Check Yourself (Before You Wreck Yourself)

Check Yourself (Before You Wreck Yourself)

My favorite parts of this book are the frequent "real-life" situations and dilemmas to really drive home the lessons. Here, we use the universal example of Mrs. B, who really, REALLY wants a new fur coat, and is willing to be a gigantic-ass baby about it.

You can almost picture Mr. B coming home from the club to find the coat box, which Mrs. B has not-so-cleverly disguised as a rocket ship and filled up with pieces of drywall from the bedroom ceiling (which she destroyed while trying to launch the coat box into orbit, thinking this would be the best way to hide the evidence of her purchase), and going, "MISSUS BEEEEEE!" in his trademark style, right as the closing credits scroll up and he proceeds to hilariously beat her up with the business end of a broom handle.
