Mom and I were driving home from the casino. Long story, short. She has a major gambling addiction. Dad says she's just like Grandpa, but as far as I could tell Grandpa cared about his family... yeah he made some mistakes, but he learned from them. I wish I could say the same for Mom, but unfortunately I can't. She cares more about gambling than anything else. Even the things that should be important to her like eating and sleeping.
But I'm totally digressing... we were on the freeway talking about the trip I took with Dad. When all of a sudden she just started saying that my Aunt and Cousins only liked me cause I was visiting them and they don't really know me. Blah, Blah, Blah. Now anyone who knows me knows I'm not about to let that slide... I don't care who says it.
So I told Mom the truth. She's the one nobody likes. She's the reason nobody comes around. Everyone knows how paranoid she is. They're tired of her accusing them of stealing. On top of that my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins aren't stupid. They know Mom's sending me to spy on them.
Of course Mom twisted it around, acting stupid. "I never said that. Where do you get those things?"
I told her she can lie to herself, but she can't lie to me. I know how she truly is... our whole family knows how she truly is. Not only have they talked to me about it multiple times, but they also talked to Dad about it multiple times. Mom's the only one too stupid or too blind to realize it.
And when you think about it that's pretty sad...
