Ready to Scream

by Carol
(OKC,OK)

Both parents are there 80s. Mom complains all the time that my dad is lazy. He wants to play on the computer for 4 to 5 hours. She does all the yard work but cutting the grass. Dad cuts 2.5 acres in 30 minutes. And that is all he will do. Mom bitches to me all the time about him not doing anything. I have tried to go out and do work for them. I still have to work and work a ten hour a day job 4 days a week in the heat.


They live an hour drive from where I live. When I go out to their house then I get it from the both of them. Mom about what dad won't do and Dad about mom bitching. I have 2 siblings that live in town and they don't want to be around it. Mom is bitter because she wanted to move 10 years ago and Dad wanted a place for all us kids(4 other siblings) to stay for the holidays. I feel like I am being sucked into a hole.

    Well, if you've got siblings, at least you have someone else to be angry at. I'm an only child of divorced parents. Dad is 95 and gentle as a lamb.
