Mr Driftwood goes shopping part 1.

Miss K gets a money off voucher for a teddy bear shop, to celebrate her bear's first birthday(????). she looks online and chooses a small rucksac accessory for the bear to the value of the voucher. she negotiates with Mr Driftwood that he will visit the shop on the way home from work and prints him the voucher and a picture of the rucksac.

shop lady: can I help you?
Mr Driftwood: I would like this please - (shows lady the picture. )
shop lady: we don't have that one, but we do have some others. is it for a little boy or a little girl?
(Mr Driftwood thinks. Miss K is 5ft 5. you can't describe her as little............ )
Mr Driftwood: a girl.
shop lady: this one is nice for girls
Mr Driftwood: it's very small. how do you get the bear in it?

shop lady: no no, you don't put your bear in it, it's for your bear to wear.
Mr Driftwood: oh


  1. Please don't be too long posting Mr D part 2, I am laughing already and have a very vivid picture in my mind of your husband/my husband/probably most husbands standing at the counter looking more than a little confused.

  3. I am amazed, jaw-droppingly stunned that Mr. D even contemplated this shopping trip. BigBean goes shopping (to the actual shops, don't get me started on his internet shopping habits- an anchor forheaven's sake..) once a year. At about 2.30 on Christmas Eve. He needs praise and comfort so he'll go back again. Part 2 soon plese. Ax

  4. Mr D needs praise, not BigBean. That was not clear. x

  5. What a picture I have in my mind. Looking forward to Part II.

  6. I think this is the reason my hubby refuses to go shopping unaccompanied! Thanks for the chuckle.

  7. Sooo funny! When men go shopping it often can be funny, but this was a rather complicated errand - and might put any man off for good!
    Thanks for making me smile or even LOL!
