Big Mac Attack
So I'd be the first to admit that I don't always drive the speed limit. And its usually not by accident - although sometimes its just not paying attention as well as I should. And this is actually the reason you will not find one of those Christian fish or anything on any of my vehicles. Why advertise I'm sinning on purpose? Way bad example that makes people point their fingers and use words like "hypocrite". And they are right. So that's my free public service announcement for today....if you are a Christian that speeds and has an identifying mark on your car -- take it off. You are doing much more damage than good to God's Kingdom. Just sayin.
This weekend we had a new giggle added to our family giggle bucket. You have one of those, right? Those things that remind you of something that happened with your kids that makes you giggle EVERY TIME.
Like I can't hear the song "Cocaine" on the radio without giggling because Bones thought it was "Cookies" and sang it with great gusto that way when he was pre-school aged.
So the whole family has piled into the trusty (yet oh so uncool) minivan. We are dropping the teen at a friends and then the rest of us are doing something. And the street we live off of is a 45. Not long after we are out on this road, we have a car run up on us and start riding our bumper to the point you can't even see their front end. Stupid close.
And we are going 5 over the speed limit.
So, my husband does what I've seen so many people do in that situation. Yes. He slows down to the exact speed limit. Because if you are going to get so rude, well, its time to follow the law to the letter just because you can. And should anyways. Ahhhmmmnnn.
And this goes on for a few miles until we get to where it becomes two lanes. And the car races up besides us....and the rabid mid-aged lady is livid and flipping us the bird with a consummate professional skill.
At a minivan. Going the speed limit.
And the poor lady gets even madder when our whole car bursts out laughing (see, its a good thing there is no Christian symbols on my car - not kidding) because the teen makes a snarky comment about women flipping off a minivan full of children.
And she speeds away when the light turns -- because yes this is now happening at a stop light and she gets the full laugh-a-thon.
And so we are about settled down when the said lady pulls off the road in front of us....into the McDonalds drive thru.
Yes folks -- her emergency that had her going almost 50 in a 35 (the speed limited dropped at the light)....was apparently a trip to the local McD's.
Which reminded me of the old "Big Mac Attack" commercials. So of course I had to make an equally snarky comment about standing in the way of a lady and her Big Mac Attack.
Apparently its a fever like no other. Speed limit be damned!!!!
But you know whats sadder? The fact that I have nothing better to talk about! LOL! But here's a funny for you!
