Welcome To The Real World

OK~ Welcome to the real world, my beloved 20 year old son!  He makes an appointment to take his car into a repair shop....Here's the conversation....

Blaine:  "Mom, I'm taking my car in first thing in the morning."

Me:  "OK"

It's the next day, he arises at 11:00 a.m.  ~I tell him to text me when he gets the good word from the mechanic.

Blaine : "I'm so mad at this place. They told me to come back at 1:00 p.m. They didn't have time for me!"

This Mom is thinking, "Hello.....Welcome to the real world, First thing in the morning is NOT noon....from a mechanic's point of view, it's 7:30 a.m.- 8:00 a.m. " He then returns at 1:00 p.m. and they could not work him in.......Lesson learned- first thing in the morning is NOT noon and get a specific time! Unfortunately, he probably falls into line with many other 20 year old young adults.

Just goes to show that we all learn something new every day in life. This Mom learned that her young adult male does not grasp the concept of time and her young adult son learned that the world does not revolve around his schedule.......Uggghhhhh.....After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
