Aargh! I need to vent.

My dad called. I shouldn't have picked up the phone but I didn't think. I was taught that you answer the phone when someone calls. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

He wanted me to do something NOW. Right NOW. It has to deal with my son and some financial things, but it had to be done NOW. Well, excuse me. I don't have that paperwork handy, my hubby does, so I will take care of that tomorrow, when I have the stuff in front of me. Thank you very much.

You would think I stole his puppy or shot him in the foot!

My dad has gotten into a habit of "telling" me to do something. I have gotten into a habit of saying "NO". Since neither of us will budge, I guess I will have to screen his calls.

Geez, I just wish he would get a job. Taking care of my ill mom is making him a tyrant. Oh yeah, I am 33. Like I really need this!

you need caller ID. Do not answer phones that do not have caller ID, or you don't recognize the phone number. I need to take my own advice too!
