Now that my parents will be home in less than 24 hours my bro is panicking. Bigtime. See, my father would NEVER permit HIS home to have locks that we didn't have a key to. Even when my mother was furious with us Dad insisted we keep keys. Heck, his own brother's house opens with the same key because they BOTH want it that way. Then if my uncle comes to town and my parents have a conflict my uncle can just come on it. And they don't have to hunt up extra keys on the rare occasion either one visits the other. Been that way for over 20 years. Bro left a message saying that the lock to the door was "broken" but that he would get it "fixed" no later than Wed. Parents will be home by them. I bet he has to take time off work to fix it, unless he did last night, because he does NOT NOT NOT want my dad to know how far he went. He also is now claiming he is only upset because we are so "angry" with my parents. We are not. They don't think we are. They are not angry with us. I bet he has brown stains in his underwear from fear that my father will finally tell him off. Cause my bro does fear him. Dad doesn't get upset often, but when he does it is a fearsome thing. This may not upset him. But I wouldn't take bets on it.
