I agree though. At the very least, people should pick up after themselves. I'm not a damn maid or personal servant.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice....shame on me.
I was simply saying that what he has described really isn't all that bad.
Dad would go out with the boys every now and then, kick the kiddy shows off of the TV when he got home, and drink a beer?
Was he physically or emotionally abusive? Was he constantly drunk?
Hell, he even said that they had a second TV in the house, so it's really not even like his father was preventing them from watching what they wanted to anyway.
IMO, anyway, it sounds like a certain poster is getting his panties in a twist over a whole lot of nothing and needs to get over it.
