Subject: RE: MOAB - Mother of All BS [annex]

I am so angry! When I built the cabinets in my kitchen over twenty years ago, I made the drawers just a bit over ten inches wide because that was the width of a wicker cutlery tray we had. Who knows where it came from. It was just there. I assumed the tray was of a standard size and that we'd be able to get a replacement when needed. Over the years, being wicker and in regular use, the tray started to get raggedy and my wife began to hound me about replacing it. That's when I found that it was definitely NOT a standard size. I must have tried to find a replacement for ten years or more. Today, I accomplished the goal! I found a cutlery tray exactly 10.04 inches wide. It fits in the drawer like they were custom made for each other!

So, to recap, after many years of trying to please my wife by replacing our ratty cutlery tray, I finally find one that's perfect. And my wife's no longer around to be pleased. Fuck!
