Local Man Forgets The One Thing He Went To The Shop For


WATERFORD man Eanna Rodgers is said to be furious with himself after a routine trip to the shops ended in disaster, WWN has learned.

After staring aimlessly into his fridge while tutting for what must have been close to 15 minutes, the 29-year-old single man realised he would need to pick up some butter to complete his desire for buttered toast.

Setting off for his local Spar, Rodgers spent the duration of the 25 minute walk repeating the word ‘butter’, to ensure he would not forget the most important item needed.

However, disaster struck upon entering the newsagents when the retail manager spotted a packet of Toffee Pops were on special offer of a euro.

Buoyed by the sight of such a bargain Rodgers went in search of some milk, sugar and crisps while racking his brain momentarily in an effort to see if there was something else missing.

Coming to the conclusion that he had everything he needed, Rodgers returned home only to realise his mistake.

“Fucking butter,” Rodgers shouted aloud in his kitchen to no on in particular.

“Ah, Jesus, seriously for fuck’s sake, that’s the one bloody thing I needed,” Rodgers added, again to no one in particular.

The error was made all the more tragic by the fact that Rodgers had remembered to bring his Tesco ‘bag for life’ with him to the shops, cunningly avoiding the exorbitant 22 cent fee for a plastic bag.
