An Open Letter to The Dumb Girl Who Will One Day Drown in Her Own Ignorance

Dear Dumb Girl Who Will One Day Drown in Her Own Ignorance,

You may not remember me, I was the woman who approached you several weeks ago and asked to purchase some socks for my children so that they could play in the Playland at the McDonald's in which employs you. I may have slipped your mind as I'm sure you have better things to think about...Or perhaps I am a very vivid image and you still call your friends to have a laugh over me. Which ever the case may be, I am writing this letter to inform you that, you my dear, are an ass.

Dumb Girl Who Will One Day Drown in Her Own Ignorance, I went back to your place of work today with my children. My children who again were not wearing socks. In lack of available seating in the normal dining area (and we will call it a dining area because apparently this is a 5 star eating facility because it does not have a drive through), I was forced to sit myself in none other than the Playland area. Upon entering the Playland that is enclosed with sound proof glass and much resembles it's own separate restaurant, I could not help but notice this sign hanging on the door...Visible only to the people sitting inside of the Playland area (which had prevented me from seeing it the last time I was here.) The very site of this said sign made my heart feel all aflutter for 2 very different reasons. Reason #1) My children could now play on the Playland WITH SOCKS THAT I PURCHASED AT...(GASP)....MCDONALD'S after their lunch, get very worn out and maybe even sit still during the movie we are about to go see. Reason #2) It made me want to go behind the counter, find you, drag you into the Playland area, rub your face into the sign and then kick you in the ass just for good measure. And just so you know, I looked for you. You were not there... Or you were hiding from me, that could be possible. But let's just say you were lucky enough to have had the day off. Maybe you were fired for all of your ignorance. That could be possible too. This now makes me wish you had in fact called the manager over to help you laugh at me and then your manager could have rubbed your face into the sign for me. And then sold me some socks.

For all of your stupidity, I am now the crazy woman standing in McDonald's taking a picture of the door. This makes me like you even less. I am at least grateful that I was able to prove my self right and anyone else out there that ever doubted that McDonald's sold socks.


PS. I hate dumb people. I hate dumb people that think they are not dumb. I hate dumb people that think they are not dumb and find it necessary to laugh at me when I AM RIGHT.

I would like to say that when I first posted this story I got some comments that I would have loved to add to the Asshole Hall of Fame. However, I refrained from doing so because I thought maybe I was taking the tone of the comments wrong and they may have been meant to be in good humor. I get just a tiny bit crazy when someone suggest that I may be wrong about something. Just a little. Any suggestions?

Yes, I know I act like a child when I get pissed


Yes, It is not very lady like to rub in my superiorness

Yes, that last comment just provoked more hate mail for me

Ok, I'm gonna go think about happy things so I can post about all the HAPPY things that I did today.

    well, shit, i wanna see the 'mean comments'.
    send them my way! send them my way.

    also a ps. to your letter (that has no correlation to your story whatsoever, but i haven't gotten around to making my own letter, and since you wanted in on it in the first place...)
    P.S. Dear President Bush,
    Please lower gas prices. I am spending whatever is left of my paychecks that you DON'T take from social effing security, on gas.
    Because of this, I am money-less, and mad.
    Thank you for your consideration.
    P.P.S - DGWWODDIHOI- HAHAHAHAHAHA, you're an idiot! HAHAHAHAHA, and it makes me laugh really hard!

    AHAHAHAHAHA!!! BRAVO! BRAVO!!! you, my girl, is my hero today! LOL! i hate it when people make me look stupid when it fact they are the ones who deserve to be laughed at!!! ehehehehe!!!

    It's ok. I hate dumb people too! I have no patience for dumb people. Especially ones that work at BP with fingernails so long she can't function at her job - of manning the register at a gas station. When there's 20+ people in line and you can't pick up credit cards or cash off the counter because your ghetto-nails get in the way, don't expect your sad attempt at a smile to win us (the 20+ people in line) over and smile back at you.
    And it is SO very ladylike to rub in superiority when necessary. I mean, you can't help it that you are right and the dumbass is wrong, so please, feel free to rub rub rub.

    Last time I was at the McDonalds in Lewistown, PA (which has a very big indoor play area), I looked for signs and even asked if they sell socks. They said at one point they did, but haven't for years.

    Nice blog. You should see mine sometime...



  • At 12:00 PM, Blogger A Career Woman and A Housewife said…

    Thanks for the letter to Bush! Loved it!!! If you go to that last post about the socks and read the comments you could probably guess wich one pissed me off.

    you know I love you girl!!! Right back at ya!

    I can't tell you how much you crack me up. PLEASE START YOUR OWN BLOG!!!!! Then we can all write about how superior we are!

    This is exactly the reason I have nothing but love for you! Who else would go and ask about the socks?

    I stopped by and left ya a comment...hope you come back!

    Housewife, I would keep going back there until you find the asshat that did that to you.

    Dear my wonderful girl:
    I love you very much, but please please please stop turning off the air conditioner, please I beg you. I am tired of sweating. Thank you.

  • At 6:40 PM, Blogger Bumbling Bav said…

    I too have seen the sign that Mcpukes sells socks!

    5 ***** for what???? *- for all the fat, * for making parents sit in those horrid chairs that poke in your back cause they are little fries,* for the dumbass that try to paint a frighted child's face.... oh my list goes on.

  • At 11:27 PM, Blogger Bug said…

    BUT, at least Maccas sells chicken caesar (caeser?) rolls. I would marry one of those if I could. Although there wouldn't be much of the snuggling and gossiping, I suppose

    Bush must pay for oil prices, since even over here in Aussie-land I'm paying $1.19 a litre for petrol. I don't get paid enough for that kind of price!

    Just wanted to let you know that I came across your blog for the first time today and spent four hours reading the entire thing:) I love it!! I too am a housewife and can totally relate. Thanks for the interesting reading material.

    I agree with free to be. Be on the lookout for the twit that gave you misinformation.

  • At 10:19 AM, Blogger heather said…

    Yeah - I live and work with those type of people... I can sympathise - Gosh, Erik would kill me if he saw this. I LOVE being right though!!!

  • At 9:20 AM, Blogger Mrs. Belle said…

    Awesome. You know that employee had probably drowned in a box of socks or something!

  • At 7:17 PM, Blogger Erin said…

    am convinced you both crawled in corners and aren't crawling back out.
    i've re-read this post like fifty thousand times.

    am hoping that ya'll are safe and okay!!!! and come back and see us soon!

    I am surprised that people who are as “smart” as yourselves believe that the price of gas and oil is controlled by the executive branch of our Republic.

    Er... are you guys alright? Silence.. Lots of love anyway xx

  • At 5:28 AM, Blogger Shelley said…

    Hey there!!!! Found your site through Bav! Just love your writing and will visit again. Here in Nova Scotia they have the same rule with McDonalds and socks, but I let my kids run in barefoot and then promptly put them in the bath. Noone stops us from letting the kids have fun because they are sockless. Keep up the sass, lovin it!

  • At 12:26 PM, Blogger Erin said…

    mr. anonymous can bite me, as he cannot obviously take a joke or sarcasm.

  • At 9:01 PM, Blogger vegemiterules said…

    G'day Morgan and Nikki,

    Sorry I have not been around for awhile, my PC has crashed and burned and I now go to an Internet cafe to keep up with my blogging family.

    Notice that you have not posted for awhile, I hope all is well and that we hear from you soon.

    Take care.

  • At 11:56 PM, Blogger Dahlia said…

    It's even worse when you have dumb people who think they know it all.
