ohh thank you, this is the perfect thread.
i'd like to add my FiL to it aka CFILKIA he insists he knows more about EVERY SINGLE SUBJECT than anyone else!
in particular, i worked for distributor A (names changed to protect the innocent
) we needed widget 1, the ONLY source we had of widget 1 was from the manufacturing line, there was quite literally NO OTHER WAY to get these unless we waited over 6 months for a possible shipment.
However..... as i explained this predicament and the fact that we were very grateful to manufacturer for helping us get widget/s FiL stated "Cow Manure!", "excuse me?" said i, "i can get those, look here on alternate-(but not suitable for what we need)-manufactured widget site"
Me -" yes they are ok for a short time whilst we wait for the widgets from Manufacturer, but long term they aren't...", "Cow Manure!"
and repeat ad infinitum.........
in the end (pre my e-hell days) i stood up, said i wasn't aware he'd started working where i had, when had he started? (snide smile) followed by, shut up you (un e-hell approved swear word) and said goodbye to MiL and hubby & i left, not before hubby told FiL to shut up (in many other words...)
