Blow Out At The O-K-Frugalis Corral

January 18th, 2008 at 05:45 pm

Okay, I must admit I turned into a raving lunatic last night as CashHappySon did it again with the poor attitude, smart mouth and inability to follow directions (read that DIRECT IN-YO-FACE disobedience). Gaaa!!!

This was after I had just laid down my CC to the tune of $220ish dollars to have his car repaired because he's blown all his money. Only to come home and find that he has now targeted something else minor that just NEEDS to be fixed. (No, it's a clunker, I'm not paying to fix all this crap!!!)

I had a blow out pure old no bones about it CONNIPTION-FIT! Offered to leave the premises and let them all have it plain and simple and I would not stand in their way. (uh, I don't normally do that - Hubster and I almost NEVER fight.)

We spent quite a bit of time with him last night and Hubster says we're having another family meeting over it tonight. The boy is a brick wall and I'm a brick wall, and poor Hubster has to find a way to coalesce us into a functioning unit! Good luck to him.

Meanwhile back at the ranch somebody left the waitress a tip at the ol' Frugalis Bean Counter last night.

Taking it to the challenge!


$017.15 balance
+000.32 tip because evidently I'm a real beaut while I waitress, sling hash & rage against disrespectful & ungrateful children at the same time*!
$017.47 Jan MTD

2008 Challenge Total $17.47
Cumulative Challenge Total $546.08

*I do feel bad about raging, but sometimes people push you to the brink and it's time to push back!! But even so, I'm still a tiny bit flirty, ya know?

    Well now I feel a bit better, I had a raging rant this morning..not the best strategy I am sure, but good to know I am not alone (my kids are small, totally different rant)

    I feel better too! Thought it was the same as mentioning I had stepped in poo or something, simply not done, and that I was the only one here who ever lost their cool!

    So, a big thanks for chiming in.

    No, it isn't the best way to handle things and it irks me to no end when I lose it like that. Sometimes at my house it seems I have to get to HIGH aaah-oooo-gaahhhh ALERT for it to even register on Hubster's radar that he needs to step into the ring to disassemble the sparring partners.

    Sometimes you just have to rant to get your point across to those spouses and kids.

    So sorry to hear you are having this trouble with you son. I have been there and can definitely relate to your angst. You go right ahead and rant! I have a hard time doing that. (I keep everything in).
    My son is 24 now and doing some better.
    You know we have all heard that the 60 is the new 40?

    Well, the way kids take so much longer to become self-sufficient these days, I think 30 is the new 20! Takes 'em that long to get it together it seems.
    Anyway Lux, I enjoy your blog and especially your pics!
