The whole truth and nothing but the truth about my husband, his parents, and me - That Woman.
Saturday, March 5, 2016
In which I am getting even angrier at Sly and Doris for leaving their affairs in such disorder - if you love your children, get your act together and throw away your 40-year old papers so they do not have to spend weeks sorting through your junk. Don't be an asshole
Primo I am planning the driving trip. Do you have anything going on November 17 or 18? I am not sure yet about exactly when to leave. It would be nice if you could drop me at the airport to pick up a car (in this case, cheaper than the Hertz place in [the place on your way to work]). I could take the bus there, but that would be a pain. In the worst case, I guess I could take the bus there, drive home and pack the car, and then leave. (I would not want to carry everything with me.)
Primo I just talked to my mom's cousin about visiting her.
Primo She asked whether you would be with me. I don't think my parents caused her to have a bad impression of you.
Primo Now is a good time for me to discuss plans for the trip.
Me I could drop you at the place on my way to to work
Me Tell your mom's cousin I am working and cannot take vacation - that my vacation is really limited
Primo I know, sweetie.
Primo [the place on your way to work] is much more expensive than the airport, oddly.
Me OK - but how much inconvenience are we expected to endure
Primo So maybe you could go out of your way on the way to work?
Me to save the estate a few dollars?
Me or maybe the estate could pay a little more so it's easier for us
Me and for me
Primo Picking up at the airport also benefits me because they have an area where I can choose a car (instead of just having to accept whatever they give me).
Me then it will need to be after work
Primo You couldn't go there on your way to work?
Me it would mean leaving the house at the crack of dawn
Me which you would not like
Me I have 8 a.m meetings those days that I cannot miss
Primo You couldn't get in to work just a bit later than usual? (20 minutes?)
Primo Oh, every day?
Me no - I cannot miss these meetings
Me it is the quarterly reviews
Me I have to be ther
Me Laverne is all lovey
Me she sat on me and purred while I was watching tov
Primo Every day at 8 for how long?
Primo She loves you.
Me and she followed me upstairs and is sitting by me rubbing her head on me
Me 17th for sure
Me we can go after work
Primo And if you have an 8:00 meeting, you don't want to be walking into the building at 7:50.
Me And I do not want to deal with you having to meet a scheduled
Me and the morning traffic
Primo Because I don't do it right.
Me I just don't want to do it, sweetie
Me it is too hard on me
Primo It is a hardship to have only one car.
Me it is a hardship for you to be the executor of this estate
Me it is a real hardship
Me and you are suffering because of it
Primo Maybe we can pick up the car on Tuesday, the 17th after you get home?
Two weeks before our wedding, my husband's parents called to tell him 1. they weren't coming and 2. he shouldn't marry me. Since then, I have gotten along with them about as well as you might think. PS They died hating me and disinherited my husband. PPS None of this is made up.
And now, Primo is running for state-level public office for the November 2018 election. And - it's not fun. For either of us.
