Spanking at Sam's Club

Just thought I'd describe our hot Friday night out with the kids. By the time Tyler got home tonight I was at my wit's end and dying to get out of the house. So I figured I'd cross Sam's Club off my to-do list for tomorrow and we could go get-er-done as a group. We were DEFINTELY going to need some nourishment since I haven't really been cooking too much this past month we headed to Jason's Deli. (Of course we did!) Anyway, despite the spilled soda no less than four minutes after we arrived, we had a decent experience (which considering our number of kids 10 and under has increased, our odds have considerably dropped.) Then we went to Sam's and I was all about super-shopping to finish before Briggs needed to eat. So, I sent the boys with Tyler and the girls with me and we made our way through the store meeting up again over by the soda storage. I could literally hear Brevin and Brock squealing through the whole warehouse and when we walked up to the checkouts Brock totally whacked this lady on her butt! I kid you not! I didn't actually see the smacking, but heard the lady say, "Oh, did you just spank me?" WHAT! I looked at her to Brock and back at her and said what any other totally embarrassed mom would say, "Shut up! Did he really just spank you?" She was totally cute about it and pretended like she was going to tickle him or something and Brock's laughing while trying to hide behind my legs. I was still in shock, but I spotted a conveyer that was pretty empty and rushed over there so we could get out of the store. OF COURSE, the man in line on the aisle next to us has to comment about how full our hands are with all our kids. Next thing I know Brock has smacked him on the rear end. Old man was a little bit more crusty than the lady was and he totally gave us the "you are bad parents" look as Tyler grabbed Brock and explained to him he couldn't hit other people. So, good times on date night. The night ended with me literally carrying Brock out of the store whilst Caylee and Brevin whined about not getting an icee (hello! we'd just taken them to dinner. sheesh!) Shrug! I'm thinking we'll be getting a babysitter for every Friday so we can have a decent date night. Ya know, the kind that doesn't involve spanking strangers!

The kind that doesn't involve spanking strangers AS OPPOSED TO the kind of date night that involves spanking someone you're much more intimate with??? Kidding...sorta...(ahem!) But you're just asking for it on this post!

ok-I am now wiping my screen off from the food that i was chewing when i read the sentance
"shut up-did he just spank you?"
Classic Line! So-did he ever say why he felt the urge to do that? Oh who am i kidding, he is a kid, he doesn't have to be responsible for his actions-we-his parents do. At least according to the old man spankee. Seriously-the funniest thing i read all day! Made my day! A tip-next time-get a sitter and be like the rest of us-date night is spent grocery shopping, long gone are the days of romanitc dates-been there done that-where do you think all these kids came from, The stork?

Okay, Tausha called me and read me this post over the phone. I about died for you!!! I bet you just wanted the ground to open up and swallow you. So I just wanted to come over and express my....... What is the word I am looking for,condolences,compassion for the whole situation. I could see that happening with one of my kids so I feel your pain.

This was pretty funny to read but I'm sorry you had to go through that. And about the old man..I seriously hate when people give you looks because I have 2 little ones. It's like they have forgotten the days when they had kids..unless they haven't had any!
And is it just me when I go out with the girls they act SO bad?

Freakin' HILARIOUS...I hope you're laughing now-I'm sure you weren't at the moment. Oh that Brock, what a crack up!

John Petersen said...

Can't stop laughing after reading that one. I'm almost crying.

Ok. I've been way behind on my blog reading and that was the funniest I've heard in a long time...because my son Spencer did the SAME thing as a kid! It was a phase. A very humiliating phase. Thanks for the laugh.
