This is a vent, and nothing more...I gotta get it out somewhere. My mom is driving me nuts. We bought a programmable coffee pot so she can have coffee in the mornings without trying to make it herself and making a huge mess. Someone in the house fixes it and turns it on every single night for her.
Anyway, she has started getting up around midnight and going in my sons's room and waking him up to ask him if he fixed the coffee. Well, this week he has exams, and she went in there at midnight, as usual, waking him up asking about the coffee. He told me about it this morning, and I said something about it to her. It went something like this-
Me: Why did you go in Joey's room and wake him up last night?
Her: To make my coffee.
Me: Yea, but at midnight?
Her: It wasn't late.
Me: Yes, it was and he has exams this week. You don't need to be doing that.
Her: Fine, I won't bother him anymore (crying now).
Me: Mom, stop that please. I just asked you to not wake him up at midnight. (She mumbles something rude).
Me: Mother, this is my house and you are not the only person living here. Please do not wake anyone up in the middle of the night for something like that again. Thank you.
Her: Weeping and crying now.
I never raised my voice, just spoke sternly. She has no respect for anyone else and expects us to just do whatever for her-ALL THE TIME. Makes me nuts.
Thanks for listening. Have a great day!
