Offended

I came to pickup a colleague at a hotel. Parked in front while they checked out. Valer attendant comes to me and I roll my windows down to say I’m picking up a guest. He asks if I’m uber. I replied, “no I’m not uber”. I was totally offended. Just because I’m picking someone up in a Prius doesn’t make me an uber. 

Look before you ask, do I have a fucking sticker on my windshield? No but he’s a typical guy… Asking before looking. 

#HowtobeaMAN pt. 2

Twice in one week… When you insist on having your wife take your car, please have the tank filled so she doesn’t have to go through the trouble of stopping by a gas station. After the tire incident this made me so furious again, in the am on my way to the office. In the am, I said I was going to take Maximus. He should’ve just let me take the Prius since I just filled up the tank the day before! He was super insistent on me taking Betty White. As soon as I got in the car, I freaking had fire coming out of my ears. Seriously. I hate things like this… and he knows it. I hope I got mad enough at him for him to remember never to do it again.😛

Why I get annoyed… #howtobeaMAN pt.1

So, we landed at LAX and when we got in our car, the tire light was on. That evening, we got home around 12:30am and had to go to the office the next day. That week, I needed to take Maximus because I was driving to Calabasas. When I got in my car, I was immediately annoyed. My husband, the “man” of the house should have taken car of this knowing that I was taking the car that week. He had a day or two to check on it. I mean… isn’t this why I got married? So I don’t have to do these things myself? Especially if he’s the last one that drove it?

New Car Mount @iOttie

I had a great one I got for free through this Amazon deal, but the stickiness on the suction was not as effective so I decided to purchase one so I can continue my facetime activity on my way home from the office.

Betty White @IrvineBMW

So we named Bear’s car. He asked me to name her and I said Betty as a joke, but then I remembered Betty White! What a great name for a white man’s car! HA!

He didn’t think it was so funny, but now it’s stuck. Please welcome, Betty White!

Can’t Mount!

Got this a while ago and now it’s not working well. I cleaned it a few times, but one time it was stuck on the windshield so well I used a card to peel it off. Well, I peeled the suction off the plastic piece so now it doesn’t stay. The suction stays on the window but the suction won’t stay on the holder thingy. Anyway, I’m going to try to superglue it and if it doesn’t work, I’ll have to buy another.

What’s most annoying is that I haven’t been able to properly facetime my gfs on my way home!

Long Ride #VIPrius

The best part about being a passenger is being able to stretch my short little legs. Every Friday, I drive from Beverly Hills to Rancho Mission Viejo. That’s about 80 miles. Call me crazy, but that’s what I/We do.

I had a thought the other day (after Mother’s Day)… that if I could get into the office a little later two days out of the week, I would pick Tyler up in the am and drop him off at school and head into the office. I would stay later to finish up work and also I would be able to avoid traffic. If I got up at 4am, I’d be able to get to Equinox at 4am in Newport, workout and get ready and be at Tyler’s home by 7:00am-7:30am. I’d drop him off at school by 8:00am and get to the office by 10:00am-10:30am ish? The insane part would be that I would have already been up for six hours and had been on the road for 3.5hours of it.😛

I’ll have to talk to my Director about this… but I think this would be a great leap in my relationship with Tyler…
