Should I Stay or Should I Go


Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor's house, lest he have his fill of you and hate you. — Proverbs 25:17

Sorry, I love this one. And I really don't have much to say about it since it says it all right here in the text. Don't wear out your welcome by failing to pick on the social cues that it's time for you to leave.

So, just for awareness:

If you come over to my house and I look down at my watch and say, "Man, it's getting late!" — it's time for you to leave.

If you come over to my house and suddenly look up and my wife and I are gone, then it's time for you to leave.

Or if you have lived with me for 20 years, and I have fed you, put you through college, and you need a job, then it's time for you to leave.

    Where’s the song? Probably only a secular rap song pertaining….. I guess “Rise up” wouldn’t quite fit ☺️ Thanks for all of your hard work Vince!

  5. David L. Trima says:

    I’m an only child, my wife is the oldest of 5. There’s been a few times when I’d have had enough, and have to get up the next morning for work. I’d kiss my wife good night, say good bye to our guest, and go to bed. When my wife would eventually come to bed, I’d get “That was kind of rude”. I’d say” yes it was but I forgive them”

  6. Jeffry says:

    Growing up we had a clock with weights, when dad was ready for bed, he would wind the clock and go to bed, no comments made, guests would eventually notice my dad missing and ask where he was, then notice the time. It’s still a source of joy when remembering Dad.
