So, my mom called me yesterday evening and wanted to know if I could keep my brother overnight. She was having people come to her house early this morning to put a new roof on and couldn't leave him there by hisself (although she normally does) because she and my stepdad both work during the day. Without hesitation, I agreed. Then, I get to her house and they tell me I have to take the dog too. Ok, I didn't expect that, but it's not that big of a deal. I can handle it. However, when I first got there, I noticed that my brother is holding a bird. Apparently, he shot this bird with his BB gun and he was trying to save it's life. He put a band-aid over where the BB went in. My mom tells me that I have to take my brother, the dog, and the bird! I was reluctant, but I agreed. As if my day couldn't get any worse, my brother decides to hold the bird on the car ride back to my house and the damn bird gets loose, goes under my feet (while I'm driving) and up into the vehicle! We were not able to find the bird. Considering how hot it was yesterday and today, I'm sure it's dead. I was a little upset with all that, but it's nothing that I can't handle. Here's why I'm pissed off:
My mom said she was going to come get my brother as soon as she got off work. Her shift ends at 2:00pm. She calls me from a blocked number at 3:00pm and says that she's still at work and won't be off until 5:00p, Ok, I know my mom well enough to know that the bitch is lying. I asked her "why do you have to lie to me?" and she just starts laughing and promises me that she will come after 5:00pm. I'm not stupid, I know what she's doing. She's either out fucking a man that's NOT her husband or she's getting high with her trailer trash friends. She calls me from her house phone at 4:45pm and tells me that she's going shopping with her friend and that my stepdad is on his way to pick my brother up. ummmm, that was almost 2 hours ago! He's still not here yet. I don't mind watching my brother, but he is very anti-social and he does not like being away from his home. I told my mom that he was getting bored and ready to leave. She just doesn't care. This is not the first time that she's done this to me. She will get me to watch him "just for a few hours", but completely take advantage of it. I can't stand it. It makes me not want to help her at all.
