#91-THURSDAY'S PICK (Patty) to #19 (Finaly Had a Comeback)

I love reading your comments.  Therefore I have decided to pick a comment once a week and post it.  Of course this will fall FLAT if you guys aren't making comments!

Here is today's pick:  To  #19 Patty (my daughter) said..."Love it. I've done something like this before when I lived in Dallas. Here we go...

Well, I was running late and needed to pick up something at the grocery store. Of course, it was packed, hot as hell out side and I couldn't find a parking spot. So, being a 20-something year old  I saw the handicapped spots. I was nervous to do this, but I was late! So as I got out of my car and rounded the back of it, some lady starts yelling at me that I don't have a handicap sticker and that I don't look handicapped.

So, when my mouth opened I started talking like a deaf person and said, in a very muffled voice, "I'm sorry, I'm deaf and couldn't read your lips. Can you please stand in front of me and repeat what you said?"
Needless to say she was speechless and just walked off.  So, I ran quickly into the store, got what I needed and got the heck out of there.

Lesson learned...don't park in the handicapped section unless you're really quick with comebacks."
THAT'S MY GIRL!  AS HER HUSBAND WOULD SAY, "APPLE-TREE!"  (as in the apple doesn't fall far from the tree).


  1. LOL. That made me laugh!! I'm following you back! I love the name of your blog!!! :) I got my followers because I do a lot of blog hops, plus I'm running giveaways in order to bribe them into following ( yep I said it. I'm bribing them LOL) Adorable blog!!

  2. Even worse is when you're in the handicapped bathroom stall taking your sweet time because you really, really needed to go and you're so glad you found this wonderful bathroom with this wonderful huge stall and anyway after a long time, you finally wander out and there's a poor, old, angry lady sitting in a wheel-chair who says, "Thank God, I thought you'd never finish."

  3. Oh, my The Desert Rocks! I haven't had that happen, but I always take a big handicapped stall if available, because I am big and stalls are small, and I always have kids with me. It is impossible to move around with 3 people going potty while touching NOTHING and getting their clothes arranged, never mind the fact that if it is an auto flush toilet, I have to hover with my hand over the sensor so as not to traumatize my kids when it whooshes while they are trying to tinkle!
