We had a celebrity in our midst last night at our Knit Night - she didn't even tell us - I figured it out this morning when I read her blog. Meet Wannietta (I snagged her photo from her blog - had I known who she was I would have got out my camera and snapped away!) She is the two time and current winner of Canada's Search for the Fastest Knitter with a personal best of 245 stitches in 3 minutes. Her technique is amazing to see. Thanks so much for visiting Wannietta - it was our pleasure!
So on to some blog worthy things that happened this morning. Lisa and I stopped at McDonald's on the way into work (I know not a good breakfast choice)and I had a coupon for 2 can dine for $5.98 - I forgot I had it so the first total I got for the cashier was $8.53 after giving her the coupon she spent several minutes making a refund, inputting the coupon order and then pleasantly announced our new total was $9.00. Now how does that happen? Apparently sausage mcmuffins are not included in the two can dine coupon so she had to charge us for sausage and egg mcmuffins - I wanted to just pay and get out of there - by now there was a line up several cars deep behind us and I could see some agitated people glaring at us. Lisa didn't want any part of paying more for something that we should have gotten cheaper so then a manager had to come and re-do the whole thing - turns out our new cost was $7.19 so we did save but boy oh! boy - what a struggle!
On the way to the shop we were stopped at a stoplight and the van in front of us said on the rear window. "I wish my wife were as dirty as this car. " It was written in the dirt on the window and actually had been written twice because we could see where it had been erased and then someone re-wrote it. I wanted to follow the guy and ask him what he could be thinking with something like that on the window. Lisa and I figured he's a bitter divorced man who's wife got the best of him in a settlement - we say well deserved for the wife in question. Some people!!!!
My husband always says I shouldn't comment on things like the above because you never know who could be reading this blog - in this particular case I say I hope the guy does read it and maybe gets the hint. Jerk!
