It is long sorry.
I know technology on the mobiles are very important nowadays with internet and communicating being easier now that before, My sister is an lets say is one of the person who uses her mobile and all its applications (Facebook Whatsspa, etc) and she often takes the phone everywhere, (to the bathroom, to go to lunch, , etc) so sometimes I cant even talk to her because she is using the damn phone her husband is the same or even worse. When they come over to the house to visit to have some coffee he cant let go of his phone cause he is playing or checking internet, while we are eating for me I found that very rude, my sister is more looking like him in that field.
I for instance im the total opposite. Even if I have a smart phone I don’t use internet as much as other people cause I don’t even pay internet for my phone, I do have applications and I use them from time to time but Im not like my sister who uses it so so often. I can use internet when I go to places that have WI FI, like my home or at work, so I don’t feel the need to pay internet on my phone if I have WI FI available and so far that is the way I have use my internet or keep in touch with friends over Whatsapp or Facebook.
The thing is my sister wants me to pay internet for my phone to stay more in touch with me or our brother with Whatassp, if she wanted to say something urgent. I never wanted to pay internet so what and she gets mad cause I don’t have it that how come I have a smart phone and I don’t ake advantage of the applications. Well I have used internet like I said but with WIFI and it has worked so far fine with me but my sister do not get that and question me how come!!
But also if I put internet on my phone I be paying more at my monthly bill of my phone and at this moment I pay so little cause I don’t use my phone as often as other people. I do text and call and receive calls but only the necessary ones I need to do and I send text messages (with no internet) the necessary ones and so far good for me
I mean at work I use the WI FI (like all the employees use it from time to time9 when I get home I use the WIFI at home. And then I ask myself if my sister wants to keep in touch closely with my brother and me with Whatassp for urgent messages it takes more time to write a message that making a call right away. Making a call it is quicker and it is more personal. Of course if my sister wants to say something to me that she does not want other people to listen I do understand the part of text messaging but she can text message me with SMS messaging and not necessary with Whatassp cause for Whatassp u need internet and I don’t have internet but I can receive SMS messaging with no internet required and she can do it to, but no she wants Whatassp and she wants me to install Internet on my phone right away cause it is urgent I do I so.
Like I mentioned if I put internet I be paying double than what I am currently paying with no internet. Currently my phone bill do not even exceed the $9, it can be even less than that and If I put internet on my phone I be paying around $18 each month( the fee won’t change in the phone company Im registered). Im tired my sister telling me what to do and not what to do with things that are mine.
For instance, my dad passed away past feb due to cancer and he left all his kids some money. Since my sister do have more expenses than me, because she is married, she has a house, she has a car, she also has another house but for rent, she spends more money than I am. Im always known in my family to be a saver, my dad was similar like me in that field with certain things. He never bought the latest phone or the latest brand new car, he barely buy new clothes often cause the one he had still were wearable. Of course he could buy some shirts and pants but it was not that often my dad lest say was a man from the old school and in fact I am I don’t know if I took that out of him to buy things cause I need them not out of impulse, like my sister often do. My mom is similar also like me and my dad but only in certain things.
For example each December my sister spend holidays out of the country because her husband likes to spend holidays in other countries, he enjoys doing that., I never do that and my parents never did that cause my dad always said it is a lot of money to travel even if he could afford a trip for him my mom and myself at least once, but my brother in law likes to do it each December and has been doing it for the past 5 yrs. This year is the same my sister re going to our aunts house in Los Angeles and I was thinking why my sister do not invite mom to join her so she can also enjoy a different environment away from the house for some days , and also she be visiting her sister, but no.. my sister never even mention the word invite to mom and never did when my dad was alive, like saying lets all take a trip together that be fun, She never did that.
This Christmas it will be hard for us cause it be our first Christmas without dad and mom and I or my brother do not have plans to go out so we were staying home and by staying home my mom will be sadder to remember dad like that, while my sister will be enjoying her time with her husband in Los Angeles. My sister does not even invite me to go with her to any trip either much less she does it with mom but her husband do take his kids when he wants his kids to join him, (My brother in law has kids from a previous marriage, he does not have kids with my sister, he already had vasectomy)
My sister tells me why don’t u spend some of the money dad left you on some tech gadgets, like change your phone for a new one, or buy yourself a tablet, or spend the money on a new stereo or new TV for yourself and stop using moms TV. I have told her no thanks cause I don’t need that stuff Im ok with the things I have and If I want to spend it on things perhaps some day but currently I do not need them. First of all, I don’t need a tv at my own home cause in the house we have 3 tv sets (one in the kitchen, one in my mom bedroom and the other on me in the living room). SO why I need one on in my room, If I can easily use any of the other ones.
Then a stereo for myself. No We have one at home and I use that one, cause im not really a fan of using a stereo everyday like teenagers do, they cant live without listening to the radio and listen to music. I do listen to music and I like music but I listen it form the stereo wwe have at home but only from time to time when Im in the mood to listen to music and that is not all the time. My sister and I never grow up having a TV set at our room, my parents never allow us to have a tV in our own rooms we had to watch TV from either their TV at their room or the tV that was in the living room, and I got used to that.
The only thing I did so far is invest part of the money my dad left me was to install a new closet at my room because that was very necessary, since the closet I was using was the same I had been using since I was little and I shared room with my older sister. The closet was never changed at all until now that the room belongs to me and the closet is all mine.
In summary my sister wants to dictates me now the things I need to do, she believes im not doing things correctly even taking care of mom, now that she is a widower. She has to check up on me often If I am doing this and that to mom, if Im watching her or not, because since she does not live at home she cant know if mom is ok or not. Im not that stupid to leave my mom neglected.
