Friday Flip-Offs 8/6: Walking into the men’s room

5 Aug

It’s Friday Flip-Off time. How has your fabulous week been? Did you watch The Bachelorette finale? I know I didn’t. (pssst… Can you believe Ali chose Roberto?)

I’m very tired today so please excuse my terrible grammar and cheesy jokes.

I know you’re already typing, “You ALWAYS  have bad grammar and cheesy jokes!” into the comment field. Flip Off! 😉

My Hamster- Flip Off! I’ve been extra nice to you since your best friend died (Yes, one of my two Robos died last week) but you’re starting to frustrate me.

I know Robos are hard to tame but you are unlike any other hamster I have ever owned. You run away even if I’m just opening the cage. I’m not going to kill you with my bare hands; I don’t roll that way.

Umbrellas- Flip Off! What is it about umbrellas that puts me in the dancing mood? I felt like I was in a musical but everyone else thought I was a weirdo twirling an umbrella and singing.

People who join blog-hops but don’t participate- I want to read about your Flip Offs, not the mole that turned out to be chocolate.

You people made this list TWICE. There is so many of you that I decided to name you so you are now called “Random Linkers”.

One day, I’m going to leave you Random Linkers a comment about how I really feel.

(Deep down, Maze knows that she will NEVER get the courage to do that. )

My mom- Flip Off! You called me Lisa. Who the heck is Lisa?

Is that your other daughter? I want answers!

My shoes- Flip Off! You fit perfectly at the store and now you’re too tight. I only tried on one at the store and when I gave the box to the clerk she told me that the two shoes were different sizes. I got another shoe that was the same size as the one I tried on. My feet either grew a size or I’m an idiot who doesn’t know her left from her right.

One of my favorite stores- Flip Off! I HATE the changes you made to the bathroom. Long story short, I couldn’t tell the men’s room from the women’s. You can’t imagine how relieved I was when ‘the urinals’ turned out to be weird sinks.

On my last ‘Flip Off’ post, I flipped off my ballet flats because I was slipping in them and there was nothing on the floor that could have caused me to slip. A few days ago, I slipped in my ballet flats and almost landed in a puddle of dog urine on the floor.

Touché, ballet flats.

    OMG..what store changed their bathrooms that way?? CRAZY!!! that would’ve freaked me out.

    I have had the ‘shoes too tight once home’ thing happen to me a bajillion times. It’s soooo frustrating.

    Too bad those ballet flats weren’t too tight so you could take them back for a pair with better traction 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

      They changed the whole store around. I can’t find the produce section or the toilet.

      The worst part about the shoes is that I’m past the return limit. 😦 I hope that I can just stretch them out or something.

    Wait… your mom called you by the wrong name? I don’t even know you, and I’m curious who the heck Lisa is!

    • Sara @ Tedious Life August 5, 2010 at 11:34 pm #

      She was obviously communicating with my long lost twin, Lisa, and mixed up our names.

      …Or her friend Lisa called her on the phone today and she mixed up our names.

      I’m going with option number 1.

    dog urine! YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and don’t feel too bad about your mom calling you the wrong name. my dad does it all the time! plus i don’t think he can spell my name let alone say it!

    • Sara @ Tedious Life August 5, 2010 at 11:26 pm #

      I don’t blame your dad.

      How do you pronouce that…. A-lix? All-x? That’s too difficult for this simpleminded girl.

    Wrong bathroom…that sucks!!

    And also – people that join blog hops but don’t participate. I couldn’t even imagine doing that! I’m flipping ’em off too!

    oh my gosh…you’re so funny. As for the Bachelorette…I LOVE that show! It’s the only thing that is keeping me going while I’m on the treadmill…thank you very much! I can’t even tell you how many times the shoes fit in the store but a day later it doesn’t. what’s that all about? Great flip-offs!

    Ha ha – loving the mum flip off! I get called Erin, Josh, Dad… if my mum is mad or trying to get your attention, she will inevitably mix your name up with one of the other people in the room…

    • Sara @ Tedious Life August 6, 2010 at 12:59 am #

      Loving the way you say ‘mum’. I don’t even say ‘mom’, I say ma or mama.

    new follower from Friday Flip Offs! I didnt do the bachlor/ette this season…Im still Flipping jason off from a few seasons ago and won’t watch it again. Jason is the douche that dumped darling Melissa, right?

    The slippery shoes would be a pain but the dog urine is what I’d be flipping off…in fact I think it was last week for me…when will these little dogs learn to go outside? Oh wait, I’m turning this comment all about me …

    Happy Friday!

    • Sara @ Tedious Life August 6, 2010 at 12:29 pm #

      This is the first year I watched The Bachelorette but I didn’t really get into it. I’m hoping the next season will be better.

      The dog urine came from my old dog who hasn’t peed in the house for years. He’s been sick so I couldn’t flip him off this week. 😦 He was doing better last night so maybe I can flip off him and his urine next week.

    Another winning post 🙂
    One time at college I went in to the boys bathroom and didn’t know it. I actually peed in it. I was so stupid I didn’t even notice the urinals. I was washing my hands and a guy comes in, looks at me, walks out and looks at the sign. I said, “Am I in the men’s bathroom?” and he said, “Yep” and my face turned red and I was all apologetic and pathetic. haha

    • Sara @ Tedious Life August 6, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

      I can’t imagine how you must felt. Thankfully, I’ve never walked into the men’s room. *knock on wood*

  9. Kendra August 6, 2010 at 11:50 am #

    That is SO funny that your mom called you the wrong name!!! My mom calls me Emmie all the time…. Emmie is her hairless dog. WHAT?!

  10. Kerry August 6, 2010 at 12:03 pm #

    OMG, your mom! that is hilarious yet a little sad.

    and the bathroom thing…so annoying! especially if you are anything like me and wait to the last possible minute to go.

    • Sara @ Tedious Life August 6, 2010 at 12:08 pm #

      I always wait until the last minute when I have to use a public restroom.

  11. Elle August 6, 2010 at 12:53 pm #

    You are funny. I esp. like what you wrote about your mom. LOL. Funny stuff man. You get way more comments on your flips than I do!

    • Sara @ Tedious Life August 6, 2010 at 1:35 pm #

      I get more comments because I post as soon as Gigi publishes her post on Thursday night.

      These aren’t actually Friday Flips at all, I’m such a liar.

  12. Rachel August 6, 2010 at 1:14 pm #

    My dad use to call me by my brothers name… very frustrating ….. my Rabbit runs away from me when I go to get him out …doesn’t run from the Hubby mind you…. so I do feel your pain… thanks for sharing your flip offs I love them

  13. WTH am I Doing August 6, 2010 at 2:44 pm #

    Visiting from Kludgy Mom.

    I have had the shoe thing happen to me so many times. I’ve even followed the “shoe shop at the end of the day so your feet are at their pudgiest” advice…& still had tight shoes. WTH.

    Almost falling in urine of any species is quite nasty. Being sabotaged by ballet flats? So not cool.

    Hi, just wanted to say hello, and thank you for your kind comment at Lady Bloggers.

    I love your Friday Flip Offs, I love everyone’s Friday Flip Offs. It’s like eavesdropping on a juicy convo by the community pool, you know?

    Yours are awesome!!

    • Sara @ Tedious Life August 6, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

      You’re welcome, I meant every word.

      I love Flip Offs too, it helps me rid that bottled up anger and have fun doing it.

  15. Lori August 6, 2010 at 10:46 pm #

    Oh man I saved the best for last. This was an awesome post. Your poor hamster… he thinks you did something to the other one and is now living in fear of the giant hand coming from the sky to take him away LOL

    I am thinking you may have watched Mary Poppins one too many times as a child 🙂 Just a thought.

    Your mom post had me cracking up the most I think… or maybe it was the note to self in () about the craptastic bloggers that link up with no posts to show for it all.

    Have a great weekend and see you next week!

    I just hopped over from the “Tea Party” At Lady Bloggers. Loved your Flip Off Post. I have never wondered into the wrong bathroom, one time a man had accidently walked into the womans when I have been in there, Made me doubt I chose the right one to begin with. I wonder who is more embarrassed of walking into the wrong one. Us or them!?
