My SO has a father who uses him and only calls or comes around when he wants something. My mother recently asked us to move some furniture for her. We agreed so she called yesterday to see what time we wanted to do it. My SO became upset and seems to think that she is using or being ungrateful because she asked what time. He thinks she thinks that I am suppose to jump everytime she wants something. He seems to see my mother in the same light that his father is. Only, my mother isn't like that. She simply likes to keep a schedule, that's all. How can I make him see that my mother is nothing like his father?Answer Question

I'm betting once he calms down he'll realize that she was not out of line in asking what most would so she could prepare herself for you to get there. I would calmly talk to him and try to sooth his resentment for his father is being misdirected at you mom. Good luck hon.
