WTF Friday


1) So. Imagine you're running late for a soccer game. The kid's buckled in the back seat, you've got everything you need--the ball, water bottle, chairs--so you back out of your driveway.


And smash straight into hubby's car--because well, DUH--you forgot he was behind you.


Did I even look in the rear view mirror?


SO. I just cost our family an extra $500 dollars in deductibles, because of my own stupidity!

2) What happened to BASIC MANNERS, people? You let someone in front of you in traffic, or hold a door open, and there is nothing given in return. NOTHING. No wave, no thank you, not even a G**D*** SMILE!


Where the Fudge did your humanity go?


I find I'm always the one saying, "Oh, excuse me," or "Sorry about that," or "Thanks."


You people SUCK. *rant over*


3) Daylight Savings Time -I kinda despise you.

Please don't take effect this weekend.

My child will pop up earlier in the morning now, and it will get depressingly darker sooner.

Which only makes me feel more like this:

That is all.

ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!

Wow... this was a wonderful edition of WTF Friday...

I'm exhausted after just reading it!

Yeah, DST is not my friend, either. Phooey. Um...and I've had an absentminded mishap with the hubs car before. *sigh* Just have a glass of wine and move on. Someday it really will be funny.

A great post - our clocks changed last week-end so we are back to dark, dark nights. So many things I agree with - especially the bit about manners. If i hold the door open for someone and they just sail through with no word of thanks it makes my blood boil

Janet Johnson said...

So sorry to hear about the car. What an awful feeling. :( Hope your weekend gets better!

Kristin said...

I feel like so many people are just in a general bad mood right now. Hopefully the holidays will help! Bummer about the car!

Kelly said...

Oh, I forgot about DST!
And oh, man! You must have just cringed when you hit the car!! I did that in high school. Backed up my mom's car into my beater of a car.

Maddy said...

Sorry about the car, but I totally agree with you with #2. Sometimes I go out of my way to open the door for someone (if they are trailing behind) and they don't even have the courtesy to say thank you! In the words of Stephanie Tanner, "HOW RUDE!"

BTW - Why don't you email your little avatar (sans Write Brained) so I can make a cute button for your blog? :) It'll take me 2 minutes! I *really* want your button up there, you were one of my first blog friends :)

*hugs* for the car. I pulled out of a parallel parking spot at my son's school. There was no cars coming when I checked, but the truck in front of me had boxed me in. So I was watching out for its bumper and hit another vechicle instead. The driver saw me pulling out but didn't stop. She honked though. Too bad I don't have nanosecond reflexes. ;)

Darn it about daylight saving. :(

anhesty said...

i feel the same way about that. i am always saying sorry, excuse me as well. booo on those that dont return the favor of a simple smile or wave.

and im sorry for your lil accident. at least no one was hurt.

Stefanie Wass said...

Oh,Christina! My heart goes out to you! And now I don't feel so bad for the little mistake I made this week...losing the Clorox toilet wand in the toilet, plugging up the whole darn thing!

Hope your weekend turns out okay!
I was looking forward to that extra hour of sleep until you reminded me that the kids will be up early! Uggh...

Meredith said...

Haha, I totally backed into my dad's car a few years ago on my parents' driveway and felt like an idiot. Don't worry, it'll become a good joke soon :) And I hate when people don't thank me for opening the door! I mean, come on!

Matthew Rush said...

You make a couple great, if depressing, points here. Thanks a lot Christina!

Sharlene T. said...

Well, at least, it's Friday! And, it's over... I backed into my sister's car that way... and, locked my keys in my car FIVE times in October! Where was my brain!?! Have some tea and enjoy the sunset... Come visit when you can...

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Wow, I'm sorry about your car. I'll bet it happens surprisingly often, but that doesn't make up for it.

As for manners, people would have to notice the existence of others to behave mannerly toward them.

And daylight savings? You know my thoughts on that!

Lynda Young said...

Sorry to hear about the car. It's scary easy to do.

Melissa said...

Yikes about the car! *Hugs you to make you feel better!*

I'm sorry to hear that.

OMG I HATE people who don't wave when you let them in. It's like...umm I didn't have to do that just now, you know that right? Or people who don't use the turn signal. UGH.

I don't like winter cause the days are so short. It makes me feel weird!

Krispy said...

Aww, so sorry about your cars! :(

Ditto on rude people. What the heck.

Bright side of daylight savings is at least we're getting an hour instead of losing one. I hate that. -__-

Little Ms J said...

I have a pumpkin face full of the good candy that will make all your Friday blahs go away. Where can I send it? :-)

Finding Beauty said...

Oh Christine I feel your pain! I did the same thing last year. I backed out of our garage and right into Jon's ! It wasn't fun. I hope that makes you feel a little better!

Lourie said...

Oh I am so sorry about your boo-boo! It just really points out to us how much we run on auto-pilot.

People are rude. So rude.

I am not a big fan of the end of Daylight Savings. It already gets dark early enough. Can't we just keep it this way?

Clara said...

Man, number 1 sucks but I can totally relate to you. Number 2, well, I understand 100% where you're coming from because this also happens to me. Sometimes I feel like a big fat sucker, but I shall not give up on my good manners! =)

Laura Pauling said...

So you don't feel bad - I've pulled out of my driveway and hit two different care - my dad's and a friend's b/c they were parked in my natural curve out of my driveway.
