WTF Wednesday

I’m starting a new segment on my blog called WTF Wednesday.  I’m not going to promise a WTF post every Wednesday because I may not have one or more likely, I will have forgotten that I have declared Wednesdays as WTF Wednesday.  So here’s the premise:  There are a lot of things that perplex me.  These aren’t major life issues, or quantum physics, just odd happenings that ended with me thinking, “WTF?”  I’m not searching for answers to these conundrums, but I am curious about your thoughts.  I came up with this today because I was thinking about an event that happened 2 days before my wedding.

I had my bachelorette party the Thursday night before my wedding.  It was a fairly conservative affair and by that, I mean we didn’t have strippers or lots of penis paraphernalia.  I spent it with my best girlfriends out on the town and later had Ryan, my brother and a few of the husbands/fiances/boyfriends of the girls meet us.

There are a couple of things that I distinctly remember about that night.  One was my sudden love of Jägerbombs.  I don’t know how they do it.  Separately, I don’t think I could stomach Jägermeister or Red Bull.  I find them both to be disgusting, but together…it’s a glass of deliciousness. Probably the reason I only really remember a couple of things about my bachelorette party.

The second was a woman, maybe in her 40’s, who approached our table later in the evening.  I was wearing a fuzzy, pink tiara as per the American Bachelorette tradition.  On her way out of the bar, she stopped and asked me if it was my birthday.  I told her “No, I’m getting married on Saturday.”  I’ll let you guess what her response was:

  1. Congratulations!
  2. Best wishes on a wonderful life together!
  3. You’ll make a beautiful bride!
  4. I hope it works out.

Yeah, it was #4.  And as you might have guessed, the next words that came out of my mouth were “What the fuck?!”

Hence, WTF Wednesday.

  1. The day of my wedding, I took all my bridesmaids out to brunch before we went to get our hair done. The girls told the waiter that I was getting married that day, and the guy said, “I hate marriage.” At least your person was semi-positive.

  2. As you know, many teachers just got laid off, well tentatively. A teacher at my school received her hand delivered letter on Saturday, she was at home due to the rainy day. The mail carrier handed her the letter and said, “I used to feel bad when I handed these out, but they do it every year now and every year you all get called back.” She was left speechless.

  3. I am always amazed that people don’t have a filter. I wonder if after people say things about hating marriage (that’s just a stupid thing to say – it doesn’t even make sense) or having no empathy about someone losing their job, if they feel bad later in the day. I think we have all said things we regret, but I know sometimes I nearly have an anxiety attack if I have said something really stupid.

  4. Seriously how do you remember that? I had to stop & think was i at amy’s party? Oh yeah, i think i put it on…i do remember the crown, thanks to pictures! She definitely left an impression.

    • Oh Sara…Yes, you did put it. You were the best woman so it was your job. I don’t remember if you got me the tiara or if that was someone else, though. If I never told your, I do appreciate you not penising things up.
