Yesterday,I had just realized it was 2:45 and I had not yet gotten to the bank that closes at 3.I jumped in the car,sped down and parked.There is a pizza place next to the bank and in my rush I burst into the pizza place,not paying attention .They were having a birthday party for an elderly gent and it was quiet because they had just brought the cake in. I could feel my face going red but before I could leave the older man winked at me and said.."You said it was a good surprise,Fred,but I didn't think you was getting me a woman."Everybody started laughing and they made me stay for cake. It was a nice turn of events...Of course I had to scoot to the bank first then return for cake.

I'm sorry I can't help but laugh. That is funny. Makes me glad my banks are in stand alone buildings. So how was the cake and company?

That was so sweet of them all to "cover" your oops so graciously! I had a bit of a "blond" moment myself the other day...S/o had asked me to pick up his groceries and a few odds and ends on my way over. I really had to use the bathroom so I just loaded up and carried everything in the house at once. I was trying to kick my shoes off and get through to set everything down but our 4 yr old and 2 yr old were in my way and both talking to me. My s/o was trying to tell me something too. So I was totally distracted and my arms felt like they were going to fall off. I finally gave up and started dropping everything over the back of the recliner next to me...I didn't know his oldest son had stayed home from school sick and was curled up in the chair, I never saw him...at least there weren't any canned goods.
