Hello there Sticky Apron readers!!! My name is Candace Larson. I am 39 and holding with two beautiful teenage children and a supportive husband of 21 years. My life is crazy, fun and full of shenanigans. I’m beyond excited to have the opportunity to guest blog for the site today!! Are you ready? Here goes….
About a month ago I traveled over 2,000 miles to downtown Savannah to help my daughter move into her dorm at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD.) It was five days of parent orientation, supply buying and the dreaded task of moving. The downtown area does not have a lot of food choices, so when we found an Arby’s after a day of hard work we were elated and extremely tired (when I get super tired I get slap happy and sassy; which is always in good fun.)
Yesterday we left the hotel at 10:30am and didn’t return until 9:45pm. We stopped to grab a quick bite, around 7pm, at Arby’s and here is what transpired:
“Hi, can I take your order!?”
“Yes, we would like….bla, bla, bla.”
“Ok, will that be for here or to go?”
“For here, please.”
“Great, can I get your name?”
Seems like a normal/routine question right? However, we were the ONLY people in the dining room….not even a car in the drive thru! So WITF, does she need my name? Naturally, my brain went into sarcastic mode!!
In a nonchalant tone with a slight smirk, I responded with “Sassy Pants.”
The cashier paused with a deer in the headlight look and said “Umm…okaay”
I quickly replied “Look, I’m tired and need a little fun this evening, so which one of your coworkers do you want to prank and make call out my name?”
Oh the sparkle in her eye and the Cheshire smile that spread on her face, tickled me pink and encouraged me to see this through.
“Yes, Ms. Sassy, your order will be right out” she responded with a giggle and a wink.
Three minutes later she instructed a young man to take our order to the counter.
Now like a logical guy, he looked at us with a smile and said “Your order is ready.”
My daughter quickly said “Who is it for? What’s the name for the order?”
I chimed in with “Yeah, what is MY name?!”
He turns and looks at the screen, did a double take, and turns to us and loudly whispers “Really?”
Then in my best Beyoncé voice I sang “Say my name, say my name.”
He smiled from ear to ear and said nervously “Sassy Pants.”
The place erupted with laughter for well over 30 seconds….yes, it’s fun to be a smarty pants…or a Sassy Pants, I should say!
Give this article a like below if it made you chuckle. Or if it down right made you laugh out loud then share it with a friend….because sharing is caring AND spreading laughter is the best medicine you can provide.
Thanks for reading and I hope to be back again to share more of my shenanigans. *Hint…Tell Sticky Apron you’d like to hear more*
