ShallowGal and the Giant Clusterfuck of a Day

Warning: Today's post contains strong language and may not be suitable for small children and husbands. Reader discretion is advised.

1. A situation that is totally fucked up,
especially as a result of managerial incompetence.
2. Military term for an operation in which multiple things have gone wrong. Related to "SNAFU" (Situation Normal, All Fucked Up") and "FUBAR" (Fucked Up Beyond All Repair).
I think that's pretty self explanatory. What? You need an example from ShallowGal's own life? Fine. Let's look at yesterday.

First ShallowGal headed out to the grocery store for frozen waffles and apples. And came home with shaving cream and cat food.

Fact: ShallowGal doesn't even have a cat. (1)

Fine. No harm done. By itself, not an insurmountable event. Possibly even just the tiniest bit eccentric, but in a cute quirky way.

What happened next was entirely this guy's fault. (2) Cause ShallowGal read his story yesterday and wondered what kind of loser pulls into a gas station and misses the eleven signs that say "DIESEL ONLY?"
In ShallowGal's defense, it is a slightly ambiguous sign

Dang Karma. Luckily the nozzle was incompatible with ShallowGal's gas tank saving her (and her car) from her own stupidity. But to be on the safe side, please nobody tell PCSguy. Thanks.

But still, at the end of the day, all that's just stupid crap. Here's what made today officially a giant clusterfuck of a day:

That can't be good

Cause we're all just sitting there eating lunch when BOOM ! The perfectly happy tree that used to be in our front yard was now on top of Millie's car. And that's when ShallowGal declared Sunday, May 4rth to officially be one giant clusterfuck of a day.

1) Long story short, ShallowGal had a coupon.
2) How often can you blame your stupid mistakes on an ex-reality tv star?

Wow... i feel kinda lucky. I think my car once parked in that very spot...

Ooooh, bummer. When our giant tree fell in our yard it only took down the power and phone lines. (And left the power and phone on, by the way.)

Incidentally, "clusterfuck" is one of my favorite words. It makes me sad that I can't say it as often as I like to because of all the little ears around me.
