Averted a SF tragedy: Found all of the pocket squares that I thought the movers had lost in January.

I'd like to see that claim to the movers.  "Yes, you lost my pocket square collection which has a replacement value of $5,000"

"I'm sorry, sir, but we were there all day moving your furniture out and you'd apparently already packed and moved all the toilet paper. But don't worry, I threw your handkerchiefs in the laundry and will send them right back to you when they're done."

Last week the goddamn movers left the bed frame for our master leaning against the wall of the old house. Lol.

I did claim quite a bit and they didn't want to pay it. I bitched to corporate HR and threatened small claims (along with some broken glass items they wouldn't replace because I didn't save them for inspection). Fortunately, hadn't taken action yet. On a positive note, I had started buying replacements...more is always better.

We're headed out to Utah tomorrow for my dad's funeral. So tonight my wife just dropped the dog off at the boarding place and then we're dropping our 14-year-old son off at a pool party. So we're going to go out to dinner before coming home to pack and get ready to leave.

I am sure that at some point during a nice dinner alone with my wife I will think briefly to myself how wonderful it would be not to have 1) a dog and 2) a 14-year-old son to be responsible for. happy.gif Then the moment will pass.

frown.gif I'm so sorry VD. Condolences to you and your family

Awkward story time

A friend, an acquaintance, and I were walking to a cafe nearby where we had friends waiting, a cafe I've been to many times before. Only I couldn't figure out where it was even with the help of a smartphone. I felt bad for the acquaintance for making her walk for so long that I strongly offered to hold her bags for her and reached for them. She refused. I insisted and she refused again. Then said it wasn't heavy and that it contained her father's ashes. Then it was an awkward silent five minute walk until we finally found the cafe. Found out later her father had just passed away a day or two earlier and the funeral was happening in a week.

😂😭😥😰

Thanks, man. I appreciate it.

That would be awkward AF and I can't help but feel a bit of heeby-jeebies about her carrying her dad's ashes around with her to social engagements.

We basically intercepted her on her way home and asked if she had lunch and if not would she care to join. I guess she was hungry

It was a paper Starbucks bag too and all I could think of were inappropriate things to say. Kept my mouth shut on that one thank god

You're almost there, man. If your son is anything like me, you only have about 20 more years to go until he becomes fully independent. You can do it!
