He did it again!!!!

Many of you will recall the newspaper delivery fiasco we got ourselves into over Thanksgiving break. If you don't, feel free to go to November 2005 and I'm sure you'll find those blogs. Well, Brother Stake Patriarch had the nerve to leave Sheldon a voice mail asking Sheldon if he could help him with the ordination of a family member. Sheldon called him back and the Brother Stake Patriarch asked, "so can you help me out?" Sheldon said, "Of course" and then Brother Stake Patriarch proceeded to tell him that the "help" he needed was for us to do the paper route, AGAIN. And Sheldon said, "ok" ( without consulting me, of course). I'm not sure who to be upset with, Sheldon for saying, "yes" or Brother Stake Patriarch for asking.

So, if you ever need anything done, and no one else wants to do it, feel free to ask the Gilberts because the word, "NO" is not in our vocabulary.

Hey Sheldon, can you help me out with my outlines this semester? (I would ask for you to bring lunch for us everyday, but I have horror flashes of garbage disposals popping into my mind)

So, he didn't help him with an ordination?

Kim - depends on your definition of "help"

This Patriarch is starting to make me made, and I don't even know him.

The first thing you need to do is not let Sheldon near the phone. Secondly, you need to start getting prepared to say no when this guy asks you to do this for the third time. Because he will ask again.

Otherwise, you guys might just have to move out of the stake. This guy's got some nerve.

It is a moot issue. We My wife has planned a Gettysburg trip that weekend, and as such we will be unable to assist our friend.

Sincerely, the Management
