    The song says we have our own funny moods.:couple:
    I know I have mine
    They are not as bad as you.:qqb010:

    The way you wait
    Until the last moment left

    You spring a big project on me
    So I have no time to reject

    I find when I accept it
    The way you choose to do

    We don't don't come out fully on top
    So am I to blame
    Or is it you
    For the short end of the deal we get
    The unfinished business of the situation,
    The we didn't get the best we could have got:?:

    As long as we have been together,
    We can fix this if you want.
    I am willing, I Haven't heard you giving
    Me the you on board in the slot.
    So whats the deal:?:
    You don't care how I feel,
    You get some or all you want.
    By last minute plans,
    Financing the hand
    Of my money and your's into the pot.
    I tell you what this is what I'll do:bye:
    walk away from you
    Because you don't know me at all!:eek:hmy:

    I just wanna jump up and down on this one!

    I SO feel you!

    People just don't seem to understand that "poor planning and preparation on YOUR part does not make an EMERGENCY on MY part!"

    Now, yes, unexpected things come up but just because YOU mucked up or waited til the last minute, don't mean I'm supposed to JUMP cuz NOW you're in a bind or mess that YOU got yourself into!

    Whew! Hodee, I'm standing WITH YOU my brotha!

    This sounds like a conversation had in so many homes
    so many relationships.
    Nicely done.

    That can be so true thatgirl
    This has happened in my home.
    In a personal relationship this type of situation is very wrong.

    At my job they have a habit of giving me assignments at 5PM
    that are due at nine AM. So I have to stay all night.
    They leave at 6PM and come back at 9AM while
    I am stuck all night with a can of soup.
    This has happened so much I am prepared
    with clothes and shaving kit and stuff.

    I do get a two seater sofa I have to curl up on at 3AM.
    I live 60 miles away from my job.
    I catch a train everyday and the last train leaves at 5:35PM for home.
    See so they disrespect me.
    When my wife does it
    She disrespects me too.

    My son used to do it for years with his reports and school work.
    He starts it at 9PM, needs to go to bed and
    I stay up researching additional material, writing the report and he gets the "A"
    My daughther isn't as bad but she has traits.

    I call it firefighting because that is the mode
    You have to go into to accomplish the task.

    I was gonna quit my job in 2008, but the chance of fortune
    Keeps reminding me to stick it out.
    This could be the last 9 to 5 if it works out.
    So I need to be here two more years to be fully vested.

    After that.. I am going to :run:to seven eleven
    For milk and never return ...can u say FIGI:haha:

    One of those situations where you shouldn't have to be in another's shoes to see the damage, but it would be an awfully good lesson if that could be possible. I hear ya brother poet.
