A few weeks ago. my mom asked me to drive her to the airport. I had forgotten, but she reminded me on Monday. No big deal, I'll hit up Costco on the way back and return some PJ's I had bought Jakah that were the wrong size.
Except My mom says "Well you have to watch M" (M is my niece who is about to turn a year old) .... She does not ask me, She informs me.
Fine, whatever... I drive her to the airport and drive back to drop M with my dad. Where he promptly says I have a dentist appt at 1:30, you need to watch M.
Again no one has asked me. (I guess I have nothing else ever planned in my days)
Now the funny part is, my dad has been complaining about this tooth hurting for the past YEAR. Oh yeah a year. And my sister has taken Wed, Thurs, Fri, Mon, and Tue off to watch her kids. (my parents watch/raise her children while she works)
Could my dad wait until today to go to the dentist? Apparently not.
Could he have called me after he made the appointment and asked if I could watch M? Again Apparently not
So Jakah did not get a nap because I was watching M. (people who have kids 10 months apart are amazing! I could never handle it)
To top it all off, My dad gets back from his dentist appointment at 2:50.... and says "D needs to be picked from school at 3:20".... (D is my nephew that I raised, I will tell the story someday)
The school is down the street from my parents house... WHY could he not pick him up on the way back?
WTF and they can't figure out why I want to move far, far away from them.
(unfortunately this happens quite often with my family. They seem to not be able to do anything for themselves. I am almost 30 damn years old and would just like to be asked if I could/would do something for them, not be told and assumed I will do it. Shocker, I would probably say Yes. But now I only want to say No and not talk to any of them)
PS.. I am 95% positive I am adopted
