Mommy Said There Would Be Days Like This

28 Jun

Mom has been under a little stress lately.  There I said it.  My mom is weird though.  Instead of letting things out, she holds things in and gets really quiet.  Like super quiet.  Which is so unlike women – come on all of us can admit that.  Us men know that when women go quiet, there is something brewing and trouble is on the horizon.

So here she is trying to exercise, lots of things on her ‘to do’ list, sweating deadlines and you know before too long she is going to blow.  Shaking my piggy head.  This can’t end well if you know what I mean.  So I think I’m going to let mom explain the rest.  Take it away mommy.  Remember I love you ❤

Thanks my sweets.  Mommy loves you too.  I’m better today.  Really I am.  But I think a lot of people can relate to stress – especially when things pile up and you just can’t get it off your back.  I’ve had lots of deadlines lately – work deadlines, September surprise deadlines, government deadlines, accounting deadlines.  Usually I just juggle everything and off I go but this past week.  WOW.  Everything added up until I ran into a wall.  Like for instance….

Here in Georgia we get our car tags every year which are due by your birthday.  My tag is coming up due so I was going to get it one day last week.  Went to the local government office to get it.  Stood in line for what seemed like forever cause you know there was only what 20 people in front of me.  Finally got to the window to realize that I forgot to get my emissions checked on my Jeep.  Really?  How could I forget that?!  I’ve only been doing it for YEARS.  So, I leave the office and in my favorite Scarlett O’Hara voice reminded myself that tomorrow is another day.  

The next day I get up early and decide that I will get my emissions/tag on the way to work.  I have plenty of time – famous last words.  I go to an emissions shop that I normally go to.  Guess what?  They are closed because their computer is down.  Lovely.  

So I go on down the street to another emissions shop and pull into the facility.  Their machine is working; however, the guy using the machine is pretty new at this.  You can tell because of his clumsiness in getting around everything.  I keep repeating to myself be patient.  Then the young kid… did I mention he was young too?…plugs his contraption into my car that turns on all of the lights on the dash – which is the point of said contraption.  But the young man starts getting excited telling me I’m not going to pass because my check engine light came on the dash.  This kid is acting like he won the lottery jumping around and waving his hands.  I thought maybe I had missed something.  He rambles on and on when finally he takes a breath.  I tell him that all of the lights come on during this stage to verify they work.  That’s when this kid did some incredibly stupid.  He told me oh no I was wrong.   

Okay so maybe at this point I closed my eyes and counted to ten while this kid continued his rambling about the check engine light.  I finally held my hand up to him and asked for the manager.  He went and got the manager.  Walking back to my car I could hear Mr. Excitable explaining to the manager what happened.  The manager stopped him and pretty much told him the same thing – that’s suppose to happen.  I was good.  I promise you I was good.  I didn’t say a word but sat there smiling like the southern gal I was.  But I admit, it took a lot.  And guess what?  My car passed emissions.  I got my paperwork, paid and told them to have a good day.  

I then proceeded back to the government office to get my tag.  The Gods were with me.  Maybe they were paying me back for not going off on the young kid at the emissions office because I was able to walk straight in and get my tag decal.  Now is that tag on my Jeep yet?  Nope.  I keep forgetting to put it on.  Shaking my head – I think I need a secretary myself.  

So I’m ahead of schedule so I’m thinking I need to take care of one more thing before work.  Remember back in April when I had my car accident?  The accident made one of my tail lights go out on the Jeep.  I had it replaced and last week the darn same light went out again!  Of course, that was bugging the heck out of me.  The place I had it fixed at only takes appointments.  Really, appointments at a service department.  What about last minute things that come up.  You have to make an appointment two weeks out?  Drives me crazy.  So I thought I might just go to this place this morning and check it out.  

I enter the office and it was full.  There was 5 consultants and they all had people they were helping.  So I stood waiting patiently.  No one acknowledged me but hey I’m good.  That was until a MAN walks in and everyone jumps to wait on him.  WHY do car places do this?!  I don’t get it.  What?  I’m a woman so I’m invisible?  I’m a woman so I don’t know how to think?  Okay that might have been the point that I turned in my southern charm card.  I might have said really, REALLY loudly, “So much for waiting in line.”  Maybe I said it too loudly because I do believe I heard a mouse fart in the corner.  Of course then someone finally acknowledged me and offered to help me.  

I told him what was wrong with my car and that I was just in to get it repaired.  I advised that it should still be under warranty and I wanted the bulb replaced again, that if it quit working again I would take it to the Jeep dealership.  Mr. Service Guy just smiled at me and get this had the gall to say – are you ready for this? – “Okay little lady we will do just that and it will be about an hour.”  What the heck?!  I think the look on my face might have been his first clue that I was fixing to blow.  I took a breath and told him, “First off, I would like to say thank you for calling me little and thank you for *finally* waiting on me.  However, an hour of waiting for you to replace a simple bulb is totally unacceptable.  I’ll give you 20 minutes and thank you.”  Needless to say, I was out within 15 minutes.  

So come on friends.  You know we’ve all had these kind of days, right?  LOL

    Oh yeah, you gotta teach them how to treat you! Our mom isn’t shy about letting someone know they crossed a line and that “little lady” thing would have caused an explosion with our mom. Inhale, say a couple REAL BAD HBO words, and chill. It’s in the rear view mirror now and that kid is still clueless!

    Your Pals,

    you’re more patient than I am these days. Being discounted for being a female is increasing with the new administration. Some men feel justified, now that they’ve been “given a voice” as if…

    Little lady… how demeaning. Indeed, “little man” would be a fun response. Or in a little girl voice, Ooooo the big stwong man helped little ole me???? grrrr… no one enjoys the DMV including those who work there. They should be allotted CBD oil tablets for medicinal reasons of course. Rant over… enjoyed hearing about yours. Congrats on being the adult in each circumstance.

      LOL – I love your oooo strong man. It would have come out if I had thought about that one. Men can be such idiots when it comes to women and cars. I could tell them stories. Stupid car shops. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

    Mommy says it’s the little pain in the butt things like this that REALLY stress her out. Somehow she can rally for the big stuff,but those little things are like poopoo speedbumps on the smooth road of life. P.S. She laughed out loud–in the library–when she read, “I do believe I heard a mouse fart in the corner.” Shhhhhhhh. 😉

    ” little lady” is the worst, like calling a lady idiot, very, very dangerous!

        Dear Bacon, it happens here too, why they don´t understand that, specially if you ( meaning me) have some kilos more than needed. And strange, it happens with cars.

        Oh no – no offense to you. I guess some men peeps just assume woman no nothing about cars except for where to put gas – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh. My. Goodness. When it rains it pours. Honey. Ya gotta vent. Ya just got to. Practice in your bathroom by yourself. It gets easier I promise you. We women for the most part have been treated as the weaker sex. That couldn’t be further from the truth. A certain tone, a certain look, a certain body position …. and don’t furget the charm. Sex appeal. Between grab um by the balls technique with your words and your charm as a woman’s man

    Grrrrrrr…… still have yet to finish. Wow! Now I’ll just sum it up by saying …. don’t stew and learn how to send a message that says don’t mess with me and I ain’t stupid because I wear a bra. Now I think I’m done! Whew! 😂

    • Piglove

      06/28/2017 at 7:20 pm

    maybe that are the days we should listen to demi lovato’s Let It Go….and we should act this way. we had to go to this test 3 times till we got the badge for 2 years and I had this song in my head as I was there the second time… I drove home without the badge but I felt better because I ruined the day of this unfriendly id*ot like he ruined mine. sorry but this guy was beyond belief and treated me like a doofus… yes, I’m NOT a man….sigh…
    btw: to change a simple bulb needs a while, the car makers made it eggs-tra difficult to hide the access to bulbs behind sharp stuff and you have to have hands like a toddler to find your way through that little mousehole they left for replacing a bulb….

    • Piglove

      06/29/2017 at 9:29 am

      Exactly!! The first time they changed said bulb, I watched them. It took three men to navigate the teeny tiny holes. Three men which means it would have only taken ONE woman – LOL. I pray the bulb doesn’t go out again. If it does, the Jeep needs to go to the big Jeep doctor. I’m so over it already. XOXO – Bacon
