We were just moving into the neighboorhood and our first house! Our movers had underestimated the time they needed to load up boxes and unload at our new place. The drive was about 20 miles, but they just didn't estimate correctly. Hence we were all a little behind schedule. I was 13 months pregnant with HHgirl and not much help. Our driveway is at a very steep incline and it made it difficult for the 2500 foot truck to back in. Once they backed into the driveway at an angle they were partially blocking the road. Which made it impossible for traffic to get by.
The car pulls up and a pleasant women starts giving hand signals out her partially rolled down window. Then she starts yelling for the driver to move. HHhubby explains that by the time they move their truck (it took them about 15 minutes to back it in) that she could go around and it would be fast. So the movers and HHhubby kindly ask her to go around the block. One block. The movers had just finally moved it so they could unload with minimal hassle. She screamed (with child in tow) that she was "having a bad day" and would not drive around the block. This exchange lasted no joke about 15 minutes. Let's just say it was ugly after that. She finally got by. Then her employer (our neighbor) called the moving company. Obviously he now knows it was HHhubby that had words with the nanny. To bad he wasn't clued into the fact that his nanny was putting his son at risk by acting like a wack job and getting out of the car and starting a fight with three men instead of driving around the block. Do you think she told her boss this part?
Anyway we met the neighboor. They have a kickin little built in firepit and grill in the entry way in front of their house. I wonder what the back looks like.
Wouldn't you be upset if your nanny put your child at risk, just because she wanted to go toe to toe? Anyway I digressed a little, but we had to relive the moment a little.
Back to the trick or treating. The crew went on to our immeidate neighbors where everyone decided to do a shot of tequila(not me). Time to get the blood warmed up. We didn't go to much father then that. Kids were pooped and full of snot.
Somehow I spilled wine on HHgirl's tinkerbell wings. How is that for class? Maybe the wine wasn't mine. Maybe she wasn't wearing the wings, if that matters. The kids had fun last night. Now they are both sick. So today were chock full of snot.
I think I will order one of these. Damn if you knocked into me, I would have to give you some words. Look closely at the price tags.
