Dropping change is just bad. I can never pick up the coins on the first try. Am I the only one with this problem?
Sometimes when buying something at the store and the cashier's hand misses mine and he or she drops a dime on the flat surface, I try to pick it up with one hand using my index finger and thumb… Then I realize that it's a two-hand operation. You see, what you do is, umm..
You slide it off the surface and drop it onto your other hand.
And if you drop your money on the ground, good luck.
Either way, it can be slightly embarrassing. I mean is a penny REALLY worth five tries? Maybe that's why I always find pennies on the ground; people just leave them there. I pick up pennies and dimes and quarters (obviously). Maybe my time is worth a little less than the guy who dropped it. Or maybe I'm just super lucky!
Yeah! Let's go with the second one.
I went as a chaperone for a first-grade field trip to a park. I know the field trip sounds pretty lame already but it was a huge park with lots of things to do. It had rides, sandboxes and even a petting zoo.
Children love animals, and they love making noises like “eww” and making gestures that explain how they are feeling at the moment like the whole “someone farted” thing where the kid clamps her nose with her hand and points at
me someone.. Even though its totally natural and maybe that person had a lot of green vegetables earlier that day.
We were walking through the stables when I saw a group of kids saying eww, which apparently also attracts a large group of them. One of the kids looks up at me and asks,
“What IS that?”
“What is what?” I asked, looking around waiting to see a cow taking a massive dump or something.
Then I see it.
That, my friends is a picture of “Lil Sebastian” from the television show “Parks and Recreation”, but it clearly explains what I saw. And yes it is blurred.
Kids have no boundaries when it comes to awkwardness. I tried to change the subject to the ostrich eggs but they kept asking about it so I did what any mature individual would do in a situation like that: I started singing Old McDonald had a farm… What? It worked for a little bit.
What would YOU have done?
