And You Really Meant?


Don’t you hate when you say something really stupid, then you try to backstep, do a tango dance trying to make it sound like you knew what you were talking about the whole time, and you really didn’t……..

I really, really hate that.

Ran into an acquaintance I had not seen for awhile, but knew her mother moved into a nursing facility awhile ago.

Zelzee: “Hi Margo, how does your mother like it where she’s at?”

Dead silence……………..

Zelzee: “I mean is she happy there?”

Margo: “Zelzee, my mother passed away.”

And……….best part……………….I was at the funeral home.

Zelzee: “Oh, geez, wow, that’s right………I am so sorry, I knew that. I must have been thinking of someone else.”…………………
Idiot, idiot, idiot………..But, do you think she likes it where she’s at?

Margo is wondering how in the world they allow me to work with the public…..

I don’t know myself…………….

    Yeah – that’s a tough one! I know I shouldn’t really be laughing, but…you were at the funeral parlor?!? LOL.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh, Zel, that’s tough! Wow. But I laughed really hard (out loud) when I read it, so it was good for something! :) That is SO something I would do…

    Sorry for the late comment… catching up on vacation :)

    You really did put your foot in that one. Unfortunately, I’ve done that too. I always try and be generous when I’m on the receiving end of this stuff… I’ve been the perpetrator more than I care to count/

    I was catching up with a friend about a year ago, after not having talked to him for 10 years or so. I asked –because I wanted him to be impressed that I remembered the crazy little town in Nevada where his parents live– how his parents were. He replied that his dad had died about 5 years ago and his mom had died 2 years after that.

    I HATE that!!
