Ugh! Technology is no longer my friend! I helped my sister and mom get set up with Skype so we could all 'see' each other and chat online. Last night, as I was talking with my sister, she inadvertently accepted a Skype call from my mom which activated the voice over IP -- My mom could hear my sister's side of our conversation!!
My mom has always been a short-tempered woman and as she has gotten older, she has become increasingly angry with life. Although she's aware of this, my sister and I still use 'kid glove' approaches with her - we rarely speak to my mom about her anger issues. But last night, as my sister and I were having a typical discussion about 'our mom, the psycho', my mom overheard our conversation and is so upset she won't take our calls now....and it's almost Christmas! My dad called my sister and chewed her out for hurting my mom's feelings. My sister and I feel just awful about it. Any advice?
