Re: ***Julying Piece of Crap LC Thread***

they'll probably have iced tea and make small talk. maybe give your parents a call an hour into the ordeal, if they're still even there... if it's uncomfortable tell'em yourself that your parents are embarrassed about pre-arranged plans and having to leave, then ask them to leave.

That cousin story is a perfect example of why you never answer the phone when you don't recognize the number.

Families do stupid **** like that though. Maybe tie the dog up on the roof.

Tell mom to pile all her crap into the guest room so it's inhospitable and tell the cousin to learn to speak english if they want to spend the night.

Just hope they don't need to borrow the car because they'll surely scratch it and refuse to admit what happened.

Some of my in-laws do crap like that, but even they are not that inconsiderate.

A bunch. But only a few I speak to. And to be clear, they do this to each other with little thought. None have attempted to do it with us.

I'd be fine with close family dropping in -- siblings, parents, close and known aunts uncles and first cousins. But people I haven't seen for twenty years? Hell no.

G,
Parents should research hotel/motels just in case. And not be afraid to insist.
On the other hand, a sandwich, bowl of soup, or ice tea are only hospitable.

Didn't Howard Beale do an Augustus Caesar Salad Days title one time? Maybe I dreamed it.

Specifically this one I remember, because this falls into the 1% of wordplays that are actually funny.

Also I remember a time that Dids made the LC thread and used the title to wish Happy Birthday to himself, and then another mod changed the title to something mocking and Dids flipped out about it. That was a number of years ago though, and when I looked for it I couldn't find it.

When you see them pull up, make loud disgusting humping noises until they retch and go away.

Re: ***Julying Piece of Crap LC Thread***

Greg, I would have which ever parent that didn't talk to them call back and say "my spouse didn't make it clear whether you, your wife, kids, and the dog planned to spend the night". If by some crazy notion they did plan to spend the night, then tell them, "sorry we are leaving town early the next morning".
Then tell 'em to check back in with you in 20 years...

Re: ***Julying Piece of Crap LC Thread***

I think I might have tried an August LC title that was also the title of a Wallace Stevens poem, which went over just about as well as expected.
