Me and the wife spent most of the weekend on bad terms. We had a disastrous furniture delivery towards the end of the week that got us both in a bad mood. It turns out the warehouse got so slammed with business that they started putting people who don't normally delivery furniture on trucks and letting them drive routes. This particular pair of guys screwed up just about all of the 6 or 7 deliveries they made that day. (We were not told this until after the disaster.) They did a real number on our walls, and the final straw was when I saw one of the idiots sitting there strugging to figure out how to put the drawers back into our dresser after they got it into the bedroom. The guy sat there holding one drawer and trying to figure it out for about 10 minutes. When I saw that I kicked them both out of my house without letting them assemble my bed or anything else.

The warehouse manager came out the next day and explained what happened, and told us he had spent all day driving around to all the houses these fools had been to the night before to fix all their screwups.

Not a fun few days at all. Wife alternately crying and fuming, me having to deal with that and the customer service at the same time, her being mad at them then constantly second guessing whether I'm doing all the right things to handle it. Things have only just now calmed down but the owners of the furniture franchise are supposed to contanct us this week, at which point my house will get tense again.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

It kills me how women always get upset with their men when it's somebody else's fault. It's a good thing you kicked them out before they broke something.

Take her to dinner, buy a bottle of wine, tell she looks like she's lost weight and that somebody you know asked if she was ten years younger than she actually is, and all will be fine. You might even get some nookie out of the deal.

Did they fix the walls?

You should have bent her over one of the new pieces of furniture and put a smiile on her face.

My wife has a certain pair of heels that make everything match perfect for that. She knows what is gonna happen when she wears them.

I have had them resoled twice so far.

Sunday I am going to the Staffordville Rod & Gun Club annual stag game dinner. It has been a yearly event for me and the boys since the late 80's and the dinner is in like it's 85th year. The menu is the same, but it is always good.....

Full cash bar
Snapping Turtle Soup
Chili; either Venison or Beaver
salad and bread
Rabbit over carrots
pasta; ziti and sauce
Roasted Quartered Beaver
Dirty Mashed Potatoes w/Gravy
Venison steaks w/onions

$25.00 per ticket, topped off with a fine cigar for the ride home. Dinner is at noon, so later on in the afternoon me and the wife are going bowling, getting dinner, and hanging out with another couple.

Never heard of anyone eating beaver before - the woodland creature that is.

I should clarify...before the rabies epidemic jumped the Hudson River, New England wildlife did not have rabies. The Beaver dish took the place of Raccoon after the rabies outbreak. It is good eatin'!

Re: Wassup for the weekend?

I thought I was old because I remember this:



I didn't know at the time that she was into other chicks....heck at that time I didn't even know chicks could be into other chicks

Things have calmed down a little bit. The problem in my house is my wife likes to be in charge unless there is a problem, at which point her preference is to make me point man while providing a very loud running commentary on how I am handling things while I am speaking to people trying to resolve an issue. But then if I invite her to take charge and do it better she refuses. While all this was going on that particular long-simmering issue came to a head and had to be addressed.

A warehouse manager who knows what he is doing will soon be coming out to patch my walls up and reimburse me for paint. Then I will never order a piece from that bunch of goofs again. I would rather they have called me and told me my delivery would be delayed a couple weeks than grabbed the first couple of goobers they could find in the warehouse with driver's licenses and sent them to carry furniture into my home. I am sure the 7 other customers who had problems that day felt the same.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.
