Excuse Me, I’m Having A Blonde Moment

Wow. I really can’t believe that I did this today. Remember how I wrote about the last test I have to take for the job I am applying to? Well, the lady who I last talked with from the 2nd test, said I had to come back February 4th to take the next one.

Okay. So, I prepare all day for it. Picking out what I am going to wear, hair, makeup, printed out directions and figured out the best route to get there, etc. It takes about an hour to get there from where I live, and I had never been there. So I wanted to make sure that I got there with plenty of time to spare.

Well, I did. 2 whole days ready to spare! I realize only after getting there and talking with the older guy who works at the facility that it was scheduled for Friday and not today! Oh my God I feel like such an idiot. I look down at the paper and see clearly now: February 6th. NOT February 4th.

At least I know how to get the place now. /sigh

I made the most of it and went to Target after my Legally Blonde moment. My high heeled, pointy toed, dressy leather boots were killing my feet and I really needed a new pair of something for interviews/work. I lucked out and found a nice fake leather pair on clearance for only $18. Half off is nice. No spikey heel and plenty of room for my toes. Wiggle room yay! I also got a few really good deals on some tops. I got 2 for St. Patrick’s Day and one Love one for Valentine’s Day. Also, 2 tank tops I found were only $1.97 and $3.97 each! Score!

Oh, in reference to Legally Blonde. I have a story for you all to laugh at me about that too. This goes way back to when I was 13 or 14. My friend and I went to a mall about an hour away. We were shopping and ended up in the Dollar Store. I was looking at bumper stickers I could put in my locker or in my room. I found a red one with white lettering that said “Legally Blonde.” I had to have it. So, I took it to the cashier and asked him, “How much is this?” He laughed at me and said, “Um. A dollar. This is the DOLLAR STORE.” Hey, in my defense sometimes things in those stores are 2/$1.00 or something. Really, I’m like totally not dumb like okay? God!

Oh, and obviously the picture for this post is not me. It is the very blonde Paris Hilton trying to look smart.

Liz said...

OMGosh Sheri! That is too funny! I am sorry that you got your days messed up. I had to chuckle at the dollar store incident. That sounds like something I would do. :o)

I guess the bright side is that you won't be stressed on Friday looking for the place?

Congrats on finding some new shoes :) I need to get my butt in gear and go shoe shopping, along with taking a favorite pair to the cobbler to get them re-soled.

HAHAHA The blonde bumper sticker plus the dollar store comment, HILARIOUS.

I've done that with doctor's appointments too.

OMG! That is so funny Sheri!!!! You and Reese have a lot of things in common too. LOL!

Maybe you were meant to buy those new boots and other items from Target. <3 Target too!

BIBI said...

Bwhahahahaha! Sheri, I have never laughed so hard at a dumb blond moment. OMG! Hilarious! :D

Oh, dear, Sheri, I have been there, and completely blonde to prove it! Nice that you were able to save the wasted time and learn the way there so you arrive right on time (in better shoes!!) tomorrow morning. Good luck on the test.

I wish I could say that's never happened to me...showing up all dolled up for, as it turns out, no reason at all. But, I agree...at least you know where to go now.

As for the bumper sticker...the irony kills me...that's just too funny.

Lee said...

Jeese, that's hilarious.
The bumper sticker thing makes me laugh, but I get it too.
Half the time things at the dollar store don't actually cost a dollar.
