She's Gone

Discussion in 'Personal' started by huevosrancheros, Jun 6, 2011.

  1. When do you know you've done your job as a 'rent?
    Hard to say.
    It is in when they still talk to you but no longer need you. It is when sometimes they are too busy for you, but when they still need you in a crisis.
    It's when you know she's able to fend for herself against the opposite sex without you ranting in the corner!

  3. I presume you mean your daughter. I am not that far yet but I will give you the words of my mother, when I left England for Germany.
    "Nothing I will say will make you stay. I am here, always - and don't ****** forget how I brought you up".
    Of course, for years, I spent my life henceforce thinking my mother could have no possible advice for me. And of course, I made a mess of lots of things.
    Finally, one day, we daughters grow up and we are on the phone every five minutes to annoy you again asking for advice [​IMG]
    And one day, you are gone - and a huge hole opens up that will never, ever be filled.

     
  4. A woman who only needs a man for rent is basically a lazy cow and you are better off without her.
     
  5. huh, have I missed something`?
     
  6. I thought huevos meant 'parent' too.[​IMG]
     
  7. This made me think it was about an offspring, not a parent.

     
  8. Oh beg pardon. I saw "rent".
