Frivolous Friday: Why I’m ticked off today

Today blogger disappeared and my super cool blog for today was wiped out. Maybe because it’s Friday the 13th or maybe because it was my best blog yet. I don’t know if you can win a Pulitzer for a blog, but if you could…well…

So instead I’ll tell you about a time I almost disappeared…like blogger today.

My mom dropped me off at the grocery store entrance to go in and pay a bill. As if it’s my responsibility to pay bills.

I got out of the car, went inside and stood in a line longer than the drive-thru at McDonalds. That’s long, people. A boy I  dated and dumped–cheater–worked there and the entire time he had his buddy page him just so I was sure to hear his name over and over. Before I left he had his lame friend ask me if I’d give him a second chance. Whatever! To say the least, I was steaming at my mom. By the time I paid the bill at customer service, I was so flustered and hacked off I wasn’t sure if I was coming or going. I stormed out the doors, but they didn’t open fast enough and I smacked into them. I pretended it was funny. I was humiliated.

Then I swung open the back door and plopped into the backseat. “If you want a bill paid, go do it yourself next time.”

The man in the driver’s seat turned back and smiled. “I think you have the wrong car, sweetie.”

I looked around. I saw my mom in the car ahead of me with her arm out the window flagging me down.

Like blogger, I temporarily disappeared. Like my pride, the draft I wrote for today is gone forever.

Have a great weekend!

  1. LOL, how very like you! Oh Jessica, you take the cake. You've always been you haven't ya? I'm glad you didn't disappear but hacked off with you about the blog post. Next draft will be even better!!

  2. I know how you feel, Jessica. I didn't have a post prepared for today, but blogger did delete the post I did on Wednesday. It had taken me forever to write because I uploaded a lot of pictures….and now I have to do it all over again! Yes, I'm ticked!

  3. Wow, and I thought it was just me! My blog post didn't show up on time, either, and I coulda sworn I had it saved. Friday the 13th, oooo. Glad it's working now, though. It's got everyone pretty miffed 🙂

    Your story is hilarious! That ex-boyfriend was real mature, wasn't he?

  4. You've got the best stories! That poor man.

    Mine from Wednesday disappeared too!

    Thanks for the funny story.

  6. LOL! That is a hilarious story. Isn't it funny how sometimes real life can truly be more bizarre or embarassing than fiction? I'm glad Blogger's working again too!

  7. Great story! My kids and I watched my hubby do the same thing. He got into the car next to us…then realized it wasn't us in the car…lol. We still bring that one up every now and then.

    Blogger is working but it ate some of my comments. =(

  8. laughing out loud…what more can I say?

  9. Thanks for stopping by on crazy Friday to say hi! Sometimes I wonder if all my ridiculous experiences were designed so I could have material for books! Loree: That's hysterical! I love catching my hub do embarrassing things. Gives me lots of ammo! Sorry to ya'll who lost posts and comments. I did too. Today's a new day. 🙂

  10. The blog I wrote that day disappeared as well, but then it popped back onto the site the next day. The site was down for a long time. Couldn't check stats, leave stats or anything.

    I tried to jump into the wrong vehicle just last week. I was looking at my checkbook and opened the door to hop in. I thought the handle felt funny (it was different), but did not pay much attention. I went to jump in the flowers on the rear-view mirror caught my attention. I stopped, looked around and realized it was not my van. My daughter was watching from the next vehicle and laughed all the way home.
