When I was a kid, my dad broke his leg and was unable to work. My mom had a minimum wage job that barely paid the house payment let alone put food on the table or our school lunches. My parents were too proud to ask for help. We lived in the town my dad had grown up in and my brother's 4th grade teacher had taught my dad. My brother got to telling her how we were low on wood for the furnace and didn't have any money for lunch. One day, her husband showed up with an entire dump truck full of wood and unloaded it into our back yard. He and his buddies from town had cut it all for us. The next week, we each had enough lunch tickets at school to last the rest of the year (courtesy of the teacher). Word got around. Food showed up on our porch, the local police would call every time a deer got hit and the person didn't want the meat. We were taken care of by a very caring community.

@jkostiw You always have the right to not accept an invitation. It would be more respectful to decline than to be an ass about it by being late.

I grew up with a chronically late mother. I would have to wait for HOURS for her to pick me up from practice, would always be dropped off at the last minute for concerts, games, etc. At times other kids' parents would take me home and call my parents to let them know where I was when they finally got around to getting me. With my own children, I'm never late. We are always at least 15 minutes early.

I see it as a lack of respect to be late for a time commitment whether that is a professional appointment or a friendly lunch date. If I've made time to make this commitment to you, then I expect the same in return.

I have 4 sons. They and my husband fart on each other all the time. My youngest is now 5 but has been farting on everyone else since he was about 3. Farts are funny. I don't know why, but they are :)

The first time I had my Harley out on the street, I stalled it 4...yes I said 4 times at the first stop sign. I was almost in tears by the time I got it going. The d-bag behind me honking his horn didn't help. lol And then there was the time I went to swing my leg over to get off the bike only to have my pants leg catch on the peg. It leaned too far over, and I couldn't stop it so I tried let it fall as softly as it could. The neighbor was outside and watched the whole thing. He helped me pick it up with his 1 good arm as the other was in a cast while promising not to tell my husband. I told him anyway :)

Geeks are sexy. Plain and simple. I played with the pretty boy and the hot bad boy, but married the quiet guy with glasses and I couldn't be happier!
