Oh wait... That was YOU behind me?? I guess now would be a good time to apologize for the dent in your front fender?

Powder, if you are a male, then I'm gay.

TMMW, I hope your hearing wasn't damaged by my horn blowing so long.

Notice how there is no logging the entry into the checkbook register on the male side. Typical

I slide in sideways...get out of the car with one hand on my .40, scan my card with my other hand quicker than a one-handed poker- dealin' cowboy...and get my money and am off and in 3rd gear faster than the man next to me can even count his change. ;)

Coffeypot said...

Dazee, I’m sorry! It just slipped out.

TMMW, Thanks! I’ll get over there asap.

ME3YO, we save them and enter them in the register at night. All at one time.

Kaydee, I would like to see some of your camera footage…check out the places you hang…

Wrexie, Spoken like a true cowgirl. Calamity Wrexie!

OMGosh this made me laugh. Sadly, so much truth to it, too.

Happy Friday! :)

Geez, if my female hormones debilitated me anymore than they already do, I would just rip that ATM off the wall, and keep on going.

Have you been talking to my husband?
P.S. If you have a kid in the car you can make them get out of the car and go to the window for you.
