I dyed my nieces roots yesterday, and actually got most of the pee-pee yellow color out of the back section of her hair(she's gone platinum). My brother has been bragging for what seems like months now, about this new contract he helped to land and how he's getting (allegedly) a 50K bonus check out of the deal plus, a promotion.
Do you think I got a "Thank You" or a "Hey, how much do I owe you"? He came to pick her up and didn't even acknowledge me. We've never been close but I've been extremely gracious to his two daughters - consistently. There's a side to me that wants to stop "doing" for them, but that's not fair to them.
I didn't really need the money, but a "Thanks" sure would have been nice, considering I saved him at least a hundred dollars, probably more. Plus, it took several hours when I factor in the time it took to go purchase products.
I just don't understand people like this . . . when my parents are gone, I'm almost certain we won't have a relationship. In a way, I don't care but again, I feel I've been so good to his girls (a friend of mine used to call me their surrogate mother) you would think that he would try to be polite at the very least, even if only for their benefit.
SORRY! I really needed to vent . . .
