44. Yeah, yeah, she's an adult and all that, but if she wants to talk
Edited on Wed Dec-22-04 07:57 PM by Is It Fascism Yet
to the Marines, she's going to have quit making those great grades and get a job so she can buy her own phone. They will not speak to her on my phone, because I don't pay a phone bill in order to enable sharks to stalk my daughter. She doesn't want to talk to them, but, if they reached her she would politely listen. As I said, this is an unusually straight arrow, this child, who would never be rude to any authority figure, she is one of those kids who never had a behavior problem, one of those who always respected her elders. I know they are good at what they do, and I know if they get her on the line, they will try to make her feel guilty for the money her parents, (really, her Step-father) have to lay out for college. They tried to guilt trip her about this while she was still in high school, telling her she shouldn't burden her parents with tuition when she could earn it in the military. They already got their chance to brainwash her when they swooped down on her high school graduating class during class hours. They made her believe it would be an unfair burden on her parents. Even so, she didn't want to go, because she is very politically aware, and so, she accepted it when I told her it was a lie, that with her scholarships we could afford her education just fine. Upon receiving further encouragement from her step father, she did tell them "no" herself, last year. Still they persist, hoping she will change her mind. If they ever speak to her again, it will not be on my phone.
