Mallrats - they're just like us

***As you may, or may not have noticed, I've migrated to Blogger Beta, so update your feed urls to :

Hopefully I'll have the archives up and running again in the next few weeks***

Now on to the main story:

So I'm sitting in the food court eating lunch with a former coworker on Friday afternoon when a pack of mallrats descends on the table adjacent to ours.

We quietly mock them under our breath when one of the mallrats' girlfriends comes running out of the bathroom and hisses

"You got me the wrong kind!"

We kind of ignored them, I noticed that she was holding a white box but went on with my day without so much as a second glance.

She was still there talking animatedly a few minutes later so I looked up again and let my eyes focus on the box and quickly realized that it wasn't just any box, but that of a pregnancy test.

I started laughing so hard that I nearly choked on my sandwich and when my lunch partner looked up at me quizzically, all I could do was laugh harder and point. At this point, she saw what I was laughing at and joined in.

Really now - Who takes a pregnancy test at the mall?

Wrong kind?

What she got the male one?

What's the wrong kind?

And when do I get to post as choleric again?

Huh, why can't you post as choleric? Is it because it's blogger beta now?

I'm assuming he got her the kind that you have to wait for hours for a result. I'm not really too familiar with the ins and outs of home pregnancy tests but I do believe there is a kind now that has 'instant' results.

How can you do such a thing in a skanky ass public bathroom? Eeew and yuck.

Eric said...

Yeah since the beta switch, the only two ways to post are with blogger accounts or google.

It doesn't really matter to me, just though I'd point it out.

I think im one of the few non blogger commenters here.

Eric said...

Oh and instant to me just seems like... unreliable.

team gingerbread said...

Well, not that I'm familiar or anything but I know that false positives are almost unheard of.

As well, if you're that concerned you can always just go to your doctor to confirm or refute

Completely unrelated to this post: is it just me or does your blog look different than the last time I was here?n

team gingerbread said...

Yeah, it's not just you. The blog does look different.

I'm switching over to blogger beta and a bunch of stuff still needs to be fixed...
