Susan asked her daughter to rate her as a mother using the standard one to ten scale; one being awful and ten being wonderful.
An hour earlier Susan made her daughter cry when she yelled; 'You go out and work fifty hours a week, not make enough money, come home, and I'll b*tch at you the way you b*tch at me.' Anyway, what do you think Susan's number was? You're going to be surprised.
Susan was awarded an 8.5!
The daughter thought Susan would be upset that she didn't get a 10 but Susan is a realistic person with imperfections and knew she couldn't possibly score a 10. She inquired of the daughter what she might have to do for a 10 & it was recommended that she eliminate some yelling.
The daughter's gonna have to be happy with an 8.5 mom.
