It sucks...


It sucked today, all of it.

Potentially it should've been fun, me, my Mom, and my little sister going shopping, all day at a fancy-schmancy mall on the Eastside.

But it wasn't. Every store we went into although a lot of them were awesome stores, I couldn't try on a single thing. People looked at me and stared a lot. My Mom and sister and I all talked on the drive out there about me being pregnant and I don't think my Mom, even to this day, has fully absorbed it. She's in a state of denial. She still thinks of me as this dirty little secret which is why she took me and my sister to the far away mall, rather than the one we normally go to. She didn't want to run into anyone she knew. It made me feel really sad, that it was the reasoning behind going to the fancier mall (at least I think it was).

Both her and my little sister got awesome stuff, clothes, shoes, stuff they look really good in. Me? I got new underwear cause mine is just getting old. How pathetic am I?

I don't wanna get new clothes that I can only wear for a month, and I can't shop for stuff for when I am done being pregnant, I don't know if I am gonna go back to being my normal size or if I'll be one up or what.

I should've known when I first saw our waitress at the resturant that I was gonna have a bad dinner. In Ohio, you have to be 19 to serve an open bottle of beer or a glass of wine. She looked like she had turned 19 yesterday! She wasn't really sure as to what their medium steaks looked like (they should be pink all the way thru). She was pulling stuff out of her rear end when she was talking about food to my Mom. (Not smart, she was a GM of a chain resturant for 8 years and I have been serving for 5 years.) She actually told us she didn't know the answers to our questions!

She should've made an excuse and said something like, "Let me check for sure with my manager, ok?" Instead she said, "I don't know" and stood there like it was an acceptable excuse. They were out of the wine my Mom wanted, so she tried something else and didn't inform her beforehand that they were out, which is procedure so a guest can select something else, before they get their heart set on something only to be dissapointed.

My steak was ordered medium. It came out the first time a little over rare. Ewwww! It was practically mooing! Then I had my waitress take it back and put it on the grill and "take up the temperature." (For those know don't know resturant lingo, that means cook it more, so it is more well done.) It came back medium rare, still too bloody. I recently have had a harder time eating steak and beef in general if it is too rare (it's hormones) and it really grosses me out. This time a manager came out and got it, swapped out plates so I could eat my baked potato and veggies while I waited for them to cook it even more. Meanwhile, my sister's salad came out way before the rest of our dinners with no dressing. She sat there for like 10 mins. for me and my Mom to get our food before she started to eat. Not that me and my Mom would've cared, but she knows it's impolite.

My Mom ordered wine that she liked, she just guessed they had it, it was really common Chardonnay. Turns out, after the waitress said they had it, she came back to say they didn't carry it. Not just they were out, they didn't have it on the menu at all! I ended up dealing with 3 different managers, and none of them were on the same page. I am seriously considering writing them a letter detailing the incident and making some suggestions for their serving and management staff.

We did mention it to the manager that our experience had not been a good one and we pulled aside our waitress to let her know a few helpful hints. I still feel like it wasn't enough. To top it all off, she tried to make us pay for a steak we had to take back to the kitchen 3 times!

Are you kidding? Then the baseball game was canceled on account of rain, I got home and my puppy must've been upset I was gone all day, she chewed my brand-new New Balance shoes.

This day sucks. I'm going to read and go to bed, fuck it. BTW, today is Happy Birthmother's Day to me (like Mother's Day, but for "holding pens" like me, kinda neat huh?).

Toodles!

P.S. Happy Mother's Day to all those Mommies, I appreciate it all. More on that tomorrow...

So many things I want to say....forget the shopping shit! Forget your Mums strange way she is handling this and just focus on you and that amazing gift growing inside. Plenty of time to shop after you've had bubby anyway!!

As far as the meal...after 10 years in Hospitality Management, I am one of the most anal hotel guests you will find. Actually, that's not quite true, but I know right from you and it pissed me off whe it's REALLY wrong!!

Happy Birthmothers Day!! The end is hard, I am so proud of what you have done and continue to do.

Frangi xx

Wow, sorry to hear the day was so bad. Sounds like you need a hug, well, better service at a restaraunt and a hug... (Your kidding me, there isn't a hug smiley on AdultFriendFinder like on the Y). Anyway, Happy belated Birthmother's day. Hopefully your mothers day is better than the one we just read about.

Thank you all so much for your kindness, some days just aren't worth getting out of bed for, you just wanna take the day off from the world. Yesterday would've been a good day to take off.
