    Angry A Simple Thank You

    Uggghhhh.....

    I dont know why this bothers me so much

    When someone does something nice, spends extra, extra thought and effort, you think that a thank you would be something that comes out of the other persons mouth.....

    I am not asking for anything, just a Thank You, something to acknowledge the dead

    (here is the skinny)

    I have been ill, but I know my wife has not had a day to sleep in for a while etc. So I sleep on the couch because Wyatt had surgery this week and has not been sleeping well, so I can man teh kids so she can sleep in peace. Then I get up with them in the morning so she can continue to sleep. I have to wake her at 9 because we have to go to my Ma's for Christmas. I make her French Toast, pure maple syrup, Fresh Squeezed OJ (That sucks to do), etc etc.

    So I wake her, she sees the spread and this is what I get (Oh Dan, I have to get in the shower) that is it. What the hell, why cant you say "Thank You, it looks good" or something......


    Ugh
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    "The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed'."

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    Awww, that was very kind of you to do that. Your wife may have been grateful but just too tired to remember to thank you.

    That was an incredibly thoughtful thing for you to do. I'm sure she appreciated it even though she didn't say anything. A "thank you" does goes a long way, though, doesn't it?

    I hope that your son is recovering well.

    A "thank you" would have been nice indeed.

    say shoe - buddy, come make me breakfast, i'll let ya have the bed

    seriously tho - talk with her about it, explain that you know it was probably appreciated... but some "verbal assurance" would've been nice to have (new term the wifey taught me last week)

    I didn't know that the dead needed to be acknowledged. You are still with us, right?

    (well sometimes they do, but I think I'll shut up now before someone acknowledges my death.)

    Throughout my life I have learned that it is better to give than to receive, but I agree that some of that "verbal assurance" is needed to show that someone is grateful for your kind act.

    I agree, talk to her about it. Maybe she was too tired and it slipped her mind.

    Thank You's do go a long way. I hate being taken for granted.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    I let it go today because we had to go to X-Mas at my moms and other things needed to get done, not worth starting an arguement.

    I did notice after I did my post that she took the time to atleast eat a good portion of the breakfast which made me a little happy that even though she was apparently busy, she still took a few minutes to eat what I made her.
