I just gotta get this out bc I’ve no where else to do so. My father is lile a giant toddler. No self awareness, doesn’t give a shit about anyone else, and manipulative.
Today, my mother had finished making dinner and waiting for him to get his food (bc dad always has to be first or he gets upset) and she was standing in front of the fridge to be out of his way.
So, he then gets mad at HER for not moving when he wanted something from the fridge, but he just expects everyone else to know what he wants. And he was laughing at her for “just standing there, like she was lost.” She wasn’t you turd, she was waiting for you, catering to you, like she always does. So she says, no I’m just waiting out of the way.
And then he started in on the “why are always so grouchy” bs. She’s not “grouchy” she’s tired of your childish behavior. And I stood up for her, bc i am too, and I’m tired of it too, tired of him expecting us to wait on him hand and foot, and tired of him expecting everyone else to automatically know what he wants and needs.
He can’t or doesn’t want to realize that the way people act toward him is a direct reaction to how he treats them. We’re just “against him.” He gets angry and then plays the victim and tries to get everyone, especially my mother, to feel sorry for him.
He actually had the audacity to threaten my mother with divorce if she didn’t start treating him more nicely. 🤢 sometimes I wish she’d just leave the asshole to rot all alone, cause without us he wouldn’t even be able to take care of himself.
He needs to realize that 1. His behavior is ridiculous, childish, and toxic. and 2. He literally relies on us for things he cannot do due to medical reasons and he needs to learn to be fucking grateful instead of complaining about everything we do.
