You know, Bill Engvall always used to say (and I always agreed with him) that stupid people should just wear a sign that says "I'm stupid" to save 'the rest of us' frustration in dealing with stupid people. Now like I said, I always used to agree with him..Til today.
Today it was my turn. :)
I went to get my haircut (about an hour away) and then reward myself by checking out a few craft stores while I was at it. (yes, I need to reward myself. I hate getting my hair cut). Well today was just one of those days where nothing goes right. I checked out the craft stores and could find nothing. Anyway, after leaving Hobby Lobby I realize (quite frantically) that my keys are not in my bag. I retraced my steps all through the store and even asked the cashier if I left them on the counter. Nope. Worst thing was, I went to the car and peered inside and STILL couldn't see them, so I was beginning to really panic.
Anyway, I call AAA (for once I brought the cell phone with me ~ another thing I hate to do, ) and they said someone would be there 'within an HOUR and could you please stay with the car'. An HOUR!! I could be a frozen block of ice by then! Windy too!
To cut a long story short, the AAA guy eventually came and got the car unlocked (took him forever, I was surprised as I thought a coat hanger would do the trick on our old banger) anyway I found my keys under my coat (which I also left in the car, I was too clever for my own good today ) and I set off for home.
As I neared home (I had an hour to think things over as I drove) I suddenly realized that, you know,.....I used to carry a spare car key in my bag for occasions like this...just in case I ever was so stupid as to lock my keys in the car......I wonder if.....could it still be in my purse......
Here's your sign!
*on telling my hubby about the spare key and AAA he laughed (of course) but then sheepishly admitted to having locked the keys in the car several years ago and he also called AAA. But after waiting for some time for them to arrive he suddenly saw that the passenger window was rolled down. All the way down.
See he wears a sign too!
