  9. Roxana says...

    Haha! “Listen up Buster!” Totally.

  10. Owl says...

    Hahaha!!! I love these!!! This is my favourite Friday joke ever. Unfortunately totally relatable for me, especially the haircut, the mis-order, and the things I should have said to those who wronged me! That could be the name of my memoir! Hahaha!

    I’d like to add, Ghost of Things I Should Have Bought on Vacation. Farewell, burnt orange turtleneck, I should have bought in Germany 👋.

    • Rachel says...

      And her more local cousin: Ghost of the Item I Should Have Bought at the Thrift Store. So long, vintage leather Dooney handbag…..

    • ANDREA says...

      Those are truly haunting! It now makes me curb my underbuyer tendencies. I am wearing a scarf I bought in Burgos, Spain this summer that I almost put back. You know, because buying THREE accessory scarves for work for a total of 20 euros is just too crazy!

    • Sarah says...

      Oh my gosh, I found my people: the under-buyers! None of my friends will go shopping with me anymore because I look forever and never buy anything.

  13. K says...

    Oh the ghost of things I should’ve said… My comebacks come too slowly!

    I used to always be jealous of whatever my husband ordered at a restaurant because it ALWAYS tasted better than mine. He has a more refined palate than me. Now I learned from my errors and just let him order both dishes and we split half half. It’s always a win, or at least the pressure isn’t on me! Ha.

  14. Diana McNeill says...

    The ghosts of the haircut and wasted time speak straight to my soul.

  15. Lauren E. says...

    OMG the restaurant order! I work in the food industry, and used to totally school my husband when we’d go out to eat. Now he’s learned a thing or two and is the consummate orderer. I’m always jealous of whatever he gets and he loves to remind me of my former smugness.

  16. Colleen S says...

    Yeah, that retort I should have said is definitely me. I just thought up one for something that happened 17 years ago.

  17. Maria says...

    Haha, this is so funny and relatable ;)

  18. Claire says...

    Ha! cute! (always get ravioli!)

  19. Anya says...

    Oh, this rang true with me today! I always seem to have the ghost of the restaurant misorder.. I can’t always decide on what to order! too many options :) I wish I could taste all the food/drink before deciding!

    There’s a French saying about this: esprit de l’escalier, a witty remark that occurs to you too late. I know the feeling well, haha.
