Ben called me today. I was in the forgiveness phase and was putty on the floor when I heard his voice on the other line. And he sent me this:How could I ever have doubted that handsome face!? Anyway, turns out that some dope in his platoon snuck his cellphone and got caught, so they all got punished and lost phone privileges.
We got to talk for 3 hours!!! It was awesome! I miss him so bad!!
Anyway, that's the Ben update.
I can't go on without mentioning another Walmart adventure I had the other day! LOL, it's just too funny! Well, it wasn't when it happened, but it is in hindsight.
Saturday night, I had to go to Walmart to pick up a prescription refill, but I was running late and afraid it would close on me. So I ignored natures call and held it in, threw the kids in cart and ran into the store, b-lining it to the phamacy.
It was closed.
Just my luck!
Next stop, the ladies room.
I like to go to the family one in the back of the store, because it is easier to get my kids in there and they can't peek under the stales next to us. But when we got there, it was locked! I figured someone was in there, so I waited a few minutes.
As I was waiting, I noticed one of the "associates" was standing there staring at me. He was an older guy, hunched over and missing most of his teeth. When he noticed that I took note of him, he started chuckling and walked over to me.
"There's no one in there," he told me. "I saw you coming and I locked it." How rude, I thought!
"Why?" I asked, crossing my legs on the verge of doing the potty dance.
"See my tag?" he pointed to his tag. "This says Maintenance! M A I N T E N A N C E. That means that I can lock whatever doors I want because I have the key!" He laughed evilly. Okay, can I just say power trip!?
"Well, can you unlock it? I really have to go!" I pleaded.
"No, sorry. Time to clean!" And he shuffled off laughing histerically.
What. A. Turd!!
This is why I love Wal-Mart. They employ people with "special needs," give them the keys to all the important places, and promote them to management. No wonder they have a huge turn over!
