Tonight I met my friend Yvonne at Mac's to let the kids play at the playground thing. We realized how crazy we were when we pulled in and remembered that it was not an indoor play area. It's been very warm here today. So we ate supper inside and this is how it went for me. I ordered the girls chicken nuggets and for myself what I thought was an apple walnut ceaser salad. Turns out I could not understand that sign for anything. They plopped the apple/yogurt/walnut stuff on my tray and I looked at it and back at the sign and was really just very confused. I asked, "Is this the apple walnut salad? because it says snack on it" oh dear. Then my credit card would not swipe. We just started using a different card and neither Nate's nor mine swipes consistently. Very disturbing... must call them. I asked her if she could punch the numbers in and she got all helpless so I said, "I will just pay cash" and I did. And she is still talking to the person behind her about punching the numbers in and we had to cancel the transaction that never took place and really it was just a confusing time. Not to mention all the kids jumping around in the booth just behind me. So... she counts out my change. Food comes, get the children started on those nuggets and I hopped up to actually order myself a salad. This time I ordered the southwest ranch salad! No, no... that would be two different salads there. This is when I realized she never game me my $10 change. Only the 90 cents. No! You don't know how I hate these things. I was so tempted to ignore it. Yvonne would not let me however. So we finish up... I check again to make sure I did not stick that ten some strange place in my purse. Nope. Up to the counter I go. Anyhow... they were really nice and I walked away with my ten. Feeling like I don't get out much.The children played pretty nice and I only had to crawl up the slide to rescue Elizabeth once!
