Seriously, so rude!

Today I went to Walmart to get our food for the week. I only had to take Jack because the others were both at school. Jack decided to make sure it wasn't really easier just taking one kid to the store instead of three by crying a lot and saying, "MOOOOMMMYYYY, MOOOMMYYY," over and over again for 20 minutes. Nice. This actually has nothing to do with what happened in the parking lot but I just thought I'd mention it. While we were putting the food in the car a moving van pulled up the row behind us and an adult couple got out. As they were walking into the store they looked over at us and the guy said, "Hey, some La Grandites. Hi Opie!" in a kind of stupid sounding hick voice. And then he and his lady friend laughed together at how clever they were and went in the store to buy some more smokes. So I said, "Hey, you guys look pretty white trash. You'd fit in just fine here." Okay..... so I didn't say it out loud.... and I didn't come up with it until five minutes after they were gone..... and no offense to the good people of La Grande, most of whom are not white trash. The more I type the words white trash the more offensive it seems. I'm going to stop now. Anyways..... take that moving van people. Don't make fun of my little red haired boy!
