You're nicer then I am.

I sure as heck wouldn't have helped. Do on to others, as they say...No one could be bothered to help you, I would have returned the favor.

You know I had almost the same thing happen to me with my girlfriend's sister a few years ago...no one shows up so i'm stuck lugging furniture **** near by myslef from the third floor of one place to the second floor of another...at least you got pizza out of the deal, you got me beat there. For once, I want to be the one mooching off people instead of the one getting a hernia because I'm a nice guy.

Oh no, Lori, I feel terrible for you and Daniel. That saying comes to mind -- "Lack of preparation on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part!"

Even though they didn't help you guys move, I think you can be proud of yourselves for helping them out. A good deed does not go unrecognized! Too bad they won't appreciate it, though.

My cousin had his wedding outside in Florida in July. It was nice but I could not believe how hot it was!

I'll bet more grandmothers have died on days when friends are supposed to help friends move than any other day of the year - and by a wide margin.
We'll be fighting in the streets with our children at our feet, and the morals that they worshipped will be gone.

And the men who spurred us on sit in judgment of all wrong, they decide and the shotgun sings the song.

Funny you should mention this Lori. I believe there is some sort of disease/ailment that strikes people only when an occassion such as "Moving Large/Heavy Object" comes up.

Case in point...my father in law asks if I want to help a friend of his move their entertainment unit. Upon arrival, the unit had not been emptied (36" TV, DVD player, etc.) and tons of photos and tons of knick knacks. The "friend" stated that he assumed "we" would do this. What a nerve! Not to mention that he suddenly had to run out to get something extremely vital and asked if we could start while he was out. 3 hours later, he returned. We had moved everything out of the unit and disassembled it. My father in law told his friend that "something came up" and we left.
