Conversation of the day...

I promise this won't become a pattern, but I needed to share this conversation with you. It is fresh in my mind, and I wish it were not! This morning I took the kids to Walmart to do my grocery shopping. When I have an extensive shopping trip ahead of me, I get the kids happy meals and let them eat lunch while I shop. It makes my world just a tad easier! Anyway, today's HM toys were a pirate ship and a princess crown. You would have thought we won the lottery. The kids did a great job during our time there, but then came the check out line.
So, here is the conversation that followed... (between Me, Claire, and the Odd Check Out Guy)

C- "MOM, MY BOTTOM HURTS!!!" (imagine this in a LOUD three year old voice!)
E- "Claire, please use your quiet voice, that's not something we say loudly!"
OCOG- "Did she say her bum hurts?"
E- (awkward laugh) "yes."
OCOG- "Oh, 'cause mine does too, but probably for different reasons!"

WHAT????? Are you kidding me! I then proceeded to try to ignore him. I turned my attention to Luke. I said...
"Luke, don't drop your SHIP."
OCOG says...
"Did you just say SH** in front of your kid?!"
me...
"NO, COULD I PLEASE PAY NOW!"

I have never wanted to leave Walmart so badly in my whole life... and that is saying a lot!!! Oh, wait, this incident might rally some competition. Wow, why do I continue to go there, why?

On a side not... did you read Pioneer Woman today (it is titled "My brother, my filter)? Go read it, make sure to click on the link at the bottom of today's post. I promise you will laugh out loud. I sure did!!!

Oh my! I can't believe someone would actually say, first of all that their bum hurts and secondly use foul language in front of your children! WOW! I had an odd checkout lady at WalMart today to, but it was because she asked me 100,000,000 questions about the kids and was over friendly. So sorry...hope you don't come in contract with any other weirdos this week!

Your stories are so funny. Must be that quality training that Wal-Mart is giving check-out reps is working. My response to them is "turn up your hearing aid and turn off your motor mouth." I used to think they needed intelligence tests for hiring folks. Now I think they need emotional stability tests.

Every day I'm more and more convinced that people are just weird. That said, his comments were pretty funny.

Loved the Pioneer Woman blog. Let's look in some of your mom's albums and see if we can get some of our pics on her site.
