Over the year I have note a few things that will bring up a big debate and sometimes an argument. Just post something in a NG about politics or religion you have a thread that will run three times or more than any other in the newsgroup. Also I have been eating at work in the past and have to leave the lunch room to find a peaceful place to eat after somebody started to talk about one of these subjects. So why am I posting this in my Blog.
Well something happen to me in my family this weekend. In order to not to make this a partisan view. I will be careful how I tell this story. I asked my Father for a sign of one party for my yard about two months ago. He told me he could get me one. So two day ago I got a call from my mother telling me ‘’ that your father has you a sign that is 8 ft long and if you put it in your yard I will never come back to visit you again’’. I said “I told him I wanted one”. My mother told me “listen you heard what I saided and you tell him not to put it up”. I laughed and she hung up the phone, then I realized that she was very serious.
Well I love my mother and I am paying for this house I live in. So I feel like I can do what I want in my yard. I am not trying to disrespect her but, it is my choose to put up this sign. So I decide I would put it up. Well my father brought the sign knowing what my mother had told me and when I told him to go ahead and put it up. It was like I had voted for him for president. , he spark up and ran out there. He had that sign up in no time and he is about 80 years old.
Well I called my mother and asked her what the problem with the sign was, that if you and dad have a problem, don’t get me in the middle of it. I wanted that sign a long time ago. She ask me “Did you have him put it up” and I said “yes“. My mother said “you know the deal then *click*”.
I have not talked to her since the sign has been up in my yard and she would call me every day. Geez, I think it would have be better to post my views in a NG next time. Sure am glad that this only comes every 4 years. November 2nd will be here soon and I can take it down. Then I think I will put in my sons room so she will not go in there. I kind of scared to talk about Religion now.
