Because im still looking for mine. Especially when im around my sister-in-law
My wife had come to me, one day, ohhh about a year ago, and told me this tale of 'woe and awwww' about her sister. Me, being the simpleton that i
can sometimes be, easily gave in with no resistance and allowed the sister to move in, on the premise that she and her 2 year old daughter would be
there long enough to get on their feet and out the door.
You're probably bored already. Welcome to my life.
Short list of things im growing increasingly angry with
1.) She'll do dishes, but not clean them. I can't tell you how many times i've went to get a fork, and there's still food crusted to it. Or ill
get a glass and be drinking from it, only to find out there's still crusted milk in the bottom
2.) She lets her daughter run rampant! MY GOD
i know kids will be kids, and thats all fine, because the kid doesnt know better. But the parent does. Really ticks me off
3.) She pays us a sum of 200 dollars a month to live with us. We have our own house, garage, big yard, etc. 200 dollars a month covers all bills,
her "rent" etc. So basically - we're not really getting anything out of it.
4.) She keeps bringing this idiot "boyfriend" around who loves to talk about how much he hates "the 5-O" and how cool gangster life is. Dude,
we're from a central illinois town, we're in the middle of a corn field. Just because you listen to 50-cent doesnt make you hardcore. pull up your
5.) She's all around annoying and obnoxious
All that said, i say that even though i dont like it, i still do things for her that nobody else would have. Especially letting her live there for so
cheap. So why the complete lack of respect and payment? Money isnt everything. Wash dishes, do some yardwork, etc.
Instead she sets on her lazy bum all day long and dreams of being a police officer. Kind of conflicts with her current "boy" friend
There are days i dont know why i put up with it, and i loose all patience
Because if you combine this crap with the REAL problems we, as adults, have to deal with from time to time, it really makes you question your
So i ask
Where do you find your inner patience with the crap you have in your life?
