Well, I am officially an idiot. Only an idiot could finally lose his temper and snap at his wife during the graduation of their oldest son.

The week had been horrendously stressfull as the oldest boy had flunked his economics final. I took off part of Tuesday and went with the Navy recruiter to see what we could do and was told nothing. He was not going to walk with his class.

The economics teacher went to bat for him and she and THE WIFE got him another try at it. He made up a lot of work, studied his butt off and passed. (Thank God).

THE WIFE's family has been in and a big family adds to big stress. My Dad and Step-Mom came in also for the graduation along with Andrew's biological father, grandmother, grandfather and uncle. Needless to say I have been a ball of stress. It built through this evening with the traffic, the fact that I didn't trust the directions the school gave (sorry when you are driving NORTH and they tell you to turn right that is EAST not NORTH as the directions said, but I digress). We finally got parked got in, the boy graduated, I didn't kill anyone and then THE WIFE asked where we were supposed to meet the boy. I told her at the EAST entrance. She told me that he would never find the east entrance, how would we find him?

I snapped. I shouldn't have, but I did.

I yelled that I was doing the best I could. She tried to say something else, but I yelled for her not to talk to me.

Yep, I am great. So now my wife doesn't have pictures of her and her son at graduation because I made her cry. I am an ass.
