MARY ANN-ENOUGH SAID

I MENTIONED A COUPLE OF BLOGS AGO ABOUT MY SISTER M. A. GETTING DWAYNE GOOD. SO HERE GOES.

ONE MARCH DAY,7 YEARS AGO, THE DAY WE HAD BEEN WAITING FOR. MOVING DAY. FINALLY, WE WERE GETTING TO MOVE IN OUR NEW HOUSE.
WE HAD BEEN MOVING ALL DAY AND HAD OUR GOOD FRIENDS COME OVER THAT NIGHT TO SEE EVERYTHING AND HANG OUT.
WE WERE SO EXCITED AND PROUD! UNTIL, THE PHONE RINGS!
I CAN STILL SEE IT. DWAYNE IS ON THE PHONE WHILE I AM CHATTING WITH OUR FRIENDS IN THE LIVING ROOM, OVERHEARING HIS TONE OF VOICE CHANGE. SO NOW OUR ATTENTION IS ON HIM, WONDERING WHAT IS GOING ON.
HE KEEPS SAYING: IS THIS FOR REAL? NO ONE TOLD US THIS!
THE WOMEN ON THE PHONE IS DEBBIE M. (MARY ANN'S FRIEND IN REAL ESTATE).
SHE WAS GOOD! SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT TO SAY! BUT IT WOULDN'T HAVE TOOK MUCH TO FOOL US. AT 24 AND 20 YEARS OLD WE WERE REAL GREEN TO THE REAL WORLD TO SAY THE LEAST.

THE CONVERSATION GOES LIKE THIS: DWAYNE- HELLO. DEBBIE M.- THIS IS D M WITH THE BANK OF DADE BRANCH IN NASHVILLE (SHE ASKS ALL KINDS OF ?S ABOUT OUR LOAN). DWAYNE IS ANSWERING EVERYTHING, VERY SERIOUSLY.
SHE PROCEEDS TO TELL HIM THAT WE WERE NOT SUPOSE TO MOVE IN UNTIL OUR LOAN WAS CLOSED. DWAYNE SAYS WELL NOBODY TOLD US THAT. SHE EVEN SAYS, YOUR LOAN OFFICER EDDIE B. MUST HAVE FAILED TO TELL YOU BUT THAT IS OUR POLICIES. SHE USED ALL THESE BIG TERMS AND WAS ALL PROFESSIONAL AND KNEW INFO. ABOUT US THAT NOT JUST ANYBODY WOULD KNOW.
SO DWAYNE IS ASKING, WELL WHAT ARE WE SUPOSE TO DO MOVE EVERYTHING BACK OUT? SHE SAYS YES. DWAYNE SAYS, WHAT ABOUT THE REFRIGERATOR? YES, EVEN THAT. THEN DWAYNE SAYS CAN WE MOVE EVERYTHING TO THE SIDE AND TAKE PICS AND THEN MOVE IT BACK. SHE SAYS, EVERYTHING HAS TO BE OUT BEFORE THEY COME AND INSPECT OR IT COULD TERMINATE OUR LOAN. WHAT?

SO, DWAYNE GETS OFF THE PHONE WITH A SLIGHT PALE LOOK TO HIS FACE AND TELLS US ALL SHE SAID. I AM SURE WE WERE STARING BACK AT HIM WITH THIS DEER CAUGHT IN HEAD LIGHTS LOOK. I DONT THINK WE SAID A WORD BESIDES WHAT. I GO TO RAISING CANE AND THINKING OF EVERYTHING THAT WE WERE FIXING TO ENDURE. "WE ARE GONNA BE HERE ALL NIGHT MOVING BACK OUT. "
THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT, I HAVE TO EXCUSE MYSELF TO MY BEDROOM TO SIT ALONE ON THE BED WITH TEARS IN MY EYES AND A SICKY FEELING IN MY STOMACH.
OUR POOR FRIENDS, I KNOW THEY WERE THINKING...GREAT! WE JUST HAD TO COME OVER TONIGHT AND NOW WE ARE STUCK HERE TO HELP THEM MOVE OUT.
THEY HAD JUST BUILT A HOUSE AND SAID THEY WERE NEVER TOLD THAT AND THEY MOVED IN BEFORE THEIR LOAN CLOSED.

SO, WHAT DO WE DO, WE CALL OUR LOAN OFFICER. DWAYNE CALLS HIM AT HOME! HE TELLS HIM WE JUST RECEIVED A CALL FROM A DEBBIE M. WITH YOUR NASHVILLE OFFICE AND SHE TOLD US...... HE SAID, I DON'T KNOW A DEBBIE M. AND WE DON'T HAVE A NASHVILLE OFFICE. BY THIS TIME WE ARE SOOO CONFUSED.
HE CONVINCES US THAT WE DONT HAVE TO MOVE OUT AND THAT EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE. HE WOULD MAKE SOME PHONE CALLS AND FIND OUT IF ANYONE CALLED FROM HIS OFFICE. RIGHT BEFORE HE GETS OFF THE PHONE EDDIE ASKS, DO YOU KNOW ANYONE THAT WOULD TRICK YALL LIKE THIS? DWAYNE HOLDS THE PHONE AND ASKS ME, HOLLY DO WE KNOW ANYONE THAT WOULD TRICK US LIKE THIS?
WE BOTH LOOK AT EACH OTHER AND IT HITS ME LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN. I YELL, MARY ANN!!!!!!!
POOR EDDIE, WE HAD INTURRUPTED HIS NIGHT AT HOME WITH HIS FAMILY TO TROUBLE HIM OVER MY SISTERS PRANK. I THINK WHEN HE HEARD ME SAY MARY ANN HE UNDERSTOOD VERY WELL. THANK GOODNESS EDDIE IS A MAN WE KNOW OR THAT BANK WOULD HAVE CANCELLED OUR LOAN AND CALLED US CRAZY. HE KNEW MARY ANN WAS CAPABLE OF DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

SO AFTER WE FIGURE OUT THAT IT HAS TO MARY ANN BEHIND THIS. I CALL MOM AND ASK HER IF SHE HAD TALKED TO MARY TODAY. ( I KNEW MOM KNEW ALL ABOUT OUR LOAN BECAUSE WE LIVED WITH THEM FOR 4 MONTHS WHILE BUILDING) BLESS THEIR HEARTS! I COULD TELL IN MOMS VOICE THAT SHE WAS LIEING. SHE COULDN'T LIE TO SAVE HER LIFE. SHE SAYS NOOO! SO I START TELLING HER ABOUT THE PHONE CALL WE GOT AND WHAT WE WERE GONNA HAVE TO DO. SHE STARTS CRACKING. I FINALLY SAID. IT WAS MARY WASN'T IT.

OH, WHEN MARY FOUND OUT THAT WE GOT EDDIE B. INVOLVED SHE ABOUT DIED AND WAS SO PROUD THAT HER EVIL PRANK WENT EVEN BETTER THAN PLANNED.

SHE WAS SO PROUD BUT I THINK SHE FELT BAD THAT IT AFFECTED ME LIKE IT DID.
BUT SHE STILL THOUGHT IT WAS THE BEST PRANK EVER.

Other than the fact your sweet self got upset, that is one of the most awesome pranks ever. LOL

Mary Ann ROCKS! :))

Mary Ann said...

Ok Bloggers.....just so you know that I am not evil to the core, let me tell you why Dwayne deserved that kind of prank! He had been sneaking up behind my mother when she was alone and scaring her. Not funny- so Wendy and I had had enough and decided to let the deacon feel the wrath of the Hammonds sisters. It couldn't have worked any better! I still belly laugh everytime we tell the story. Sorry about the stomach pains Holly!

Mary Ann,

We promise - WE ALL know Dewayne deserved it. I still owe him big time for taking pictures of my sink full of dirty dishes and texting them to everyone in Ider.

You and I need to talk. :)))
