Excellent entry for the Not funny but funny writing prompt contest.

Inlaws can be pretty annoying lol

Good luck in the contest.

    Thank you, Gypsy Blue Rose.
    Your kind review is quite
    generous. I like to balance
    writing humor along with
    serious or neutral poetry.
    Many blessings to you ~

That is very sad to think about. You used very good descriptive words and very good imagery from your words and especially the notes. Best wishes in the contest. Teri

    Hi Teri! Fortunately there are
    many generous wealthy
    people besides stingy people, thank God. I thank
    you for the kind review. Many
    blessings to you and yours.

I guess they would probably defend their attitudes by saying something like "How do you think we got our money, by tipping foolishly?" If I've got it, I spend it. That's what it's there for. Eat big then tip big. Waiters and waitresses have one of the toughest jobs already, and then even the government doesn't want them to keep what they have earned by being nice. Getting off the subject, sorry.

But you hit it right on the nose, which is where you probably should have hit that "in-law prat."

Good story. It riled me some, but good.

    Hi Gary, you have the kindest
    philosophy with eating out
    and giving good tips to servers. My daughter and
    sister-in-law worked as
    waitresses for a few years.
    As you say, a tough job.
    They waited on some lovely
    customers who tipped them
    well, and then there were some who were not pleasant
    at all. I feel a lot of sympathy
    for blue collar workers.
    Many blessings to you and
    your family. ~

This poem, In-laws, has an unusual scene where one of us, the good in-law, has to respond to the others in the only thing they understand.

    Hi Bill, yes, they are a horrid
    couple that I believe even a
    kind person like Mother Teresa would of gotten real
    exasperated with them, lol!
    Thank you so much for the
    5 star review. Blessings ~

You are making me laugh. Yes i too dislike people that are cheap and do not tip properly.
Nice poem. You could smooth out the metre a bit but overall an enjoyable read.

    Thank you so much,
    Carlos' girl. I hope your
    summer days have been
    breezy and enchanting. I
    didn't think this crazy poem
    was going to be popular, but
    you, and some other fellow
    poets like it. I try to balance
    out serious and humorous
    poems. Many blessings to
    you. ~

You must understand. This is how rich people become rich and remain so. They are not all like that of course, but some have at least a few cheapstake habits. I know one millionare who shops for food every day, heading directly for the reduced "eat by today" shelf...

    Hi Katherine, I find cheap
    rich people to be a source
    of inspiration to write about.
    I also know some very kind
    wealthy people, and that
    balances it out. Thank you so
    much for the 5 star review.
    Many blessings to you. ~

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

This met the writing prompt criteria really well! It was hilariously done ("Monkey skat. HAHAHAHAHAHA) on a subject that is absolutely INFURIATING! Sounds like you handled it as best as you could under the circumstances.

Good luck in the contest. This definitely seems like a contender!

    Thank you so much,
    Rachelle. I like generous
    wealthy people, not stingy
    ones, lol!!! I used to be an
    artist and some of the buyers
    of my art were well off, but
    acted like it was such a big
    financial sacrifice. People
    can be very puzzling. I like
    to make fun of selfish people
    in my poetry. I hope you're
    having an enchanting summer. Blessings to you. ~

Regina,
I like your tongue in cheek humor. I used to prattle over the small things when more important things were at hand. Lol.
I like your irony and tone.
Good luck!
Blessings,
Cindy

Congratulations for writing a silly poem that falls in tandem with the entry requirements of the Not funny but funny writing prompt.

The work highlights a pack of revellers, who veer from a queer kind of comic spree into the realm of the avant-garde.

The work earns its texture through its effective use of imagery akin to the chaotic.

Excellent work. Bravo.

    Thank you, poetry friend.
    I have a very strange sense

    me to laugh. Thank you so
    much for the 5 star review.
    Many blessings to you. ~
