Not Me Monday

We all have our "there is no way I would ever do that, except that I actually did" moments... MckMama pays tribute to these moments with "Not Me Monday". Enjoy mine, and then jump over to MckMama's blog to see more!
So this was quite a week...

It wasn't me who managed to lock my keys in my truck twice in less than a week. And since I of course have never made a spare, I got the distinct pleasure of calling the locksmith, twice. Who by the way, also reminded me that my temp tags were expired and technically he shouldn't even let me in my truck without up to date plates - which of course were sitting on my kitchen counter and have been for a month. So that would've been an easy fix, except I was at work an hour away. So he tells me "That's fine, I just need to see your drivers license to confirm you are the owner of the vehicle". Perfect. Except that my driver's license is locked INSIDE the truck in my purse. If I had grabbed my purse in the first place, I wouldn't be in this mess. Fortunately, I smiled pretty and played with my obviously blonde hair, and he let it slide - BOTH times.

I guess the good news is that while the 1st call cost me $50, the 2nd call was free. I'm pretty sure I either got the "this dumb blonde is going to be a great customer" discount or the "I feel bad charging a total retard for stupidity she obviously can't help" discount. Not sure which.

Oh, and it also wasn't me who even after that fiasco still hasn't made a spare. Awesome.

It was also NOT me who, after spending an hour cleaning the bathroom earlier in the day, woke up my 7 year old from a dead sleep at 10 P.M. and made him clean up the freshly created urine splashes on the back of the toilet.

And it was certainly NOT me who took an entire pile of clean clothes and threw them back in the dirty laundry basket because I was too lazy to fold them and put them away. I would NEVER create more work for myself later by doing that!

What did you not do today?


  1. Hi- found your blog thru mckmama's blog hop! i really like your blog! :)

  2. I love the "dumb blonde discount" comment! I'm blonde, but I definitely don't take any offense at jokes like that-- I might be one of the only blondes who thinks they're funny!

    I actually read on another blog last week that if you lock your keys inside the car, you can call someone who has a spare set of keys (the remote access kind) and have them click the "unlock" button into their phone, hold your phone up to the car's lock, and it'll open! I thought it was just an urban legend, but someone actually said they tried it and it worked!

  3. You had me cracked up over the car keys - I've done that so many times myself!
    And thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

  4. Thanks for the comment! I enjoyed reading your blog as well, and your boys are handsome. Love their names too. :)
    Oh, and I once locked my keys in my car while it was running, because I had backed into someone and got out to check the damage. lol :)
