To be a bit pissed off?

Today when I went down stairs my mother asked if i'd like us to go to the coast today. It's my favourite place on earth so of course I was all excited and agreed. You can only get there by car so no chance of me going alone seeing as I don't drive.

Then a few minutes after she said how she had waited for a day like this (sunny) so she could be out in the garden. FFS, she always does this. I mean why fcking ask me to go to the coast, get me all excited and then make me feel guilty for stopping her being in the garden? So I said she could stay home and be in the garden and she said something sly to me so I left the room.

Oh, she was just probably thinking out loud?

I'd tell her you'd like to go to the coast and maybe help her do the garden another day? seems fair..

May I ask how old you are? It's just that you say you can't drive rather than you're too young so I assume you're older than 16. Why can't you get a train and/or a bus to the coast? Whole families manage to get themselves to the beach for the day without taking a car.

I agree that it's annoying when someone makes plans with you then changes their mind but it doesn't have to stop you going either by yourself or with a friend.

I think you need to be a bit more independent.

you still not moved out?


or if you want to go to the coast, hop on the train!

Wot Lulu said.

Many people do. Every day. It is possible to live independently you know.

You hate it so much, you moan all the time and yet you NEVER take any action to improve your situation.

Dear god, you are one hissy fit away from acutally being me! grin

So take it from one who knows, from one who has suffered because of their own inability to TAKE CHARGE OF THEIR OWN LIFE!!! Stop making excuses, get off your bum, get out and make your own way in the world.

lola. I thought you were moving out

HunphreyCushion Sun 13-Jul-08 15:33:15

Hello lovely Lola. smile

I can't believe you're still living at your Mum's.

It's like groundhog day really, isn't it - all the same annoyances and irritations.

You can put a stop to all that though.


Honestly, once you've made that step, you'll never look back. smile

YANBU if you are 12 or under

If you are over 12 YABU and very immature

smurfgirl Sun 13-Jul-08 17:02:59

You need to move out. I think I am a similar age to you and could not bare to live at home now argh.

lottiejenkins Sun 13-Jul-08 17:09:29

Maybe there are financial reasons why Lola is at home?? hmm has anyone considered that.........?

lulumama Sun 13-Jul-08 17:45:12
