Free weekends are a rare treasure to the parents of teens. Between sports
events, school activities or that needed ride to meet up with friends
little time is left for the poor and tired parent. This particular weekend
started off with the "Drive One For Your School" event to help raise money
for the DECA program. It would be over for us by 10 AM so the rest of the
weekend would be all mine. Well the wife drove a few cars but she didn't
see the car she wanted to drive last year but couldn't. It was a Ford
Edge. She likes SUV's but wanted something a bit smaller without moving
into a car. I said we could stop by the Ford dealer on the way home. How
long could this take after all. She hates car shopping and doesn't really
want to spend the money on another new car so we should be out by the time
she see's the first sticker price. About 30 minutes later we were on our
way and without the $28k used 2010 Ford Edge that they had on the lot. The
rest of the weekend would be all mine............or so I thought.



Seems a Ford dealer 2 hours and 1 state away had just the car she wanted so
we set off on our little jaunt. We got home around 10pm with no new car
but we were going back Monday after we talked to our bank about a loan on a
Lincoln MKX. My weekend half gone and my money about to be spent I went to
bed with the knowledge that Sunday would be all mine............or so I thought.

Sunday morning comes and I have fed the kids, took care of the cows and
prepare to go to the city for a little guy stuff shopping. Then the phone
rings. It is around 11 AM (yep, I slept in) and one of my tenants had their
key stuck in the door. Off we go into town. What should be a 15 minute
drive turns into a 25 minute wait fest as the road crews have shut down 5
miles of road for resurfacing. We arrive to find the poor lady standing by
her dangling keys with a look of apologetic sadness on her face. I got my
pliers and walked up to the door. It was securely locked but the keys
wouldn't budge. I turned them a half turn counter clockwise and they slid
right out. She started to apologize and I told her not to worry about it.
How could I get mad at her for her ignorance? She complains about nothing
and pays her rent on time. I wish I had family that was so good to me.
Since we were in town the wife decided she wanted to eat lunch so off we
went to waste more money. By the time lunch, her coffee and a quick trip
to the local bookstore was over it was 3pm. Now I finally had my chance to
head to the city. I stop to get gas and as I got back into the truck the
wife was getting off the phone with her mom. Seems Nana has to take her
sons kids back to their mother and the meeting place is my house. I don't
have a real big issue with the brother-in-laws ex-tramp as I don't really
see here but her current hubby is a dead beat KC gangsta wannabe and he
usually travels "wiff his ho". I have no way of contacting them to say
stay away and the mother-in-law isn't about to call and tell them the drop
off will be somewhere else so I had to cancel my trip to the city so I can
meet with the Thug of the Year and we can have a chat about what I consider
trespassing and my views on the use of deadly force.

It's 5:30 and no Ma-N-Law. Then the phone rings. "This should be good" I
thought to myself. Seems the little Jeep Liberty that Nana drives threw the
belt. She was stuck about 70 miles from our house. Since the wife knows
nothing about cars she gave me the phone. I of course asked exactly what
happened and she started her little story. Seems that her car was making a
noise when she started it up and had her son look at it. He told her the
fan belt was looking like it needed replaced but s he could make it to my
house no problem. I stopped her right there and said "That was your first
mistake, you listened to him". She ignored me and continued. She drove
about 10 miles and it got worse so she calls knucklehead back and he
assures her it would be better to keep going rather than come back. Another
20 miles and the belt let go. Now she is on the off ramp of I-70 with
several screaming brats and no one to help her. My in-laws are all very
loud talkers and the wife has heard the entire conversation. She is
freaking out and tries to call her sister to see if they can take the car
trailer and get her back here. Of course no one answered and she looks at
me and says "Why does she never answer the phone?" I said "Because she is
smarter than you" then turned my attention back to Nana and her dilemma. I
told her to hang tight and I will be there in about an hour and a half. Off
I go to the parts store to buy a new belt then the wife and I are on our
way to save the day. It is dark by the time we get there and I pull up
behind her then get out and popped the hood. Sure enough the belt broke and
it took out an A/C line. As I get my stuff together to start replacing it a
set of headlights come up on us.

It's the B-I-L in a Dodge Avenger (I
really don't understand this families obsession with MoPars). I look at
the wife and ask "So when did he get that little jewel?" The mother-in-law
said "He did hit 2 week drill and used the money to buy it". I said "He
should have paid me back a SMALL portion of what he owes me". She said
"Well he needs a car for work." "Oh really?" "And what exactly does he do
for a living now?" I asked. "Well he's still looking.............." I went back
to work because I really had no interest in that conversation any more. The
B-I-L came up and started to help. I of course decided to engage him in
conversation but he wasn't in a talking mood. Not sure why because I
thought I had some great topics like........



Whose name is on this title?

If you have a car why can't you take your kids back?

You still owe me money.

Hey, I hear they are looking for Christian missionaries to go to Iran. I'll
pay for your flight.



None of these seemed to perk his interest. Odd. Anyway, we got the Liberty
up and running and Nana was off to meet the momma of some of the B-I-L's
kids at a truck stop (probably the one he meet his current wife at) for the
exchange. After all that I went through I told her it would not be at my
house. The next day Nana asked how much I thought it would cost to get the
A/C fixed. I said IDK but I'm now officially broke. "Ohhhhhhh I wouldn't
ask you to pay for it" she said. Uhhhhhhhhh Yes you will.

Default Good Read!

He does write well, and he puts you right there along side him.

So the story came to me in bits but from what I gathered the brother-in-law and 2 friends were out driving and went off the road and wrecked. I was told the truck landed on the roof and the cab was under water. The driver trapped, my brother-in-law risked life and limb to get him out and save him.


Then the details began to fill in. They had finished off a case of beer (driver claims he didn't drink) and said to themselves "Hey, I wonder if we can go up that hill?" Well the answer to that question was NO! After sliding back a bit the truck went sideways then began flipping. The B-I-L called mommy and she took him to the hospital where they determined that he was positive for manic stupidity. The other 2 stooges decided to walk home and go to bed. Odd how the driver didn't want to get checked out. As for the saving of the driver drowning in water........................It was about enough to get the armrest wet.
