Blah blah blahhhhh
Sarah’s pissed because mom sent us a package with “a very special surprise in it you will not be disappointed” and she got all excited and it turned out to be pillows but I mean of course I’m pretty sure that’s a normal mom thing she should have especially known not to expect anything huge what with our mom having a freaking brain injury
SO Sarah was complaining about how she didn’t send any money and how on the phone she had told her that she would be sending each of us $200 and she was all upset because “that’s barely anything” shut the fuck up man she sent Sarah $100 just last week and Sarah spent it ALL on pizza takeout and food
Anyways I was talking to dad about how mom cancelled her trip and he sort of sighed and was silent and I was like “Let me guess you’re relieved because you don’t want to see her but you also feel a bit guilty for that relief because she’s obviously not feeling well at all and a little part of you is wondering how close she is to hitting the sack for good” and he was like “Very very close but you missed one thing” and I was like “Oh now you’re worried because you were banking on her taking us shopping and you don’t know how you’re going to afford taking three girls shopping for new clothes” and he was like “Yep”
So on one hand it’s really fucking shitty that Sarah is bitching about this and how no amount of money is ever good enough for her (Like, fuck, mom bought her TWO prom dresses cos she didn’t really like the first one and she didn’t even end up going anyways) and she should be more grateful that mom is sending her $200.
But on the other hand for a woman who has millions upon millions of dollars in the bank and has never payed child support it’s also shitty that she doesn’t offer more financial support to the family in general, especially my dad
God damn it reasonable balance is something that is just never going to happen in this family
