The Nightly Rant Episode 423 Show Notes
Mike and Torya open the show by asking how inflation can be solved. Torya says by not printing money. Mike shares the answer from the US President – Americans need to spend less money. Mike then pointed out the President’s only notable accomplishment in his senate career is basically the Crime Bill that is now being blamed for calling the system racist. Because this proportionately imprisoned people of color. He is making the rules. Torya says he is not making any rules, he is just a decorative house plant, not even a living plant.
Then they talked about another Am I The Asshole episode about refusing to give up her dream wedding dress because it was the same dress as her mother-in-law will wear on her 50th birthday. She asked if she was an asshole for how she treated her MIL. Mike's opinion about this is that MIL is the asshole or no one is the asshole in the story. Then he elaborated his point. He’s leaning toward the MIL as the asshole in the post.
Then Torya reads one comment from the post effectively accusing the poster of leaving out key information from the story that makes the MIL salty. Mike says that you have to assume that the poster is telling the truth, there is no way you can’t make the poster an asshole. Torya leaned toward the same option Mike was pointing out. Other readers are asking for the MIL side of the story as well. The poster makes sure that she covers every base trying to make sure that MIL is happy. Mike points out that you need all the facts to determine who's the asshole or not.
Then Mike talked about the degree of love you have for someone. He doesn't think there is a max for love. Because with Torya, throughout the years they are together, every single time he thinks he can’t love her even more. Then something happens, and he even loves him even more.
They ended the show by both agreeing that the MIL is the asshole in the story.
