Since my dad got married in July, I have decided that I would stay out of that situation. There is nothing that I can do or say….so I leave it alone. The fact that I was moving that next month as the perfect scenario for it all. They could have their rushed marriage and I wouldn’t have to witness it. Seems like the more I try to stay out of it, the more I hear crap about it. I have more than a few gripes with her.
1. The honeymoon phase is over.
SERIOUSLY?!?!? These folks have been married for 5 months. This has got to be the shortest honeymoon phase that I have ever seen. It’s not like they have been together for a long time. Hell they just met in January. This January. Of 2011. Every time I talk to my dad on the phone, he’s in the doghouse for this, that, or the other thing. This just makes me sound like a genius when I asked what the rush was. She was all infatuated with his ass while they were dating, but now she apparently doesn’t like the man that my dad is. *side eye* She doesn’t like that he talks a lot to people. My dad will talk to a tree….that’s the kinda guy he is. He never meets a stranger. Let me be the first to say that MY MOTHER loved him for who he was. Talking too damn much and all. She doesn’t know why he likes to watch the news so much because that stuff doesn’t have anything to do with him. *record scratch* Why the hell are you 44 years old
saying stupid shit like that thinking that things that happen in the world around you don’t impact you? She has GOT to be the simplest person I have ever met.
2. She is very insecure.
She doesn’t like for my dad to have any interactions with people of the opposite sex. NONE. No women should call him on the phone for any reason. He shouldn’t look at other women (as if he lived in a world where only she lived). My dad is a shade tree mechanic in his spare time. He can’t even work on cars that are owned by women, unless they belong to her. *sighs*
3. She has a problem with him giving any financial help to his children.
Now THIS one is the one that grinds my gears. She is financially irresponsible…..a new development since they’ve been together. She has been used to taking care of all the bills for her own house (which he lives now). Apparently he’s responsible for taking care of everything while she goes out to buy $300 Coach purses. He is also supposed to take care of her 2 children that live there too. But when his own children need something, that becomes a problem. She has said that I wasn’t raised right because I live with a man who isn’t married. I almost went to jail over that statement. This was spoken from a woman who has two children with two different fathers and my dad is her FIRST husband. *sighs* I’m a daddy’s girl, even with all this mess. My dad has my back without me having to ask….so if I need help of any type, he will be there. She actually got snapped on for this comment.
For these reasons, that bitch is not my stepmother…she’s my dad’s wife. A stepmother gets in there and at least TRIES to get to know her stepchildren. She gets in there with my brother but she tries to isolate me. She knows that I am not down with the bullshit. I don’t fake the funk with anybody, especially not with anybody that I don’t think will stick around long. She doesn’t think I know all of this stuff. I let her live Thanksgiving, but Christmas…..stay tuned. She has used all three of her strikes up with me…..I wonder if she knows it…..
