Insanely Stupid Birthday Card from My Inlaws

I just went outside to get today’s mail – and there was a birthday card from my mother- and father-in-law. Those of you who have been reading here for awhile know that I don’t like them a whole bunch, and it’s mutual – they pretty much can’t stand me either. That’s why I don’t feel bad about laughing at their card, rather than repeating the “it’s the thought that counts” mantra.

The front of the card says:

A Birthday Quiz:
A woman is heading to her hair appointment when she spots GEORGE and BRAD hitchhiking on the side of the road. She only has room for one…

On the front, there’s a woman behind the wheel of a car, and cartoon guys that are supposed to look like Brad Pitt and George Clooney.

Inside, the card says:
Trick Question.
A woman would never risk missing her hair appointment for ANYTHING!

Stop and digest that for a moment.

ARE. YOU. KIDDING. ME? First of all, I’d miss a hair appointment for far lesser things (I nearly missed an appointment once because I couldn’t seem to shut up on a phone call – sitting in the parking lot of the hair salon unable to find a reasonable ending for the call). I am just not that into my hair (and, my sister is a stylist – so I’m fairly sure she would understand and squeeze me in elsewhere should I need to reschedule).

I don’t know why this card annoys me the way it does – but my god, it annoys me. I guess because I’ve never been such a foofy girl that I am that wrapped up in my hair – and that I would be so much concerned with my hair, that I would miss out on an opportunity to squeeze both George and Brad in my car (and the answer is: She finds a way to take them BOTH).

    I saw my BEAUTIFUL George walking on the road needing a ride I’d forget I had hair…and a husband LMAO! They are weirdo’s!

  2. Thank goodness mine don’t give cards. Just cash.

    I wonder, have your in-laws actually met you? 😉

  3. They’ve met me… But… They’re… Um. Yeah.

    They have no clue.
