Random Guy at Walmart

To set the story properly, I have a photo. Obviously I care about y’all a lot because taking a picture of your own vehicle in the Walmart parking lot is a little douchey, but I did it anyway. I tried to pass it off like I was holding the phone up to see the screen in the sunlight, but I’m not sure I pulled it off.

Anyway, Random Guy at Walmart saw me park and walk away from this (my Can-Am’s still in the back because my husband picked it up from the shop last night):

Random Guy at Walmart: “Your husband lets you drive those around?”

Me, in my head: Wait…what? Did he really just say that? It’s bad enough I have to scrounge through the leftover school supplies because the teachers decided to add to the freakin’ list, but now I’ve got to deal with random morons?

Me, out loud: “Only when I make him sandwiches.”

Random Guy at Walmart: *looks confused*

Me: “It’s my truck. My ATV. Nobody lets me drive them.”

Random Guy at Walmart looks at the four-wheeler and back at me: “No, really.”

Me: “Yes, really. But I let my husband drive them if he makes me sandwiches.”

Random Guy at Walmart figures out I’m the Crazy Lady at Walmart and walks away.

Next year, I don’t care what kind of list the school sends over the summer. I’m not buying school supplies until I get the lists from the teachers. There are way too many random people at Walmart.

    I am picturing this random woman dying of laughter after reading this blog post. Man in other room says “honey, what’s so funny”, she gives him the 140 character twitter summary and he says that’s not funny. She asks why and he doesn’t want to admit to being the random fool mentioned. ;)

    He could have just said, “I like your truck and ATV.” He probably couldn’t bring himself to tell a woman that he liked her toys. :)
