Elderly Father Demands Attention

by Lisa
(USA)

I'm living with my boyfriend and dad.. Who is his biological dad. I just helped Todd (son) through his divorce and I had to leave the house I was living in (with my mom..I've never married or had kids) so he both lived with his dad.


It has been a year now since I have lived here. I am a recovering alcoholic and haven't worked in a while. Starting a new job today and feel excited and in control.

Last night after a long day of Todd and I shopping all over the city to find the proper attire for my "Big Day" we arrived at house.

I sighed and took a deep breath. "Todd, let's take the trash out and bagged leaves, from side of house, to curb.

I want to go inside, look at and try on work "STUFF" yes, I said stuff...in fact ..I'm not being graded so I don't care about typos at this point.

His dad enters kitchen and asks a few questions...I ignore because I had to go to the bathroom. His dad starts asking me if I will do him a favor the moment I stepped out of basement bathroom... He complains of knee pains 24/7. I ran upstairs "Mad".

I have been working non stop around this house to help humans it's time for me. I use to get upset telling Todd he should stick up for me.

He said that I should do it myself. So I say, Dad, we are worn out from looking all day for proper work gear what do you need?

He wanted a Christmas present wrapped. It's November 29. I stood up for myself and told him I was tired. He got up in my body space and said a rude comment about how I needed to get use to it because that is what I will be doing and when I commented again he said I better not bitch to my boss.

I said are just serious right now??? I yelled that I had more class then that. Todd just blew it off.
