Saturday a paperwork catastrophe occurred.
The sequence of events:
Bubba went for an eye exam.
DH and I met him in the parking lot, and drove him to a restaurant, (due to the fact that he was, ya know, effectively blind.)
We sat down in a booth.
Bubba handed me his paperwork, including a prescription.
I put on MY reading glasses.
Read his paperwork.
Texted DD2 to find out what presbyopia meant.
Gave Bubba a present. Pair of readers. Coincidentally, they were for his prescription, 1.75!! ( that was funny)
Realized paperwork was missing within 3 minutes.
Tried to pull a U-y,
but inconsiderate drivers in front of us in the turning lane refused to get out of the way. What would a little head-on collision hurt?? Can’t they see we have a paperwork emergency here??? Rude.
DH went back into restaurant.
Came back to report paperwork had been thrown away.
Wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Darn rushing bus boys!
Ironically, while we sat in our booth, there were 3 dirty tables, the whole hour we were there. But apparently, there is a little known clause in the bus boy code of conduct that states: “Do not clean off tables quickly, UNLESS customers left something of importance. Then, you MUST clean it within 5 minutes, or your pay will be docked 5 %.”
So, poor Bubba was left paper, and prescription-less. Thank goodness we gave him those readers, or he’d still be blind to this day!
