Crazy Lady

Hello, Crazy Lady. Not so nice to meet you. We recently bought patio furniture for our new backyard at Home Depot. Greg saw earlier in the week that the set is now $100 cheaper than what we paid for it a few weeks ago. Because we love to save a buck and we are spending a ton of money right now, I trekked 20 minutes over to the Home Depot to see if we could get a $100 credit. I mosied over to Customer Service. The guy told me he was going to be awhile with the customer he was helping and sent me down to the Contractor desk (clearly, I am not a contractor). One of the guys there asked me what I needed, and I explained to him what I was looking to do. He handed it off to another guy, who told me that I must go back to Customer Service. Then I kind of lost it on the guy. I don't know what came over me, but I just felt like the buck kept being passed around and that everyone else in the store was more important than giving me back my $100. If you knew me in real life, you would know that I am pretty patient and even keeled. Plus, I have worked in service and know what it is like for people to yell and scream. So, this was really out of character for me. I ended up not getting the $100 credit, but that is a whole other story. Turns out it was never $100 cheaper. Thanks for trying though, Crazy Lady.

After my Home Depot adventures, I headed to Wendys to get a Strawberry milkshake because all of a sudden the baby really really needed one. I pulled up to the drive through and placed my order. The woman informed me that they do not have strawberry just chocolate and vanilla. At first, I wanted to yell out my car window for everyone in line to hear "Then why do you have a beautiful picture of a strawberry milkshake with whip cream and a cherry on top on your menu tempting a pregnant lady?" Luckily, I was able to control my inner crazy and just told her that I was no longer interested. The good news is that there was a Jack in the Box close by and I was able to get one there. Thank you, Jack for helping out the Crazy Lady.

Now, I think I need to stay home and not talk to anyone until I can get the crazy a little more under control.


  1. I could totally see myself doing the same things! You are not alone!! I hope that the strawberry shake helped to make you feel better! It sounds very tasty!!

  2. Ha! I'm so glad I'm not the only one that has the "crazies"! There's nothing worse than craving something and not being able to get it. Thank goodness for Jack! :-)

  3. I feel you! I've had a few of these moments lately! Yay for strawberry milkshakes!
