Crazy parents

My boyfriend's parents are driving me NUTS! Let me just clarify something before I rant: my boyfriend has four moms. I live with one pair (let's call them Thelma and Carly) and I visit the other pair about once a week (let's call them Patty and Gabi). Thelma and Carly are the ones I live with, and they are starting to get on my nerves. Specifically, Carly is getting on my nerves. She and Thelma own the counseling business that I work for together. Carly is the owner and Thelma is the clinical director. I'm already in an awkward position because I work for them, but I hear things that others don't because I live with them. So when I'm having a personal issue with one of them, I can't say anything to anyone at work because that would be inappropriate.

Anyway, Carly sits on her ass all day while Thelma does all the work. For example, all Carly has done today is take my bf shopping and mess around with her computer. She rarely ever goes to work. Thelma has dealt with countless clients, and is still at work even though it's 7 pm. She'll probably still be there at 8 pm, and then she'll get to come home if she's lucky. Thelma has battled through a divorce, a mentally disabled child, and breast cancer, among other things. She is one of the strongest people I know. After Thelma gets home from work, most nights she still has to cook dinner and clean up the house, because Carly can't be bothered.

Carly sits on her ass all day long, and complains about how much she hurts. She has severe Restless Legs Syndrome and some sort of neurological disorder, but the doctors can't figure out what's wrong. Her body hurts many days, but some days it doesn't. She is constantly complaining about it, and when she does feel good, she'll go and overexert herself and then feel even worse the next day. She never does anything that Thelma asks her to do, even simple things like unloading the dishwasher! Thelma does EVERYTHING. On top of that, she treats Thelma like shit, and treats Thelma's daughter like she's not part of the family. Thelma has told me on numerous occasions that she wants to leave Carly.

The point of this long background story is that Carly is driving me nuts. On top of being lazy, she's also annoying. Her personality is grating, and if I'm in any sort of bad mood, she'll drive me up the wall. On Friday, I accidentally read a text from her to my boyfriend, saying that I was in hot water at work with my boss and that I was getting cocky and bossy. Of course, I know that's not true. And just to be sure, I asked my boss at work today if there is anything I need to work on, and she couldn't think of ANYTHING. So obviously she's lying, trying to turn my bf against me. Seriously lady, if you have a problem with me, say it to ME, not my boyfriend!! God...

I am so glad I'm going back to school in less than two weeks. I only have this week with Thelma and Carly, and then my boyfriend and I will go to live with Patty and Gabi on Saturday this week, until we leave for school. Only four more days with Carly!! I will miss Thelma though. She and I have become close, and we're a lot alike.

Well, I congratulate you if you got through all that!! It was long and possibly boring :) I love you guys, you know that. Stay strong <3


  1. Sounds like a rough situation! Hope the rest of your time there goes by smoothly & quick!

  2. Oh, darling. You poor thing. That must be so stressful. -hug-

  3. That sucks :(
    I can relate! My bf's mom make subtle remarks about me being fat! The bf doesn't even catch on and tries to defend her when I mention it. I've stopped mentioning it. Instead, I'm going to make subtle remarks right back ahahaha!

  4. Ugh, Thelma sounds like one of those whiny people that I detest. The ones that use their illness to their advantage. It's a good thing you only have to live four more days with her! You'll get through it :) xoxo

  5. That sounds crazy. Hang in there. <3

  6. Oh. Mygod. Entitlement complex much? I'm pissed with her and I don't even know her! D:< Shall I teach her the meaning of pain while you beat the snot out of my coworkers? ARGH FUCK! Thelma deserves SO MUCH better!!

    *MASSIVE HUGS for you and Thelma and Thelma's daughter*

  7. Thanks so much for the lovely support. <3
