at me. At one point I pulled out my compact and made sure nothing was on my face. But nope, nothing was on my face. Why wouldn't they tell me? I thought maybe they think I'm just a floozy and I am intentionally having my shirt gaping wide open. But there is no way they thought that because the top button was buttoned.

Come on ladies!!! Help a girl out!! If I saw a girl walking by with her business all over the place I would TOTALLY stop and tell her! What is the deal?! I got out of that store as fast as I could. With my three cute pumpkins that now adorn my kitchen counter.

Moral of the story: Ladies, if you see a young girl trying to get through her grocery shopping and is so distracted that she doesn't realize that she is giving all of Kroger a free show, HELP A SISTER OUT!!!

haha! oh gosh!
Well as I was reading your post I thought--Monday evening, grocery store, Houston--I cringed thinking of how crowded it must have been...maybe everyone was so busy trying to get out there that they didn't look up!
I always wonder if someone would tell me at church if something like that happened...it's always been a weird fear of mine!

Gurrrrl, this has totally happened to me too. So mortifying. And for the life of me, I cannot figure out why people just don't say something!!! I mean, really!

It's your duty as a woman to pick stray hairs off shoulders, alert about buttons or zippers that are undone, or help a girl who's spilled her purse! womanhood. it's tough.
