I told him so, not once but many times over the years. You have to do something about your closet. When the pole breaks you're on your own. The last time I told him was Sunday, Father's Day. Two more shirts on the rack. I guess that was the final stress, the pole broke this morning, splintered all to pieces. Clothes everywhere, what does one person need so many shirts for? We have a favorite thrift store in San Antonio where we find new or like new clothes and get a senior discount on Monday and Wednesdays. John's daughter-in-law always remembers him with two shirts on his birthday and father's day but she doesn't remember he is not as large as he used to be. Somehow they don't seem to get exchanged. A waste, a sin, well his renter who is a large man has an unexpected bag of shirts on his front porch and John is still working on them. He thought I was going to hop in and start working on them but my butt seems to be glued to the chair. I've been working on my own problem. He will have to learn I've been keeping house for many years and I know when a pole (rack) is under stress.
