Really??!! Are you kidding me?!

Has anyone ever done or said something that is just completely ludicrous, and you just want to look at them and say, “Really??!!”  This morning on my way into work, I was listening to Star 94, and they were talking about a place in Canada that was sponsoring goldfish races – now PETA is involved because it is cruelty to the goldfish.  Really!!??  They had listeners calling into tell their own “Really!!??” stories, and I started to think about my own.  I would have to say one of my biggest “Really” moments comes when someone asks me what I do for a living, and I tell them I teach middle school.  Their response is usually, “Do you like it?” or “Are you crazy?!”, and either way, I want to respond, “Really??!!  Did you just ask that question?”  Because I am certainly not crazy (don’t throw me under the bus students), and would I really teach if I didn’t like it?  Honestly?  I don’t think so.  If you want to check out some really stupid laws that will make you say, “Really??!!”, check out this website, and then tell me what your “Really” moments are.
