The Good, the Bad & the Ugly: V2

The Good

My mom came home with this for me yesterday!

Snickers Nutcracker

Happy clearance find to me!  I need to pay more attention to the after holiday sales.

The Bad

I haven’t used my gym bag since moving here in September.  My lock is attached to it.  And now I cannot remember the combo to said lock.

My options, as I see them at this point.

  1. Drag bag around with unusable lock attached.
  2. Cut the loop the lock is attached to.
  3. Take a hammer to the lock, hoping to break/release it.
  4. Try cracking the lock combo.  Tried.  No-go.

The Ugly

Last night, my mom almost ran me over with her minivan.

I kid you not.

We were leaving to run a couple of errands.  I went out to the garage with her.  I then went to grab something out of my car and then back to her van.  Well, apparently she thought I was still in my car because she could see my headlights in her rearview mirror, so she started backing up.


My lights were on because they come on when you unlock it in the dark.  I was currently walking around the back of her van to get in on the passenger side when it started moving.  Luckily, I noticed the movement and got out-of-the-way.  Talk about a mini-heart attack!

She will NOT be teaching OMG Becky how to drive.  But maybe that was her plan all along…

Share your good, bad &/or ugly!

    I would definitely keep trying to crack the code on that lock! And I guess that means lug it around for a while more also. Mmm nutcracker snickers 🙂

    I am intentionally avoiding the holiday clearance before I end up with 100 Reese’s trees. So good! Anyways, I’d ask the gym if they have a lock cutter and can help you out. I can’t think of anyone else with a lock cutter to ask, but the gym usually has one.

      I hear you on avoiding the clearance aisles. They can be so tempting! And it’s so hard to resist when a fav has a deep discount.

      Great idea about asking the gym. I’m sure they have encountered this problem before!

    I’m duper impatient so I’d probably take some bolt cutters to the lock. After Christmas sales are the best!
