I just cannot help myself. maybe I am bad to the bone...yes thats it...bad as! One of my borther inlaws was telling me a story about a converstaion he had had with my sister...(not his wife) another sister... the sister- that sister! The Social worker sister!...

Sometime back in a gathering he had said, without putting himself down...just in conversation "I'm just a bus driver." which he was. And happy about it...no self esteem problems there!

She looked at him with full, concerned blue eyes and said seriously and with "compassion",
"No Bruce, you are not just a busdriver. You are the bus driver"

We guffawed a bit...I mean what do they teach these flibbertigibberts?

When I told Don we both fell about laughing. You mean to say I am not just a "useless bloody cripple" I am "the useless bloody cripple"?

And I said "Right you are son!" as I scrapped of yet some more of his dinner off the walls... beating the wonder dog Thorn to it...he is getting a little chubby!

And I am not just a boring old hausfrau...I am "the boring old hausfrau" and proud of it.

That sounds so like my sister who just happens to be a social worker/born again christian in Canberra. Unfortunately, we are not on speaking terms at the moment but I sure that will change once she is off her high horse.

Oh boring old haus frau, some of us are just determined to make other people feel better. So much so that it never occurs to us that they might feel just fine without our intervention.

I know. I used to be one of those people.

Now I am The Person Who's Not Like That Anymore. LOL!

Jeeeez, MC, do these people have a humour bypass when they become social workers? I can't stand the interfering useless bastards.
