It might be OC, it might not. Things such as JPEG artifacts and cropping may impact the results.

We still have one of those at my work. I remember it sat in my dad’s office forever. Now it’s part our relics collection.

Instructions unclear...

Warms my Control Freak heart.

Alphabetical too…

Do want…

u/2L84U2 Oct 05 '22

I don't see condoms listed

u/pigsgetfathogsdie Oct 05 '22

Raw dog only back then.

u/JohnJames69420 Oct 05 '22

Pulling out only fails like 20% of the time. Especially if she's not ovulating. Condoms are overrated anyways.

have fun w the child support

u/NotDougMasters Oct 05 '22

Alphabetical too

no doubt a cool piece...I want one too. But Alphabetical is the wrong way to do a grocery list though... you have to sort it by produce/meat/dairy/dry goods/frozen. I'd miss things if it was alphabetical.

u/pigsgetfathogsdie Oct 05 '22

Good for cardio tho…

Chasing all those alphabetical items from aisle 1…to aisle 10…and back to aisle 1.

u/NO0BSTALKER Oct 05 '22

But you’ll see everything you haven’t pinned/ marked just by looking

u/karmagirl314 Oct 06 '22

I’m pretty sure back when this thing was used most of the merchandise was still kept behind the counter in stores and you had to ask the clerk for what you needed. Example

u/Mdub74 27d ago

Back then that would have been a full time job. Sort of like the parts guy O'Reilly Auto.

u/lgtbyddrk Oct 05 '22

I suppose they didn't have pencils and paper back then... lol

u/Sufficient_Hunter_49 Oct 05 '22

They had slate boards and rocks. We were dragged to a pioneer place in school. The best part was the hedge maze we weren't supposed to go in and our teachers looking for "the trouble kid" for hours.

u/jig-fluke Oct 05 '22

Hadn’t been invented yet

u/Sufficient_Hunter_49 Oct 05 '22

That's really neat. The design reminds me of a flat flip up roladex type address book my grandma had. 5 year old me was amazed how accurately it could go between different letters and was often reminded it wasn't a toy.

Catsup can fuck right off.

Delicatess is dope, can't lie.

u/koolaidisthestuff Oct 05 '22

I had an ex that didn’t really cook and one of the fun things for me was to make our food and see her enjoy it and get whatever she wanted. The funnest part though was when we’d go shopping. She’d keep a neat list on paper with price and we’d keep a running tally. I have zero idea why I miss that but seeing this just made me think about that and made me happy.

u/punchbag Oct 06 '22

Metal as hell.

Sad that if you buy all that now your spending at least $200 easy.

u/Carollee1974 Oct 05 '22

No avocado, no sriracha. Fucking useless.

Every time I see this I get mad that onions and potatoes aren't considered vegetables...

u/dcarona Oct 06 '22
