Ski Season is in full swing here in Goopville!
Families here leave every weekend to ski at their ski houses and every Wednesday schools offer ski clubs at a local mountain.
One of my loyal readers reminded me that at this time last year there was a very precarious episode that occurred here in Goopville while a mother was desperately trying to get skis to her son before his bus left for “Ski Club.”
It’s just too good to not relive. It is actually one of my personal favorites – so I have to share it again.
Plus I am taking the weekend off from blogging so hopefully this holds you for a bit!!

Nowadays getting children to school is much more complicated than it used to be.
It used to be that children who lived close to school would walk to school. Those children that didn’t live close would take the bus.
Because of the system in place to help deliver children to school there would be very little or no parents at United States schools in the morning or afternoons.
Those days are over.
Now “walkers” are driven to school. Nobody actually lets their kids walk to school.
Also, children that are meant to take the bus often don’t because “they don’t like it,” or their parents think “it’s a bad experience.”
This has created a new modern-day problem for schools across America. There is a constant struggle to maintain control during “school drop-off and pick-up.”
Imagine, twice a day, each educational institution must figure out a way to control all of the crazy lunatic mothers in their huge oversized vehicles.
As a result, school pick up is annoying and crowded and everyone is in a rush.
There are very strict rules and guidelines for drop-off and pick-up.
Everyone know the rules. They are very clear.
Many people simply choose not to obey them.
This week at an elementary school in town….the following “allegedly” happened.
During the usual hectic school pick up, a mother arrived at the school with skiis that needed to be delivered to her son.
Assessing the situation, she decided that the line of cars ahead of her was too long. Racking her brain of how she could best cut the line to get the skiis to her child – she made a quick decision.
She parked where anybody with such an emergency would park.
She left her car running and made her way to her son’s bus to deliver the almighty skiis.
Meanwhile little Hunter anxiously awaited his skiis.
Meanwhile, another mother witnessed the illegal parking of Ski Bunny Mom. After probably years of dealing with entitled behaviors from the mothers and children in this town, she couldn’t take it anymore (or maybe she just feels strongly about illegal handicapped parking) – either way she thought to herself “I’m going to teach Ski Bunny mom a lesson.”
She promptly got into Ski Bunny Mom’s running vehicle and peeled out.
When Ski Bunny mom got back to where she had illegally parked her vehicle it was gone.
Nobody had seen anyone move her car.
Nobody came forward to confess taking the car.
The car was found across the street. But Ski Bunny mom and the community was up in arms.
Moms took to social media to express their concerns and distaste for whoever would dare take someone’s vehicle out of the handicapped parking spot.
“This person should be arrested!!!” They all cried.
“We are great mothers and people!! We don’t deserve this!”
“Children without skiis are just as important as children that are handicapped!!”
“Mothers of children without skiis have feelings too!!””
After several posts on Facebook and Twitter – a token handicapped person chimed in!!
Did she scold Ski Bunny mom for parking illegally?
This only added fuel to the fire.
Some mothers even began to fight on social media. Some mothers say they will be watching and searching for the mystery car mover in the coming weeks.
Either way, this is a perfect example of what happens when people have too much time on their hands.
Even though it’s not right to steal people’s cars – I have a feeling the car mover and I could possibly be friends….possibly.
Either way – I really can’t make this stuff up.
HAPPY LONG WEEKEND!!! XOXO, LADY GOO GOO GAGA
