reblog: I still haven’t changed my ways! “Dinosaurs are cool” from 3/7/13

So I was reading my old posts on a different site and came to a conclusion……I am either an idiot or I just have a sense of the ridiculous that is unusual in a human being…..Can’t believe how many times I have been in “trouble” with various and sundry retail establishments for doing dumb things……………

Can’t believe how many people I have confused over the past two years of miscellaneous postings……….so……………..I decided to turn over a new leaf……well it’s actually an old leaf that I left behind in my various adventures but I thought it was probably a good idea to drag it back out of the closet and give it a good wash-up…………..ya know….it’s the “act your age” leaf…………….

George says it doesn’t matter how much I wash this particular leaf, it isn’t going to do a danged bit of good as I “won’t be able to help myself and will act stupid”……but I am determined.

In an effort to prove me right (and consequently my loving hubby totally wrong) I accompanied George to the local dollar store…..he wanted to get a toy for a friend of ours and I was going along just to “behave appropriately” and prove my new leafiness to him……………………

So, I drove….George hates to drive and besides my car LIKES to go so I drove us………we parked in a safe spot far, far away from anyone else and wandered into the store……….George went straight over to the toys and quickly found just the right one…….he then said “I’m going over to the gardening stuff” and left me in the toys…………….I was really proud of myself for doing NOTHING but looking when I spotted a dinosaur……now it wasn’t just ANY dinosaur, it was a three foot tall mechanized monster walking growling dinosaur………………….and the box said “try me, I walk and talk”…………………

I picked up the box and thought how does this work while pressing bits and pieces of the dino in an effort to have some sound………………I finally 9since I couldn’t find a switch anywhere) took it out of the box and turned it upside down……….and found a switch……………….so (of course) I turned it on……and it did nothing!

I set it on the floor in disgust and it immediately started to walk across the toy aisle, bumped into the shelf and knocked a bunch of stuffed animals off…then it started to growl…………….ohhhhhhhh! how cool is this!  It had a deep horrible sounding reptiley sort of growl and it was attacking all the little stuffed animals, shoving them across the floor while it was walking………………

and of course, the manager shows up and screeches at me to “stop playing with all the toys”

I (of course) said “are you talking to me?”  She screeched “yes, you! what are you doing?”  I said……………………….”well, I followed my husband over to this aisle and as he was leaving this thing (and I pointed at the dinosaur) started to chase him and attack all these animals”…………………………………

George (of course) heard all the noise and wandered (very slowly) back over to us and said “are you ready Hun?”  as if there wasn’t a screeching manager and a growling dinosaur in the aisle with me…….so I grabbed my new leaf (sure she did) and said “I’m ready when you are”  and asked the manager if she could move aside so I could leave now……………………..

George escaped without any negative consequences but I have been banned from yet another store……..

  1. That story reminds me of my husband. Waiting in a medical office with me he used to get into all the drawers and take stuff out and play with it, blowing up plastic gloves, etc, stealing kleenexes, you nanpme it. He never changed until he got esophagus cancer and that took the fun out of him. Bummer.

  3. Suze, i have a friend who enjoys running his cart into the displays of stacked cans at the grocery store and then hides in aisle 6 to watch the melee. It is so bad that even my local WalMart, the sweetheart store of challenged people, has banned him from shopping there. LOL Good luck with the new leaf.

  4. The worst I’ve ever done is knock an Ivanka Trump dress off the rack at Winners and “accidentally” roll over it with my cart. But man, did that feel good.
