Shopping is Easy?

by JP49

Shopping is easy, why does my wife fuss?
She's out in the car - so I'll go by bus,
At least it's stopped raining- the sun's in the sky
And I've remembered the list of things I must buy.
She's put it in order so it's easy you see
For it's a quick dash around Tesco's for me.
I lock up the house after grabbing some bags,
Pop in some gum now I've given up fags,
Off to the bus stop, I'm well on the way
Ready and armed for the forthcoming fray

or so I thought!

They've changed things around; I can't follow my list
Or see any order of things that I wish,
The trolley goes sideways, I can't push it straight,
A queue's at the check-out which means a long wait,
It's taking me ages I'm getting quite hot,
If this is retirement I don't like it a lot,
I've not much in my trolley - think I just might
Put it all back and go off for a pint.
