That the school bus and the garbage truck have the loudest, squeakiest brakes on the planet and both come by the house at the crack of dawn?

Why is it when you have 10 mins before time for you to go home, a customer with their cart heaping full comes to your register, and wants to use 3 coupons, do a return and have 2 items with no price/upc

Why is it that I can juggle a purse, lunch bag, and two cups of coffee on my way into work, and only spill my coffee when I'm wearing my white top, and only after I walk into my office?

Why is it when I'm feeling quite generous and extremely happy and open doors for someone they walk through without so much as a Thank You?

Ugh, one reason I only try to buy print tops. I think I have a hole in my chin.

Do what I do, Sandy. Smile sweetly and say "Oh, I'm sorry, I thought I was doing you a favor. Go back out/in again so I can let the door slam in your face."

Smack her! My daughter does the same thing when asking if I can take her to work.

Why is it DD and her DB come over with 2 pies when I'm trying to lose weight and leave the pies at my house for me to be tempted by? AND...why is it that I fall into that temptation?

Or they come in at 8:50 for "just one thing" knowing you close at 9

Sitting here just giggling my backside off. Y'all are too entertaining.

Why is it that I can order charm packs and when they arrive I can't remember what I was planning on making with them?

Why is it that when you finally think the financial part gets better a hundred thousands bills fly into your mail box????

Why is it every time I sit down for a little me time, my DH or my kids think that is the time to put in their requests for my assistance?

Why is it that as the years pass I feel no different on the inside, but when I look in the mirror I wonder who that is staring back at me?

They seem to share the same attitude......

OOOhhhh, I have those people in my house too! I used to read non-stop, but the issue with that is that every single time I sat down with a book hubby, who can go a week without talking, started jabbering away to the point I couldn't read.

I had this discussion with my brother in law about 10 years ago. He said he didn't feel any different inside than he did when he was 18, but his body was letting him down. There are mornings when I look in the mirror I wonder when I got old.

It was a very slow forum day yesterday. I'm starting to feel like we are winning the war on spammers and didn't have much to do while I was sitting there with my feet up. ;)

That one is easy. Because you are a QUILTER. It's what we do, no matter how many of us say we are on a fabric diet.

Or.....why is it you can't hold your eyes open standing up at 7 pm but wait until 11pm and you are wide awake!?!?

Why is it no one can leave the remote on the end table? Why, when I have FOUR cordless phones in my house, I can't find a single one???

Why is that my next door neighbor uses me as a dog training tool? I walk out to the street to get my mail and stop to chat. Her dog jumps on me ( shepard mix) so I back up while she say's 'no'. I back up again and she tells me don't back up, I'm trying to teach him to listen. I back up again from the jump and he grabbed my hand. For gosh sakes woman. I didn't say anything, but I'm going to avoid her walks. lol

When the dog jumps up, raise your knee. After a few tines of getting a knee to the chest he will stop jumping on you and she'll have to find someone else to practice on.

When the dog jumps up step on his hind legs. They learn fast.
