Uh Oh - Part 2



I was appropriately and sincerely contrite. I briefly explained the problem without too many details. Himself was clearly not pleased with my gift card news, but he did accept my suggested solution. Since the main problem concerned two grocery store gift cards for my two collegians (for emergency rations, of course), my suggestion to him was that we use those cards for our own grocery needs. Simply put, we have prepaid for some of our groceries. The rest of the gift cards I will reimburse him for with my paycheck this Friday. At some point I will get the gift cards with the correct amount... but I will wait for a bit.

I think I am safe until he sees the total bill.

You may want to buy him a hat with a chin strap. He can't flip his lid if it's tied down right?

I think that's a great solution! It's money you will spend anyway, you've just "earmarked it" now.

You mean bladder weakness did not make him feel sorry for you?? Jeez......

Again I say, simply remind him of how fortunate he is to be living with you, and that it's a great idea to prepay for groceries before the holidays.

What a weird deal.

Well, good thing it all turned out OK!

I hope you're alright!! No updates makes me worry you've ended up stuffed inside a refrigerator at the market!

I am fine. I will be posting either late tonight or sometime tomorrow. It has been a hectic week with some very long hours!
