...we're interchangeable!

Guest asks me a question about a place they, for some reason, absolutely must go. I tell her how to get there and how long it will take. I leave the room. DH comes into the room and guests says to him, 'So it's about 30 minutes away? Which way do we turn?'

I can hear the look on his face. He has no idea what she's talking about or where she's going.

After 4 days of grandchildren who I would dearly love to have at my disposal for a couple weeks (THEY would think they had been sent to  purgatory), and almost 39 years of listening to Himself for 24/7, today I am ready to either commit hari-kari or go to jail for murder! I have just been asked when they new bridge will be finished - "you work at City Hall, don't you know?" While I am tying to take care of other things. I have nothing better to do than listen to him tell me whose birthday it is today and answer when the State is going to finish building a bridge across the river! Save my sanity!!!

I must confess I've done that TO guests as well. Talking to one woman, she went upstairs, her sister came down, and I didn't notice it was a different person for a few minutes. I hope I would've noticed if it had been a MAN though.blush In all fairness the women did look and dress very similarly.

Yeah, I have probably done it and not even realized. The one thing I DO however, and know about it, when couple sit across from each other. What the heck people! If everyone did that I would have all the partners mixed up! They say "no I am married to HER" and point across the table. I always laugh and say "Well then, why are you sitting next to her?" the other friend.   The say "oh yeah she can kick you better from over there when you say something you shouldn't..." Which is true.

There are certain people that look alike. I wont go into details, it is not ethnic or anything, it is "ERA"

The one that makes me smile is in the mornings DH shows people to their table, serves them tea/coffee, chats, takes orders and serves their breakfast, while I'm in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove.

The number of times people have said to DH, "wonderful breakfast, thank you" while I'm stood there or told him what a great cook he is. They think he does all that running around AND cooks their breakfast at the same time. What do they think I'm doing, sitting in the kitchen with the newspaper and a cafetiere of coffee??

Sometimes DH will pass the compliment , if he's had a good nights sleep and feeling a bit impish, especially if he knows I'm in earshot he'll take the credit.

You know I hear that as well, as I am wiping sweat from my brow thinking what the heck do they think it comes out of a box or something? I know they mean well, you wonder if they have ever cooked, as they have no idea. Today two seatings, to accommodate an early check out, and then sit and wait until the next seating comes in, again...the food will just mysteriously appear and the table cleared and set - VOILA!

Same said person spilled red wine over the white coverlet.  The wife said she knows it will come out cuz he does that at home all the time.  Me "uh why are you drinking red wine over a white coverlet people? Move the dang thing off the bed!"

Were your ears burning last night? All four of them?  

DD started school and her psychology class she had showed one of those videos where a lady was at a desk/hotel or something, then the guy who was helping her bent down to get something and someone ELSE replaced the guy, Totally different looking.

A couple minutes later...The woman was asked about both men, and she said "I have never seen this man in my life" and it was the last guy who was helping her.

So i told your story. She got a kick out of it!
