It's like waking up next to a stranger?



Or kissing a frog, and finding out...it's a frog?

So you wake up next to your partner, the one you helped through college, suffered and survived the first couple years, and this morning you find out he SOLD YOUR CAR and gave the money to Rich Uncle Dick.

WHAT?

"Well, yeah, Uncle Dick is a really difficult family member, and he was going to disinherit everybody if I didn't give him some big money, so I sold your car and gave him the money. He'll be nice to everyone now. It's not the deal I really wanted, but it's the best we can do."

WHAT? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THAT'S TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!

"Okay, get all sanctimonious and be right about everything, like you always do. See where that gets you with Uncle Dick."

UNCLE DICK DOESN'T WANT YOU IN THIS FAMILY!!! HE'S NEVER BEEN COOPERATIVE WITH YOU! WHAT THE HELL!

"Well, obviously, you don't know what it's like to actually get things done."


We've now hit a really bad spot in this marriage, Mister P. And you're not even following rules of proper engagement.

  1. Yup - I think that fairy tale kinda nails it. Except I would add that three years ago you fell in love with this frog and made pollywogs on the first date, two years ago you married the frog, and you've been wondering where that frog went.

  3. Rich Uncle Dick won't be satisfied until he has all the cars.

    Great cautionary tale for The Season, 'Gal!

  4. Uncle Dick once again manages to completely baffle my lowest possible expectations. Pre-emptive surrender on every big issue we have faced is really getting tiresome.
