A friend of ours who has lived in the Portland/Seattle area for the last 8 years broke up with her boyfriend, lost her job, and moved back here to SLC all in the last two weeks. Because she always gave my wife a place to land when she needed it, my wife said she could stay with us until she got a job here.

She moved in Saturday.

Keep in mind its been about 10 years since they were last roommates.

Since Saturday, I've had to listen to me wife gripe about her. Every annoying habit that she's ever had has been detailed to me by my wife for the last 5 days. Such as, "She can go through a 32-ounce bottle of creamer in 3 days."

I've been good. I've said nothing but, "I'm sorry honey." Instead of saying, "It wasn't me that offered her a place to stay."

Until today. She made a run to the grocery store. She filled up my beer shelf... the fridge shelf for my homebrews... with Killian's Irish Red.

I guess its better than coming home and finding all the homebrew is gone.

Killian's Irish Red is an okay beer I drink it on tap here and there if I'm at a bad selection place like a Hooters....

So take this opportunity to clone that sucker since you have plenty of free samples.

With the title and the setup of that story I expected a different climax and denouement.

Not hot enough for me to consider stepping out on SWMBO. Not sane enough to consider dating if I was single.

I thought she'd skipped town with some tasty baked goods.

SWMBO's cousin stayed with us over new years, along with his girlfriend. Being family, the "make yourself at home, what's mine is yours" offer was extended.

At 2:00am I had to go out to the living room to ask them to keep it down a wee bit, since the wife and I had to be up for work the next day. And found the cousin, sitting on the couch, chugging my 2008 Surly Darkness. From the bottle. The coffee table was crowded with empties, a lot of them, like the Surly, from my "special shelf" in the beer fridge. Speechless, I went back to bed.

They left two days later. Not even a six pack of Bud Light was returned to the fridge. She had been stripped barren, and bare, and just a few Fat Tires and AVBC Winter Solstices remained.

If they ever come back, the ****ers are staying in a hotel.

What I got from this was "A single chick filled a shelf in my fridge with non-BMC beer."

I guess your priorities change when you get married

I thought she was broke. Where'd she get money for Killians?
All in all though, there are much worse things than some one putting beer in your fridge.

Dude, you might want to google Killians and find out who makes it. I'll give you a hint: it's the "C" in BMC.
