Why You Don't Buy Tank Tops At the Grocery Store

Recently, I saw some small tank tops at the grocery store for $2.50.  I figured for $2.50, I could wear it to ride and not be annoyed if it got filthy and ruined.  I wanted to take it home and try it and then go back and get one in every color.

I bought the biggest one I could find, which was a large, and had trouble fitting into it when I got home. When I don't buy my tank tops at grocery stores, I usually wear a small or medium, so it struck me as strange that the large was super small.  I guess that's why it was only $2.50

And for sale at the grocery store.

I wore it once or twice and tried REALLY hard to stretch it out.  I figured it would be one of those poor quality shirts that would stretch out after a few washes.

And then I wore it to the barn the other day.  The day I didn't take a good look in the mirror.

The day that a reporter was there to do a follow up story from May.  The day that she took my picture.  In my $2.50 grocery store tank top.


The day I discovered just how horrid it looks.  Have you ever seen such sad boobolas?  I am wearing a sports bra.  I swear. And I didn't buy THAT at the grocery store.

I couldn't even give this tank top to Good Will and make someone else have to look that dreadful, so it's a rag.

I'm glad it was in the local paper**, just as school begins, with my name on the picture and everything.

Whoooooo.  Hooooo.

**Ok, as my dad so helpfully pointed out, the picture wasn't actually in the paper.  It was in the online version.  They chose someone with perky boobolas, who doesn't buy her clothes at the grocery store to be in the actual newspaper.  Phew.

  1. Omg! That is soooo funny. I think you'd find a little better quality at Job Lots or the Dollar Store. And you can probably find a bra there too. Just be glad it wasn't a tv reporter and they didn't make a video of you galloping away. Still LMAO.
