We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Oooph! That was painful. But as the mother of six grown sons I believe anyone who started flipping a table over wouldn't get a chance at the second one. And would probably have been made to clean up the mess he made and apologize to the hostess before being allowed to leave. The alternative would not be pretty.
When I heard that whiny, I thought of one of the grandbrats who thought biting the nanny was a good idea. Father's response to the nanny: next time that happens, you bite back. Problem solved. Rather sounds as if the whiny son wasn't bitten back early enough.
Unfortunately, if this is staged, they're guilty of animal cruelty based on the reactions of the two labs that are present in the "Apology" video. The dogs don't know when the screaming is fake or when it's real.
Happy Thanksgiving to all the Maggie's readers out there.
