Sat was all planned out - shopping hell & Return of the King.

So while at the bank my cell rings. Its Bug. Can we drop everything and come running because their computer will not let them get online and Bean MUST get online NOW. And J-Bro was no help.

I told her that J-Bro was useless and gave her the example of when he shut down KK's comp trying to load something he knew her comp didn't have the room to hold and then saying "Sorry, KK, tough loss." Then leaving her without a comp because he couldn't be bothered to fix it.

bigstan to the rescue for KK. Love my hubby. KK's comp is as good as new.

Hubby even pulled a hard drive out of thin air for Mamaw's computer he put together for her.

I let hubby explain to BIL why we couldn't come over now. BIL attempted to force us to come over now. He whined, he complained, he begged, he pleaded, he bitched, he moaned, he lamented, he tried to pull the "kids need it" tactic.

Hubby explained to BIL patiently - as he was about to lose it all over BIL if he didn't keep his head - that we would not be coming over at all this past weekend and that I would call Bug to tell her when we could.

Hubby attempted to walk BIL through fixing it himself but BIL said that if he touched the comp he was likely to toss it out the window.

BIL has the patience of a newborn. He also has the attention span of a 2 year old. POING!

So hubby gave up on that angle.

As hubby has no school this week I suggested we go over tonight and had hubby call Bug to tell her this.

Because we could not come over right then, BIL went immediately and purchased a computer for $900 after tax. He said it was on sale.

Isn't this the man who complained that they did not have enough money to do things, buy things. Isn't this the man who said his kids were going to have a skimpy Christmas because daddy was poor.

Um, yes, I believe it is.

When I heard this I got on the phone with Bug and went off. Not on her, on the stupidity of her husband. I went off for quite some time. Then I told her to put him on the phone. She refused because she knew that I was in foul mood and I would rip him to shreads. I told her that wouldn't stop me when I SAW him from ripping him to shreads.

The level of stupidity that this man possesses astounds me.

J-Bro revisited.

Dont you see
BIL is only willing to spend the money, time attention when it suits him and fufills his needs.

J-bro -in-law is right!

Re: Dont you see
He is the king of must have it and must have it NOW. There is no patience. Those girls run the house, not the adults. He did it because Bean wanted on line right that moment in time.

He could have saved himself $900 if he had some patience. But NOOOOOO.
