I used to think I was pretty smart.
That is, until I found myself at the grocery store at 11:30 at night because of a carton of milk.
It turns out smart people do a lot of dumb things and there is a common reason why. I’ll explain below.
I’d just returned from a late night shopping trip. It was 11:15 at night and I was almost finished unloading the groceries when I discovered that the milk they’d sold me was expired. I immediately got into my car, despite being exhausted, and drove four miles back to the store.
