A Moment of Maternal Snark

Teen mentality moment #467:

Me--(to child who has yet to brush hair and teeth or put on shoes) You need to leave for the bus in 5 minutes.

Kid--I got this. Watch and be amazed.

6 minutes later:

Kid--Mom, I need a ride to school.

Me--You missed the bus. How amazing!

Sarcasm probably isn't the most dignified response to modern dilemmas, but it's certainly the most satisfying.
