Yup thats where I've managed to land myself. So a little background, over the weeked the wife and I had a party at our place. Some friends of mine brought their own beer (they haven't come around from the BMC scene yet), and left a partly opened case on my patio. They following morning when I was cleaning up, my wife asked me to bring it in. Which I forgot to do. We were out of town the rest of the weekend, and the beer sat on my patio. Well at some point while we were gone, our nighbor's son decided to take one of the beers. Or neighbor is a long time friend of my wife (They've known each other since highschool), and was not happy with this. She wrote my wife a nasty e-mail which I haven't seen, but has aparently upset my wife enough for her to chew my ass when she got home, then lock herself in the bedroom. Now granted I should not have left the beer out, but where does her friend get off yelling at her becase her son cannot respect presonal property? Would she yell at the grocery store manager if her son stole a candy bar? I guess it's easier to lool for someone else to place the blame on rater than admit that your son is a delinquent.....

Yup, that's what people do best, blame others for their failure. Grab your old lady and make her read this, then demand an apology.

BC- The kid is young, but old enough that beers are for adults, and to know that it is wrong to steal.

WW- maybe but I'll let her cool down a bit before I share my opinions

Let me get this straight. The neighbor kid trespassed onto YOUR property, stole YOUR property, the parent had the nerve to scold your wife for having beer on YOUR property, and you are in the dog house?

If this was a true friend, they would have apologized for the kid stealing your beer, and made the kid apologize as well. If they want to go the ******* route, I'd call the cops and press charges on the little bastard for trespassing, theft, and minor in possesion. It's doubtful with a parent like that, but maybe it would help them realize which party was in the wrong here.

KC- I think you've summed it up pretty well. I'll point this out to her later. More important than picking ones battles is timing ones battles

Tell her that your neighbors owe you a beer. Keep the email she sent btw. You never know if you'll need it in the future. Hopefully he doesn't start stealing more than beer. Any parent that is going to blame you and not their son is the sort that probably doesn't know 99% of what their son is up to. Maybe get a nice dog and teach it to protect beer. Belgian malinois are great beer protectors.

If your wife was right in this I would say let her cool off before you present your side, but she is wrong in the most complete way. Keep the email, grab the biggest "rubber mallet" you have and start hitting all the women involved in this in the forehead.
The kid trespassed and stole from you. Lets see how that holds up against his drinking a beer.
Oh, and ban this irrational f'ed up "friend" of your wife's from your home. No man needs that kind of drama.
