Customer? Cashier? Still Bored...

This afternoon I went to pick Nick up from work at his riveting job at the local supermarket. He comes out, hops in the car with a huff and I ask how his day was. Sometimes that is a loaded question but hey, concerned parent that I am, I always ask.

The morning was slow, the afternoon busy, blah, blah, blah. He then goes on to tell me that during the quiet time he was reading some of the magazines that were up at the register. Funny ,I do that too when I'm waiting in line! Weird! He gives me some random facts about Jon & Kate (I never watch the show but he seems to have a weird fascination with it). Okay, good info on to other topics.

I had several errands to run - had to pay the car tax, stop by the post office, go to the bank, go to DMV to renew my registration and then get the car inspected. Noticing a trend here? I ignored my car and now had to make up for it all. While we're driving around the boy is throwing out random entertainment news and finally I was like "How slow was it in there today?" Apparently, very slow. Needless to say, I do NOT have to watch Entertainment Tonight tonight. Thanks, son.

And the whole car thing? We have three cars. Mine is the newest. In the last week we have had all three of them inspected. Guess whose was the only one to fail.


Un-freakin-believable!!! Now I have to figure out what the problem is (a sensor) and our dear friend, Joe, who is the mechanic who actually did the inspection, will help us get it taken care of. So not fair!!

Just wanna say, I had a good laugh with your blog's tagline: "...600 miles away from my insane family still isn't far enough!"

Just checking in....had to laugh about your car being the only car to fail...sounds like MY van. It always has some kind of ping-y, pong-y noise going on or something else rattling around. Mine reminds me of that old commercial, "Rattle, rattle, thunder-clatter, boom, boom, boom.." HA! :)
