It was early in the morning and I was dropping Lukas off at the before school program he goes to a couple of days a week. Granted, I am rarely doing drop-off at this particular location. That would be Mrs. LIAYF's job, while I am dropping off Annabelle at her daycare several miles away.
But this particular morning I had both of them. And I was in a hurry after learning last minute that I was needed to do his drop-off as well.
So as I entered the building with my baby girl in one arm, and the mother I mentioned above - acting like she was also in a hurry - queued up behind me, I approached the check in screen and pressed the button to get the process started.
I then pressed the button again with the same result. Then again, and again. "What the....?" I thought to myself.
It was at that point I turned to the mother behind me, as described above, and asked what I was doing wrong. I was obviously stumped.
"You might want to try using the mouse" was her reply.

Yeah, like an idiot I had been pressing the button on the computer monitor over and over expecting it to respond like our Kindle Fire tablet.
"I guess we live in a touch screen age!" I sheepishly replied, feeling pretty foolish.
Thankfully, as I mentioned, I don't drop Lukas off at that location very often.
I'm sure she won't remember me.
