I Ask: WTH?

I walk out of the library and see:

DeLorean Gone Wrong

It’s like walking into a Back To The Future remake where Doc is poor.

It’s like the recession version.

And when I came back, POOF! It was gone.

Into future. Or the past. So if you suddenly start to disappear, you’ll know that your son is dating your wife.

And then, I am playing LEGO with my children and there is only ONE CONSTRUCTION WORKER for THREE TRUCKS.

Even my son’s LEGO box is letting people go.

So I tried to hire people for his LEGO set.

The saddest part isn’t Fred’s lack of a face. Oh wait, yes it is.

Even my 16-month-old didn’t fall for Fred. Instead, I negotiated World War Three. And I lost. Which may or may not mean I was stuck with Fred. Sad face. Or no face.

And then I stumbled upon this set of post it notes. Are they ironic? Or just killing more trees for the sake of sockin’ it to the greenies?

Because if this is serious, they clearly failed remedial ecology.

So I ask: What the heck is going on? Are you having a bizarre week too?

(My last bizarre week of pictures is here. And they are glorious.)

She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. An Impala masquerading as a DeLorean is JUST WRONG.

    And I’m also laughing at the lego worker and have to agree with Kitch’s astute observation. Yes, this is just wrong.

  2. I am so showing the car pic to my hubs. He is in love with Back to the Future. I do fear he’ll secretly find and purchase this car though. Sadly, the DeLorean never really took off, ey?

  3. I desperately want to know if that door was being held on with Duck Tape. Thinking more bush recon will be necessary next time.

    Also, curious if the crap on Mr. Construction Worker’s face is a beard he hasn’t had time to shave or leftover coffee. Based on the gritted teeth and clenched fists, I’m gonna vote coffee. I can almost hear him saying “I’m.only.one.plastic.man.” I know how you feel, Lego Man. I know how you feel.

    1. This: “I’m.only.one.plastic.man.” I know how you feel, Lego Man. I know how you feel.

      Made me giggle for like DAYS. I tried to figure out how to twitter it out but 140 characters of explanation ruined it.

  4. I want to know why I can never find a store clerk in any store on the planet, but when I walk into an upholstery fabric store I have 18 people offering to help me?

    Maybe the DIY industry is going strong?

    1. This: “I want to know why I can never find a store clerk in any store on the planet, but when I walk into an upholstery fabric store I have 18 people offering to help me?” is a mystery that I would like solved myself. I mean SERIOUSLY. How do the upholstery fabric stores even AFFORD to have that many people working for them?

      1. I have no answer. Seriously. I was at five different stores that day, and only managed to check out of each by hunting down a clerk.

        At the upholstery fabric store, where I just wanted to browse for a while, I had at least 15 people ask me if I needed help. I had 3 guys cutting fabric, two checking me out, and three carrying my stuff to the car.

        I only spent about $200. You’d think I’d bought out the store.

  5. **Even my son’s lego box is letting people go.**

    That is the funniest line.

    What kind of car has a wing door and isn’t a Lamborghini and resembles your mom’s Honda?

    1. I’m a bit honored with the compliment… seriously stop making me blush.

      ps. it’s an impala. and it turns out? you can do that with a Lambo kit. My mechanic friend let me know. And will be happy to let you know too. LMK to LHK, OK? (I have no idea what I just said)

  6. Your week sounds better then mine.

    Let’s see-3 broken sink faucets, backed up sewage (making a mess in the house), my grandmother’s sister passing away on friday, got the notice just as grandma’s cab was 5 minutes from my house as she was coming for the sabbath and I was still at work (and the mad dash to have the burial before the sabbath-in jewish custom we try to bury the dead the same day out of respect for the dead), terrible allergies and a much needed vacation nowhere in the near foreseeable future. Think I need to take a nap now.

  7. I was thinking about the replacement worker. Obviously Management was trying to fill the position with a robot. Union workers frown on this practice. Or was it an unskilled “Guest Worker”?

  8. um… seriously, I know you were trying to make Fred feel better for not having a face and all,
    but why’d you have to take the time to give Real Lego Dude a marker goatee?

    whoa, wait… are you actually posting a big fat coverup post b/c you had to hide the two other Lego men with poorly drawn facial hair that didn’t make the cut?…just go buy one of those plastic Barbie shoulder-heads you can put makeup on instead – as a bonus, you can cut and style her hair when you get bored, or just keep making her new marker goatees…
