Thank you foretelling me what to say to these people. Dear Ann Landers 1 am girl 17, one of five children and thoroughly disgusted Withy parents. Mom and dad have been married 21 years Andall they have Ever done since i remember is fight fight fight. They throw things yell curse and lock each other out of the House. What s More they Don t care who sees or hear them. The Day after one of these disgusting Knock Down drag out brawls they act like a couple of lovebirds As if nothing happened. How can people be so changeable i be told my Mother a dozen times that if she had an ounce of self respect she would throw dad out of the House. He is the one who starts most of the fights she says you Are right but she never does any thing about it. What can 1 do to get motto throw dad out so we can have some peace and quiet around our place War zone dear zone nothing. So give up already. If your parents have been battling for As Longas you can remember they will probably continue to Battleford the rest of their lives. Some people get their kick from fighting and making up. It s unfortunate that these kooks Don t do their fighting where they could scream their childish Heads off and no one would hear them but the seem to enjoy performing for an audience. Just remember these ugly fights and vow that your Chil Dren will never have to put up with such stuff. Confidential to relaxed by liquor i be heard your theory before bub and it s a poor excuse for get Ting plastered. Perhaps your relaxed state prevented you from breaking some Bones when you fell but it is More than Likely that if you had been sober you would not have fallen Down the stairs in the firs place. 11 07.
