A Sure Sign Of Amelia Bedelia Syndrome.....

Do not be deceived by the misleading sign, people. I stood outside this McDonald's for an eternity, waiting and pacing to and fro in the painted crosswalk for a watch that never came. :( It was all a lie-- a cruel hoax designed to lure in the watch-less masses. Is it time for a Big Mac Attack? Don't ask me. I wouldn't know since I don't have a McDonald's watch.

Okay, so today is a little lame. Just be grateful I didn't drop in any Stop! Hammertime! references like I wanted to. Truth is, I'm tired. No, make that weary, exhausted, overwhelmed, drained, pooped out. Okay, well you know me, I'm never really 'pooped out!'

I just wanted to post something, anything, before heading off to work......again. See you all when I've gotten some sleep and re-introduced myself to my kids as their mother.

nikko said...

Almost firstity first.

What a misleading sign. Reminds me of the ones down in San Diego with the people running across the freeway.

Go get some sleep!

This scam seems to be an epidemic. All I know is there are probably a whole lot of angry falling rocks, deer, and moose out there. Sheesh! Some people.

Bee said...

Sorry Elastic, they were crossing over by my house preventing me from turning on my street.

You're welcome to take them back cuz their shadow shape was so hypnotic... what was I yammering about?

Stacey said...

I would have complained to the management. That just ain't right to get people's hopes up like that.

Jean Knee said...

you sound like you were rolling and throwing well into the night.

The Horror! yep, Disney tried that same thing outside of the mickey empire.. no watches, then you think, well...I'm already here I'll just go to Disney Land.

marketing genius I tell you

BarnGoddess said...

gasp! those evil burger snatchers!

or are they frie snatchers?

I need Ventor Avenue for my monoply board, you dont happen to have one do ya?

Amanda said...

First they make fun of 'slow' children and then they offer watches and don't deliver! Where do they get off being so high and mighty!?!

Sorry you are so weary! Hopefully today is a great non-weary day! :)

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

And "Dead Ends!" Have they been talking to my hairstylist???

Have a nice nap. :)

Lisa said...

Ahhh, even a weary elasticwaistbandlady is funny. :) Have some fun with your kiddos!

omar said...

Liars. McLiars.

I was going to yell at you for leaving your first comment about the post being lame, because you can't comment right after posting and say that the post is bad! But then I looked at the time stamps. Your post is at 8:28 am, your comment is at 8:08 am. So you commented on your post 20 minutes before you posted it. Which not only doesn't violate the rule I was going to initially yell at you for, but it entitles you to some respect for even being able to do what you did.

aubrey said...

this was a fine're really much too hard on yourself. rest up and return with your usual vim and vigor.

Special K ~Toni said...

Thanks for the laugh- I really needed it today!

Suzanne said...

LOL! I loved Amelia Bedelia as a little girl and read book after book.

One sign that cracks me up is "SLOW children playing". They should really put "SLOW: children playing"!

When we see a sign that says "Dip in the road" my hubby always tells one of my boys that the road knew he was coming! :D

I don't know how I got so distracted from my original comment...

Suzanne said...

P.S. I hope get a chance for some good sleep so you can feel more like your bloggy self again soon! :)

wynne said...

Omar completely put my original comment out of my head. How DID you comment on a post before you even posted it? This is making my head spin...

No Cool Story said...

I believe this hoax goes beyond just a cruel joke.
I believe they are discriminating against Spanish speakers: So, English speakers get a free watch. What do Spanish speakers get? Nothing but a stupid caution about being alert about pedestrians.
I smell a class action lawsuit. Who is with me?

Bee said...


NCS, maybe you should have said "siganme los buenos!" :o)

carronin said...

I agree with Lisa you da bomb my hard working funny friend.

Elizabeth-W said...

I've just never seen a McDonald's with shutters before, at least that I can remember.

Tori :) said...

I didn't think it was lame. I was just a little slow and had to read it a few times. You make me smile you smiling infidel, you!

jams o donnell said...

It's an utter disgrace that a huge corporation should mislead people in such a way. The only reason I can see that prevents torch wielding mobs for burning down every MacDonald's place in Houston is that the angry pedestrians cannot arrange a time to meet... No watches, see!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

elizabeth-that's to keep zombies out. Haven't you ever seen Night Of The Living Dead? Everyone needs to have shutters on their domiciles!

omar and wynne- See it's long and complicated like this but it doesn't involve a DeLorean and plutonium and a crack of lightning to explain. I load pictures from my other computer with the camera. Then I let it sit as a draft until I'm ready to blog. This picture was loaded a few days ago so I had to change the time stamp on it. I'm lazy. Really lazy. I just changed the hyour instead of both hour and minutes. Voila! Explanation completed!

jennifer b.- Clever
NCS- Really clever
jams-Super clever!

The rest of you are clever and sweet for your super nice comments. See, if I'm tired and I ain't got no blog mojo left, at least I have the decency to keep the post nice and short and easy to read.

Nancy Face said...

But but but...that's just so SAD! Why didn't you get your watch? Is that Ronald MacDonald clown guy a LIAR or something? I just knew it! You can't trust a clown, especially the one who pushes Happy Meals.

You and Omar had me guffawing! :D

Lauren said...

HAHA! I cna't believe Mcdonalds LIED to you! The nerve.

rjlight said...

That's funny! I feel the same way when I go passed the "dip" sign and don't even see one chip in sight let alone dip!

compulsive writer said...

Tee hee hee!

Melissa said...

Those McD watches really aren't all that great.
Hope you get some sleep and some kiddo time!
