I love Mrs. Rastahomie dearly, and I hope that any of you who see this don’t mention this thread to her at Spiffle II. However, The Pit is the place for ranting, and I gotta get this off my chest.
Mrs. Rastahomie talks all the freaking time. Do any of you people have any idea of what it’s like to be married to a person who never stops talking?
Here’s a bit of our conversation before work Friday morning. FTR, I was trying to read the SDMB at the time.
HER: Will you please take these 3 rolls of film to Meijer and get them developed?
— By all accounts, the conversation should have ended here. But read on…
HER: I want you to do it TODAY.
ME (Slightly miffed): I said I would do it today.
HER: I know. It’s just really important that I get them back today.
ME: OKAY!!! :mad:
HER: They’re going in the album I’m working on.
HER: These aren’t the ones from Mardi Gras.
HER: They’re from Thanksgiving and Christmas.
HER: Do you mind not doing the Mardi Gras ones right away?
ME: No, that’s fine.
HER: These are from Thanksgiving and Christmas.
ME: I remember.
HER: …When we went to Viburnum [her hometown].
ME: Yes, I was there.
HER: There’s some really cute ones of [various children in her family].
HER: So I’d really like to get these developed today.
HER: We should do the 1-Hour developing so we can get them back today.
HER: 1-Hour developing at Meijer doesn’t cost that much.
HER: We’ll do these today and the ones from Mardi Gras later.
HER: The ones from Mardi Gras are here on my desk.
HER: I think we should develop these first, since they’ve been sitting around longer.
HER: Unless we have the money to do the Mardi Gras ones today, too.
ME: No we probably don’t.
HER: OK, then we’ll just do these for now.
HER: We’ll develop the ones from Mardi Gras next paycheck.
HER: So can you take them in and get it done today?
ME: Yes, I said that before. :mad:
HER: It’s really important that I get these back today, because they’ve been sitting around for a long time.
ME: Again, I said I would do it today :mad:.
HER: Well you don’t have to get mad about it! Jeez!
HER: So, you’re taking them to the 1-Hour developing, right?
ME: :mad: Yes, the 1-Hour developing :mad:!
HER: At Meijer?
HER: And you’ll do it today?
We continued in this vein for the better part of 15 minutes.
Just about every conversation we have follows some sort of this pattern.
But I love Mrs. Rastahomie dearly
