I am above average height, 173 cm 5’ 8” so I am pretty hard to miss or not see, right? …RIGHT??? WRONG.
Here’s how the events transpired ( I like this word, I am going to try and use it all the time hehehe).
Last night I went out with my coworkers for a bite to eat after work so my husband had to pick my daughter up from school.
See, both baba 7aki and I have cars to make life easier so I won’t strangle him every time he needs to pick me up or drop me off.
This is my car, it’s cute, a small SUV so not like a huge car or mini van or anything. It’s not like there are 100 seats you can’t see, right? ..RIGHT????
Yesterday baba 7aki missed the train so he had to drive to Toronto to go to work, so instead of driving back home because traffic is insane he decided to leave his car in Toronto and take the train and then take my car to pick up little 7aki
This meant that he had to pick me up from the train station.
So I call him ahead of time to tell him when I will be arriving so I don’t have to wait for a long time (like he usually likes to do). My train arrives and I walk out to the parking lot and there he was waiting in the car with little 7aki in the back seat, so I was like, this is great, he’s here on time and little 7aki is there and she loves going to the train station so I was pretty excited ( yeah I get excited easily).
I opened the back door to give little 7aki a kiss, plopped my purse in the back, shut the door to go around to sit in the front , as I was going around, the car started moving, I was like , oh, maybe he needed to clear the lane for another car. But then the car kept moving farther and farther, I was like , WTF??? What’s going on, and then the car kept going farther and farther until it completely exited the train station leaving me stranded in the middle of the passenger pickup lane trying to think WHAT HAPPENED????
Some people would be so hurt that their husband did not even notice they were not in the car before they decided to drive off.
And some people would be mad as hell that the husband did not even notice them banging on the door while the car was abandoning them.
Some people would be puzzled to how a Father would hear his daughter crying in the back seat saying “where is my Mommy, where is my Mommy” and then still proceed to drive and leave the Mother stranded.
But I am not some people because I could not help but laugh and wait till he realized that I was not in the car and drive back.
I waited for 4 whole minutes.
He comes back, his face was white as a sheet preparing to be completely shit on, I tried to keep a straight face as long as I can and pretend I was upset so I can give him a hard time but I couldn’t stop myself from bursting into giggles when I saw his face.
This is gold, every time he is going to piss me off or annoy me I am going to tell him: “Oh, you are sorry? Are you as sorry as you were when you abandoned me at the train station?”.
I am going to remind him of it every chance I get.
I even taught little 7aki to say, “ You are a silly Baba. Did you forget Mommy at the train station?”
This gives the “Married people don’t notice each other” a new dimension.
