Things You Don't Want to Hear While on the Phone with Your Mom

December 4, 2008

The following actually happened to my wife, the Comely and Buxom and Easily Terrified Boudicca the other day while discussing a tea pot or some other Jane Austen shit with my mother-in-law.

TC&B&ETB: "Yeah, mom, I thought you had it in the spare bedroom."

Mother-in-Law: "Oh, you're right! Let me put a shirt on and go look for it."

I came home to find her curled up in the fetal position in the corner of the dining room, rocking back and forth, tears slowly leaking down her cheek, far-and-away distant look in her eye, muttering softly over and over again for the bad man to go away.

And people wonder why video phones have just NEVER taken off.

Yeah, I could have lived a life time without hearing something like that. I charge my Mom 80 dollars every times she says something that has the potential to send me into therapy for years. Only fare she should pay the co-pay :-)

Something about Lisa charging her mother for things like that doesn't make it any better. In fact, quite the opposite.

Yeah, it's just wrong on so many levels. Come to think of she has never paid me for any of her comments....
