I care of course. Just not in the middle of the night.
Then she says wait, wait, her car is dead. Could I come pick her up from Action Foriegn Auto and take her home. Okay mom. Could I also take her to Radioshack? She wants to get this internet/email device which is not really a computer but an internet/email device. I was all Mom, what the hell are you talking about? Web TV? No, no. An internet/email device.
Man, I don't want my mom on the internet. She recently got access to it for the first time at her job and she goes crazy sending me online greeting cards with pictures of birds.
So I drag myself out of bed, get ready to go for an hour and go take my mom to Radioshack. Not like I'm going to go to Radioshack without having gotten ready. Pack of wolves. So we go. There is an asshole in there named Nick. Nick ignores my mom because he is watching a Britney Spears video on 18 different huge televisions.
There was yet another asshole in there whose name was undisclosed. He was eyeing me evily while I played with this flashing red light thing. I put my sweater on. Some guys with mullets came in. I told mom hurry up, I don't want to be raped now.
Turns out there is an internet/email device. There was a huge rebate deal on it which would've made it free. Which is why my mom wanted it. But Nick realized the rebate offer expired September 30th. This pissed my Mom off. Nick ripped up the sign and said sorry. Nothing he could do about it.
On the way back to the car, we devised plans for a Nick voodoo doll. I warned her about Radioshack. She simply would not listen to me.
