You guys? I'm almost starting to suspect that some of you are messing with me. My dad called. *sigh*
Dad: Hi, I know you're at work and can't really talk, but I bought a UPS and I need you to help me with it.
Dad: You know, one of those UPS things.
Me: *sigh* ... Umm?
Dad: For driving. A CPU.
Me: Wait, you just bought this? What does the box say it is?
Dad: Dammit, Lainey, it's just one of those CPS map things! Jesus, sorry I don't know the EXACT name of it!
Me: A GPS? You bought a GPS? WHY? I have one, you can have mine.
Dad: I don't want yours, I have my own now. Can you come by after work and teach me how to use it?
Me: Dad, you drive cars for a living, I'm pretty sure you know every single road in this city, why do you need a GPS?
Dad: Because I just DO. Can you stop by or not?
Me: Sure. I haven't had a headache in 3 whole days, so yeah, I'm about due...
Phone rings 20 seconds later:
Dad: Will this plug into my phone or does it get wired in through the odometer? (True story!)
Here's a bonus conversation for you. This took place a couple of years ago.
Dad: What's that one movie?
Me: Which one movie?
Dad: The one with that guy I like.
Dad: *sigh* You KNOW. The one with the Other Ben.
Me: You mean Matt Damon?
Dad: YES, what's that movie?
Me: I have no idea...he's in a lot of movies.
Dad: Dammit, Lainey, you know the one! The one with that girl who was like a crazy, teenager, stripper with the girl from Clueless.
Me: ... ....
Dad: YEP, that's it!
Me: That was actually Ben Affleck, not the Other Ben.
Dad: Oh, ok then, well what's that one movie with the Other Ben?
Me: I'm done with this conversation... I have a headache.
