Speaker 1 (00:25):
Thank you nephew. Subject she has no idea what he's doing.
Dear Stephen Shirley, I'm a thirty four year old married
woman and I'm staying at my cousin's house temporarily while
I'm working on a project in Austin. My cousin is
fifty two and her husband is forty eight. My room
is on the other side of their house, by the kitchen.

(00:45):
I've heard my cousin's husband on the phone mumbling late
at night, darn near every night since I've been staying
with them. He's usually on the couch every night until
three am, and then he goes to bed. My cousin
is up and out early in the morning for work,
and then her hubby is free to FaceTime some woman
that has an annoying laugh. She's tickled by everything my

(01:06):
cousin's husband tells her. I can't hear all of the conversation.
I just hear her giggling. I've seen him come in
from work, hanging up the phone as he reaches the
back door. The worst part was running into him recently
at the grocery store's seafood counter. I playfully said I
was surprised to see him in the store and asked

(01:27):
if he was cooking dinner. He told me, yes, he
was making dinner, but not at home. I almost choked.
He beat me to the house and he was in
the showers, so I assumed he was joking. When I
saw him in the grocery store, I went and peeked
in his car, and the grocery bags were on the
back seat. Around seven thirty pm, he threw on a
sweatsuit and headed out. I decided to ask my cousin

(01:50):
if she knew where he went. She said he was
going to the gym so he wouldn't have to get
up early in the morning to go. He walked in
at two am and slept on the couch. Cousin has
no idea what he thinks he's doing. Is it best
to stay out of this or can I give her
a few pints? Well, I mean, come on, I think
you already know the answer to your own question. And

(02:12):
I think you know what Steve and I are going
to say. We're going to say, this is not your business.

Speaker 2 (02:16):
Of course.

Speaker 1 (02:17):
Yeah, you're staying at their house.

Speaker 2 (02:18):
That's what I'm gonna say.

Speaker 1 (02:20):
Yeah, that's what I'm saying as well. I know you
think you should be doing something because this is your
cousin you want to help. You feel compelled, you know,
to help her see this loser of a husband she
has for who he really is. But you have to
stay out of this. Come on, now, your cousin is
going to end up having some sort of misplaced anger
towards you, you know, and getting mad at you for

(02:43):
telling her all of this. You'll get put out and
you won't be able to finish your project that you're doing.
That's the reason you're staying in the house in the
first place. I say you stay focused on what you
came Therefore, hurry up and finish so you can get
out of the house asap. That is the only thing
you should be concerned about right now. Whatever he's doing

(03:05):
buying breakfast, I mean buying a dinner and all that,
he's sloppy with his cheating. She's bound to see what
he's doing if she even cares before too long. Anyway,
you don't have to have anything to do with that
who leaves groceries in the car in bags. I mean,
your cousin and her husband are going to have to
figure this out on their own. They do not need

(03:26):
your help, Steve.

Speaker 2 (03:30):
Ugh, Can we do another letter? Can we? Can we
just do another letter? It's so odd.

Speaker 1 (03:41):
One we have for today?

Speaker 2 (03:42):
Just do it. It's just so obvious, though, why are we?

Speaker 1 (03:45):
Yeah? It is of course.

Speaker 2 (03:49):
How many times have we had to tell people?

Speaker 3 (03:54):
Mostly me though, because Shirley will switch up on you
in a minute.

Speaker 2 (04:00):
Early, Yes, about me just give your.

Speaker 3 (04:02):
Well, I'm just saying I was really surprised, because surely
will girl, you have to tell her.

Speaker 1 (04:08):
I've heard you do it, maybe maybe a long, long,
long time ago.

Speaker 2 (04:13):
Maybe, Oh so what has changed?

Speaker 1 (04:16):
This is not about me just giving me will.

Speaker 2 (04:18):
It's about this. Let we gotta do something because the
letter ain't.

Speaker 1 (04:21):
Nothing you're doing glasses, Yeah, glasses.

Speaker 3 (04:26):
No, these are off. These ain't got nothing to do
with this letter. Oh really, I buck the glasses on line.

Speaker 1 (04:33):
Okay, they're cute.

Speaker 3 (04:35):
I actually did the face fitting in and everything. I
don't have nothing to do that day.

Speaker 1 (04:43):
Nothing back to the letter.

at your cousin's house temporarily. You need to get out.

Speaker 2 (04:51):

birthday surprise for his wife? Was he playing an anniversary
surprise for his wife? He was mumbling lay that night?

(05:31):
