mortgage is on me......

So there is something my husband said to me last night that I just can't seem to get out of my head........I'm not really sure what we were talking about or what brought this on...but T said "oh that reminds me...a couple of months ago...so and so said this..it was so weird it didn't make much sense"........ok...so are you going to tell me, I said??? Sometimes Terry takes a really long time to spit things out.....I imagine it is one of 2 things, he is either trying to process the right delivery of the particular statement, so I won't totally freak out or he really does need that much time to remember whatever it is at that moment...this I still have not figured out!....:)

So he started out really slow....well it was at work and so and so must have said something about your business...I guess, I'm really not sure...but Mr so and so then said well M's Dad would have just given her that building right??? hahahaha...............AHHHHH that shit really pisses me off....

a) this person doesn't know anything about me...I don't even think he knows who my Dad is, he has NEVER seen my shop, and how he ever knew that my Dad owned my building once is beyond me.........or is it??? and that brings me to b)
b) clearly someone idiot at my husbands work that knows more about me and my family...must have told this little tidbit to Mr so and so.......and Mr so and so is a bit slow..love him but honestly he is a little lacking in the brain department.... he wouldn't have thought anything of blurting it right out to T...

So after T told me this story I stayed calm and said well I really have no idea why I would work the crazy hours I do when Daddy is paying my bills for me...man it is so nice not to have a huge mortgage hanging over my head isn't it.....aggghhh Hello people if my Father had given me this building....why would I work as hard as I do.....please...give me a break....I love my job...but I really would love it just as much 10 hours a week instead of 60....

I know that I just have to get over what other people think...I have been dealing with people thinking my Dad pays for everything for me my whole life....I really don't know why it stills drives me so crazy...I think this time it bothered me so much because it was someone that isn't from my small gossipy town, someone that has heard this from another source...I have my thoughts on who that source was and that ticks me off even more...

I think what it boils down to for me, is this.....
I am always surprised when people talk about me, positive or negative...I honestly don't think my life is really that interesting...really people there is exciting shit going on out there in this big ole world.....this girls life is really fairly boring....:)

So for anyone reading this that thinks I don't have to pay my own bills....I am here to clarify that that is not true....my Dad is the King of the "business plan" and the taking the daughter to the banker and dropping her off with business plan in hand and letting her do it on her own....he has helped me with many many things(which I am grateful)...and I know if I couldn't make a payment on this lovely building he would have my back...but unfortunately giving was not something that he thought would teach me any "life lessons" :)
Now for my Dad, if you are reading this........feel free at anytime to take over the payments...really and truly I thank-you for all the "lessons" but I could be done with them now if that was your desire....and we shouldn't let the people down...give em want they want, give the girl the damn building already.....hahaha love ya Dad!!

Ha! I LOVE comments like that....I tip my hat to you because I KNOW how hard running your own business is. We tried our hand at it with our best friends and only made it a year before the economy tanked and we had to get out before we really started bleeding money! I hear you on the 60 hour weeks....

Some people do assume things, thinking you get freebie like that - don't you hate it???

Just because you come from a nice/wealthy family, doesn't mean you don't work hard for things that you own....

Well, but if your dad could take over your building's payment - I say jump in, head first!!!! :)
