We have two uber-important rules in our house.
1- Keep the back door locked at all times.
2- Put the toilet lid down.
These simple, but important, rules are written in stone. Hell, they are even written down in the above-said places. These rules are put in place for the safety of Miss Roo.
The back door is simple, b/c we don't want her wandering into the backyard where our pool is. The toilet lid is another simple one. We do not want her to get curious and fall in.
As you know, my husband's brother lives with us. When he moved in, we set the rules for him. He agreed to these rules and promised to pass them on to his friends, who are constantly in and out of the house.
Lately, the toilet lid is always up... ALWAYS (just picture me growling in frustration right now). So I put a sign up that states: PLEASE put the toilet lid down. I have a child that could fall in and we don't want that.
Word for word, that's exactly what the sign says. It's conveniently placed right above the toilet so any fool that walks in the bathroom can read it.
Apparently, my brother-in-laws friends can't read... and he is just a effin' idiot.
So I complain and then I complain to my husband who speaks to his brother.
His brother goes off on him, yelling and arguing with him that my daughter's head is too big to fit through the toilet... and (god forbid) if her noggin fits that her shoulder would stop her from falling in.
I'm going to pause here and let those words sink in.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
Oh, I get it. Her big fat head will prevent her from drowning in the toilet and sheesh, if her head doesn't stop her, her footballer shoulders will.
You freaking idiot!
I literally could smack him. I literally could pounce on him and pound the crap on him for saying that. I didn't know I was related to such cavemen!
My brother-in-law is just lazy... too lazy to help me out and put the toilet lid down.
Can you understand my frustration?
