Leave me alone

April 17th, 2008 at 06:51 pm

My mom keeps bugging me.Today was her birthday and I wished her a happy birthday, but some kind of a way she is going to get the $20 that I normally spend for her birthday out of me
First she demanded that I give her money instead of taking her out to eat and I said no, now she wants to go out to eat. How come she can not understand that I do not have money to waste which includes eating out/gifts. Next month tuition is going to cost me about $1500, in addition to another $300 for my car insurance plus $200 to get my eyes checked...not to mention my books
My uncle gave her some money yesterday and she gave it back, and she's bugging me for $20 or so....just leave me alone

    I can't imagine asking one of my kids for a gift, money, or to pay for a meal...wow. I am at a loss for words...

    You have to move. The guilt trips only get worse.

    When your mother is dead and gone your are going to miss her, so take her out and give her a gift, don't act like a sorry excuse for a daughter.

    First of all I love my mother, and second of all I am long shot from being a sorry excuse for a daughter. Before you make comments on things you obviously know little about you should keep your comments to yourself. In addition, I do way more than I should for my mother...and not because of obligation. Let me remind you I work at a senior facility and see how people treat their parents, which is a constant reminder of what I should not do to mine, let alone would even think about. My fathter who I love the same would never demand money, he would simply be happy with what ever I did..that is my point, which you clearly missed. Further more, it is not the $20 it is her attitude.

    I don't know when julio joined up but he should have read your posts going way back and he wouldn't question the type of daughter that you are.

    The above comment from that poster is tha same comment we hear from family members. It's not about love. It's about what can you give me. It's a guilt thing. My father-in-law and mother-in-law pull the same line on their kids to the exclusion that their children don't want to be around them. My mother on the other hand has always given without ever asking anything in return. I have more respect for her because it has been done in love.

    My dad and your are mom are the same, he doesn’t mind and never ask for anything in return. But my mom on the other hand is totally different she expects something not matter what. It’s too much to even discuss, thanks for your understanding
