Karma Rocks...

til you're the target!

So last night I sent the Oldest Boy a text, "I am calling the Police if you don't text me back!" Well, he COULD have been a kidnap victim, you never know!

And then...

Last night at 1:15AM, the house phone rings. Me, having only been asleep for half an hour at the most, stumble over to the phone. I don't answer if I don't recognize the number. It rang again and I made a mental note to beat the ass of the Youngest Boy in the morning, because surely, this had to be one of his friends!

I had fallen asleep on the sofa, watching that vampire show, so I went back to the sofa. The doorbell rings.

It's 1:45AM.

Do you know how slow your brain works at 1:45AM? It's like Windows 3.1 SLOW.

I stand there, thinking, and not doing a very good job. I am hoping that whoever it is will go AWAY.

"Ding Dong"

Me: "Why am I the ONLY one hearing this?"


Me: "Okay, maybe that is the last one."


Me: "F..."

I open the door to a local police officer. It's a good thing that Mommy Mode doesn't seem to be working at 1:45AM.

Officer: "Your mother-in-law has been trying to call you but it keeps going to voicemail."

Me: "Maybe that is because everyone HERE IS ASLEEP."

Officer: "You might want to call her."

Me: "Thank you officer, I'm sorry you had to come out."

They always say, Karma comes back at you 3 times worse than you dish it out.

I believe it.

Boy your police are awesome. We called ours last week because our neighbor was shooting a hunting gun really near our property and they said "nothing we can do." Really.

See, that is the beauty of our police too...they come to tell you your mother-in-law is calling but won't do anything when you report a REAL crime.
