Reason 47562 I hate help…

Two weeks ago: “Oh my God!” I exclaimed as I grabbed my head in my hands. “I have so much to do and I don’t even know where to start.” I started to nervously rattle off my to-do list to my annoyingly calm husband. “Why don’t you give me some stuff to do?

“I’m worried about Cole,” I said to my husband as we drove to Costco. “Huh?” He asked absentmindedly. “I think he may be losing his job?” “Who?” With a little more outrage then was probably needed, I replied, “Cole.” “Paul?” He asked, confused. “I thought he had his own business.” “Who?” “Paul. Your cousin… Didn’t you just say you were worried about him?” “No, I said I was worried about Cole. I think he may be losing his job. And…
