hullo tumblr. this is somewhat of a rant against my father so just skip by it.
I graduated from university on June 6th of this year. in the mail we received two tickets, one for each parents and could have requested more if they were available. I didn’t know of that option until it was too late. I asked my dad if he was going and he said he’d let me know in a few days because he was unsure if he could take the afternoon off. Eventually he let me know that he was going. This meant that my mom would have to figure out a way to go downtown by herself because my dad is so self-centered and an arrogant person to even consider picking her up. I’ll just let this important information slide in: my mom has osteoporosis, scoliosis, and arthritis in nearly every joint of her body. She is a trooper but she cannot take the subway even if I could go with her so that was out of the question. She also cannot drive for prolonged periods of time and gets lost a bit too easy; even my dad had problems parking and had to park 4 blocks from the hall and walk.
Oh yeah, and it was raining hard that day. If you’ve ever met someone with even the slightest of bone problems they’ll make mention of the rain making the pain worse.
So with all these factors against her and the fact that my dad lied to me and said he’d be taking the subway down when in fact changed his mind last minute and drove down I understood why she chose not to go. I told her prior that I would prefer to just see her after for dinner and to watch movies at home than worry about her struggling to get down there. When she called after the ceremony to congratulate me and said we’d order pizza for dinner I was happy as hell.
Fast forward today where, a week and a half has passed and my dad tells me he’s “disgusted” and “horribly disappointed” in her for not making it down makes me want snap at him. He tries to make himself look like the better parent by pointing out her flaws, EVEN with something I talked with her about and told her it was fine if she didn’t go. He has absolutely no right to talk bad about the woman who’s been raising me on her own since I was six years old and paying for a good chunk of things, while he goes and cuts off child support because he “doesn’t have to pay anymore”.
I’m sick of this world and people who have the need to throw others under the bus to make themselves feel and look better. Grow up.
waste of a day, waste of a day!
love waiting around for people to tell me when we can go out when we were supposed to over three hours ago
