No, You may NOT bring your roadkill out here.

Okay......now I am a pretty understanding individual.
I try to be kind and supportive.
I TRY. But I have my limits.
Crazyfriend is mad at me.
She has this awful thing about stopping and picking up roadkill (possums, raccoons, cats and any other unfortunate creature that may be in the middle of the road) so that she can give it a "proper" burial.
Seriously, I swear to God....I am not making this up.
She carries a shovel, gloves and plastic bags in the trunk of her car and will stop anywhere.
It is an AWFUL yukky gross thing but she views it as a public service and does it out of "respect" for the unfortunate animal.
Well, she called me earlier this afternoon wanting a "huge" favor.
Now Crazyfriend has always been very helpful to me and I am willing to help her if I can.
BUT...Her 'favor" was that she had the carcass of a large dead dog in the trunk of her car that she's picked up off the road.
She couldn't get her good-for-nothing live-in "boyfriend" to help her so she wanted me to let her bring it out her to bury it.
I am sorry.......but there are just some things that you have to say NO to.

Transporting roadkill across county lines is one of those things.
I have to draw the line at bringing dead animals out here.
I told her no, it would upset us and I really couldn't let her do that.
She was bristling with righteous indignation when she hung up on me and now she's mad.
Sorry, even I have my limits.
No roadkill. Ever!!

That is so gross! I can see moving a dead carcass out of the road, but not transporting it to bury it. I have to confess that I am rather glad that you wouldn't do that for her.

Not only do your feet stay Ugg Boots Sale dry but the Thinsulate ultra insulation also ensures greater ease. language learning software It works by trapping air molecules between you and the outside. The more air a material traps in a given space, true religion sale the greater is its insulating value. The microfibers in Thinsulate insulation are far finer than other fibers; they trap more air in less space, which naturally Babyliss Pro 230 makes it a better insulator.
