Where is my Shower Cap???

We had a fantastic vacation. Much needed.  Hudson had a blast swimming and ruling the condo.  I love vacations.  I love relaxing, eating all I want, napping, and finishing books I'm reading. 

My husband loves taking the free shampoos/lotions, shower caps, and mouthwash they give you in the hotel rooms we stayed in on the way down and back home. 

I always get home and I'm cleaning out his bag and find all these tiny bottles.  What do you do with the bottles?  Do I put them in our cabinets or keep them in the bags?  I once read you can sit them out for guests you have.  We don't have that many guests! 

I asked him, "David dear, why do you always take the free toiletries from the bathroom at the hotels?" 

He replies, "Their Free!!!  You never know when you might need them!"

I have to add, that I am almost positive we will NEVER be so poor that we cannot afford shampoo, lotion, or mouthwash.  Also, I have not once in my life used a shower cap.

Retail Therapy

I never really realized how much I despise retail workers.  It starts with the fact of them being the snobbiest people I have EVER met. I want to look at them and say, "You make maybe $6 an hour. I make way more than you and I CAN afford your clothes!"  I mean if you dare walk out of their store and not buy anything they look at you like, "Are you kidding me? You couldn't find anything in MY store?" 
I also feel like some stores, I will just call them,  THE LIMITED and CHARLOTTE RUSSE, look at me when I walk in and say with their eyes, "You can't fit into anything in this store, what are you doing in here?" 

That's when I say with my eyes, "You are completely correct... but I love your jewelry!" 

Also, for goodness sakes, I DO NOT want to sign up for your freaking credit card.  If I want 10% off today I will let you know! This guy yesterday at GAP actually told me it would help him out SO much if I would sign up for one.  I said, "Well, you don't know the trouble it will get me in when I get into the car!"  He did not take this as a NO. He continued with actually begging me to sign up for one! I was shocked.  Kid, your little "reward" for getting me to sign up is not worth the interest rate I'm going to be charged when I will not pay off this card monthly.  Your little "reward" is not worth me planning a funeral, because I rack up an incredible amount of money on there and keep it a secret from my husband and then he finds a bill and opens it and has a heart attack.

Also, just because you are having a "Buy one get one 1/2 off" sale, does that mean I HAVE to get another shirt!  I came in for one shirt, and one shirt only. 

It does usually mean I will leave with at least 2 shirts!!  Seriously, that sell gets me every time!

Oh, retailers!  You are such a love/hate relationship.
