What they'll do for a buck. And so intrusive.

Why didn't the daughter listen?

Oh, I don't know. Just look at your Location: "in the in the miseries".

Anyone miserable enough to post that as their "location" in their profile has announced it is a "attitude".

In the miseries. Isn't what it appears. The Misery Islands, a play on words.

You don't have an attitude, you have a latitude (and probably a longitude as well).

she could have said no. Unless she's been declared mentally incompetent, she had the right.


My mom did when was 90 or near to it.
