Vacation funnies

These are things that I said, yes, I said 'em, to people on vacation. This post takes up space, proves how much of a smartass I am, and fulfills many other things only I keep track of. Enjoy.

Conversaion with Mrs Claus

MC. "Happy Holidays"

Me- *blank stare*

MC "and Merry Christmas"

Me- "OK, now you've got it right"

Conversation with cashier at lunch place

Cashier- "Your total is $15.**"

Me- "No it's not"

Cashier- *extremely puzzled look on her face*

-cue roommate from my right-

Me- "our food is together."

Cashier- "Oh"

Many, many times it was noted how the larger folks were working on the moving walkways for the rides that had them at disney. The jokes about being on a treadmill flew, most initiated by my friend (who lives near disney, and works there).

By the end of the trip, I was ready to strangle most people in sight. For reasons ranging from randomly stopping in front of me, to not controlling their children, to just breathing my oxygen.

I should mention that even though I'm far from claustrophobic, I get very anxious when strangers stand too close to me. I blame work for that.

Back to the grind tomorrow, so we'll see what happens.

Hahahahaha.... How did you get thru Disneyland? Just the thought sends me to my therapist!

Very carefully.

In all seriousness, we were actually at universal. My friend offerred to get us in Disney. Neither set of parks were really all that busy. The only place we had any problems was magic kingdom, and the only things we rode were the train(no line), and space mountain (45 minutes or more, part line, part mechanical issues).

This is the "value season", everything is a bit cheaper but not near as packed.
