You Oughta Know
Someone who didn’t have a good mom – no placard, no license plate. Also, she drove in the “OUT” driveway.
My mom has a handicapped placard for her car because she uses a wheelchair. The old one expired and she got the new one in the mail.
“Can you put this in the car for me?” she asked.
“Sure,” I said.
“You know you can’t park in handicapped spaces when I’m not with you, right?”
I busted up. I just couldn’t believe my mom was telling me this.
“Mom! I….I WOULD NOT.”
“Well, lots of people do, you know.”
“Well, you never know.”
“You OUGHT to know.”
“Because I was raised by a mom who taught me not to behave like that!”
I think that made her truly happy.
