I loaded up my cart with numerous containers to hold games and manipulatives and managed to finish shopping before my teacher friend. I waved her down and told her that I was going to head out to her car and would wait for her there.
Once I found her car, I unloaded all of my containers and neatly stacked them in the trunk section. I got in the car and pulled out a paperback that I had been reading while I waited for my friend. All of a sudden a man opened the door on the driver's side. "May I help you?" I asked in a surprised tone. He replied that he was about to ask me the same thing. I looked at him with a puzzled expression until he said "This is my car!"
Oops! After apologizing profusely, I found my discarded cart and loaded it back up with my purchases. The car owner chuckled as he helped me reload the cart. Sheepishly, I waved goodbye and looked for my friend's car. "How did I beat you out here?" she asked once I found it with her waiting inside. "It's a long story" I replied as I opened her trunk and once again loaded my purchases in the back.
