to ask you Am I Being Sensitive?

Yes, I know this is pretty petty and insignificant, but my mum and has just some into the room where my dad and me are and offered to make my dad a cup of coffee but not me. I said to my dad, 'no, it's ok mum, I didn't want one' and he's told me not to be so sensitive (by which he means over-sensitive).

Is it being over sensitive to think it's weird to offer to make one person in the room a drink and not to offer the other?

I think it's very rude, and it boggles my mind as to why she wouldn't offer you a cup as well. It's just common courtesy.

you sound like hard work.

you sound like hard work
How the hell did you ascertain that?

She sounds weird. Is she cross with you about something? Does she want you to leave? I think it's rude of her.

Yes I think that's weird and rude.

Thanks for the replies!

Is she cross with you about something?

No, she's like this all the time. And in actual fact, things have moved on since I posted. She's just come in and made me apologise to my dad for upsetting him by saying what I did.

being upset about someone not asking if you want a drink, yep hard work.

Whats the background, are you living with them (rent free for example)? Just visiting (unexpected or planned)?
Could be some underlying resentment

I've read the post a few times and I still can't see where OP said she was upset about this?

She asked if she was over-sensitive as implied by her dad, she wasn't, her parents sound extremely rude.

I'd be a bit meh too if I wasn't offered a drink in that situation

It's rude, and weird.

Whats the background, are you living with tqhem (rent free for example)? Just visiting (unexpected or planned)?

I work with my dad out of his home office.

The obvious answer is for me to work from home from now on I think.
