Wow! I can't believe this got published! To fill you guys in, my stepdad is just going through a rough time and it's taking its toll on my mom. She is better now and congratulated us both! Thanks to everyone who congratulated us as well! (I'm not sure if FML will show my OP-ness because I'm using the mobile app. If it doesn't, I promise I'm not a troll) :)

You must've been a right bore, hence your mother felt the need to hang up on you

Congratulations on your engagement OP! I'm sorry your mom's having a rough time, but I'm glad to hear she's come around. I hope everything work out for her, and I wish you all the happiness in the world with your future hubby!

Congrats on your engagement! It's also a great time to show empathy and support for your mom and to help her remember her worth is so much more than a job or a relationship.

Who would want Morgan Freeman as a stepfather?

Glad your mom is OK, op. It sounds like she's just really stressed. Hopefully your engagement will offer a nice distraction so you two can have a bit of fun together making some plans. :)

You know, that's something I've been wondering for a while. Do the FML mods have some way of making sure that whoever is doing the follow-up really is the OP? When someone posts on an anonymous FML claiming to be the OP does anyone bother to check and see whether or not they're bullshitting everyone? Just something I've been curious about.

it was her mom's choice to work where she is and also her choice to get married to whoever she's married to add to that she's self centered and an attention whore f OPs life and her mom deserves it
