I just refuse to make it easy for them, and I'm usually almost at a run when in the parking lot. Guess that's why I only grocery shop about every 2 months...too much exercise!
    It's funny, i have bags but feel more secure with having my wallet in my pant pocket. In fact, i feel odd when my slacks dont have pockets in them.

    Even worse, hearing someone pass gas while in a stall(twice and at different locations). Im still laughing about this.

    Hi all! Just checking in because I miss you. I'm still on crutches and seeing a specialist next week. It takes twice as long to do everything and I've been monitoring state testing at school all week, so not much time at the computer for me. Not much to say, anyway. I come home from school and huddle in the corner with my heating pad.
    Count your blessings!

    Um, isn't that what bathrooms are for???
    Better there than at the table next to me in the restaurant which has happened before when I've been eating.

The host didn't have anything kid-friendly planned so that threw them for a loop, but they whipped up something the kids would eat. The kids were fairly well behaved, but the oldest (a girl) was incredibly nosy and rude. She was pointing out all the imperfections in the house and asking why something was chipped or what not. The parents didn't shush her or reprimand her or quietly take her aside to tell her she was being inappropriate. At one point, the little girl asked the hostess to MOVE something so that she could further inspect the imperfection. The hostess laughed it off and said, "No, honey." The little girl would not let it go. She just kept badgering and no one did anything. I didn't really know this couple that brought the kids so I figured I had nothing to lose. I went up to the little girl and said, "Sweetie, you're a guest in someone's home. You are being rude and inconsiderate and I would take it as a personal favor if you would stop embarrassing our hosts." You could've heard a pin drop. Her parents were horrified both that someone had noticed their child was rude and that someone had reprimanded her. The hostess thanked me privately and said she would never be inviting that couple over again.

    Honestly, I don't blame the child. Kids do things to get attention. They live to push their parents' buttons. These parents are the morons.

    Anyhow, I wanted to use Gabriel's, "Get out!" But I coudln't do that to a little kid.
    You go girl! - Next time (if there is a next time) ignore the fact that it is a little kid, and tell her/him to go sit outside for an hour and be quiet. heh heh heh -- I am proud of you...

    reminds me of an old friend years ago, his grandmother would always get up from wherever and trot to the bathroom just to pass gas.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Lois, I am SO proud of you! The parents are idiots and SHOULD HAVE BEEN HORRIFIED to begin with to stop the behavior so you didn't have too. I'm glad they were horrified, maybe they'll think twice next time. Oh wait, won't be a next time with your friends, but maybe before they inflict their rude offspring on someone else. I would have been livid if I had been the hosts. What makes the parents think they can just take the kids without any prior notification??? I actually know people that say "if my kids aren't invited, then I'm not either." To which I'd like to reply: "GOOD".


    I too have to say that my daughter was always taught to respect other people's homes and belongings (and ours) and to behave and I usually never had a problem and if I did, you can bet it was taken care of immediately.


    Well last night we went to a minor league ball game here. It was for hubby's birthday. Well it's been cloudy all day, forecast said rain, radar had rain heading our way. I called the ballpark to find out if the game would be called due to weather. Nope. In order to get the "raincheck" on our tickets, we actually either had to have had the game called BEFORE it started, or show up and then they would "decide at that time" to call the game. I'm telling you it is a racket. So we show up and miraculously got rock star parking. The stadium is downtown where there is NO parking lot and we managed to literally get parallell parking in front of the gate which is unusual except possibly in a deluge which this was turning out to be.

    We file in with daughter complaining that she's cold. I warned everyone to bring jackets, so I wasn't in the mood.
    Anyway, we get in, get 2 hamburgers, 2 beers, nachos and a coke and take our seats. We are the ONLY people in our section. Heck, there's less than 50 of us in this entire part of the stadium.

    The usher tells us that we'll be sitting with the major league scouts. I'm thinking: "yeah right, if they have any sense, they're next door at the Liberty knocking back scotch and staying warm AND dry".
    At least we were in the covered seats.
    Finally another couple enter our section. We all watch the grounds crew run around and tighten the stakes on the field cover. Exciting. Game time comes and goes. I no sooner eat my hamburger than they announce the game is postponed and we can either come back tomorrow or a double header now (tomorrow was not going to be a double header, is now) or get a rain check for any home game during the season (but the kicker is you had to be there to get the rain check, which is why we dragged out to go in the rain and we had an extra ticket that wasn't being used, so it did benefit us to go and therefore we can now go back sometime else AND use all 4 tickets.)

    My husband said that the ballpark has a real racket going. You could have shot off a cannon in the stands and not hit anyone as people stayed away in droves (and this is opening weekend and tickets were actually hard to get), but you had to use your tickets in order to get the rain check. Besides, the people that were there, were all getting food and drink, so they basically made money as probably 80% of the tickets just weren't used at all and they did sell some overpriced beer and hamburgers.

    We will go another time perhaps in a few weeks. While I am not a huge baseball fan, I do like the minor league games, but the thought of a double header and 6 hours in a stadium seat today is a nightmare.

    But it really screwed up the whole family's dinner plans. We got in the car and I said: "man, I had planned to start with the hamburger, move on to the hot pretzel around the 3rd inning, peanuts in the shell for the remainder and then possibly ice cream at the 7th inning stretch". My husband and daughter started laughing as they had similar eating plans.
    Well my waistline thanks mother nature last night anyway.

    Oh, Lois Lane- this is for you, pretend it's a gold one.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Amy, the first time I met my in-laws for dinner, he passed gas at the table. And then stomped on the floor and said, "Awww, I missed that frog!" Man!!!

    Lois, I applaud you!! I don't imagine that those "parents" are invited to too many outings. I almost think I know who they are. I guess we all know people who fall into the brain-numb category. I made my boys behave when we were outside of the home. (Except for close personal friends who were welcome to intercept on my behalf when I didn't correct fast enough!)

    Good for you, Lois!! I would have said something to those kids as well, although my response would not have been as polite as yours. I have zero patience for parents that act oblivious.

    Lois: you are not only kind and thoughtful, but direct and helpful during an insensitive and destructive situation! You have my applause!

    prhoshay: Have you tried Nutella on marshmallows? Just wondering....

    Well, a very Merry Christmas to everyone who is gardening, watching their trees bloom beautifully, and generally not wearing boots, mitts or gloves! This is what I woke up to this morning...Beautiful!
