Being Soleil’s birthday, she got to choose dinner last night. She chose, (drum roll because this is so unpredictable..NOT!) Friendly’s Ice Cream. In Boston, to not go to Friendly’s is to declare your allegiance to the Yankees. Jay’s parents are visiting for our science birthday party, so they were joining us for dinner. Somehow, their TomTom got them lost. All I know is that Jay was baning his head into the window saying "WHY ARE YOU SEEING A SIGN FOR PROVIDENCE RHODE ISLAND?"
When they finally arrive at the restaurant, MIL is upset because FIL kept insisting that she should do this that and the other thing. In addition, for no apparent reason, the TomTom kept sounding a bell. I took a look at the TomTom. There is a setting under safety for "Places of Worship and Schools". Of course, this option was set. And the alarm for this setting was "Annoyingly loud klaxon bell #1"
This meant, every time that passed within an unspecified radius of a church, temple, mosque or school, the damn thing went off. I would have fully supported my MIL if she strangled the designer of this software or my FIL for setting it on. Which ever came first.
