Better Pissed Off Than Pissed On...!
I've heard the old saying "better pissed off, than pissed on" all my life but never really took it to heart until yesterday!
All in all, things went well at the family tree! The only person to get upset about anything was me! I nearly lost it, but was able to control my temper and not cross the line! I know better and thought I was big enough to not let the sloppiness of others get my goat!
I kinda had a strong talk with my oldest about something he had said he would take care off back in November and still hasn't taken care of it as of today! Wouldn't be so bad, except that it directly affects me personally!
Let me explain what this is all about! Sometime early in November, I loaned my oldest my truck until he could find another vehicle to get back and forth to work. The inspection was up to date, new tires and exhaust, fresh brakes...all road worthy! Only thing was that the registration was due to expire December 1.
I reminded him of this several times and even made sure he had all the paperwork and insurance cards in the vehicle. So yesterday he shows up for the family get-together in the truck, I go out later to check the sticker and "GUESS WHAT?" Expired registration! Over a month to get it done, still not done!
I was not...and am still not a happy camper! We will see if the problem gets corrected this week! Hopefully, it will or the Hermit will highly pissed off, as we used to say! That's the meaning of the header!
BTW, the oldest is not a kid, but a grown-up in his late 30's! So this is NOT the kind of thing you would expect from a "grown person" or even a responsible teen!
Sorry for the rant, but I am not happy with the situation right now. I am, however, that the rest of the get-together went well! And that it's over for another year!
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit in the kitchen for a bit! I have some cookies!
