Voting and Ignorant People


Took the kids to school this morning. A grandma is parked beside us. Mine are starting to get out of the van and she comes around to get her grandkid out of her truck. I tell her to go ahead, since my last 2 are pokey about getting out of the van.

She looks at Roo, says "OH you're the one with the triplets." with that tone.
I said, "Yes, I am" proudly.
She says, "You poor thing." Snotty.
I say, "No, it's a GOOD thing" with that tone, don't mess with me.
She says, "Oh, Okay." like whatever you say lady...

GAWD Dammit do I hate it when people have to comment on something they know nothing about or ASSume that it's the worst life in the world!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY?!?!? Why do you want to say something so negative IN FRONT OF MY CHILDREN that understand that they are triplets, etc. WHY??

What a way to start out my day.

Oh ya and Jon saw that I'm flagged for verification when I go vote this morning. Fabulous. I get pulled out of line and checked when I fly too.

I don't think I'm taking the littles with me to vote this year. They were not the best listeners this morning and with my mood right now, I don't think I have the patience for comments from people and 4 wiggly little people to keep track of while I try to vote. So as much as I'd love to take them, I think I'll pass this year. Even though when they woke up I told them Happy Voting Day. They asked when we were going to vote...

I don't understand why people comment at all... do they think they're going to "save" us from this horrible life we supposedly lead? If not, why not keep your mouth shut?!? I think it's time we brought back the b*tchslap, lol.

I told the girls last night that Mommy's gonna vote after they get done with school. ALL LAST NIGHT and this morning Kristin's been saying "We've gotta vote. All of us do." She's my miniature PSA girl!
