Carjacker in a pink T-shirt

Ok so I think now I am over it enough to tell you about the other Thing That Happened when I was at the car dealership on Wednesday. It was just after I had turned in my car for the condenser repair, and I was looking up at that mission statement sign, and the guy said that Peggy was ready to give me a ride back home, and he gestured towards an older woman I saw hovering nearby. "She'll just pull around to the front here and pick you up."
So I contemplated the sign for a moment more and then walked a few steps out of the service garage while I dug out my cell phone so I could take that nice blurry picture of my car in there. I saw a sedan driven by an older woman pull up so I went around to the passenger side and opened the door. I leaned in and she looked up at me, surprised. I wondered if I should be getting into the back seat? And she had a purse on the seat, so I reached in and started to nudge it over so I could swing my butt in. And that's when her expression turned from shock to horror, and I figured out what was happening here. I did this silent mouthing of an explanation and apology, and gesturing with a brand new sign language I just made up. Then I saw another sedan pull around with Peggy in it and I just ran over and got in.
Note to self: PAY MORE ATTENTION!!!

My most embaressing moment was the time I slipped and fell on my butt, in the canal behind the house. No witnesses, thank goodness! I had waded in to untangle a fishing line. That put an end to my fishing!

LOL!! That is hilarious :) A dealership brought me the wrong car once, and I didn't notice til I was sitting in it. Oops!

Mindy- thanks for the big laugh-hope your didn't scare that woman driver too badly. She is probably out buying a lifetime supply of Mace right now.
I have set off alarms in cars in parking lots for thinking that it was my car. I have stolen other people's grocery carts in stores by mistake after leaving mine momentarily. An old man once saw I was taking his cart and came up beside me just saying "Hey! Hey!" and I thought it was some psycho and starting walking faster and faster to get away from him but he kept up yelling "Hey" until I started to run but he grabbed the handlebars and stopped us. Everyone around seemed to understand what was happening.
But my most embarressing moments must be when I have been mistaken for one of my sisters. Yow. Aunt Chris
