okay so I got an email from my mom this morning
they’re cleaning out the attic and they need me to get the stuff i have
stored there (important sentimental stuff, etc.)
she says there’s one box already and that trash day is thursday AM so I
have 3 days to come pick it up and I’m just ??????
am I crazy for thinking that kind of ultimatum is uncool and unfair and
actually a little bit mean?
because I mean I get that she hates having stuff clutter her house and it’s
not like it’s “pick it up by tonight” but she couldn’t even give me through
I have work all week and I can’t come by after work since I get off at 1
AM; I can’t come by in the morning because before I fall asleep is too
early; and generally I am still asleep until about 4 PM when I have to get
up and get ready for work so afternoon is difficult too -
not to mention that I have so much shit to do at home before camp
I’m really kind of frustrated and upset right now and I sent a reply trying
to explain how unreasonable I think she’s being but it was probably not the
most tactfully worded because it was fairly knee-jerk so she’s probably
going to be pissed off at me altho tbf she probably would have gotten angry
no matter how tactful I was and sometimes when she gets angry she does
really irrational things so now I’m kind of a little worried she’ll pitch a
fit and like, leave my stuff outside or something.
I mean, only a little.
ETA: Just talked to my Dad. He says if it comes to that he’ll put my stuff
in his car and drive it over to me himself.
Pros of having that conversation:
- Reassurance that I am not crazy and it is not just me.
- Reassurance that although my dad will get fed up and just tell my mom
to throw all of his things out when she gets upset about him having too
much stuff he won’t let my mom throw my stuff out.
- apparently trash day is actually Wednesday
- not-quite-crying at work
- getting overheard by a coworker who very kindly offered me a hug and
now dying a little inside of mortification, sweet as it was.
