In Which I Totally Fail As A Youngster

A few nights ago the Baby Angel wanted me to book tickets online for a band we are going to see in October. Now I am not familiar with the band and in fact wasn't all that keen to see them but it's the BA's friend's birthdy and it was all she wanted for her birthday and I am such a soft hearted mum.

Aaaaanyway, I went online and typed in the name of the band with other keywords such as concert/gig/Adelaide.......nothing.

I typed it in words. I typed it with digits instead of words for the numbers. I typed a combination of both. Still nothing.

In desperation I called the BA.
"I can't find this b***** band anywhere BA! Is there some weird way to spell it? Come and see what I'm doing wrong."
"Show me what you've tried Mum."


three oh three

three 0 three

3 oh 3

"Oh der Mum" she exclaimed as she typed it in for me


..........................................I have no words.

Reminds me of the days when my mom said, "Whose RIO Speedwagon (that's how she pronounced it) is this?

Just so no one asks, it was REO Speedwagon, said, "R E O" as if spelling it.

You know you'll be hearing about this for ages, don't you?
