I promise I teach my children manners!
Today we were meeting some friends for lunch at McDonalds. We were parked in the parking lot while I finished putting my makeup on. I man pulled up and it looked like the sleeve of his sports coat was hanging out the car door. I thought to my self poor man it is probably really dirty now. So the next thing I know Hogan is jumping up and down saying "That man doesn't have a leg, that man doesn't have a leg!" I look up and it is the man that I thought had his coat sleeve hanging out the door. I soon realize that is was really his empty pant leg. I am so glad we are still in the car with the doors shut and the man did not hear Hogan yelling. So I proceed to tell the children we should pray for that man because it would be really awful to not have a leg. It was probably really hard for that man to normal things that we do and that I was sad for the man etc...The kids agreed and so I finished my makeup and we went in. When inside the store the man is at the front of the line placing his order. We are several people behind him and I see Gates trying to get a closer look. I didn't think much of it because we had just talked about it in the car and I felt that the kids had understood how sad it was etc...The next thing I hear is Gates saying "Hailey that man doesn't have a foot, look Hailey that man doesn't have a foot!" I look up and the man is standing right in front of Gates and saying hi to him and Gates is saying that. I was so embarrassed! He was a sweet old man and was just trying to be nice. I couldn't get out of there fast enough.
