What the F Friday!

I apologize for the title, but I couldn’t think of anything better.  But, it’s Friday and I’m going to post about a couple things that happened today, that make me think to myself “WTF?”

After preschool this morning Lainey and I decided to go out to lunch.  We went to this cute little place in Belmont called Likity Split.  It has good food, but I jokingly nicknamed it to my husband “Likity Slow,” because it’s usually slow.  When we walked in a man smiled at Lainey and I and said, “Hi.”  I politely smiled back and said Hi.  Lainey wondered who he was, and I told her I had NO idea.  Later he walks up to our table and says this:

“Do you live across the street?”

Me:  “What?”

Him (pointing across the street):  “Do you live across the street?”

Me (realizing he’s talking about the trailer park across the street):  “Um, No.”

Him:  “Oh, cuz you look just like this lady I delivered cookie dough to over there.”

Later, I called Shawn and told him about this, and I think he thought the guy was maybe trying to pick me up.  I’ve decided that asking someone if you know them from the trailer park is probably one of the worst pick up lines ever!  Ugh.


Next, we headed to


I heart Target.  I only went to return something, but then I wanted to buy a baby gift for my SIL who is hoping to have my nephew any day now.  Lainey also picked out a couple things from the dollar bin.  I also heart the dollar bin!  When we went to check out I let Lainey give her items to the cashier.  Then Lainey decided she wanted to swipe my debit card.  I said she could, but she had it upside down, so I helped her flip it over.  When we were in the process of swiping, the cashier says to the woman behind us (who only had two things):

“You can go to the service desk and check out, this looks like it’s going to be awhile.”

At first I stopped and looked around wondering what she was talking about, but then I realized she was talking about Lainey and I.  WTF?  Rude.  Fortunately, the lady behind us looked at the cashier like she was a moron, and said she was fine with waiting.


Then, we get home and I see this in my yard:


That’s weird.  I’m not having a yard sale.  Apparently, two of my neighbors are and they thought my yard looked like a perfect place for their sign.  Again, WTF?  Honestly, if they would have asked, I would have been fine with it.  But, they didn’t even ask.  Am I the only one who thinks that’s rude?  I was going to knock it down, but then I didn’t need to because the wind did it for me.  Ok, so I look a little suspicious, but I swear I didn’t do it!

If I were you, I'd have my children go pee in the neighbor's front yard. You can do it yourself if you like, but unfortunately while kids can get away with this sort of thing, grown ups usually end up on lists.
