My friend just had a baby.
We both belong to the same mommy group that adopts a family or two in need each year.
I took my friend dinner the other night and a few days before bringing it to her I told her that I'd take her gift for the family and drop it off when I dropped mine off. That way she didn't have to drag 3 kids out of the house, then drag 3 kids out of the car and into the church where the toy collection was happening.
We both managed to forget all about her gift when I dropped the dinner off.
She was out my way shopping today so she said she'd bring it by and if I wasn't home she would leave it on my front porch.
I forgot to tell Jeff about this.
Jeff came home and finds the gift on our front porch.
I wasn't home.
Jeff was confused.
I get a phone call from him and it is all about this gift.
Here is our coversation:
Jill, the weirdest thing happened.
What happened Jeff??
Well, I came home from the grocery store and there was a gift on our front porch, did you order something?
No Jeff, I didn't order anything, why do you always assume I buy stuff all the time online and hide it from you?? Besides, UPS doesn't deliver on Saturdays.
Jill, you love online shopping, stop trying to deny it. Anyways, there was a gift on our front porch, do you know what it is all about?
Yes, my friend dropped it off, it is her donation to a family in need, I told her I'd take it to the place of collection this week for her since she just had a baby and probably doesn't want to bring all 3 kids out to drop this gift off, so she was out shopping today and said she'd bring it by and if we were not home she said she'd leave it on her porch.
Oooops, I opened it.
YOU OPENED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, yeah, I wanted to see what it was. I guess you will need to re-wrap it now.
Ummmm, yeah, I guess so. Jeff, that gift is meant for a particular child, did it have a name on it??
Yeah, it said Neil, which really confused me because nobody named Neil lives here so I actually thought it might be for a neighbor so I got on the county real estate property search website and did a search to see if we had any neighbors named Neil.
Are you kidding me? (at this point I'm pretty much laughing so hard I'm crying)
No, I thought we had some other kids present.
But Jeff you opened it, so even if it did get delivered to the wrong house, it was opened. You opened some other kids present!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know, I probably shouldn't have done that.
No, probably not.
Can you imagine if my husband's internet search came up with someone named Neil that lived in our neighborhood??
Seriously, I'm still laughing about this and this happened like 8 hours ago.
Did I also mentioned that my husband really liked the toy? It was a Disney Cars Lego set.
He liked it so much he went and found one at Wal-Mart for Davis.
While he was at Wal-Mart I called him.
Here is how that conversation went:
Hi Jeff, I just stopped by my mom's house, what are you doing?
Well, that gift your friend left was pretty sweet and I think Davis would like it so I am at Wal-Mart looking for one.
What is it?
A Disney Cars Lego Set.
Jeff, I got that already for Davis, did you not see it when I wrapped presents 3 nights ago. I am pretty sure I showed it to you and you said it was awesome.
No, I don't remember seeing that. I don't really pay attention to a lot of things you tell me.
Jeff, you picked it up and looked at it and said, that is awesome.
Jill, I don't remember this. I don't think you showed me.
Yes, I did show you, I clearly remember it.
Ugh, well, I have to go, I have a crappy cart and this place is packed.
So, the moral of this story is, my husband has no regard for things that clearly are not for him and he doesn't listen to anything I say, EVER!!!!!
