Rule № Thirteen
Check off as many as you think are appropriate.
Cry, weep, tear out your hair and go into hysterics
Make them eat it - no matter what
Rant, rave, get red in the face and make them run for their lives in fear
Don't talk to them for a few days
Cut off use of the telephone until they apologize (works sometimes)
Don't dish out any more money until they promise to eat anything you make (Works like a charm. Kids will do anything to get to your wallet.)
Go for the good old "Guilt Trip" scenario. (Always worth a try.)
Throw it all away in disgust (Prepare to do this quite a few times)
Give it to the dog and hope the dog doesn't turn its nose at it (don't even try the cat, it will make you feel that much worse.)
Slam a few doors to let them know how much your feelings are hurt (Like that will work.)
Immediately establish an open credit card line at your nearest hamburger junk food and pizza parlor.
Try and try again (Sweat, blood and tears - see guilt trip above)
Give the kids up for adoption - I tried it, but no one wanted them. I found them all huddled on my doorstep the day afterwards crying for my credit card and some Pizza Hut.
Start a fire in your kitchen. (Now that is a unique idea!)
Drown Your Sorrow In Self-Pity & Beer (This always works!)
Hit the Chocolate - Ears Perk! Someone say Chocolate?
