Not Me! Monday


Check out things that no one else did on MckMama!

I'm always torn when I post my Not Me! Mondays. I want to tell you amusing stories that let you see into a little window of my life, but I don't want to scare you away with all of the craziness that seems to happen in my house! I'm trying to walk a fine line here. . .

I do not currently have 6 different shades of beige painted in splotches on my living room wall. Ugh. Nope. I was decisive. I went to the store and I picked out the perfect shade the first time and we painted that very weekend! I think we're getting close though, maybe. . .

I recently did not take my children to the drive-thru at Wendy's. (I would never feed my precious off spring processed chicken nuggets and unhealthy fries.) Upon handing the '1st window' guy my money, he did not ask me "Umm, do you want your change back?" Startled I replied, "Yes, I do," only to hear his response of "Oh, some people don't want it back so I get to keep it." Uh, did that conversation really happen? 1. Did he really ask me that? 2. Did he really tell me he pockets people's money? No, definitely did not happen to me!

I did not line jump at King's Island this weekend. Nope, not me! And my best friend did not enable said line jumping by calling me first to see if I was already in line so she could jump in with me! Okay, there was a deal this weekend only at King's Island that current season pass holders could renew their passes for the 2010 season for basically $20 off the regular price plus get free parking all season. So, everyone and their brother was in line to get their passes renewed. The line was like 2 hours long! I don't wait in lines that long to RIDE the rides, let alone to buy a pass! So, when I got there, I called her back and jumped in front of tons of people by standing in line with her family. Sorry everyone I skipped in front of! Wait! I didn't do it, so I don't need to apologize, right?!?!

After telling my son to pick up his toys he did not look at me and say "Sorry about your luck, Mommy, I'm watching my show." Okay, first of all, as I've covered before, I do not let my children watch that brain-draining TV and second of all, my 4 year old son would NEVER say my favorite, rude, slightly mocking, didn't know I used it that much around him, phrase. Not me! Not my son! Ugh, I occasionally think that instead of saving for his college education, I would be better preparing him if I just started a fund to pay for his therapy sessions. . .

Okay, I think that's enough of a view into my family for this week. Hopefully next week's stories will involve how perfect my boys were and how I was a devoted house wife and kept the house spotless while preparing gourmet meals for my family, but who are we kidding? Not me!

Love it. Thanks for sharing--it made me laugh to stumble across this today.

I cannot believe that someone actually asked if you wanted your change back...that is ridiculously hilarious!

I love this post! Very good. Really?!?! Someone asked you if he could pocket your change? Did you report it? Wow.

I think I'll follow you for a while. Your couponing has me intruiged.

Wow. :) I worked at McDonald's as a teenager and we were NOT allowed to take tips. I'm pretty sure the Wendy's guy isn't supposed to, either!
