Gossip

By forever alone - 09/01/2022 20:01

Today, I was feeling very sad and alone, so I went to see my mom. I was there for over two hours, but she was on the phone gossiping with her church hens for about an hour and 45 minutes. Then she wonders why I hardly ever visit. FML

Did she know you were coming? Is she supposed to drop everything because you were there? You sound a little bratty for a grown woman.

Sometimes parents can be selfish or at least inconsiderate. Sometimes children of any age can be selfish or inconsiderate. We’re all human, sometimes we don’t live up to each other’s expectations. Before just dropping by, call no matter how close you are. That way Mom knows you are coming by and has the opportunity to be ready for that. It might help in the future. Of course, it’s possible that mom got a call from a friend with hot gossip while you were there and didn’t realize you needed her attention. It’s also possible that Mom is either not that good at mothering her adult children or that OP was more needy than Mom was ready to deal with.

You got 15 minutes. How much more do you need?

I've been reading about 20 FML stories and still don't get this : what's "OP" ?

Probably because you refer to her friends as "hens."
