While i was pregnant I had a melt down because of a grocery store! well kinda.
I was sitting at work and decided that i had to have a decent steak for dinner, and i was going to cook one! so after having had a very long day at work, (i was exhausted - i was 7 months pregnant!) i went straight to the store, walked around through the masses of afterwork shoppers getting more and more frustrated with the crowds, got everything i needed, finally got to the checkout, and the asssistant rung it all up.
it was at that moment that i realised i'd left my wallet in the car, and had to put the sale on hold and the line of people at the checkout, while i went to my car to get it.
when i got back to the checkout i realsied i had zero cash on me, and had to use a card. this was fine, so i pulled the card out and we tried to put the sale through. turned out that the card issuer was having "technical problems" and the sale was unable to go through. i rang the bank and wanted to know what was going on and got told that i couldnt purchase anything until they'd sorted it out.
so after all this, i have to leave my precious steak at the store and go home. i'm furious that i've wasted all this time trying to get something for dinner that i am now CRAVING like crazy, and walk inthe door at home and burst into tears becuase i cant have steak for dinner!! i'm stil really upset about it when DP came home about half an hour later, but by this stage i'd worked myself into such a state that he thought something had happened!!
to top it all off it was close to my birthday, and his mother had left a card and a gift for me adn the card was soooo sweet, it just made me worse!
he laughed at me when he found out why i was so upset. But the reason he laughed was when he asked me what was going on, i replied (insert hysterical pregnant woman here) "they told me i couldn't have steak for dinner, and i've got no money so i cant buy it. *sniff* *burst into tears again and dont complete story* "
