Ok, here are this week's Hit or Miss picks -
I could have stronger feelings about this today because I had someone cut me off in traffic on my way home today. He decided that he was more important and needed to ride the shoulder and get in front of me. Let me just tell you that I drive a big jeep... a jeep with a 3" lift and 35" tires (I can hear some jaws dropping right now), it takes some nerve to cut me off in traffic. One of these days you are going to hear about a jeep running over a jerk in a small car - if you don't follow the traffic laws, why should I? ;)
And her Miss: This is one of the weirdest things I've seen. Why does a man need pantyhose?? I think my favorite part of this pin is the comment by one of our best readers - Mel Lea-Wood. She saw that I had pinned this and said this "hope that's a miss - my husband might as well hand divorce papers if he ever wore these" HA. I would love to hear that conversation --- "why do you want a divorce??" "you wore those freaking mantyhose, I don't need another reason."
And my Hit:
It might be the Yankee in me, but I really hate stupid drivers - and yes, stupid parkers - this drives me NUTS. The lines are there for a reason, people...you can add this to the list of annoyances that make me consider going crazy on people. Right up there with the childless people who park in those parking spots designated for parents with small children. One day I might lose it on those people too, but for now, this seems like a good solution.
And my Miss:
Ok, so I'm not hating on mashed potatoes. They're a beautiful thing, especially when done right. I'm just not sure "done right" includes from a dispenser in a gas station. I can't even remember the last time I was brave enough to do gas station coffee, let alone hot food. And might I add, again, FROM A DISPENSER. I just don't want potatoes enough to push a button and watch them squish out from a big metal box. Gag me. Can you imagine on a road trip asking your spouse, "Hey while you're in there going to the restroom will you grab me a water, some Twizzlers and a cup of mashed potatoes?"
So those are the hits and misses this week - what did you all find?
