May I Rant?
My MIL just told me that her youngest 'MAY' stop by on his way home from a wedding down South. There would be four of them. She does not know where he plans to stay or even IF he plans to stay more than a few hours. She lives in an apt. connected to our home. I AM THE ONE WHO CLEANS FOR HER. Am I the ONLY ONE (my MIL thinks ANYTHING this jerk does is great) who feels his lack of communication is appalling? I feel that just 'showing up' without even a warning is just the rudest. He may show up anytime Sunday - Wednesday. She doesn't know anything until HE CALLS HER again. Even though we have asked him repeatedly to call us also, he does not. I am livid. She has doctor appointments on Tuesday and probably didn't even tell him - even though there is a reminder note on her kitchen cabinet!! She doesn't even remember to check reminder notes - we remind her when it is time to get ready to go.
I guess I am just so completely disgusted with this 'piece of work' called her child that I am about over the edge again and as long as they stay away - I manage pretty well. He has not lifted a finger to do anything for his mother except an occasional hour or two visit in the nearly ten years she has been with us. Yet, he is her little darling and can do no wrong.
For two cents, I would go shopping the day he comes and LOCK our doors. Let him visit with his mother and take her out to eat.
Well, I think I feel better. Sorry for the rant. I haven't been here for a while and then I go and to this. Sorry.
