i'm a drunk magnet!!!!

i swear, i don't know what the deal was this weekend but i think i have apparently became a drunk magnet!  so not cool!  it all started with me picking jess up from work on sat. evening.  i needed a drink myself so i had her (jess) run into united to get me some cran-grape juice, a cape cod with a twist.  :)  i look over & this white truck comes really fast in the parking space next to me with only about 1-3" between us.  i looked at him a little like, "are you crazy?!?!?" and then he looked at me with this really weird look, i instantly knew he was drunk, not just i've had a few this evening, it was a look of i have been drinking since 10a this morning.  his face was all red & looked super drunk.  i then look up in front of me & jess is just standing there with this look on her face, like "mom what do i do?".  thank goodness she was not trying to get in the car when he pulled up because he WOULD have hit her, no doubt about that!  :(  he backs up & then proceeds to park like a normal person so jess could get in the car, again he looks at me all crazy like, i think it was the beer or something.  he was looking at jess with the perv eyes, so disgusting! anywho, i notice he has children in the truck!  um, i don't think so, as i back up i see the passenger get out & he puts one of those coors tall boys in the bed of the truck of course he was drinking as well.  so as i'm driving off, i ask jess did you see kids too, not for sure if i was imagining the kids or not & she said yes.  i almost didn't make the call but i just couldn't not make the call.  i called 911.  look, if you want to drink & drive i can't stop you, it's not right, it's against the law but you have kiddos in the car, i will call 911!  so i make the call.  i have made about 3 calls to 911 in my entire life & everytime i get so nervous.  i'm calm until i start talking, so weird!  i talk to the operator & tell him about the car, i leave the parking lot & then he asks me to go back & watch to make sure he doesn't drive off.  luckily he didn't move & within about 2-3 minutes the cop shows up.  no headlights on & just parks directly behind him so he can't back out & leave.  then as we leave because the cop shows up another one drives into the parking lot.  i feel much better.  i didn't stay behind to watch the proceeding events, although jess wanted to watch the breathalyzer test.  :)  she is nosey, we did our job & now hopefully he will think twice before drinking & driving & hopefully will never drink & drive with kids in the car!

here is an even more interesting story where i tell off this jackass at the laundromat...

ok so we are washing our comforters, we have a washer/dryer at home but our king comforter will not fit in the washer so we (me & hopp & q) made a happy little trip to the laundromat.  i went & got the girls & me a drink so we could have a little refreshment while waiting on the stuff to finish.  i sit the girls on the table to keep them from running all over the place.  well, there were 2 little boys tearing up the place one of the side pieces on the machines had come off & they were knocking it on the floor making a loud crashing noise several times & running & screaming all over the place.  now let me just say my girls were being angels, it's rare but it does happen, must have been the drink.  :)  i did let them down one time while i was moving from the washer to the dryer & they were crazy so i made sure to put them back on the table, now mind you i only used the dryer for 16 minutes, during the last 5 minutes this dude comes in & rudely says, "i'm going to use the table".  fine, i scooted the girls over nicely & he had half the table to himself.  now, earlier a nice young man was using the table behind the girls, he had no problem.  i was making sure the girls didn't knock any of his stuff over & then he asked how old they were & then he was done, all was good.  well the rude ass then decides to spout off, "that's just disrespectful".  i had enough, as he walked by me he smelled of liquor, not beer but almost like a fruity liquor, i can't guarantee he was drinking but he had that same red face & the smell so i can almost guarantee he was drinking.  now i had no proof so i didn't say anything but i wanted to say, "hmm disrespectful? isn't drinking & driving & public intoxication isn't disrespectful" but since i wasn't 100% positive on the drinking i didn't say that.  instead i said, "oh so not letting my kids run around screaming & tearing up the play would be respectful, give me a break!" not word for word but pretty damn close.  he then said, "i wouldn't bother me", because of course he was sitting in his truck this whole time waiting on his clothes.  i then told him, "well it bothers me when kids don't behave".  i got my stuff & headed out, he didn't even use the table!  he used the basket the whole time.  well, during this time q was laughing & trying to be silly & get in the conversation because i think she thought i was joking, i was totally pissed.  if you don't know me that well, i'm non-confrontational & it really surprised me that i even said anything!  so i can only imagine how shocked she was when i told her to cut it out & that i wasn't joking.  :)  i didn't cuss him out or anything just was very rude & blunt about how i felt about his stupid ass comment.  lets see would you rather my kids tear up the place or have them on a portion of your table being good & not bothering you?  that's what i thought!  :) 

hope everyone has a great week and enjoyed my weird drunk weekend tales!  :)
