My mom sent me a text today and I really don't know how to reply back without getting into a fight with her. I was in need of a bigger table and we just moved in our new house so money was a little tight so couldn't afford to go out and buy a new dining table, so my mom said she give me her table she didn't need it anymore so when we were moving we went and picked it up and took it home. The next day my mom mentions to me she wanted $100 for it, I wish she would of said something the day we got it because we didnt have the extra to spare so she said I could pay her in a couple of weeks. Well today she sent me a message saying "hi it's your mom your coming in the morning to give me $100 for the table and lending me $100" no please no thank you no nothing just very demanding. I told her earlier this week I would be by Friday with money for the table and I wasnt sure if I could lend the money I had to wait and see because my DH and I are going to Canada's wonderland Saturday I have to do go grocery shopping Friday and pay some bills so I don't think I can and after that text I shouldn't it was rude of her. My mom always has been like that though anything she doesn't want and thinks I might want it she doesn't give it she wants money, okay for some things I understand because she cost alot and some things are just a little ridiculous like she thought I would like her simple black round coffee table she wanted $20 for it when she didnt even pay that much, a DVD VCR combo she wanted $50 for it and funny thing is I bought that for her for Christmas, she had 20 Dora movies that my sister grew out of and she knows my boys like Dora and wanted $200 for them, and a box of some Dora toys she wanted $75 for them. I know all of these things cost money but things do lose their value and she would ask for a lot of money for the things she no longer wants especially to ask her own daughter to pay for. And one thing ill never forget was few years ago I was sick and I had no soup and my ex was at work I couldn't get to the store my mom was in town and I asked her if she could pick me up a can of soup which is only 69 cents now my wallet was in my van which was at my ex job and you think I would have change kicking around I didn't cause of course my mom wanted her darn 69 cents back yep this is my mom and has always been like this with me for as long as I could remember!! Now I just don't know what to say without blowing up and getting all worked up and angry at her for the very rude and demanding text message!!
