It’s funny how over the past few days that I have been trying to keep an eye out on whether or not I am truly unreasonable or not, I am indeed finding myself having several “emotionally charged” reactions about what others would see as small things. You may remember the story I told you about the lemon in my tea. This one may just be an equivalent on the unreasonableness meter. Here’s’ my story and you can be the judge.
It was a morning just like any other morning. Baby girl was looking for her Shopkins instead of getting her shoes and coat on, Surprise was eating his second bowl of cereal, The Plan was Snapchatting (I don’t think that’s a real verb but oh well) while simultaneously styling his hair and Mr. Liberty Dee was still home although his alarm and started going off two hours prior and I was not feeling well and I was running late.
I managed to drop The Plan and Baby Girl off on time and as I got to the GO station realized I really wasn’t well and decided to turn around and work from home (a wonderful little perk). I called Surprise to make sure he had headed off to school when he informed me that he was out having breakfast with Mr.LibertyDee and that Mr. LibertyDee thought I should join them. Sure I thought, they were just up the street from our house and I had to eat anyway so off I went.
Mr.LibertyDee had ordered for me and the food was just being served as I got to the table. About half way through our meal I notice that Surprise is drinking orange juice from a bottle.
Let me explain that we were NOT having breakfast as McDonalds or at some crappy breakfast buffet. We were at a place that we frequent often which serves a nice fresh breakfast and “fresh orange juice” is on their menu. Here’s’ what happened next:
Why is surprise drinking out of a bottle?
I don’t know, that’s what they brought
Since when do they serve orange juice in a bottle?
I don’t know, maybe they saw he’s a kid and gave him a bottle to put in his lunch box
That makes no sense, why would they give “a kid” bottled juice? If he’s here for breakfast why would they worry about his lunch? (I start to scan the menu)
Look! Right there! “Fresh Juice” the menu says Fresh juice. Why do they have fresh juice on the menu and then bring over a bottle of juice and if they do that for kids it’s stupid no They’re stupid because the bottled juice has crap in it why do they want to feed crap to kids?!
It’s ok hon. I don’t think we have to make a big deal.
I realized at that moment that I had completely worked myself up. My heart rate was elevated , my face was warm and the only reason I didn’t address it with the restaurant is because I though maybe I was over reacting a little bit and maybe my reaction was a little “unreasonable”.
As I’m writing this though, I think that I should have said something. If you go to a restaurant for breakfast do you not expect fresh orange juice?
OH NO!!! I just thought of something…
What if in all this time I have been going there, they have been serving me bottled orange juice in a glass? Disguised as fresh orange juice! AUGHGHGHGHGHGH!!!!
