Distractions

The following was left on Mary's voicemail yesterday:

"Hi, it's about 2:05 and I have a 2:00 appointment with Dr. Grumpy, and I'm trying to get there. I'm on the freeway and my son is driving me, so we just passed 24th street and WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING! DIDN'T YOU SEE THAT TRUCK? WHY DON'T YOU PAY ATTENTION NEXT TIME! ARE YOU BLIND? I KNEW I SHOULDN'T HAVE LET YOUR FATHER TEACH YOU TO DRIVE!"

She didn't show up for her appointment, either.

What part of "Driving me crazy" is this?

Ok, Mom that is it---get out and walk.

My father is the sort of person who gives you directions retroactively. He doesn't tell you to turn left, he tells you "you should have taken a left about half a mile ago." When I was seventeen, I told him that either he was getting in the back seat, or he was driving the rest of the way home. Most surprisingly to me, he got in the back!

The police should also have charged him with incredibly bad taste in (so-called) singers!!!

My first thought - mania. Distracted and ALL OVER THE PLACE. No wonder she didn't show up. LOL

"Ooh.. look at that shiny thing."

Was there anything in the local newspaper about "Son dumps mother on shoulder of freeway"?
