Welcome back to my life,
I went back to the supermarket,
Got all my stuff…
🤦♂️ Oh yeah, the card!
(A nested ‘oh yeah’ this time— “Oh yeah ‘Oh yeah, the card!!'”),
“Excuse me I left my card here the other day…”,
“…Oh we can’t check that until 8am”,
“Ah ok, sorry, I’ll have to leave this stuff here then”,
(YoU tHiNk YoU CaN jUsT WaLk In hErE…),
Riding back through the rain,
It had been a fun mission, anyway,
Although a typical expenditure of effort,
Avoidable and to no purpose 😏;
Force of habit means I have to run through a rigid checklist each time,
When paying for things…
And any change to the routine messes me up,
Because I have to run through these checklists to avoid even greater, more frequent and more costly mistakes!
À la Air Crash Investigation;
This is not good enough young man!
Your lassez-faire attitude needs revising,
Woe betide anybody who thinks this is acceptable behaviour!!!

Go around…Go around!!!
