My mum got out of surgery for a hip operation about an hour or two ago. I can't do anything but sit around waiting for news which doesn't seem to be forthcoming...

Also, I keep having to deal with endless cold calls. Ughr.

I'll keep it concise.

My boss is an entitled idiot that goes into martyr mode every time she has to do something herself. She may be older than me and have management experience but no college, but I have caseworker experience (of which she has none and this is the profession we're in) and I've completed my bachelors so she can suck it.

We're in moving limbo waiting for final paperwork to come through and trying to pay bills down and save money at the same time so we can move at the end of the summer. Waiting sucks major balls.

Best of luck to your mom. I imagine that's not a particularly enjoyable experience.

Thanks. I just got back from visiting her in the hospital. They're planning to move her to the main ward (she's still in the one attached to the operating theater) tomorrow morning, if the anesthetist agrees. Not much chance of her being discharged until next week though.

"Swag." If that word had a face, I would punch it.

Best wishes to your mom, Bisected.

I appreciate the thought, but if she walks like that I think her physio'll have a fit. ¨_¨

I need to have a talk with someone about why they shouldn't eat food that isn't theirs. Especially if its the last two pieces of bread except the heels and now I can't make a sandwich for lunch. You have your own damn bread that I am forbidden to use and I know it wasn't Meghan because she would have replaced it! And its wheat bread, which she hates. Also, touch my hagan daz again without asking and I will stab you with my spork.

Also, put your pan in the sink or better yet - WASH IT.

And I am so close to raiding your room for dishes but I am scared at what might be growing on them at this point.

You know what sucks? Double standards.

If my mom dismisses whatever it is I'm telling her because she is allegedly having a bad day, it's like, alright.

If I come home from x activities in a pissy mood, it's not, "Alright, I'll just let her chill out for a while", it's "OH MY GOD, WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS IN SUCH A BITCHY MOOD? GET REAL".

Uh...

So once again it's going to be a mother's day weekend from hell for me. I'd planned to go to Mom's house to help her with a weekend of garden work (not even because I particularly WANT to, but she offered me some money for it, which I need, and she never wants "Stuff", she'd rather just have a day of free labour out of someone because she's so busy).
So then I find out that she's had her bank account frozen because of an issue with a bounced cheque from one of her clients (SHE cashed it and it bounced) and has been trying to fix things for the last few days. So, no money, for me or for anything else she or I need for the weekend, at least not anytime soon. THEN, I find out that she's breaking up with her boyfriend. Great, that's thrown me for a giant loop in terms of getting my cosplay work done since I would stay at his house in the city and still be able to go to work and ballet while getting sewing done. Can't do that at Mom's house because she's a forty-minute drive from the city and I don't drive. And of course it's put her into a shitty mood.
So add those two problems, AND of course throw in her mood with it. Not only did most plans get screwed over, she's also yelling her frustrations out at me every ten fucking minutes.

JUST LIKE LAST YEAR.
AND THE YEAR BEFORE THAT.
AND THE YEAR BEFORE THAT.
Seriously, I swear the fuck to god, I am NEVER coming near Mom on Mother's day anymore.

Yeah, mine is from Facebook. I don't mind talking if someone want to talk, but wish people wouldn't message me if they barely say anything. Wonder if the person is like that with everyone, or just me. 2 of our recent conversations if you could call it that...

1st conversation
Person: hey
Me: sup
Person: not much you?
Me: About the same, about to play a game
Person: What game?
Me: Injustice. I think I have like 1 or 2 chapters left. I have been lazy with my games
End conversation out of nowhere

2nd conversation
Person: yo
Me: what's up?
Person: Are you going to the con next week?
Me: Yep, sure am! I'll be back in like 30 minutes, eating dinner
Person: ok
Me: Back from eating finally
End conversation even though person is still online on Facebook and posting things and commenting on things :/

Just annoys the hell out of me when it seems like someone wants to talk and then nothing person just stops talking after barely any messages

Oh I get that same shit all the time..No matter who I talk to..It never fails..
Here's a good one I had with a "friend" a while back..

Them: Hey
Me: Hey what's up?
Them: Nothing much, I got great news!! I got a new job!!
Me: Oh awesome, Where at?
........That was the last time I heard from them....

Yea..I'm like, you gotta be kidding........
Since I don't have facebook I don't get to see if so and so is still on posting stuff..But I know her brother..Or, we use to hang out anyway before he became a back stabber (this happened like over a year ago)..He was texting her, obviously, after that..Yet I never heard from her again..

My brother has a job and is completely capable of getting his own damn groceries but when my mom gets groceries she pretty much only gets food for him and gets pissed when I even ask and she just told me to look through my grandma's pantry which I did months ago.

I don't have a job or anything and there is literally nothing in the house that I can eat.

I'm painfully shy and socially stunted and I have no idea how to talk to people one on one without sounding like a huge weirdo or feeling incredibly uncomfortable. I like people and all but I just have no idea how to deal with them and I always feel like some sort of alien trying to pretend to be a normal person.
