Welcome to the BOMB.

The Blog Of the "Mother" of Bandit.
Bandit is my Hairless Chinese Crested--he's the "normal" one. I, on the other hand, am unrepentantly "pet-crazy." You know the type--the spinster who lives in the haunted house three blocks over with 72 cats...okay, so I don't have 72 cats, and my house isn't haunted--but my dogs wardrobe is better than mine! Need I say more? :~)
I've never been consistant at journaling, so the timing of my blogs will be sporadic at best. I just hope they are as entertaining to you as they are to me; however, be forewarned: Most of my blogs will be about The BaldOne. In spite of his Don King "do," I think he's just as cute as any of the Brothers B!
Now, if I can just remember not to get him wet--or feed him after midnight...

About Me

My photo
My bags are packed and I'm always ready to seek out an adventure with Bandit and Moggy in tow. Bandit is my thirteen year old Chinese Crested, who I frequently call The Bald One or The BaldOne Boy (like he was one of the Baldwin Brothers). Moggy’s full name is Pip-Moggy. He’s my two year old gansta-resuce kitty. I couldn’t decide between Pip (which are the spots on die and domino tiles) and Moggy (or Moggie when I mistakenly thought he was a she), so I combined the two. Moggy refers to the British term for "cat of unknown parentage .” So in essence, I have an almost bald dog, and I’ve named my cat “Spot.”

Sonic by the Full Moon

I just noticed: the moon is full....

Mystery voice from the speaker box: "How may I help you?"
Me: "I'd like a cheeseburger, with mustard, mayo, pickles, and cheese only please." (I once made the mistake of ordering a cheeseburger without reminding them of the cheese, and, well...that's another story...)

Voice: "A cheeseburger, with mustard, mayo, pickles, and cheese only?"
Me: "Yes, please."
Voice: "It will be right out."
Me: "Thank you."

I back my car out so I can reenter the parking space and give the CarHop room to give me my order without me having to twist my back and receive my order over my left shoulder. Then I start looking for enough money for my order and a tip. Several minutes later, CarHop #1 enters and attempts to hand me a straw, two spoons, and a wad of napkins. On her tray sit two shakes and a tinfoil sandwich bag.

Me: "I've ordered a cheeseburger, with mustard, mayo, pickles, and cheese only."
CarHop #1: "I must have the wrong car!"
Me: (smiling sweetly, but thinking) 'D'ya think?!'
CarHop #1: "I'll have your order right out!"
Me: "Thank you."

Several minutes later, CarHop #1 returns and hands me a tinfoil sandwich bag saying, "Do you need anything else?"
Me: ""No thank you."

As I open the bag, after CH#1 has left, I notice lettuce. Had I requested veggies? I don't think so. Then I noticed the cheeseburger looked suspiciously like a chicken strip sandwich. I reach for the red call button, but alas, it is out of reach because I had repositioned the car. So, I re-reposition the car and called The Voice.

Me: "I've been given the wrong order."
The Voice: "The CarHop will be right out."
Me: "Okay, thank you."
I re-re-re-position the car to allow room yada-yada-yada...Several minutes later CH#1 returns and takes the chicken strip sandwich away saying, "They put the wrong thing on my tray. I'll be right back with your cheeseburger. "
Me: "Not a problem, thank you," and I'm actually smiling a real smile--and not gritting my teeth--how's that for a shocker?! (It really is a full moon!)

A few more minutes and CarHop#2 appears, apologizes for the mix-up, and begins telling me about the coupons they are giving me for the delay. I did not let her even finish her spiel or give anything to me because she mentioned that one of the items in the bag was my cheese burger "with everything on it."

Me: laughing, "I'm sorry, that's still not the right order. I ordered a "cheeseburger, with mustard, mayo, pickles, and cheese only."
CarHop #2: "I'll be right back."

Shortly, CH#2 returns with the correct order (yea!), and she is also giving me the chicken sandwich, coupons for two frees drinks (by this time I could have used an alcoholic drink) , and another coupon for a free combo of my choice.

LQ Chalmette area could take lessons from Sonic, but that's another blog...

And wonder of wonders, I'm still laughing about it. I would have blogged it from the parking space, except when I accessed my email, my phone kept telling me my "phone does not support that app" and asked if I would like to "go to airplane mode?" I keep telling it "no." But evidently it thinks it can wear me down by repeating the information and question (repeatedly) every minute or so. What it doesn't realize: I'm just as stubborn and hard-headed as it is! My answers remain the same and I continue to send email even though it tells me that app is not supported.
