Last week, Hubby and I decided to try a new Thai restaurant in Providence. We'd read some great reviews about the place and heard that it was very authentic.
When we got there, the place was PACKED. There were people waiting out the front door and there was standing room only inside the tiny restaurant. I gave the hostess our name, was told that the wait would be about twenty minutes, and decided to go for a nice walk in this ultra trendy neighborhood to pass the time.
When we returned from our walk, I went back into the restaurant to check on our place in line and was told that I could wait outside for the hostess to come and get us. Hubby and I made our way out to the parking lot and stood right in front of the door.
Now, by this time, the line outside was gone except for us and another couple.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, this amazon chick (she was like seven feet tall) came walking up to us. She was pushing a double baby carriage with a sleeping baby in the front (he was about three months old) and a little girl in the back (she was about three). She stopped right in front of the restaurant's door, helped the little girl out of the carriage, pushed the sleeping baby RIGHT OVER NEAR ME and said, "I'm leaving this baby here. Watch him for me." And she walked WAY into the back of the restaurant, where she remained for FIFTEEN FREAKIN MINUTES waiting for her take-out.
I am not even friggin kidding, people!
Hubby and I looked at each other, then we looked around to see if we were on Candid Camera or something! I mean, SERIOUSLY! This CRAZY B*TCH just dumped her sleeping baby on two TOTAL STRANGERS??! WTF was she thinking?
Dudes, for one brief moment of my life, I was totally speechless (and you know that doesn't happen often). Finally, I looked at my husband and said, "That stupid b*tch! Obviously she doesn't watch Dateline! What the hell is she thinking?! What if we were baby stealers or something?! We could have grabbed the kid, hopped on the highway, and been halfway to another state by now! Oh.My.God! I am so livid right now!"
Hubby, who was as shocked as I was, responded, "Well, maybe she thinks we look too NORMAL to steal her baby?" To which I responded, "NORMAL? NORMAL? Ted Bundy looked NORMAL! Oh my God! I can not even believe her! I'm going to give her a piece of my mind!"
Hubby was nervous. He didn't want me to cause a scene. So, as much as I wanted to blast her, I pretty much held it in.
Just then, MOTHER OF THE YEAR walked back out of the restaurant and took her baby back. She looked at me nonchalantly and said, "Thanks."
That's when I looked at my husband and said LOUDLY so she could hear me, "I wouldn't steal her baby! But If THAT BABY was a chocolate layer cake, she'd be screwed!"
And with that, I walked into the restaurant...while SHE gave me a dirty look (Yeah, JUDGE ME, assface!).
Is it me?
Or, are the stupid really multiplying in droves?
