    A bit late, but bursting into tears and sobbing that your doctor told you that you could never have kids, and your fiance split as soon as he found out...

    If my husband said he was going to "force" my TB to do anything before getting on, roweled spurs or not, I would also be more PO'ed at myself than at my husband as that's an obvious disaster waiting...

    My business takes CC's. When we run a card the payment doesn't hit our account for 2-3 days. If we need to do a refund it takes 2-3 days to put the money back. Don't blame the vendors as we have...

    Nope, it's not, but at least the board where I see the harshest stuff is not available to anyone except industry insiders. The OP's story is quite tame by comparison.
