A funny story

Here is a short story I just must pass on. I normally don't talk about my family to much on here just maybe some thing like the dinner we went to the other night but this is funny to me and I hope you can get a chuckle out of it to.

My parents have left town for the winter as they do every winter. They left last Thursday, On Saturday they called and asked if I would go over and shut the water valve off under the kitchen sink and pick up some food items they forgot to give me before they left. No big deal and they would sleep better knowing that the water valve was off so when they went to have the water turned back on it would not leak. So I did and I called them as I was leaving to let then know it was all taken care of. End of story right?.... Wrong.

Monday Morning my phone rings its my mother. And she says "I'm having an argument with your father and need your help" Okay for those of you who don't know my mom and dad they don't argue dad is smart he just gives in. So I chuckle a bit and ask what I could do to resolve this "Argument" She then asks me to go back to her house and measure her love seat?. I'm like "um why do you want me to do that?". She then tells me that they are talking about switching the one in the couch for the one in the house and that dad thinks its to tall and will block the window. So I go all the way over there and do this and call with the results. Mom is happy she won, they can now switch them out.

Here is the funny part. I had to go over and do this in November.... They will not be home in tell April to do the switch.............

But you settled an argument..and if you didn't do it now, they would have been bickering about it all winter!

You probably just made your Dad a happy man whether he won the argument or not.

That's such a cute story, I think if my parents called me to do that I would have gone over eventually not so soon!

So your saying that I shouldn't sweat anything in life, I like the way you think. I don't think I should either!

Also wehat kind of non-profit do you work for?
