I want a new family

You know what? I wish the hell I could swap my family in for another one. I am dead serious. Sometimes I really can't stand my family.

My mother is disabled so we have a cleaning service come to clean her house. Mind you, my 34 year old baby brother lives there with his two daughters (9 and 14) and neither of the three of them can keep the house clean. That shit in itself pisses me off but I digress.

We just hired a new service as the previous one was a peice of shit. The new service is really good. They called and gave me a run down on everything they did. It was great.

Well, come to find out, they noticed there was mold on all of the baseboards and my mothers bedroom window was black with mold. That freaked me out because we all know how dangerous and a pain in the ass mold is. Left untreated it will cost THOUSANDS to remove.

I tell my brother to go to the store and get some mold killer and spray around all of the baseboards and moms window. This bastard tells me he'll get to it when he has time and if I am so concerned I need to come out to the house and do the mold removal myself. Bitch YOU live there not me. I told him that then hung up. He so pissed me off. When you moved back into the house to suposedly help mom, that came with responsibility.

I am so ready to just be done with all this and move far...far away from all of their asses.

You know what they say--You can choose your friends but you can't choose your family! I know it sucks, I live 2 and half hours from parents, If you're going to move away--Move farther than that.

Thankfully, since my daughter, her husband, his 16-year-old (now) daughter and their two little ones (came along after they moved here) came here to live with me, if there is anything needing fixed that also requires an extra hand, older daughter's fiance is willing to chip in anytime he can and help. And, the same goes for my son when he is at home. There are times my daughter drives me slightly bonkers - her husband too -but I figure I probably drive them crazier than they do me so it pretty much evens out then. But, I also consider myself very fortunate that she and her husband wanted (and needed) a place to live which enabled me to keep the old homestead going. My grandparents built the place in 1903 and I'd sure hate to lose it now.

That's really frustrating.

Good for you for letting him know what a lazy ass he's being.

Melissa said...

How very frustrating, I can see why you're so upset with your brother. I'm glad you told him what you thought, that usually makes me feel better even if it's just for a fleeting moment.

WTF! He'll get to it when he has time? I can't believe he said that. What is it with men and cleaning houses? And he lives there with your mom. Sorry girl. I feel for you. I hope that situation gets better.

Don said...

AMEN!

I tell my family (dad's side) every other day it seems...that when I leave this city, I am never coming back. Ever. I have never seen so many ignorant people in my life. And I hope they ar reading this. Matter of fact, I think I'll speak on it.

CarmenSinCity said...

Oh my god - what an asshole!!! I hate your brother. What a lazy ass.

Karen said...

That sucks. I have some family like that too.

Unfortunately there are truly selfish people in the world. Born not made. You are evidence of that. He is just purely self serving.

Your poor mother.

His poor kids with that sort of role model.

Poor you having to deal with his shit.

Karma will kick in. I hope it is soon.

Princess Extraordinaire said...

I am sorry your brother is being so callous - it is aweful that he can't even do his fair share around the house - especially given your Mom's condition...hang in there!

Ugh. My brother & SIL live with my mother (who has fibromyalgia, carpel tunnel in her wrist, and battles depression) and sometimes he acts the same exact way. When my hubby asked him why he didn't help my mom by finishing the painting in the living room instead of leaving a bare naked, white plastered wall, his response was, "It's not MY house. I'm only paying rent here." Grrr. So feeling your pain.
