I got into it with my nephew tonight. He's 14 and a smart ass, know it all, punk. He doesn't listen to anybody and has no respect for anyone or anyone's property.
My parents are both pushovers. They don't make him listen to anything. I am sick and tired of him running the show at their house. The deal was to have Sundays the day to bring my son over, and have my nephew stay home. Well naturally she went against that because he wanted to come over and cut firewood all day. So of course I had to listen to the mouthiness and general bull$hit all day long because he only cut firewood for about
Well finally I had enough of listening to his crap all darn day. Before I went home, he was tearing up the 3-wheeler which I like to give my son rides on. The smart ass was mouthing off and swearing at me when I told him to stop going up and down the road and ruining the tires. Well he did not like that and started mouthing off. I shoved him and smacked him in the face out in the driveway.
Of course my mom comes to his defense. The little angel can do no wrong after all. She starts yelling at me and telling me to quit acting like a little kid and "why don't you....." and I said, "what, go home right?" She didn't say it but that's what she meant, but she has said in the past she'd never tell her kids to leave. So anyway it kept going and I ended up telling her "F--- you!" and I got in the car and went home.
Well my dad told me she was crying because I said that. I talked to my sister and explained the situation and apologized for getting into it with her son. Then tonight I called my mom and apologized for saying "F--- you" and she won't accept my apology. She told me "I'm sorry too that you said that." She told me that I cut her to the core and she never thought I'd be telling her that at this age. She said she is not going into it anymore and was going to bed. I feel bad, I don't want anything to happen to her. She is under a lot of stress and I don't want to add to it. I have tried to overlook my nephew's crap. I even took him to the store today. But it's just the constant crap. What am I supposed to do? There's only so much one person can stand.
My mom never comes down hard on my nephew at all, but when we were kids we had to always watch our mouths, be good little church girls, etc. Now it's just whatever goes. My dad will say something about
my nephew but then he'll be on my mom's crap list right next to me. My dad and I pretty much feel the same. We are disgusted.
My mom gets upset with my dad because he goes in his room when my nephew comes around but who could blame him? I could go on and on about
the crap that goes on over there but I'd be here typing all night. I just don't feel good about
my mom and I arguing. I guess I can understand why my mom would be upset with me about
the episode tonight but it goes way beyond that. It's just how everything I have ever said has meant nothing and rolled off her back. She has never really stuck up for me. Every time I've argued with somebody, it has always been my fault. She can never apologize for anything, at least I apologized.
I guess I just needed to vent a little bit.
