EXCESSIVE CALLING

Posted by on Oct. 9, 2013 at 8:21 AM

My mother won't stop calling me!!! If I don't answer the phone she calls me repeatedly until I answer or she calls my dad 3 times ... Yesterday she called 11 times in not even 20 minutes... I don't even get a chance to call her back... She cuts into personal time, bath time, dinner time and relaxing time and when I say something I make her upset..she lives in Maryland and my dad, daughter and I moved to Florida.. I've lived away from my mom most of my adult life in the military and she left my dad back in 07 ( after 23 years , they are still married now ). The last 3 years I was in Maryland and trying to get a job so I can move back to Florida. It finally happened this year...I understand she loves and misses us but it's getting a bit ridiculous to me. What do you guys think?

I would tell her off. That is out of hand.

I think you should put your phone on silent and get back with her when you can

Turn off your phone during supper and bath time and such, nothing you do might give her the hint but at least you will be less annoyed. Or try setting up a schedule of when you can FaceTime with her, Sunday afternoons or something

She'll just call my dad's phone but I guess I can tell him not to answer

It's sweet that she's thinking about you, but that is a little excessive.  I get so annoyed when people call me repeatedly.  My parents live far away, and I told them that they should just write me an email if they really feel like sharing something immediately.

Just don't answer until you are ready to speak to her. Have her calls go straight to voicemail.
She sounds manipulative and needy.

She can't do this though. Hurting you is not acceptable.
