Saturday afternoon after I worked for my dad my wife calls me to tell me she's at her brothers new house and wanted me to go there instead of home. After working all day I didn't feel like getting stuck moving anybody, and her brothers have never been willing to help us out for that, but she assured me it was just to hang out.
I get there and My wife said they moved a dresser in my suv. I'm like ok and ask if they put something down so they didn't rip or sirty up or stain my carpeting. Of course they said no but nothing happened. I went out there to put a blanket down I had in the trunk of my other car cause he had a couple of more things to move and BAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. There was rust colored crap all over the interior and the fasteners that hold the seat were pulled out.
I was livid......and admittedly a bit rough on the wife, had to apologize for flying off the handle later. Man I was sooooo pissed. I remember the last time he moved from college when I went up there for his graduation and found him loading my truck with his things. Then when we got back to his parents house he left a message to drop all his stuff off in his room there cause he was gonna stay at school to party a couple more days. So I got stuck moving a truckload full of stuff for him. Then his brother trashed his grandma's 2 flat and my brother and I went up there and threw all his stuff out so my wife and I could move in when we got married and fix all he trashed. Guess the brother that trashed the place or any other family members didn't show up to help then either.
So again I'm livid and tired of being taken advantage of. I demanded my wife drop everything and bring the truck home. Turns out the rust colored stuff was dust from the wood stained dresser and some of it worked it's way into the carpet pretty good. I spent the afternoon scrubbing it with stain removers. It came out but I'm hoping all the stain remover didn't discolor anything.
Anyway, to sum things up I'm pretty sure my wifes family thinks I'm the jerk cause of the way I acted and just left like that. I really don't care cause her brothers have never been there for us and we seem to do nothing but bail them out of jams all the time. They are family though so my wife is pretty upset. It's a big dilema for me though. I don't really want to apologize for the way I acted cause IMO, and what I told my wife, There were 5 bachelor degrees a masters and a doctrine degree in the room while they were moving a dirty old dresser and not one of these peopel were smart enough to put something down so my truck doesn't get ruined.
Maybe, I'm not very forgiving of stupidity like this but I can't find any excuse for it. Plus it really gets to me the way her brothers have taken advantage of us in the past.
Am I so wrong?????
(wow.......that turned out longer than I thought) sorry
