It seems to me that more and more people seem to think that they should have to thank the giver these days, even in person, nevermind an actual thank-you note.
She was beyond rude. I cannot imagine.
I am a bit jaded because I am disgusted with the whole house selling thing anyway. My grandparent's house has been on the market for two and a half years. It was built in 1954. My aunt poured nearly $15,000. into it for new windows, painting, repairs, and a new furnace, etc. It is not new, but solidly built. IF I had the means, I would buy it. My husband, who has built houses himself, said that it is built MUCH better than many new houses he has seen lately. That is...
Return the favor on Father's Day. I am SO tired of this crap that some so-called "men" say about how their wife is not their mother. So what?

The thing about this subject that really bothers me is when I read about men who refuse to pitch in, even when the wife is sick as a dog and can barely function. I am sorry, but if you cannot rest, and get well, you can get sicker and sicker and then what? I think it is disgusting when a guy lies around and acts like the world is ending if he is sick, but when his wife is sick, he asks, "what's for dinner"?
