If it helps try and visualize this, lets say you are an ardent anti fox hunting campaigner and you come home and find your place trashed and a pack of foxes chewing on your kids arm. I am sure you will probably feel, while standing in all that gore, maybe Fox hunting is not such a bad idea, Ringo try and put things into perspective, just after the incident, a ball and chain option is actually tad mild, Levikane suggestion of putting her down a garbage chute, is more appropriate for that moment.

As to a dog, she was the one who wanted to work a full seven days a week to pay off huge loans. Our driver works seven days a week in fact he is so please with his overtime salary he proudly announced he just purchased a second house. They are not kids, its their choice I don’t make it for them.

Read my previous post, she is free to pop out for shopping anytime during the day. She regularly makans with her chums at the local food court. After our previous $5000 fine for “allowing”

QRM, what an ordeal. I certainly hope that you have better luck with your next employee. I can well understand how you did what you thought was best at the time, a very scary situation to be in. Glad to hear that she is receiving medical help now.
