Everytime I make sangria, I buy the cheapest raspberry red wine I can find. Would never even dream of drinking it, but damn it makes for some awesome sangria.

I am always a little bit ashamed to go up to the till with 2 bottles of raspberry wine.

I guess I'm a little more thick skinned. The last time I was embarrassed during an alcohol purchase was when I got carded at 16 and the drinking age was 21. I'm now 52.

Try ordering a chocolate martini at a bar. Yeah they're delicious but behind closed doors.

When at a restaurant, my husband would order a frozen mudslide and I'd ask for an IPA. Server would invariably try to give me the mudslide.

I'm not easily offended, but I will take a moment to chuckle at anyone who is immature enough to be embarrassed by purchasing condoms.

For someone reason, this thread immediately reminded me of a buddy that used to make odd purchases with his beer.

His favorite antic was having just enough cash for beer. He'd go to the grocery store and pick up beer, diapers and baby formula. Having only enough for the beer, he'd have the cashier void out the baby stuff.

This was probably ten years ago. He still has no children.

When I moved to TN I had no idea you couldn't buy beer between 2am and 7 am(I think those times are accurate) anyway after a long night of overtime working severe weather I got off at like 5 or 6 am and stopped for some beer. The elderly woman at the register acted like I was trying to buy cocaine for a child.
