Don't mess with a woman who has PMS!

On Saturday I was in Brampton all morning with dh.  Did call in to see "R" and she really does look pregnant now, so that's good news!!

Later in the afternoon I had to go grocery shopping and as I had a few shops to visit, dh wisely said I should go on my own.  However dh had NOT so wisely said earlier in the week I had "AN ATTITUDE," so it must be coming up to that time of the month.  Personally I am sweetness and light every day of the month........but will say the comment regarding my attitude went down like a ton of bricks.

Anyhow back to my grocery shopping trip.  Went to Shopper's to take advantage of the 20 x the points event.  I politely said excuse me to a woman, so I could get some milk.  She said NO, and luckily for her, then said she was only joking and got out of the way............

Went to Zehrs and a huge guy was at the cash out with an equally huge load of groceries.  Luckily for him, there was another customer in between us, as I was VERY, VERY irritated with him.  He stood there the whole time with his hands in his jogging pants bottom's, which by the way made his physique look even bigger........again I digress........while a guy and the cashier packed all his groceries for him????

What the hell, take your hands out of your pockets and bloody well help.................

I then went to Sobey's and all I wanted there was four things.  A woman in front of me was buying a couple of planters for the outside of her house.  She comes to pay for them after much discussion {{{SIGH}}}, opens up her wallet and fishes around for a credit card and believe me there were plenty to choose from!!  Only to pick up a credit card that still has the sticker on it from when you get it in the mail.  Of course it doesn't work, so I say: "Have you called in to have it authorized?  As maybe that's why it's not working."

She says: "I don't remember, so that's why I am trying it."

What the hell (again).  Now she went on to pay for her things, I think with her debit card, as the bloody credit card wouldn't work.


By the time I got home and put away the groceries I was in no mood to cook supper.  So I persuaded dh to take me to Swiss Chalet for supper.  The good thing about this time of the year at Swiss Chalet is their festive special meal, which included Lindt chocolates!!!  As that is all a woman with PMS needs is chocolate.

As soon as I finished typing up this post, I settled in to eat all 5 of the Lindt chocolates, and no I didn't share!!!

Thankfully my days of pms have gone (touch wood) but hubby still buys me chocolate every month, shhhhh don't tell him it's no longer necessary!!!! Xxx

Yes, I think many of us identify with this post. Chocolate as far as I am concerned can fix just about anything. :)

((hugs))) I can really relate. Glad you got your chocolate!

Dear, I know how this is!! I just got my cycle late Friday afternoon, only exploding in hysterical tears to my DB over 'not being able to do it all'...this regarding decluttering. Literally, about 2 hours after my cycle began, I was a new person. DB was off to work, and I realized: wow. Wow! Usually I do have a chocolate-urge frenzy a few days leading up to it tho! ;o) I do enjoy reading here. Hope today and following will find you feeling more evened out ;o).

The cycle goes again. I am getting to the opinion I would rather stay at the age I am and keep it, rather then get older and loose it :)

Next time we are out together I'm keeping you on a leash!!

Lindt chocolate always makes me feel better :)

I hate having PMS, i just feel awful and can get snippy with people.

As for groceries, I never help with the packing as I tend to be in the way more than anything else! I do however always make sure they split the heavy things between my two bags so I can carry them without feeling like I'm going to drop dead!

Do not miss those days!! Glad you didn't share the chocolate.

ROFL your post reminded me of a conversation I had with the hubby a few days ago. I was reading an article on pre menopause and I told him I might be getting to that age. Then I read the questions that might signal I am moving into pre menopause, I asked him if I am irritable...he said "you are always irritable" (I'm not really, only when people do things that are irritating). So I stopped talking to him. Then he gave me chocolate. Then I started talking to him again.

Oooh Lindt chocolate! Exactly what you needed!!

I hate how once a month it feels like my body has been taken hostage with someone else having moved in! I'm back to "normal" after the first day.

Lindt 90% chocolate is my saviour, lol!

Ha! Ha! I remember those days. Everything seems better with chocolate, especially Lindt. :)

I can no longer blame PMS...thank God.

But just for fun I looked it up...you got to check it out. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=pms
