Wanna Buy some Super Glue?

Good ‘ol Murphy’s Law.  As we were finishing up the bathroom remodel yesterday, and after numerous trips to the local home improvement store, we made yet one (*pause*) more (*pause*) trip (*pause and deep breath*).  While there, we picked up an eco-friendly toilet with #1 and #2  flush options (which I am REALLY excited about!)  I mean… in the next 5 1/2 months alone, think of the water I’ll save!  This really has nothing to do with the super glue, so on with the story.

When we arrived at the checkout, the very nice, friendly woman behind the counter rang up everything, then asked, “Do you want to help me win a dinner with my boss?  I have three more of these super glue items to sell to win it.”  In a split second, a few things happened.  1) I got a little weirded out about her enthusiasm about a dinner with the boss, 2) I was a little offended that I was put into a position of not pleasing someone.  Wasn’t she supposed to be pleasing me by doing a good job of checking us out and thanking us for our purchase?  And, 3) I then said, “Ya know, I would, but we already have two of those unopened at home.”  That was such a lie!  We didn’t have a stitch of glue in the house.  Why couldn’t I just say, “No thank you, I’m not interested at this time”?  That’s a conversation for another day.

Well, ironically, this whole situation came back to bite me in the ass when we got home.  Let me preface this by pointing out that my husband wasn’t involved in the checkout process.  He was enjoying a hot dog from the stand in front of the store (which I’ll give him… he totally deserved), so he missed the whole glue conversation.

Anyway… shortly after arriving home, Pete peeks his head out of the bathroom and asks, “Hon, do we have any super glue?”  WHAT??!?!?!

    That’s just how it always seems to work. That’s what I call the Universe poking you in the eye. It happens to me all the time.
