Them's Fighting Words!


I can forgive the teenage checker at Michael's for a lot of things, including being incredibly slow to sort rolls of change into the register.

What I cannot forgive her for is this:

As we waited, I handed Molly a painting we were going to get framed.

Me to Molly:


"Be careful with that painting. It's over 50 years old."

Cashier to me:

Oh, did you paint it?

Wow.

Hahaha - That is HYSTERICAL! I can say that because I know you in real life and you do NOT look old!

She's obviously really, really bad at math. Good thing she works at Michael's where things are automated. If she worked at Hobby Lobby, she'd be doomed.

Um, yeah. NO.

Clueless, I tell ya. What would these whipper snapper clerks say if we didn't dye our hair?!

As always, you made me laugh when I read your post. I fervently hope that I look like you when I turn 50.

These poor kids dont know what real people look like. They've grown up with re-touched photos and plastic surgery-ed everything.
You are still one of the most beautiful women I know... inside and out :)

Yeah, that's not okay, but it's really, really funny.

A couple of years ago someone asked me if I was 12. I was 21...

Oh no! But seriously - she must not have heard everything you said. You don't look a day over 49.

Oh, that's awful and so, so funny!!! Of course you don't look anywhere near old, but it's funny because people are so stupid. Sometimes I can't get over how stupid.
