We just had a little snit like a baby that doesn't want it's strained peas, and so we shoved them all to the floor.
I don't know that many people that would walk away from an ATM that is shooting out cash. Like we would get tired of stuffing our pockets full and walk away.
Sorry folks. I have to go work for a living so someone else will have to enrich themselves by standing here breaking their backs shoving cash in a bag.
At least my mother doesn't resort to the ATM tactic. Everybody she knows is aware there is some bastard like son that lives in the shadows and that my mother didn't have jack to do with who he became.That doesn't stop her from the back end tactics.
Oh me and Q were chugging along so fine until his ex wife #2 poisoned him against me. She's part of the reason my ex-wife is my ex-wife. And my ex never said a bad word about my mother until I went NC.
We wouldn't spend years after trying to make sense of what happened if we are as cold and calculated as they.
We would have slammed them with the devalue and discard just as hard as they slammed us..
Like more D&D is the thing that will get a person back in line after a life of abuse.
We may have gone no contact but we don't like it.
And that's what they don't get.
They say,"I treated my kids like shit but I paid them well for the time they were tied to my whipping post." "What more can you ask for?"
You can't put a price on sanity. But if my sanity is directly proportional to the time and distance I put between us, then so be it.
Every thing is a game to them. Even with their sons and daughters. Even with us their has to be a clear cut winner and loser. I can't say who won or lost with my mother, but no one I know of will get any where near her.
I took my mother to a funeral for a friend of hers in 2007. The obviously distraught daughter came up and said she was glad to see my mother.
My mother did a little curtsy and said ,"this old thing?"
"It's just something I threw on at the last minute."
I was mortified.
With such a glaring example of their detachment, I still ask myself if they are that out of touch with reality.
Do they really believe their own bullshit ?
The answer to that would be yes.
