random things from the weekend…
yesterday, i added new items to the shop.
and hey…are you guys tired of my top knot and scarves yet? i can’t get enough of scarves as belts.
i guess it’s my thing right now.
yesterday, merl tweeted:
“is it just me being a grumpy gma or teenagers these days absolutely retarded? natural selection is a myth.”
yes merl, they are absolutely RUDE.
last night, the boys and i went to see despicable me. (it was great, btw!) the theater was packed by the time we got in there. there were hardly any seats left and the ones that were, were being “saved” for others. it was irritating. i’m guilty of saving seats for people in situations such as this, but when you’re the one looking for a place to sit…it’s effin frustrating as all get out. we had no other choice but to sit two rows back from the screen. ugh. oh well. as we’re waiting for WrW to come back from gathering popcorn, candy and cherry icees…i witnessed some asshole teenagers being smug and smart assy. so as i’m standing there, waiting to grab WrW’s attention…i see some older woman walking around, asking, “hey are those seats taken?” only to be told, “yeah, these are saved.” over and over again. i can hear her mumbling under her breath and i can see that her blood is starting to boil. in the row behind me, there are two teenagers (boy and girl, bf/gf) saving about 5 seats. the older woman doesn’t hear them say that those are saved, so she sits. they tell her that those are saved and she says, “come on really? i’m here. where are you friends? do you really need to save all 5 seats?” and the kids are just so rude to her. laughing at her and basically acting like she’s a freaking lunatic for getting upset. so i hear the teenage boy say, “woah, i guess she wants to see this movie THAT badly.” to which his gf giggles and agrees. dumbass. you’re here…YOU don’t have anything better to do you effin dork, then see a kid movie on a saturday night. (well neither do i, but i have a 9 year old. excuse granted.) THEN…the woman goes around to the other side of the row and asks again. she’s even more irritated. the kids are trying to explain that their friends are coming, they’re out getting snacks and things…so the lady gets pissed, turns around and TRIPS DOWN THE FREAKING STAIRS IN FRONT OF EVERYONE. omg, i was so embarrassed for the poor woman. and then, i hear the stupid teenager say, “she totally deserved that for getting so pissed.” he laughs and his stupid effin girlfriend laughs. they were so smug, i wanted to climb over my damn seat and smack that smug right off their faces. why would they laugh about her falling? what if she hurt herself? i was just appalled. i don’t care if she was in the right or not…they were being rude. so the gf kept talking about it, saying how angry that woman was. and i have to tell you…i cannot STAND IT when people blow other people’s emotions out of proportion. you have no idea how that woman is feeling, you effin little twit…she was frustrated and now she’s embarrassed and you’re being rude. so this is my last straw. and because i’m “old” and a buzz kill and always stand up for the underdog, i say to them…”she’s not mad and frustrated at YOU. we all bought tickets for this movie and this theater is packed. i think people are just worried they won’t have a place to sit. she’s just frustrated. you would be, too.” the woman next to me agreed and those stupid teenagers just stared at me and nodded, dumbfounded, i think.
you know why? cuz i’m a cool, 30 year old mom with a top knot. and just told them what’s up.
i just think that people should put themselves in other people’s shoes more often.
so merl…this rant was dedicated to you, my love.
you’re not an old gma…teenagers these days are assholes.
my son was saying this, with a deep southern accent this am.
he was trying to get the pull toy out of lexington’s mouth, but she just wouldn’t let go.
so taylor kept telling her, in the accent, that he needed the toy for an experimentation explodination that he was working on.
it was funny. you had to be there.
my kid is funny.
i pick them up on the 16th!
