Hi Folks:

It's a Sunday evening. Tomorrow's a federal holiday. I'm Ryzin' around tonight & thought I'd intro a topic related to one I'd seen on another Network.

Have you or anyone in your family ever "blamed" something on someone else w/i the family in hopes that you'd all get out of it easier?

Here's my story. I hope you'll post yours:


When my kids were little, my mother was their babysitter as I went off to work. They became very accustomed to being w/their grandmother, going out w/her, etc.

One day, she had both of my sons in the car. They were about 5 & 6 years old (14 months apart). She was traveling a residential street, going faster than she should &, yep, you guessed it, was pulled over. Before the cop got to her window, she told my boys, "Keep quiet. Don't say a thing!"

The cop & she had the usual discussion. "You were speeding, m'am," etc, etc. My mother looked as apologetic as possible & in her sweetest grandmotherly voice said, "I'm so sorry, officer. I really am, but my grandson here (she indicated the oldest, for whatever reason) has diarrhea & I'm trying to get him home. You understand, I'm sure."

She figured she was outta that ticket, no problem. What young policeman, a guy who looked like he probably had kiddies of his own, would not sympathize w/THAT problem?! No problem here. Everyone would leave happy, right?

"Oh, I'm sorry to hear that, m'am. I'll write the ticket quickly so you can get on your way."

*****

My sons are now 28 & 27 years old & everyone still goes into hysterics when this story surfaces.


Blessings -- Linda
