The Shopping List Compendium:
a collection of abandoned shopping and grocery lists




046 - Rubber Gloves

Although not emergency rubber gloves, the use of a red pen to write "rubber gloves" on this list is something that I find incredibly amusing. Its position next to "chicken / broccoli" reminds me of a TV program called Band of Gold where a chicken farmer wore rubber gloves every time he had sex. Maybe the shopper is the same?

This site is made possible by the kind people who abandon their shopping list at the end of a trip to the supermarket. I collect those shopping lists. You might refer to these as grocery lists, which strikes me as a bit strange because not all the items on the lists are groceries. Anyhow, I won't worry myself about it if you won't.

For those of you who have asked why I do this, please just be content with the fact that I do. I saw a list lying abandoned in a trolley once, and thought, "I'll have that". So I did.

Each shopping list I find is added to my collection along with comments about each list, which usually consist of me spouting on about the possible personality of the person who wrote it. I'm quite harsh at times, at others I feel a pang of compassion. Sometimes I just don't know what items are. Hopefully it will aid your procrastination.
