ANOTHER MRS. CRANKY HANDWRITING QUIZ
It has been a while since the last Mrs. Cranky's handwriting test.
Mrs. C's handwriting is horrible, even with Catholic School training. From time to time she expects me to be able to read her lists and she sends me off to the store. She goes over the list before I leave but by the time I get to the store I always have trouble with some of the items. I call her on the cell, and sometimes even she can't remember what she wrote. The problem is not just the handwriting, but she also writes in a weird Mrs. Cranky code.
Here is a current list she sent me with. There are twelve or thirteen items, I'm not sure. I can identify about five...I think. Mrs. C was baffled on two for a while, but she figured them out.
Give it your best shot if you want to enter. The winner gets a mention and a WHOOP-TEE-DOO. The winner from cranky family members or friends who enter and get the most correct answers get a free dinner out at a multi-star resturant.
Another mention and WHOOP-TEE-DOO will be awarded to the funniest interpretation.
Answers next Tuesday.
My guess: rice, chick manual (probably for you), sugar, creamer, green tea, T bank, shelf liner, paol, t f ave, tissues, ant spray, tooth paste, sure, cotton, cold pills. How did I do?ReplyDelete
I see milk, chick marinade, sugar, creamer, green tea, tissues, ant spray, toothpaste and several things written in Klingon.ReplyDelete
3 solutions for you:
1. Next time she goes over a list with you have pen and paper ready and write down what she says.
2. Have Mrs Cranky type the list
3. Buy what you think she means plus whatever you want.
Milk, (Abr) chicken marinade, sugar, creamer, green tent, TB ANR (obviously that vaccine you were after), shlifliner/paol (must get some of that myself), TB bus (for transporting that vaccine), Tissues, ant spray, toothpaste, sure, etten and coldpil (essential medicines for post vaccination symptoms).
Yes - I see your point.
I'd be coming home with: milk, chocolate mayo (could be maryland cookies), sugar, creamer, green tea, no idea, shelf liner?, tissues, ant spitty (I guess that could say spray), toothpaste, sure (deodorant?), no idea(cotton perhaps?) and cold pills. I reckon I've just about cracked Mrs C's writing even if I don't get a whoop tee dooReplyDelete

Good Lord, she doesn't have some scribble going on. Reminds me of a doctor I worked with years ago. I was the only one of the sergeants that could read his orders.ReplyDelete
Charmin Toilet Paper
TB? How can you bring that home?
Haven't a clue what the last one is in the first row. She can go without that.
I still think she's insisting on TB.
Sure (She's sure about the toothpaste?)
Etten (must be from China)
That's my best guesses.
Have a fabulous day. ☺
Is that English?ReplyDelete
It’s easy. My wife always gives me the same list.ReplyDelete
1. Elk (I guess chops).
2. Chic Magnate (That was just a note to you. You need not buy anything).
3. A gift for the San Ramon Valley Girls Athletic League
4. A Weimaraner (So you don’t get lonely)
5. Guacamole tea (I suppose for vegetarian guests)
6. T Bone steak (That was really easy)
7. Shellacked Potatoes (I guess she doesn’t want them to rot)
8. She wants you to sign her up for Karate lessons while you’re there.
9. A Sweet Pie (math symbol for pi & text messaging symbol PISS for put in some sugar)
10. Asparagus (one of my favorites)
11. Toupee (in case you want to look younger at the party)
12. Mrs. C., I don’t want to embarrass you, but it’s spelled SOUP.
13. Gas up at Exxon while you’re out
14. CIDPMSL - Another text message combining Crying In Disgrace & Pee Myself Laughing (because she knows you’re going to screw it up)
Did I win?
Wow! When I spotted "Catholic school training" I thought I'd already won the prize. I write exactly like a nun and thought I could decipher Mrs. C in a breeze. Not!ReplyDelete
Your comment section is hilarious! I laughed out loud at all of them. So many comedians gather here every day! I can't compete, so I'll just say you shouldn't be buying ant spray. Not good for the environment. Just sprinkle corn meal at their port of entry. In keeping with the Halloween season, they will eat it and die :(
I'm not guessing Mrs. Cranky's list, but I guess the WHOOP-TEE-DOO prize should go to JJ!ReplyDelete
It's easy. She wants you to pick up a T-Bone steak and a big potato. And a bottle of vodka. And a cheesecake. Easy-Peasy.ReplyDelete
(a scribble to get the pen writing)ReplyDelete
(the royal insignia of her royal highness)
(cross signs in case of vampires)
Here's what I got (without looking at anyone else's answers :)ReplyDelete
I look forward to next Tuesday
Well each one of my answers has been previously given.. plus some that I didn't know. It will be fun to see what the actual list was. Sorry, Mrs. Cranky.. but it's hilarious.ReplyDelete
OK here is what I would look for:ReplyDelete
Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Padded Shelf Liners
TP Big (toilet paper big rolls)
or either you could go for the first dozen things you see as long as chocolate and roses are included because you most likely are going to mess up on everything else on the list.
