Three and half people Walking Up the Street


Picture this: The time is about 3:30pm and you are looking down our street. The back drop is a cluster of McMansions.

Walking up the street are three people walking. Two of the people walking are male. The one trying to keep up is a pregnant female. The two males are talking busily. They pay no attention to the pregnant female struggling to keep up. She gives up and falls back where a good distance is between her and the two males.

One of the males looks to be twice the size of the other male. Ahhh – Now they are closer and they are recognizable. The small one that looks much like Cheech when Cheech was part of the Cheech and Chong duo, is Bob. The bigger one is his lug of a son, Joe. They are fussing about something.

I suspect their car broke down on the way someplace, like their autos often do, and they are blaming each other for the break down.

Because Joe is home schooled by Professor Bob (phd-Hard Knocks) you can give Bob credit for everything trick Joe knows. One of the tricks is to always blame someone else. So whatever went wrong it looks like Joe was blaming Bob and Bob was blaming Joe. It is kind of like the Master and the Grasshopper having a face-off.

A unrelated story about Joe is that he has approached at least one man in the neighborhood and apologized for all the trouble he caused him. When I heard this, I thought he is one of the Anonymous 12 step programs that you have to make amends to whomever you caused harm. He has caused us some problems throughout the years but he didn’t apologize to us (further proof I am either invisible or ignored).

Back to them walking up the street: And what makes it worse is that they had no cell phone to call to get a ride or auto help. Bob’s ex-wife Anne took up their cell phones, including Melissa’s, who is away at college. Why did she take up all the cell phones? Because Joe ran up a $1500 bill.

No cell phone? Life can be a living Hell!

Judy,
When Anne was telling my neighbor about it,she said she hated to do that because they are "a loving family."
Black it is. I hope Maxwell House is ok.

Mmm... Maxwell House works for me, too. Mind if I bring a little somethin' "extra" for it though? Just a wee drop o' Jack Daniels to "perk" us up a bit, eh.

Who was the preggers girl though? Joe's Lady? If so, I'm bettin' the poor kid's gonna get t' know all 'bout "living hells"...

{sigh}

Michael,
Yeah, a little Jack to sweeten that black coffee would be great.
Yes, Joe is the father-to-be. His "old lady" is age 20 and Joe is 16.
That is statutory rape isn't it?

God, that woman will be better off in prison than with him. I hope she is charged and convicted.

Yours in Christ,
