I Have a Gigantic Orange Football In My Driveway.

(aka this is my 100th post and I'm super happy because I never thought that I'd get this far!)

Several weeks ago my husband was offered a promotion at the company that he works for (Go Bobby!). With this promotion he got longer working hours, more responsibility, almost 0 extra money, a 4 HOUR daily commute.... and a company vehicle to do it in.

Please Bobby's employer, don't do us another favor, PLEASE.

Bobby came home yesterday (yes he had to work on a Saturday, and we'll be making the trek as a family today on.a.Sunday for him to check on things again...) with said company vehicle.

I'm super glad that this orange eyesore will be parked in our driveway now...

It's so horrible all I could do was laugh. Bobby and I are pretty plain car people. I drive a white suburban and he drives a white Dodge truck. Oh yeah, and this orange piece of crap, and now this company vehicle.



Did anyone see the last episode of "Modern Family"? The one where Phil gets the family minivan wrapped with his slutty new Real Estate advertising? (if you haven't, and really you should, go watch it on http://www.hulu.com/ - its "The Musical Man" episode).  That's what I felt like when Bobby rolled up with our wrapped minivan. All I can say is "thank God it only has 2 seats and we'll never have to use it".

Fantastic... 100 posts :)) That's quite a car... such a contrast from white cars !! Great news about the promotion but no extra money and lots of extra work must be disappointing if he has to work long hours... they must think the orange car compensates :)) Hope you're keeping well and think of you and your bub often :) xoxo

You are too funny! I am proud of Bobby for promoting but think he deserves some other perks--besides the fabulous orange car.

This is hilarious!!!! The orange car reminds me of my honeymoon where we got a rental car that ended up being a hideous bright orange hatchback! So funny!
