It happens to me all of the time. I’m shopping at the grocery store and someone exclaims, “Don’t look at my cart. I didn’t use any coupons.”
I’m browsing at the local department store and a shopper catches my eye, looking like they’re about to cry for overpaying for new clothes.
A friend rushes by me with a bag of take-out food and apologizes, “I know we shouldn’t be eating out, but it has been such a busy week.”
