My mom has been on hold with our cable company, trying to figure out why they have started charging her over 30% more. Apparently we’ve been paying for HD and premium channels, which we never asked for or used. She has been put on hold again when this happens…

Mom: (on hold) Why are they charging me for stuff I don’t want!

Woman on Other Line: *picks up* Hello?

Mom: Hello.

Woman: I’m trying to find out why my Hallmark Channel isn’t working?

Mom: Um, I’m actually a customer too…

Woman: What? How did that happen?

Mom: I don’t know, I’m trying to get my bill reduced and they put me on hold again.

Woman: *laughs*

So, my mom ended up having some laughs with another random customer about how weird and screwed up cable companies are. And we’re still trying to get our bill reduced…

The customer is a well mannered gentleman with a job as director of a government agency.

Me: I’m afraid I’ll need you to call into one of our stores with ID, like a passport.

Customer: Can I fax it to you?

Me: The only problem with that is I cannot see you down the telephone line.

(I was a little bummed that I didn’t get a teaching job I had interviewed for and my dad was trying to cheer me up. Keep in mind this is over IM.)

Dad: It’s okay. You’ll find another school. Any school should be proud to have you as their teacher.

Me: Aw, thanks, Dad.

Dad: I know you’ve got the kills.

Me: …Kills?

Dad: SKILLS*!!!! I MEANT SKILLS!

Me: So I found this book at the store, and it reminded me of [My Dog]. It’s called How To Live With A Neurotic Dog.

Friend: Huh? So you’re saying [My Dog] likes to strip naked and dance?

Me: … I said NEUROTIC, not EROTIC!

Note: my mom is known to be a little scatterbrained on occasion.

I run into my mom at the grocery store, and we shop together for a while. She then begins to wander, claiming that she’s just following me, even though I’m walking behind her. Later, when she jabbed, she parks in a no-parking area, presumably to look for something in her car.

Me, driving by: “That’s not a parking spot!”

A few minutes later, I see a car backing up into traffic a few lanes over. I realize it’s my mom.

Me: “That’s illegal!”
