Keep your mouth shut you judgemental prick

Redneck's first sock is el completo. The second sock however, is not. That one is fresh on the needles tonight with only 6 rows of k2 p2 rib done. I was really hoping to surprise him tomorrow with them. He is coming home tomorrow night! WOO HOO!
My last day of work is tomorrow. Went to lunch with my boss and 2 coworkers today. What a time that was. Why is it that some people try to impose their value system on others? I like to think I live a pretty decent and normal life - that I'm nice to others and am generally a good person. Still, my soon to be ex boss found the need to express his feelings on his life and everyone else's in the office (which are all pretty similar). He came across as judgemental, and thought he was doing the "right" thing. Instead, he was offensive.
I was telling my neighbors (L & M) about what happened, and M said, "I would have **expletive** gotten out of my chair and gotten the **expletive #2** out of there." Tell me how ya really feel M!
So now I have to deal with these people tomorrow. Cripes. Hope the day goes by fast.
Because I have no knitting pictures, here is one situation that you don't see very often - Tucker and Bax. Together. In the same room. On the same bed. Inches away from each other.

Fat Ankles

I had an uncle that used to tell me I had fat ankles. Oh, yes - he was quite blatant about it. Not only did he flat out tell me, but I was also a teenager at the time. Nothing like self-esteem! I thought he was quite the asshole. I'll never forget the time when I was finally able to tell him (during an argument my parents were having with him in our driveway) that I didn't appreciate that he described my ankles in such a rude way. I don't remember his response, but recall being quite proud of myself that I was finally able to tell him how I felt. (BTW - I don't normally speak ill of the deceased, but at his viewing - in the funeral home that he owned and operated - people were wondering where he ended up. Does that tell you the kind of person he was?)
So after I took the picture of the sock, I couldn't help but think about my uncle. My ankles look really fat! Maybe I was wrong about him this entire time.
ANYHOW - the socks are for Redneck. They are from the new Knitpicks shipment received the other day. The goal is to have them completed by the time he comes home Friday. That is if I can keep all the animals off of me.
