By heartbroken - United States
Today, after a huge heartbreak and a night of crying, I wake up to an empty house. I go in the kitchen to make breakfast and see a note on the counter saying "We heard you crying last night and didn't want to hear you complaining this morning, so we went to the mall. -Mom" FML

The next time you hear them having sex, write a note that says "Heard you and dad having sex. You sounded like a donkey taking a soccer ball up the ass. Didn't want to be here for the awkward moment. -(OP's name)"

i agree with drifter. I mean, all night is for sure excessive and not to mention the family is like o shit, emotional train wreck time, hell I don't blame them one bit for leaving.


Just because someone is heartbroken and crys all night over the loss of their relationship, does not mean they are in any way an emo. If you love someone alot, losing them as a boyfriend/girlfriend and not being able to have them in your life the same way you used to is very hard for some people to deal with. So maybe it's beat you should keep your judgements to yourself in future?

There is nothing worse than realizing you don't have the support of your family, the people who should be there for you.
When I was in college I was home for Christmas. My summer job asked me to work my holiday break so I ended up pulling a 12-hour shift on Chrstmas Eve.
I came home exhausted and just in time for the traditional family dinner.
As I walked in the door my mom hollered at me that I'd better shut my fucking mouth because none of them gave a fuck that I had to work all day and they didn't want to hear it.
I'd been about to say how wonderful the food smelled and how great it was to be home.
I was so astonished I didn't know what to say so I didn't say anything.
I got bitched out for that, too. Apparently I was so pissed off that I couldn't bitch about working that I gave them all the silent treatment but quite honestly I just didn't know what to say to them that wouldn't spark a group attack on me, which I got anyway.
Whatever your heartbreak was, OP, I am very sorry for it and I hope you found someone to listen.

Right there with you #13.
Why stay to be shit on?
The point of the story, for those of you who couldn't figure it out, is that sometimes instead of being our biggest supporters, our family members turn out to be the ones who care the least.
13's family cared so little that they fired shit bombs at her before she even did anything. The OP's family cares so little that they staged a mass exodus AND left her a note telling her what they did so they wouldn't have to waste their time being there for her.
I am willing to bet both families expect bankrupt and the OP to listen to their crap; they just don't want to return the favor the way REAL families do.
A big hug from me to the OP and bankrupt. We all deserve to have families who support us; that is what a family SHOULD do.

You are NOT stupid, Pattipan. You just made an error. Everyone makes them.
You must be a very nice person to be so empathetic. I accept your hug, thank you!

Actually, the point was that perhaps the OP's family should have considered waiting until she actually said something before running out like a pack of nasty dogs.
In my case I was actually going to say something NICE to my idiot family. They didn't wait long enough to hear it before lighting into me.
Even if the OP did actually start complaining, would it have killed them to listen for awhile?
She is their blood; what hurts her should hurt them. Part of being a family is to be there for each other, support each other, and listen to each other.
If one of the OP's family members had a heartbreak I bet they would expect her to be supportive but apparently do not feel they need to do the same for her.
This Christmas incident was significant to me because the minute I got home from college they all practically had a fight over who got to cry to me first about their problems and complaints but clearly they felt they were under no obligation to listen to me.
It's about families who treat the members unequally, with some being allowed to do and say as they wish while others are censored.

If it weren't a place for essays, we'd have a character limit on comments. We don't (or perhaps we do, but I've never seen anyone hit it), so let people post how they want to.

Your 'hug hate' is misplaced.
I am the one who is guilty of starting the hugs, not bankrupt.
Sorry my gesture of sympathy to a human being I thought was hurting and could use a lift was so upsetting to you.

Wow. If that had happened to
me I would have flared at them right back, telling them what I was going to say, calling them rude, etc. However, in my family, we make up.
