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




171 - Both, Or Either


There is something very curious about this list. No, it's not the vagueness of "Sandwich Fillers", nor the differing between lower and upper case writing. It's the "Bananas/Apples" that is curious. Why? Simple. Every other item on the list has its own line, but these two fruits not only _share_ a line BUT they are split by the magic slash "/". Does this mean they're to buy BOTH of these items (in which case why were they not given the benfit of a line each), or is there a choice of one or the other? Such vagueness vexes me.

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.
