Dear So and So

Saturday, February 27, 2010 Posted by Rita A


Here are my Dear So and So letters of this past week that I wish I could have sent.

Dear impatient driver in a big SUV,
I did what I was supposed to when the fire trucks were coming down the street with lights and sirens blaring. I pulled over. Everyone in front of me pulled over. When the trucks passed you came up so fast and cut every one of us off from getting back in traffic. Were you trying to cause an accident? Did it get you where you were going any faster to cut all of us off?

Dear fast food restaurant,
You are advertising the most delicious looking new flavor of shakes. There are signs all over your restaurant with pictures of the chocolate cake shakes. You really made me want one. When I ordered at the register I was told the shake machine was broken. What? Could you have posted a no shakes available sign on the register or removed the shakes signs all around tempting me? Humph! Well you did save me all those calories.

Dear Hubby,
I borrowed your car. While my mom and I were out, it started to rain. We grabbed the umbrella we found in your car. While we were walking, we opened the umbrella only to find out it was completely broken. There we were standing in the rain, getting soaked holding the most embarassing umbrella in our hands. We laughed so hard it didn't matter after that. But hubby why would you have a broken umbrella in your car?

Update - in his defense, I told him our story and which umbrella I grabbed. He responded "It's Broken". Yes I married a Sherlock! He said he was keeping it to remind him to get a new one. Humph!

I hope you all had a good week but if you had a Dear So and So moment, I would love to hear about it.

    LOL, Rita, I totally get the one about the SUV driver - not sure they belong here in SoCal anyway, there's no ROOM!! But if you want to study bad drivers, you can't do it here. We're WAY better than those back East. We're too scared to pull the stuff they do, and get away with, because they have room to escape! Love your Dear So and So letters; great outlet for you and for us readers!

    Mine is to the women on Craig's list who wanted what I had So I jumped up from my sons birthday party (yes I did) Ran home grabbed the stuff only to get to our destination and you say never mind. Well I may have been nice to your face and act like I did not mind but really I entertained thoughts of putting your number on craigs list saying you had a free Wii.

    It's been raining literally every other day here. One day its raining, the next sunny, raining, sunny. It's driving me crazy. Either way, I'm thinking I should probably invest in an umbrella one of these days.... I usually don't because I hate when they turn inside out!

    And I also hate when people drive behind something with sirens and lights only to cut everyone off. Why must people be so impatient these days?!

  7. Danielle said...

    Haha. What a great reminder. Sorry you all got soaked; glad it made for a good laugh though!

  8. Momma Fargo said...

    Love the umbrella story! LOL. Very funny.

  9. Texjoyce said...

    Love the dear so and so. I have one for an suv/truck driver too!

    Dear so and so,

    Did you really think it was ok to ignore the red light while talking on your cell phone. Did you think it was ok to slide through the wet intersection and nearly harm two other drivers? Really??

    I'm afraid I was the impatient driver in the SUV. Sorry 'bout that - I hope yelling at me in the Kroger parking lot made you feel better. What can I say...I really had to pee;p

    As for the umbrella story - that's just too funny. Husbands!

    Great letters to So and so! Hm...wonder if "impatient driver in a big SUV" lives around here, in Savannah, Georgia, too?

    And oh yes, what about those fast food places and broken machines! That has happened with *ahem* I won't name names, a certain "well known" one and their icecream machines....so what if it is a day with record lows...put away all images of your yummy looking soft serve cones!

    And haha I love that your hubby knew ex.act.ly. about which umbrella you spoke of! :o)

    Fun, fun post!
    Blessings & Aloha!
    (I am trying to get some great blog reads in before the work week starts again! Have a wonderful day!)

  20. Emmy said...

    That is pretty funny about the umbrella, at least you laughed about it.. and yeah our umbrella is totally trashed too.. too many little hands playing with it

  21. Jessica said...

    Your husband sounds like mine. Sometimes I think the logic there is just flat, out backwards! ::laughing::

  22. Ashley Stone said...

    Thanks for visiting my blog...

    Returning the favor.
    Oh, at least your husband had an umbrella. Mine would have looked at me like I was speaking chinese and had no idea what an umbrella was for!

  25. Life Without Pink said...

    Thank you for stopping by my blog...so happy to have found yours. What a great section! That is too funny about the umbrella now see that is something I would do to my hubby :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your letters. I don't understand how so many people aren't in more wrecks! I am a SAHM that homeschools so we are almost never in a hurry to get somewhere. Even when I worked and Z went to school, I left with time to spare to get where I needed to go. Glad I don't drive much these days.

  27. The warrior in me said...

    Haha Rita! You made me have a good laugh! Love the dear hubby thing! (Too cute to be roaming around with a broken umbrella just to remember to get a replacement!!)

    Thank God you saved on the calories, but i don't know what i'd have done to get rid of the pica when food in any form, shape/size were cluttering my mind- Ah girl! your will power is strong if you didn't fall to the floor and throw a tantrum right there!!
