Okay, maybe this is just confirmation that someone needs to come out, but I got mad at a stranger's kids today.
We went mini golfing and since I got a hole in one we got a scratch off card and won 40 free game tokens. My kids won a whole bunch of those annoying little tickets that you redeem for cheap, crappy toys. Of course, you have to stand in line to put said tickets into a ticket counter before you can redeem them. The line was sooooo long and Abby was on my back in a mei tai. Which is quite comfy, but after 2 hrs was getting old. We waited in line for half an hour to get our tickets counted (the guy at the front of the line had 3K tickets - no I'm not kidding!).
Anyway. We finally get to the front and I have to kneel down (you know that's easy in my condition) in order to feed the tickets correctly. Nate is "helping" me, which is actually impeding me because he keeps stepping on the strings of tickets and breaking them. Which is fine, we only had about 200 tickets, so it wasn't a huge deal.
Except for the running commentary from the two little girls behind us. They were about 7 or 8 and were there with this big day care. They kept making snotty little comments the whole time. "Are you almost done, lady?" "Ummm, can you hurry up? We have to pee." "Oh my God, you are so slow."
Finally, I turned around and said, "Look. I am going as fast as I can. And don't tell me about having to pee, as neither of you have babies in your tummies. But if you two do not shut your mouths and stop being rude I will tear these tickets apart and go as slow as I possibly can."
They just stared at me.
See! I am a bad person! Ack!
Our grand total from the tickets: 9 four packs of Now 'N Laters.
