“Meanest mother in Wyoming”

I saw this on facebook, which I look at about once a day.

Wonderful!  Reason #6467 to love Wyoming.


Speaking of Wyoming, help the Wyoming Carmelites ….

    Good mom!

    Methinks she did the right thing – it will teach the saddest son in Wyoming a lesson!

    I think the price kinda high for a Ford Ranger…. ah well I guess she may be mad but she’s not crazy!

    Local alderman and dept of transportation pols in Chi town just did something to p*ss off this Wyoming loving gal. Can’t move Mom as she will be 93 in a week’s time and deep into Alzheimer’s final stages. But after getting done with the snooty kid at the alderman’s office and his elitist “we know best what’s good for everyone” attitude, I told the Franciscan priest next door who will also suffer from this ridiculous parking ban, that I will be the one in my Mom’s funeral procession hauling a U Haul trailer. [Do they put “Funeral” stickers on U Hauls?] Wyoming, I wasn’t born within your borders but I will get there as soon as I can.

    By the way, this is a statistic that says so much about one-party governance, over regulation, burdensome taxation, wild cronyism and the harvest reaped by 60+ years of a giant political machine: every NINE minutes a taxpaying resident LEAVES Illinois peramanently for greener pastures. More frequently if you count the murder victims. If the states are indeed laboratories, mark the IL experiment in governance “FAIL”.

    Oh good for that mom!!!

    Hubby plans to let ours each get a high end, simply fabulous car that needs pretty much everything rebuilt but when done will be a high dollar and safe car. The idea being that after the kid has earned the money and hunted down or made parts, rebuilt, refurbished, etc. the whole car, the likelihood of stupidity leading to careless or foolish use of said car is decreased. The main thing is they must do ALL the work themselves.

    I think hubby is on to something.

    God bless the woman in Wyoming and the son who is hopefully learning a lesson and riding his bike to work 10 miles uphill every single day. (gleefully grinning)

    I can almost hear that mother, son conversation.
    Mom: I’m selling that truck.
    Son: your the meanest mom in Wyoming!
    Mom: yep, hey! thanks son I think I’ll use that when I list it.

    Mine has to earn every penny before he can have a car and pay for his own insurance. I’ve already explained that if he does something irresponsibly stupid and they impound it, he won’t have the money to pay the ticket and the impound lot. So I won’t even have to sell it. :) I love natural consequences. I just get out of the way and BAM! Hits him right between the eyes. Long conversations don’t seem to work as well.
