Have You Ever Bought Something Embarrassing?

~ Posted on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 1:23 AM ~

Sigh... as I was shampooing my hair this afternoon, I realised that the shampoo I bought kinda embarrassed me... Everytime I shampoo my hair, I am reminded of this embarrassing incident... This is how the story goes:

You see, I have been using this brand of shampoo for some time now and I realised it's not effective, I'm still having dandruff issues and hence decided to purchase another brand of shampoo during one of our grocery shopping trip at Tesco. So I was scouting around, comparing brands and prices and sizes, and finally decided on this:

Rejoice shampoo

It has the anti dandruff feature which I am looking for, the price is reasonable and I like the small 90ml size as well... just in case it doesn't work at least I don't waste as much as getting the 700ml bottle. So I happily bought it and told hubby I've gotta finished up using the current shampoo (in order not to waste it) so that I can try out the new bottle of shampoo I just got!

And then as I was shampooing my hair with the current shampoo, I realised something...


The current shampoo which I said it's not effective... which I'm trying to finish it up so I could try the new one...

is the same brand as the new one I just got...


I know it's my fault for not even remembering the brand of the shampoo I'm currently using... sigh...

Now not only have I got the big bottle of shampoo to finish, I have another 90ml bottle of the same shampoo to use as well....


So what about you? Have you bought anything embarrassing before?

Oh I've done stuff like that a lot!  I just blame it one "mommy brain".

I currently need shampoo - if we lived a few thousand miles closer - I'd be asking if I could just come buy it from you! Smile

If it's unopened and unused, can't you return it? We can at most places here in the states.

Hi Polly!

Ha ha ha! It did happen to me before, I, too use to change my shampoo, detergent etc even food seasoning and forget about the brand. Well, looks like you are not alone.

Hey Catheryn!
One time, we actually walked out this baby shop and were few metres out of the shop and I realised Ben is holding a baby swimming trunk... gosh, both hubby and I rushed back inside and quickly put it in before someone accidentally thought we steal it! Tong


LOL, that sounds like something I would do!  Mommy brain gets the best of us!  : )
