Little old ladies . . .

Even though my day started off not so great, it ended with a HUGE smile.

Ok - so I ran to the the grocery store tonight to pick up dinner and a few other things (you know the drill, you go in for butter, and come out with eggs, 10 packs of frozen veggies b/c they were 10 for $10?) See this blog (round 3) to see how that's going to end up.

Anyway - I'm checking out and as I'm bagging my things (yes I use the self check out - because the 14 year old they have working the register? Yeah, I like my bread ON TOP of the groceries and soap/chemical products? Yeah, I like them bagged SEPARATELY - I'm weird like that, I know.) So, I'm bagging my things and I see this this kid (probably about 20-22) walking by with his jeans pulled down half way around his ass. I know I'm getting old(er) but I will never, ever get this look. Ok, I got it when Marky Mark did it in the "Good Vibrations" video - but he wore cute Calvins and it was ONLY the waist band of the Calvins that showed - not half of his ASS!! Although - hindsight - might not have been that bad.

Ok - back to my point - I'm sorry, my brain is still in vacay mode. So, as he walks by - half ass showing and all - I must have given a dirty look or a look of disgust (really he didn't even have cute underwear on - I mean if I HAVE to SEE IT - it better be cute or designer - and it was neither.) So there I am, dirty look giver, and this sweet little old lady (I swear she had to be 80) comes up to me and says: "I bet he thinks he's all that and a bag of chips. I just hate the way they wear their jeans like that."

Honestly, I thought she was going to yell at me for giving the dirty look - like maybe this kid was her grandson or something - based on how my day started - it really wasn't that far of a stretch.

But wait! There's more!

That's not ALL she said.

This is sooooooooooooo funny - you better not take a drink or anything . . . .

Seriously - I'm warning you - this is HILARIOUS . . .

She then says, "they (the kids) wear them that low, like they're hanging off their wieners!!"

People - this was the SWEETEST little old lady and she said WIENERS!!! I thought I was going to die! I am not making this up!

I think I just caught a glimpse of myself at 80 years old.

Rock on grandma, rock on . . . .


  1. That is awesome!! Thanks for the early morning laugh!!!!!!! :)

  2. That is totally going to be you as an 80-year old!! I hate that look, too and that kid deserved getting "the look"! I can't believe that look has been going on now for so long. I'm so ready for it to be out of style, already!!

  3. Go ahead Grandma! That was freakin' hilarious :-) I'll bet she's seen a thing or two in her day!

  4. LOVE. IT!!!!! and that will SO be YOU at 80!!!

  5. I bet grandma wants one of those big, black pee pees.

  6. so THAT is what I will be like when I am old! Just like now, but probably shorter
