I have just had a hernia operation so am not supposed to be stretching therefore DH took the week off work to do some decorating. The living room is completely stripped bare and needs doing asap. We planned to get stuck into it today however we were in the city centre yesterday and a tourist asked DH the way to the minster, DH thrusted in the direction of the minster and has gone and done his back in. I called brother this morning and asked if he would help us sometime this week and he said he would, for £50 the most annoying bit about it is that in May I spent 3 days decorating his bedroom whilst his wife was seeing to her newborn and he was away on business. I didn't receive or ask for a penny.
AIBU to think he shouldn't need paying to help out??
yanbu , i think he is out of order, you would think he would want to help, but thats families for you , could you not have a word with his wife , i bet she does not no hes asked for payment , goodluck.x
Can't get my amended version of the old Sam Cooke song 'Twistin' the Night Away' out of my head:
As the lyrics indicate, it is a very old song and there are more verses but here's the first:
"let me tell you 'bout a place somewhere up-a new York way where the people are so gay thrustin' the night away here they have a lot of fun puttin' trouble on the run man, you find the old and young thrustin' the night away"
Disclaimer: my pa is the Sam Cooke fan but he doesn't thrust in public and, as far as I know, only twists on the golf course and the dance floor or when playing cards.
