Hughsie die of a heart attack?

Hughsie is still alive, thankfully. Hasn't died of diabetes yet. Heart

So there's no excuse for him not to come back than?
With DL gone I need someone else to pick on.

Re: Ranting corner
I think my mom is losing her damn mind. For this escapade, remember that I get paid weekly to do her housework, shopping, bills, etc.

"Here's X amount of money; let's go to the store so I can see you buy something for yourself for your birthday (instead of paying the bills that desperately need taken care of.)"

Me- picking shit out and counting up the cost. Her- just get those; if it goes a bit over I'll get it. (It went a bit over, maybe 30 bucks.)

At checkout: "I'll put the extra on my card and we can take it off your pay at the end of the week." Oooooh. I start sorting and put a few things to the back. My mother, loudly, as if talking to a spoiled child: "What ARE you doing??! I SAID I was getting that, and I am!"
I pay the extra with the gas bill money. She shoves that amount in my purse. Wth? And I'm gonna pay it back on Thursday? No. I give it back. In the car, she says, "I owe you for my cat food. Just take it." Well that amount was the same as her expensive ass cat food that I picked up, that I was going to get paid for on Thursday. So... she gets to show out in the store and feel like a self-righteous ass while simultaneously getting me to buy what she said was a present?
I'm so fucking lost here.

Hug Maybe she was trying to do something nice initially and then it got lost along the way? I can't think of anything else. I would be lost too!

The next time she offers you a "gift" that way, tell her simply that a card (not a gift-card, an old-fashioned card) is fine. And do not go shopping with her under those circumstances again.
