Mother and Scotts, I will keep your family in my prayers. An ex employer's husband went missing earlier this month at the lake and has not been found yet.

This is so sad...have they not found either victims?

Lets see so they were swimming to shore when he disappeared? Hmm its called DROWNING!

yeah. maybe. but he is my brother-in-law. try to be a little sensitive.

Such a shining example you are of the human race. Thank so so much for clearing this up for us.
We shall all pack up and go home now. Off with the search for our family member! No sense wasting our time and effort since you have pieced it all together and solved the case.
Onward you go now and see who else's day you can illuminate.
