    Sister Dearest

    My sister Petula is a singer. And thus; Petula enjoys singing. She has a beautiful voice; don't get me wrong there-- but I do stand to believe that she enjoys it a *little* bit too much. She and her husband lived with my husband and I in his house for about a year while they were...

    There are certain relatives of mine

    that really force me to bite my tongue hard. Some of them can't seem to stop talking about themselves even over someone else speaking. Some nit pick and judge small to big things others do which seems unnecessary most times. Some can speak just rude and we're expected to allow...

    My friend Jessica worries about me too much.

    She doesn't approve of anything I do. And it's not like she's a goodie-two-shoes or anything. She's done some stupid stuff. And I don't question her. Why question me?

    I feel horrible for saying this,

    but I can't wait for my grandmother to kick the bucket. I have never met anyone as obnoxious, selfish, bitchy, and passive-aggressive in my life.

    My sister is really a immature,

    ungrateful and selfish person . She wasted my parents money by quitting college 3 times. The thing that makes me frustrated is the fact she doesn't even find that a waste. She uses the stupid excuse, "Oh I didn't know what I wanted." She wasted thousands of dollars from my...

    Like every single one of them right now.

    I own my own home. My boyfriend and I put a lot of time, money and hard work into making it a home not only for the two of us, but I guess most of his family as well. When his mom got sick and lost her house, she and her spoiled, entitled, fat, lazy and remarkably disrespectful...

    My little sister has always been the shittiest

    Can I just say, parents don't know everything.

    The moment you try and defend yourself, they automatically tell you that you don't know anything. It's ridiculous that parents can yell at us, but we can't yell at them. They don't let us explain why we did something, they just assume.
