Son is Better than the Daughter

by Jane
(Falls Church)

They have been great parents to me, I guess they come to me because my sister in law is too mean.
My parents really love their son to a point it just does matter if he come to see them or not. They are mad since I told them to get a caretaker.


I have a full time job and my family to care for. I am exhausted by the time I am home form work.

My mom said she does not want to spend all her money on my dad; she need the money to get thru her old age. My dad is not highly motivated; he sat there and watching TV all day, now he can not move very well.
It made me real mad that my brother does not contribute labor or finance. He is 12 years older than me, live in California and have plenty of vacation time and money.

He send me pictures of his vacations and glow about social outing with his friends. The irony is my mom and dad told me many times, even one time on the way to the doctors that they will follow my brothers advice and they really do not like me; since I am the bad one telling them to get a caretaker and find some way to exercise etc.
