Grocery wars

A couple of days ago I went to the Grocery store. It was just an ordinary shopping trip. I just needed a few items and when I finally went to buy all of the food. It came out to about 70 dollars, not bad right!? Well, I slid my card through the machine and low and behold it says those dreadful words TRANSACTION NOT APPROVED. Of course I had money in the bank but what I failed to mention was that for whatever reason my card (that is not from this state) has been acting weird. I don't know my PIN number so I have just been using it as credit. I guess I "credit it out", I don't know, I have to call to see what has been going on with my card.

So back to the grocery store. I tell the lady that I have to come back and buy my groceries. I was not embarrassed, I was more upset with myself that I forgot about my dumb card. I call my husband and asked him what station he was at because my card was rejected. So I go to the station that my husband is at...then I realize Im at the wrong station. I really have to memorize those station numbers. So I finally get his card and return back to the grocery store, and finally walk out with my groceries. Next time I think I will just take cash. This has been the second time that I have to come back and buy my groceries.Not fun at all.

Oh no!!!! 1. Station numbers ARE hard - there is totally no rhyme or reason to them. & 2. I'm glad none of your groceries spoiled!!! Josh and I switched to the cash system to try to save money, and I love using cash. I feel like I spend less than I would if I were using my card.
