    Default vent

    I'm at my parents' house and my sister is here too. I've been here all week and they are driving me bonkers. My family does not know how to communicate. My father just gets angry, my sister is passive aggressive and my mother justs internalizes everything until she starts crying. My dad goes to work every day and complains that he's the only one who works, even though my mom works too, just part time. He spends every evening in the basement drinking beer. My sister stays up every night until six in the morning and then sleeps all day. She spends the afternoon reorganizing the kitchen and transferring the food in the fridge into different tupperware containers. She eats carrots and pepsi and raisins and lectures everyone else on nutrition and proper food consumption. My dad talks about how much he wants us to come and visit and then he complains that his house is messy and there are toys everywhere when DS is here. I offer to make dinner every night so I'm not stuck eating greasy dead animal flesh, and then they complain that they have to eat *gasp* vegetables. My dad is actually going to bring fast food home tonight because he wants "real food". Both parents are smoking and wasting money on crap and then sulking because they don't have money to retire. I'm trying to not eat sugar, and my mother is baking pies and cookies and eating chocolate. IS IT SATURDAY YET???

    Frustrating! I could never stay at my parent's house either, I don't even like visiting. Our dad's sound about the same and my mom internalizes too. And yes it is almost Saturday

    Yikes! I can relate to some of it including both of my parents smoking and then complaining that they never have money and won't ever be able to afford to retire, etc. It's an ongoing story I hear over and over again and I get tired of it quite honestly.
    Bet you can't wait to leave eh? Sorry you've had to put up with that nonsense!
