It could be worse, she could live with you.
I promised my wife when we got married that I would take care of her mother when the
time came. Like selling your soul to the devil, it doesn't seem like a big deal when you do it, until it comes time to pay up. Biggest mistake I ever made. Little did I know at the time, it was because none of her other kids were going to do it. I'm not one to hang out in bars, but man it's hard to go home some days.

That means you said she is like her mother so she is now preparing a poison and a suitcase with small bills.

Excellent news, I'm going to have a water heater replacement in the afternoon on the second call on monday. She said she has someone else. GREAT!

I just learned the neighbor's wife told her husband to stop doing free handyman jobs for her.

Thinking back when I started out and needed money she got the neighbor to do the dishwasher install for free instead of hiring me but the kicker the very same week she spent 5 thousand dollars on lawn sprinklers!!!

Thank goodness I'm off the hook.

a large pillow to smother is a viable option...just like sending vito in to " take care of someone"...that statement has several outcomes....

That sucks..
I was painting(I hate painting - esp for free, in the summer where there was no A/C) some rooms for my daughters grandmother, years ago. I got some paint on the base of the ceiling fan, and she lost it on me, I just put the brush down and Walked away that started a 2 year period where we didn’t talk.

My aunt is a piece of work, she bought a house about 15 years ago and wanted a water ran to her fridge. Apparently the guy she called gave her a crazy price and said it was a tough job. I told her it was simple, there is a Vanity backing on to the same wall, and I’ll do it next time I’m there, she told me
“no, it’s way too complicated for you”..
Well fcuk her..
-about 5 years ago I found out the guy Drilled and ran 1/4” poly tube into the duct work, and cut a (sharp) hole in the furnace room. over time the poly tube rubbed On the cut and sprung a pretty good leak while She was away on some fancy cruise, she came home to about 5-10k in basement damage, and lost a lot of irreplaceable photos, and family stuff...

Hahaha.
Now she wants me to fix things, and I refuse and say I don’t work for friends and family.
