ugh, stupid post office. was supposed to get my fish from DarkMoon by 3 today and they're not here. plus apparently their website hasn't bothered to update their hours since 2008 and they actually do have office hours on Saturdays so I could have actually gotten them shipped last week instead >_<
Sakura, I know exactly how you feel. People in my family treat me like a child and my mom does, too. Just because you have a disability doesn't mean you have low intelligence. My brother thinks I have no concept of money because I've never really worked. Well, I've been managing my money all my life and doing a darn good job of it, thank you very much!
DQ, exactly! In my case, all the things I can't do, it's because they've always done it for me without giving me the chance to learn. Even now, my mom still won't let me cook. Afraid I'll burn the kitchen down, I guess. Hah, if my brother hasn't blown it up by now, I doubt I could.
I was never made to do anything when I was young. I cooked and cleaned when I was in college but when I moved back in with my mom she never asked me to do anything. It was just easier for her to do it herself, I guess. Then, when she is unable to do heavy stuff after her surgery, I get criticized how I wasn't used to doing housework. THEN, my mom tells my brother that it was overwhelming to me he says it's all part of being an adult. Those comments made me mad.
My parents are exactly the opposite. My mom is just lazy so she never did/does anything for us, we always had to do everything for ourselves. That usually equated to me cooking dinner and me cleaning the house while her two angels whirled through and destroyed everything in sight and my dad worked. >.>
Now that they're divorced, I live with my dad and they live with our mom and their house is a disgusting mess and I never go over there because it smells. So there. And now I know how to take care of things, so I have bettas. :D
I have a less scathing rant: Why is it I can never find an ice cream that isn't chocolate and has no chocolate in it? Dx And one that also isn't strawberry? I finally found a good caramel one from Edy's, but it was light. I want real ice cream with no chocolate and no strawberry. >:(
