I will pile on too. Last Thanksgiving, I and my wife
went to Green Bay to visit her 38 yr old son who is shacked up with his girlfriend. He and the girl are good people with professional jobs but buy their clothes at thrift stores because they see new clothes as vain. My wife took her son to Kohl's to get him clothes as his Christmas present. Him going to Kohls is like me going to one of the men's shops at the Bellagio. After shopping he headed to an AT&T store to buy the latest gadget phone. As I watched football that evening, he and the girl were engrossed in that damn phone. I pointed out that their English Bulldog had pooped in his bed and her son said "I'll clean it tomorrow". That says it all!!!
