I Got a Lot on My Plate

So here's a quick story from last night.

Our doorbell rang. There were two young guys. The convo went like this:

TILTE: "hi."
Guy: "hi- is your mom or dad home?"
TILTE: :::silence:::
(did I mention I'm thirty...?)

Aaaaaaaaaand CUT.

I got a lot on my plate and I'm having a shitty day, so you'll have to deal with music videos for the time being.

You should be flattered that you look 13. I wish I did! I feel as if you're a Blog VJ and you tossed that Tears For Fears video out just for me. I love that song and I feel like it really is a mad, mad, mad world.

Hope your plate lightens up, unless it's filled with yummy cupcakes and treats :) Chin up little buttercup.


You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

thanks, ally. unfortunately, it's nothing like cupcakes and treats.

Is your mom or dad home? Yikes, awkward!

That happened to me once. I raised my eyebrows at them and said I thought they were, and would they like my parent's number to check.
(I should add, I had no reason at all to raise my eyebrows at them, they'd looked in the front window on the way past to see me lying starkers on the lounge. Clearly I wasn't expecting company.)

At least you weren't at work. My first job was a bank teller and a man walked up to my window and said, "honey, are you old enough to work here?" I thought he was joking and I laughed - He had a completely serious face.
Times will get better and thanks for the music! Love it!

By the way the Black River Killer song Jason was obsessed with last year and played it all the time! Great album. :)

That happens to me pretty much daily. But I had an experience exactly like yours with a newspaper salesman, but he asked if the owner of the house was home, and I was all "Uhmmm I own this house?" and he responded "Really?!? Is that even legal?"

Super. No sales for you, home slice.

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

sadako- it was a little awkward. and by awkward, i mean it made my day.

12- you lay on the couch naked??? you're braver than i will ever be.

chrystal- thanks for pointing how i'm behind the times and jason is cutting edge.

kim- this was a newspaper guy too. it wasn't his sales tactics that made him lose the sell, it was our lack of money. and also because i think anyone who comes to my door and asks for my personal information is trying to jump me.

I answered the door once and talked to a politician for 10 minutes before coming in and realizing I had dried chocolate pudding on my neck.

p.s. I LOVED your flags of the world comment at my place, omg, lol hysterical!

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

i think the pudding-on-the-chin was the first entry of yours that i read. that's when i knew it was true love.

Sara Louise said...

That happened to me a couple of years ago. I just turned around and shut the door. I guess we should be happy that we don't look our age, but c'mon!
