*Editors Note: This post is meant to be funny.
One of the many things retirees have to deal with in their retirement years is their adult children and their respective grandchildren. When I hear retirees brag to me about their wonderful, adorable grandchildren and their amazing parents, I only have one word for them: bullsh**t.
If you delve deeper into their touts, you’d probably come up with a plethora of self-contained complaints. If pushed far enough, many may contend they’re on the brink of nervous breakdowns.
Sometimes I don’t realize how lucky I am. Or used to be. When my daughters found out I voted for Donald Trump, they didn’t speak to me for almost 1.5 years. I thought that was a very bad thing. Now? In retrospect, those 1.5 years brought peace and quiet in to my life.
Since most issues between us have currently been resolved (we have agreed to never discuss any sort of politics between us ever again) my daughters and I have returned to some sort of pleasing family relations once again.
That sounds like a good arrangement, right? Or is it? I wonder.
My daughter recently asked me if she can store some of her older baby clothes in my house. It’s an understandable request since she lives miniscule in the city and I live in a more rural abode that includes a basement. While she was visiting, her husband
brought sneaked the items into our basement and stacked them neatly on some shelves. (neatly is the keyword here. you decide.
Here’s the result:
Here’s what their/my bedroom closet already looks like:
Remember what my beautiful guest bedroom for her originally looked like? (click here)
Despite the fact that I have a completely empty chest of draws, clothes are thrown all over the floor:
And despite the fact that I spent over $15,000 to put in a magnificent bathroom and remodel the second floor for them, this is what they have done to it (and yet they still insist on using MY bathroom instead)
Tonight, Nick and I are going to wear our #MAGA hats (we don’t have them but we’re going to find a set!) we’re going to tune our two flat screens onto FOX News and FOX Business permanently and hang up cardboard posters around the living room stating that we are ‘Pro Life’ and GO TRUMP 2020.
I’ll let you know how it all works out.
