Mike Rowe is a funny guy and we think we might know where he got it from. Recently, he received a sassy email from his mother after she had called him several times during the weekend but failed to reach him.
In her email, she describes the fiasco she and Rowe’s father went through trying to find her lost purse at a local Walmart. And let me tell you, this woman is a talented storyteller.
It’s frustrating enough losing your purse, but it’s even more dramatic when you’re dealing with the sometimes unusual people of Walmart. Her purse was big and blue, which should make it easy to find, but she had to go on a serious scavenger hunt.
Her letter has all the makings of a great story from a frustrated mother! In it, she throws guilt at Mike for not calling and proceeds to rehash the crazy day she had at Walmart.
Watch Mike read his mother’s hilarious email below:
It’s no wonder Rowe is such a powerful writer and excellent storyteller, as well! He must have heard stories like his mother’s Walmart purse search all his life!
Update: Mike Rowe went to work, and 36 hours later, he checked Facebook and found that thousands of people have loved hearing him read the letter from his mom.
Take a look below and see his joy and appreciation:
It’s easy to see that Mike loves and appreciates both of his parents. He clearly gets his determination and sense of humor from them. It’s funny to think of his dad reading through over a hundred thousand comments about their Walmart adventure.
