Huh.

To All The People Eavesdropping In The Lift This Morning, And Especially Those Who Were Laughing:

I was talking to my mother on the phone. If you had any experience in talking to my mother, you'd have the very same whiny half-crazed I'm-about-ta-go-berserk tone of voice that you were sniggering at. The woman turns up at my home at 11pm last evening to pass me some Really Important Documents, with Really Important Instructions. God forbid that between 11pm yesterday and 8.30 am today, I should have forgotten what she said, especially when it concerns me personally. And when she says to put the Really Important Documents in my pocket and she watches to see that I do, she does not have to pat my pocket right after that to make sure they are really in there. Trust me. I've had at least 30 years of experience in putting things in my own pocket. They are really really in there.

That said, after personally reminding me about the Really Important Instructions at 8.30 am and 9.12 am, her getting 2 other family members to call me at 9.30 am, 9.45 am and 9.50 am to repeat the Really Important Instructions could possibly be unnecessary. Especially when I am already running around like a crazy chicken trying to carry out the Really Important Instructions.

Also. Note to mother. When next we are standing and talking in the rain with a crying toddler clinging to my leg and you ask me to provide you with some figures for completion accounts, you can count on it that whatever comes out of my mouth at that point in time will be wrong. But you can also count on me spending some real quality time with a calculator before I write out my own cheque for the completion money. You do not have to call me and remind me to use a calculator to calculate sums. And when you do call me with this reminder, you do not have to ask me whether I know how to calculate the sums properly. There is a button for the plus sign that I can use. I get it.

In other news, The Son enjoyed his second day in school today. The teachers haven't called me yet to notify me that my son is gifted and could qualify for Mensa, but I'm sure it's a matter of minutes before my handphone and office direct line all ring at the same time.

At the same time the school did not call to ask you to keep the son at home and that he is in fact some form of terror on legs. :-)

when those phones ring could it possibly be your mother ... again?

Reading about your mother makes me feel better whenever my own mother goes into her "remember-to-lock-the-door-when-you-get-home" mode.

the husband left the 1 yr old in the car yesterday after parking the car in the pouring rain. it's no wonder we turn out like our moms.....maybe repeated annoyances do work. "remember to take the baby out. dun forget. the baby's in the car-seat. dun forget. he's there. he's still there. there, he's there. take him out. with you. when you get out. take him out." must work.
