U-Haul, Part 2

I almost forgot the best part of the U-Haul story. When Isaac and I finally left, and started the long walk across town the F train, cursing and smoking and shaking our fists at the sky (OK, my fists; Isaac was mellow as usual), I decided to call my Mom to tell her I was OK. She has Mom radar, and I was afraid her spidey sense was tingling. So I called her up and told her that we had dropped off the U-Haul, no problem and that I might have called the manager a big fat ugly bitch. There was a pause on the other end of the line.

“Jennifer Lynn HUBLEY,” she finally gasped. “What’s HAPPENED to you in that city?”

Then she said: “You tell that Isaac that I’m going to knit him a sweater.”

My mother, ladies and gentleman! Now and always the Nicest Woman in North America.

  1. Oh please. You know Mom would have ripped that woman’s tonsils out if she’d been in that situation. Maybe not when she was in her twenties, but now she certainly would. She also probably would have refrained from calling her a bitch but gone for a major artery instead. I, however, would have just sat there in the truck crying until they either let us in or called the funny farm to take me away.

    Love you!
    Mrs. P.

  2. Jennifer Lynn HUBLEY! I most certainly would have grabbed that woman by the short curlies and swung her over my head. But calling her a big fat ugly bitch? Well, I thought I raised you better!
