“KNOW YOUR ROLE”

I learned a valuable lesson about respect, and tampering with role reversal the other day. I was visiting my father who is seventy-seven years old and he is recovering from quadruple bypass heart surgery. As we chatted for a while I noticed that it was 2:30pm. My father has lost a lot of weight since his surgery, so my concern for him eating on a consistent basis is at an all time high, so I decided to ask him if he ate lunch…..

ME:

“Dad, did you eat lunch today?

Father:

“No, I am just not that hungry right now, but I’ll try again shortly.”

Now it is at this point in our conversation when I should of said, “OK dad, when you are ready to eat again let me know, I’ll make your plate for you.” But instead…..

Me: “It’s 2:30pm already, it will be dinner time soon, you can’t afford to miss a meal!”

Father:

“I know, I am just not hungry right now!”

Me:

“Really, this is bullshit, I am over here trying to help you get back to good health, and you pull this shit.”

Father:

“Alright now, don’t bite off more than you think you can chew!”

Me:

“I am calling Stinky!” (sister)

Father:

“And what is she going to do?”

Me: ?

DAME
