My day was nuts

My son was annoying me every way he could today on purpose. A guy messaged me on Facebook asking for a ride to get cigarettes and beer. I told him I couldn’t because my son was doing cyber school and I had to stay with him. He messaged me about 3 asking again. I’m the kind of person I have hard time saying no. He is struggling with a bad case of alcoholism and I felt taking him there is me enabling him but I felt mean saying no so I told him I’d be down. Then we get to town and he only got the beer. If he only wanted beer he could have walked a few blocks down the street to a distributor! I never ever ask for rides even below zero I walk if I don’t have a vehicle. 4 times today I got scam calls from the same recording. I also notificed the same notification on my computer so I’m wondering what is going on. I ran a malware remover on my computers which was clear and am running a virus scan now. After I made my kids dinner I settled down to eat mine when the Netflix wouldn’t work. I went in to check on it and the cat ate my dinner so then I was stuck eating peanut butter on an english muffin for my dinner. The m&ms I posted a photo of I saw recently at Walmart and thought they sounded gross. Since they say Strawberry Nut I figured the photo would go with how nuts my day was!

I'm sorry the cat ate your dinner. This happened to me one time with my dog and now I never leave the plate unprotected. Wow, what a weird combination on the M&M's.

Yep it’s my fault leaving it there not the cats. I was just upset as I was so hungry. I thought the m&ms were an odd flavor as well.

You surely had a hard day. We must learn to say no, because most of the time those who ask could help themselves without annoying the others.

That was the case this time for sure. I have always had a hard time saying no and at times that has gotten me in trouble. At least he thanked me a few times and told me I'm gorgeous lol I don't want him to make it a habit of asking for a ride.

@shaggin I know how hard it is, but it is important to let people understand that sometimes we have other priorities.

Even better is if you sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the melty peanut butter. It is so yummy but I was looking forward to that dinner all day so I was upset to have to throw it away.

@Courtlynn rice I made with spinach, cheese and southwestern style corn. It was one of the healthier meals I’ve made for myself.

Thank you very much. This was the first I’ve seen of these m&ms as well. I don’t imagine they will be a very big hit.

My day started bad today with my son being miserable but I can deal with that hopefully the rest of the day is calm. I look forward to just laying down later and finishing the book I have been reading.

I would like to try those M&Ms. I hope your day gets better. I feel your pain - being one who also struggles to say no. It was kind of you, but sometimes people like that get a habit started real easy. How old is your son?

my mother has a problem with saying no too. I don't. I guess that trait skipped me. Today has been nuts for me. I had a hard time putting up a new shower curtain, it's snowing, I had hard time trying to get two ebooks to convert and I had to revise two articles on Textbroker.

I would delete that 'friend' off Facebook. People like that are totally selfish and don't care a jot about you. He called you gorgeous to flatter you so he can ask again. Not that you're not gorgeous of course.

What? No way someone would try to butter me up for more rides I thought I had a future career in modeling

I find people asking for a ride very strange. Especially in an area where there are good bus connections. My neighbour once asked me if I'm free to give him a ride somewhere. I kindly apologies and referred him to the bus number that goes there. I would never ask people for a ride unless it's an emergency.

I should not have laughed about the cat eating your dinner. You really had a rotten day. I hope you get everyone to leave you alone so that you can rest.

It’s okay you laughed I probably would have done the same thing if I had read someone else had posted this. My fault for leaving it where she could get to it. What the heck would a cat want to eat rice, southwestern style corn, spinach and cheese for.

He and I have a lot of similar issues so I am there for him when he needs someone understanding to talk to but I hate being put on the spot like he did. He could have posted on his Facebook wall asking if anyone going to town could have given him a ride then if I wanted to offer I would have.

Gosh, you couldn't take a trick today. The guy sounds a bit pushy asking for a ride.

Lol awesome pun there my friend I had a doughnut yesterday. It was flattened in the package so my son didn’t want it. Rather then waste it I ate it but I didn’t really care for it.

Sea salt caramel Pepsi? I bought my son one the day I took a photo of this candy. He said the soda was good but not great. I didn’t get to try any.

I've had a crazy round of customer service calls in an attempt to get my daughter's phone sorted out. I may post about it when the problem is fixed since it has its amusing aspects. Now I'm just frustrated!

I think these look gross. The regular peanut ones I love. The coffee ones and caramel ones are okay.
