Not until I trust them a bit. Until then, everything is locked in the gun safe or the pistol safe.

I'm not entirely sure what she told them except for the bit about the shotgun. Before they took her outside, she was babbling something about how I was standing on the stairs holding it and told her "you'd better get your shit packed right the fuck now" or something like that. They asked me if I'd physically tried to restrain her from leaving, so I assume there was something she said that made them have to ask that.

Another thing they said, during the whole dressing-down: apparently if you invite a friend over for the night and they bring pizza, they've contributed to the household and if you want them gone you have to evict them. Dafuq? Seriously? So I officially live everywhere I've ever visited and brought food, apparently. I'm still pretty pissed off about this whole situation.

Yeah, property rights can be pretty messed up. I remember a case in detroit where a women had to live with a squatter:

So the moral of the story is, quit being nice to people, and trust no one.

People are dicks, after all.

(Seriously, you have my sympathies.)

I just don't understand how a person can be that rude, inconsiderate, disrespectful, and just plain ungrateful when someone picks them up off the street and tries to get them back on their feet.

The reason why I do this is because a couple of decades ago, when I was younger (dumber is arguable), I decided on the spur of the moment to quit my job and move up to Washington via greyhound. I ended up on the streets in Olympia, and it took me a month or two to bootstrap myself up to a leaky 12 foot travel trailer with the equivalent plumbing of a chamberpot. I wish that I had found someone then like the person I am today; and my philosophy is that if you never pay it forward then how can you ever expect to get it back?

So I do what I can when I can, whether that's tithe to the church, donate food to food drives, give food to people begging on the side of the road (never cash though), and when I have the space available - which I usually do - adopt a stray. All things considered, I've adopted over 20 homeless and gotten them back up on their feet over the past 5 years, so I should be surprised that this is the first one that's turned rotten on me.

I'm more concerned about when she dives back down before, will she show up at your doorstep expecting (demanding?) you to help her again.

I don't think she'll be back. She's got a greyhound ticket waiting at St. Vincent de Paul's to go back to Indiana, and good riddance.

There are times in every relationship, when you are absolutely frustrated, furious, pissed, etc... with your significant other. I'm at that point right now with my wife. It's times like this I wonder how in the fuck we have been together for the better part of 16 years, and married for 10.

And when I try to express my frustration, I know it will be an argument, and excuses, and blah blah blah. And when I just try and get some time to myself, then it's what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong what's wrong

until I finally say something.

Maybe, once the kids are in bed, I'm just going to get drunk as shit and pass out. Stress from trying to buy a house, stress from petty bullshit with friends (we have friends going through a divorce, and my wife and I have differing opinions), stress about work, and going back to school, and well.. just being an adult. And then on top of that, I get an FB message while I'm at work, complaining because my teenage son wants pizza, but because his license is suspended, can't drive himself, and the other two kids want pizza as well, and she just CBA to drive the 8 minutes round trip to the pizza shop.

Sorry, I'm just venting, and figured I wouldn't clog up the general frustrations with a relationship frustration. Let this be a lesson to people. 10 years of marriage, and a happy marriage, does not mean there wont be days that you don't want to just scream at the other person and say "WHAT THE HOLY FUCK IS YOUR GODDAMN PROBLEM"

Oh, I doubt it will wreck things for everyone else, especially since during the summer with the weather here being so deadly*. I'm getting a temporary paying roommate in until the stench washes out of my nostrils, though, but as soon as he moves on I'll be right back to adopting strays. Hopefully with a bit better of a plan this time, like maybe having them sign a roommate release before letting them unpack their bags/boxes/whatever in the spare bedroom. That way all I have to do is sign and date it, then if I have to 86 them they won't be able to claim squatter's rights or "contribution to the household".

I'm also considering catching those cops at the VFW and buying them a beer. Then giving them their turn at being on the receiving end of a royal ass-chewing.

* Not to reopen the whole can of weather worms, but we already had our first case of heat stroke for this year. 4 days ago (day before Valentine's Day, if you're counting-impaired). It was only 90 degrees out, but still doesn't bode well for the heat this summer. It's only going to get hotter from here.

So finally managed to have a talk... though not through ideal means (we were chatting via mIRC at work.) Apparently he's with another guy (I don't consider it cheating, as I don't even know what we were before.) We're maintaining a friendship and we'll see how things go in the future.

However, it does hurt a little that he wasn't able to give me some sort of hint that "we" weren't really a thing anymore. Would have been nice (and I told him as much.) Guess that means my fb status will remain "single."

My father got rushed to a hospital this weekend with colonic bleeding.

Turns out he's got a massive tumor up there and the doctor is about 85% sure it's malignant. :(

Massive "Ouch". Best of luck. Does he still have a SO?

He's been living all alone for the last 15 years.

The biopsy results won't be in for another week, but they did a scan on him today and found metastatic growth in his lungs. :(
