The house was unlocked as usual but out of courtesy, we knocked so as not to startle her. She didn’t answer nor did she come to the door. (Remember this was pre-cell phone days.) We both became concerned, fearing something awful had happened like a stroke or a fall. He went towards to the kitchen and I took the back of the house where their bedroom and bathroom were. I heard something but couldn’t tell what it was, a muffled, strangled sound.
They got very drunk and I had to try to get them the mile home from the pub. This was very out of character by the way, they like a drink but would not usually get too drunk while I was there. My dad decided to walk down the middle of the road so I let go of my mother to go get him and she decided to squat and pee outside another pub. I was mortified as it was chucking out time and quite a few people saw! Why not? It’s a fun and funny app. If you’re worried about privacy put her account on private. And if you’re worried about what she’s posting make an account and follow her, she won’t post anything bad because she’ll know you could see it.
Another clear fact that has emerged is that the media panic reporting likely made the problem much, much worse. I saved many article headlines from March and April, and they gave the impression that Covid 19 was a death sentence, only disclaiming near the end of the stories that most people have only mild symptoms. People read this, and at the first sign of symptoms, many crowded into hospitals, thereby creating an instant huge infection of other patients and medical professionals that snowballed.
As an excellent recent article in the NYT times by a pulmonary ER doctor in NYC stated, most people should stay home, check their blood O2 with an inexpensive pulse/ox device, and contact their doctor. One of the key problems with Covid, as he stated, is that it can compromise the lungs without typical flu-like symptoms other than some mild breathing issues. But if alert for, the patient can do simple things like sleep on their side or stomach to let the lungs clear and recover, which is exactly what they do in the hospital, and it works very well. It is interesting to me that other than the opinion piece, the Times (or media in general) didn’t bother to report things like this in the main paper.
You say he ignores you when you ask for a favor so im guessing he does not want to give you the favor and also a text message is evidence so it can be held against him at some point should you guys fall out and worst case scenario that you start a work dispute case againt him. Maybe try ringing him instead. Myself, I am considered pretty decent at programming computers. My mother, who is now a suitably feisty 92 year old, can’t do that – even though she is a whizz at programming a VHS tape VCR to record a TV program in the future. No mean feat, that.
I was sure my beloved mother-in-law was in distress and flung open her bedroom door, prepared to administer CPR if needed. My sweet, petite mother-in-law was receiving CPR alright, but not from a licensed paramedic. She lay on her back on her bed, her legs spread with a very large, younger man on top of her. They were both going at it hard. I’ll never erase the picture of that mans semi-hairy butt gyrating frantically between the legs of my breathless mother-in-law, both blind to my presence, locked in the throes of pleasure as they were.
