    My mother-in-law works for NOAA. She has nothing to do, so she is driving here to stay with us, without prior notification, for as long as she wants. I don't mind scheduled visits, but this is not a scheduled visit.

    This sucks.

    Use the force Yoda...plant in her mind that you are not the family she is looking for.

    Other than that, big project at work, can't be home much, and jeesh, timing worked out good, mom-in-law, you can help with the family and things around the house, like cleaning bathrooms, and stuff.

    If I catch her pinching my stash, I will cut off her hand.

    Is she good looking? I could take her off your hands. At least for a night.

    I can only imagine your pain...

    And thankfully, I only have to imagine it. Sucks to suck.

    The thing I'm most amazed at about that picture is there's a website called memegeneokerlund.com

    besides the people I know who aren't getting a paycheck this is the first case of shutdown outrage I actually believe is real.

    Things like this make me think back to the advise my great grandpa gave me. It's Reagan's fault just like the potholes in the road are.

    How much money are we saving on a gov't shutdown, if we are paying all these people for not working. If we are going to pay them, make them work!

    Problem solved then! You in jail and her in hospital. The big question is: Who does your wife visit?

    Saving no money since congress already agreed to give them all back pay - so an unplanned paid vacation. It is costing our economy 160 Million/day though.
