Well, right now I'm a bit pissed off and frustrated as a caregiver.
My grandmother does this thing where she'll say to me "I should eat something, but I don't know what." I'll offer some suggestions, she'll pick one, I'll make it for her, and then she doesn't eat it. She'll take maybe ONE bite, and leave it. It's like, why did I even bother?
She often tells me that she's "not picky" which is BS (pardon my french!) I often wonder if she is in fact actually hungry at all or is it boredom? I don't know, but I'm getting super fed up making her stuff and just tossing it out. It's ridiculous and a total waste of food and my time. It's absolutely stupid that she complains she's hungry but doesn't actually eat anything. It makes NO sense!
I'm so fed up with this and got so mad this time around that tears just streamed down my face, and I stormed out. That's how mad I am at this issue. She does this to me A LOT and as a caregiver working two jobs, I don't have time for this nonsense nor the patience to deal with it.
She kind of reminds me of those bratty stars who demand their assistants get them something and then throw it away (think Miranda Priestly in "Devil Wears Prada"- the "get me my steak" scene and she ends up throwing the steak out.)
Help! What do I do? Is there any way I can curb this bad behavior of hers?
