"Your mum's fat and poor"

Said to me by my 'd'p just now. I had commented that he was behaving like his dad today- his dad is notoriously grumpy and bad tempered and this was the response I got.

In a weeks time we are going on a holiday with my parents. They have arranged their holiday around his 2 weeks off from studying (and so incurring summer holiday rates) and are paying for me and him to go with them. Costing them at least £600+ each. My parents are not rolling in it but they are good people, have worked hard to pay off their mortgage.

He obviously thinks his parents are somehow better- living in a moderate house in cornwall that is falling apart and they are struggling to pay the mortgage on.

It has just really hit a nerve. After all my parents have done for him and this is what he thinks of them.

He should be ashamed of himself.

Say to him what you wrote above.

And then point out that you can forget all about money/housing etc. - a far more important consideration is the fact that his parents seem to have brought up a rude, arrogant little squirt - now that's REALLY something to be proud of eh?
