My parents keep arguing
My parents are always mad at each other. My mom's favorite passive aggressive techniques are slamming the door when she goes in or out, mumbling to herself or slamming things around. My dad will mumble things to himself that she doesn't hear but I do. If I confront him about it, he gets mad and says he didn't say anything and gives me a really angry stare. "Usually I hear things like "I'm so sick of this s-" or "dumb M-Fer".
And there is no communication. My grandma keeps asking when we're coming over for mother's day. My mom keeps mentioning this, and having a fit about not wanting to go, but my dad didn't say anything, but just mumbled. Then this morning I hear my mom all mad and it's because my dad asked if they were going today or tomorrow. No communication, they just decide they want to do something and the other one doesn't so has a fit.
Today was the food drive where the mail carrier picks up foods. I had a couple of things I wanted to put out, so last night I put them in a bag on the counter to put in the mail in the morning. Well, my dad gets up at about 6:30 as usual and later he says "I'm going to put this in the mail." Well, my mom was like no, it needs to be in another bag because it'll get ants in it and going on and on so my dad gets mad. Then later he asks me about it and I just say "just put it in the mail."
Plus every day since my dad retires he gets up at 6:30 and watches the news for 3 hours while rubbing his hands together. Then he walks around outside and checks the mail. He eats lunch and then takes a nap for about 2-3 hours. Then gets up and starts drinking beer at 3:30! My mom goes over this with me almost every night to complain about it.
I don't understand what their issue is. I'd be out of here if I could afford it, because it's so stressful. I've been in my room all morning, and really just want to go out and get away for the morning, but I don't know what they're doing.
I'm probably just riled because I didn't sleep well last night and kept having bad dreams.
Underneath the cold November sky, I wait for you... As the pages of my life roll by, I wait for you... I'm so desperate just to see your face, meet me in this broken place...
Be a little brave for a little bit of time.
