Hello, OP here! The family that owns the dog is out of town currently due to Thanksgiving and all that, which is why they need someone to walk the dog. I take care of other things too of course, like feeding, making sure he goes to bed, etc but it's mostly just letting him get his exercise.

Don't let her stop you op. Tell her it's your job and you made a commitment to your neighbours. (Parents usually understand commitment issues). Also tell her that the dog needs to be let out that much and may have an accident in their house if you don't go. Don't let her stop you.

It wouldn't have sounded harsch, had you not called her a bitch. But otherwise i agree.

Be DOGmatic and just tell her why.

That's what my mom said about my video games (said the 20 year old PS4 addict)

If you are a PS4 addict, you are actually obsessed with it. So your mother is actually correct, especially if you mean "addict" in the literal sense.

I wouldn't let you play video games either. But because you're a console peasant, not because you're an addict.

Not everyone can afford gaming level PC's, y'know. Most of the people (myself included) that play mostly on consoles do so because gaming computers are distressingly expensive.

I don't care what you play on, personally, but if, for example, you owned all 3 modern consoles (Wii U, Xbox One, PS4), you've probably paid more than you need for, at worst, a decent gaming PC, or, if you know how to pick your parts, a gaming PC that outclasses all 3.

Hah, I wish I had all three of the new gens- I don't even have one of them because they're too expensive. Console prices drop faster than the prices of computers or even computer prices, at least in the area I live in and the places nearby enough to shop. That said, PCs are probably the better long term investment, it's just that the cost upfront is so damn high.

Are you really so insecure with yourself that you feel compelled to stroke your ego over what machine you use to play a video game? Just play the fucking thing and get over yourself! Mein Gott, you're worse than Chevy fanatics.

I get the feeling this person combs the internet waiting for people to mention they have a console, just so they can get all smarmy about their PC. As if they're expecting the console users to be all 'they're right, I have chosen the wrong machine to enjoy playing games on, my life is worthless'.

Am I the only one that thinks it's weird they don't walk their own dog?

I can understand the elderly aspect, but otherwise they probably shouldn't have a dog if they can't take care of it themselves.

They could also be young but physically disabled, with the dog being emotional support for them. Or just not have the time to take clothe dog on long walks to expend excess energy, but otherwise take care of them. Plus, they at least pay someone to take care of the aspect they don't themself, instead of leaving the need neglected.

Nah, that was the first conclusion I jumped to, too, 35, but not everyone on FML is American. Other countries don't celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday.

my parents' dogs have a full bedtime routine. they go outside one last time, get full food dishes, and each get a treat that they take to their "rooms". Gigi sleeps on the living room couch with a gate blocking the door frame, and Puppi sleeps in my mom's room on blankets. if it isn't done just right they freak out. maybe my parents' dogs aren't the only ones like this.

45- Before my dogs passed away they were on bedtime routines as well. They'd go "hurry up" one last time, give some loves to everyone in the house, then go to their separate crates and get a bedtime treat. For 15 years they did it every single night, and would also get upset if it wasn't done correctly.
