Shopping is more important than my child having food to eat!
My older sister is a self-proclaimed shop-aholic. She has even said herself that if a pile of horse shit had a price tag on it, she would stop and look at the price tag on the horse shit! I don't understand it.
Her, my mom, and my DD went out shopping today. I chilled at the house, cleaning it up and just relaxing, cause I didn't want to go shopping and look at a bunch of stuff I can't afford. Apparently they went out to eat afterwards because DD came home with a small plastic take-home restaurant cup. She was showing me the stuff her aunt ( my older sister ) had gotten her and the phone rang. My mom got it and answered.
It was my older sister fussing because my nephew ( HER SON!!!!!! ) was complaining that he was hungry, and that there was no food in the house! I heard her specifically say she had no money for groceries, and wanted to know if she could come up here and get some stuff to cook him supper!
She did come, and I gave her some potatoes, some mac and cheese, some beans, bread and milk, with some apples and a couple bananas. Would you believe she fussed at me because I didn't give her any of the cornflake cookies I had made?! I didn't say a word to her, because I knew it was going to my nephew, and not her.
Before she left, I did tell her one thing. I told her ( very nicely in a calm voice ) that she needed to seek help with her shopping problem if it was so bad that she didn't have money for groceries. She got so pissed off that she flew out of the drive way, spraying gravel EVERYWHERE!
I just don't understand how a person can go out and spend hundreds of dollars on frivilous things that they don't even really need, and then go home and complain that they have no money for food, and complain because their kid is hungry! I've ALWAYS put my DD first in everything, and I've even went days without eating to make sure my DD had food in her stomach.
Do you guys know anyone like that?
