Gee, thanks for the heads up, Mom

Gee, thanks for the heads up, Mom

My mom called me yesterday from Lowe's. She and Step-dad were in the garden center. Apparently they'd gotten a huge new shipment of plants, but had nowhere to put them. The solution? Lowe's put all plants (all plants, everything from bedding plants to trees) in the garden center at half off (!!!) for two hours. The "sale" would end at noon. When did Mom call me? After shopping for nearly an hour, she called me at 11:52 a.m. It takes a minimum of 25 minutes to get from my house to Lowe's. Yeah. Thanks for the heads up on that one, Mom. Nice to see you've got my back. Then she had the nerve to call again yesterday evening to ask if I'd come over today and help her plant all this stuff she got for half off. *sigh* I'm a good daughter. Heading over to Mom's to help plant the plants.
