Me bad?(5 Posts)
AIBU? A couple of easters ago I went out and purchased the Easter eggs for the children in our family. My H is proper lazy so I had to do it - eye roll - so I withheld sex for a week to teach him a lesson. Anyway I always find out what particular egg the children would like so everyone is happy and I can have a quiet life. While at sparks ( not just any choclate egg) my BM rings me. She’s purchased an egg for my SD, it’s the one I’m buying. That’s lovely I say, while silently cursing the old bag. So I walk up and down the aisles with Easter eggs in my trolley for everyone except SD. I’m breaking out in a sweat, I can’t get this wrong or I’ll be in front of the firing squad. So I go to Thornton’s!( 15 miles into traffic) and I buy her this beautiful egg, get her name iced on it. I’m feeling good. I get home, SD is already here hyped up for the Easter egg hunt I’ve planned. She spies the bag in my hands but says nothing. She knows I’ve bought her the egg. Im full of optimism. The eggs get ushered upstairs and hidden in the wardrobe. My S comes home from his grandparents and the cousins arrive, the eggs are hidden, the clues planned. Excitable children run through the garden, gleefully finding the eggs and thanking me politely. A scream 😱 someone has died, some one has fallen, another child has eaten the others egg? No! It’s the wrong egg. Purple with rage my SD is crying, kicking and thumping the ground. I hate her I hate her she says. My family turn to look at me, the other children, my neighbours. I turn around, ask my mum for her car keys and storm off. I wrench open the boot and pull out her egg. And then I sit in the front seat and eat it. All of it! My H comes to car, I wind down the window. “ what r doing” he says “ you shouldn’t be doing that?”
He’s right I say “ it will give me awful heartburn.
Have you taken your pills dear?
I lost interest at 'I withheld sex'.
Your posts have been getting increasingly ridiculous and this is by far your best effort. Good work. Btw the more you “high five” and “support” step parents on their posts the more you look like a spoof of a respectful angry spiteful person who’s created a role to make step mums look bad. Whatever your deal is it’s not coming across as you hope. Lacks subtlety.
