I was talking on the phone with Lauren today about how irrational toddlers can be.
They want their grilled cheese brown, but not too brown! Cut the crust parts off and cut them into triangles please. No! Wait! Squares!!! You RUINED it!!! Make it again!
"Could you imagine an adult throwing a tantrum like that?" She asked.
Well... Actually... I can relate.
When I was pregnant with Emily I wanted, no NEEDED, sonic cheese sticks with marinara. We packed our two kids in the car and drove to sonic for dinner. I happily placed my order and patiently waited.
When my order was delivered I asked for marinara and the carhop's reply was, "we are out".
I LOST it!
"YOU SHOULD F**KING TELL PEOPLE WHEN YOU ARE OUT OF SOMETHING LIKE THAT! WHY NOT TELL ME THIS WHEN I PLACE MY ORDER?!"
My husband apologized to the poor guy and quickly backed out and left.
I was so angry I started to cry.
I knew I was being irrational, but I wanted it my way damnit! He RUINED it.
The very next time a craving hit, I made sure to ask before I placed my order if they had marinara (in an accusatory tone).
Gosh my poor husband. He was catching on quick.
At some point I didn't ask for marinara and when I was brought my food my husband asked the carhop if he would go back inside and get some for me.
"I don't want any" I said calmly.
"Are you serious?"
"Yeah, I just want to eat them like this"
The carhop had a confused look on his face as he was obviously remembering our previous encounters.
Yeah, that happened. I had a toddler moment.
