She did it again

March 18th, 2009 at 01:46 pm

Ok I'm in my room and my mom comes in with the mail and says to me M sent you your check. I say I know I checked this morning and it was deposited, she then says how much did he pay you? I absolutely hate when she does this, it is none of your business or anyone else for that matter how much money I make and besides I am not working so this money is going into my EF account to pay up coming bills, bottom line. But I simply said he paid me for the two weeks and left it at that
On a different note I got two hours in (studying) and actually found a couple more jobs I could apply for. Now I'm going to read "Beneath the Bruises" which is a book on domestic violence

    Great comeback! I wonder why she wants to know? Is she worried about you, or does she want your money?

    Actually CCFree it's both, I know my mom is worried and would like for me to get a job but she is also the type if you get $20 she believes she's entitled to something no matter what. Even Christmas bonuses I had gotten the point where I simply wouldn't tell her when we got bonuses, because she always expects her cut

    That's gotta to be a hard place to be in. I just had a conversation with my mother that perplexed me. The specifics of the situation aren't relevant. In the past my mother has said it might be to my benefit to "play the game" and get monerary assistance from my father (who has in the past had scads of money). I have always said that my pride would prevent me from doing that (and it has).

    I made some comment on "If I would just give up my pride and gravel for hand-outs and 'expect things' I wouldn't feel taken advantage of and the expectation of my husband giving up a full day off would be merited." That was a direct commentary on the way my brother deals with things.

    This is exactly what my mother has suggested that I do. Now beause she will never be supportive me said, "Well, you have gotten 'help' in the past."

    I've come to the conclusion that it cannot matter any more to me because my mother will ALWAYS argue the other side of the coin for whatever reason. Even DH has noticed the odd regard that my parents have for my brother (mother and father alike).

    Sorry to respond so long - this just happened and I guess you're my therapeutic vent! Sorry.

    Sorry to hear this has to be an issue. The less you say the better, it sounds like.
