    She got me clothes, really nice stuff from the Pearl Izumi outlet.


    All too small. :disgust:

    Man, what do I do? Tell here they're too small and send them back? I got no PI outlet here to return them on my own.

    Life is hard.

    How far is the closest PI outlet? Or how far is your moms? Maybe she did it on purpose so that you would have to come home to visit when you return it all.


    Or shes telling you you're fat.

    Send it to me, I wear Medium.

    I have monkey arms too. I have dealt with the fact that all long sleeves will be rolled up at all times, unless it fits like a poncho.

    No that's a good post. I should be thankful my mom sent me anything at all, and I am. I just really like all the clothes that are too small. :busted:

    Moms have a subtle way of telling us things. Last Christmas my mom gave me soap and tooth paste.

    You could try exchanging them at a shop that carries the same product?

    Assuming your morals are flexible enough for that :D

    Just to make H8R feel better about going emo...

    My mom threatened the lives of her grandkids, my niece and nephew the night before my wedding. It was so stressful that my sister (kids' mom) was ready to fly home and not attend my wedding. That would've sucked as my sister and her family is the only family that I truly care about.

    I'm really sorry to hear that.

    I didn't mean to bring everyone down. This is a hard time for me. My mother isn't dead but she will be soon if she doesn't turn everything around and there's nothing I can do about it (as it's always been).



    In the meantime I try to enjoy the awesome family that I have.

    Merry Christmas to you too.

    You didn't bring me down. Not that you shouldn't keep trying to get her help but sometimes you just have to enjoy what you have with those you love and remember the good times you had with those you can't.

    I know it's more than alcohol. That's a side effect. She's bat-sh!t crazy.

    My mom (who is not crazy, or dead) sent me a ton of clothes today and someone stole the fvcking package off the front porch. I should have told her not to have them leave it without a person being here.

    Same here.
    This is the worst thread ever.
    I would wear a size small pink Pearl Izumi tank top if it would bring my mother back.


    :D:shocked:
    Sorry, I could not even type that with a straight face.
    I don't feel guilty for those comments because I know if my mother was here, she would laugh at them.
