Thank you both for trying to help me - I analyzed what I was afraid of and what I'm afraid of is this - suppose they hire me for one day (which I doubt I could get) but just say they decided to hire me and I didn't like it - being in a small town everyone would know I quit -
I guess it boils down to one thing - I shouldn't let what people say bother me.
I just would want to do a good job - but again - don't know if they would hire me for just one day -
I may call and inquire via my cell phone as I think with cell phones there are no names - just your number show up correct?
Yes - am just accepting whatever is - the ball is in her court and see if she calls - if she doesn't - will let time pass. Life is too short - I have other friends who like me and two kids too so I am counting my blessings during this season.
Most of us have a lot to be thankful for - feel sorry for all those little angels that were killed - the only thing I can think of that will help these families are each other - they need to support one another and have weekly meetings or whatever -
Life is never perfect and some friends do disappoint - but that is all part of life. If my friend's husband were to pass - she would realize things a little differently but now is just very busy with her job and him.
Merry Christmas and hope the new year brings us some joy and peace. Thanks for responding - all of you are very sweet - glad I have somewhere to go.View Thread
I posted a response but dont see it but hopefully this one will show up.
I find people disappoint me - I try to be friendly, etc - as an example, I went into the physical fitness center to work out as I do almost every day and saw this elderly couple whom I know and whom I worked for and they both go and sit and do their bicycling without even saying hi to me - actually ignored me. I spoke to the wife when I cleaned up my machine but it's weird because they both go into their bicycles side by side and dont even speak to each other.
Anyway, people disappoint me - I probably expect everyone to be friendly and nice.
What also I find hard to accept is the corruption in our government in the White House. I feel it is the worst it ever was and when did honesty go out the window. Maybe I should have been living in the 1920s - but I really don't like what I see in this corrupt country and whole world for that matter.
I can't change the government but what upsets me is our President is making a lot of executive orders per day WITHOUT Congressional approval. Our country wasn't suppose to do this - we have the balance of powers, and this too is upsetting. I can't change it - not one person -
Anyway, you asked about problems that I have a hard time accepting and just told you.
Interesting question - maybe we'll get some more answers from we, the people! Thank you.View Thread
Hi - I did apologize yesterday - I tried to call her 3 times but gave up so put the message on her answering machine - this is what I said "Hi ____ - This is _____. Say, I know I hung up on you the other day and want to apologize for that. I would appreciate from now on that when we do talk you will take the time for me. That is all I want to say so I will talk to you whenever okay"
How did that sound - no response and not going to call anymore - it may be months before she calls me back or years - as I said she is very controlling - once she makes up her mind she never fails - she is VERY strong willed. Since I did apologize on her answering machine, I feel I'm done with what I can do and just let time pass. I do have a birthday the end of this month and we always exchange birthdays - so it will be interesting to see if she does nothing or does something.
Anyway - thanks for your help and feel you gave me very good advice. I am done now as far as what I need to do so it's a relief off my back. The ball is in her court now.View Thread
Just wanted to say I am ending my posting on the above subject. I do not feel most of the responses have helped and they truly do not understand the situation. I appreciate their trying to help but I am not the bad guy all the time.
I am disappointed in many of you but am glad Dr. Farrell answered my post on the anxiety board.
She looks at things the right way in my opinion. Sorry to say this but am ending this post and won't post anymore about this issue.
None of you understand the situation so it was not in my best interest to post and sorry I did.View Thread
I made a mistake in my typing - my son said she is a psycho ok - not me - wanted to make that crystal clear. Ok - he said this not me.
I do not want to ask her why she does not like me - I do not need any more stress with her - for now - stay away as much as I can and that is the best way now to deal with this person. I'm too old for any more stress.
As you get older, it's harder to handle stress.View Thread
You know you have the wrong impression about me - the only reason I turned the knob and went in the home was because my grandson was jumping up and down in the living room and looking at me - then I knew she was home.
I NEVER go into their home when they are not there EVER so wanted to get that straight -
I don't think you understand what is going on - on this last post - I am not an interferring mother-in-law - quite the contrary I stay away as much as I can - I let them have their space big time believe me - it's too stressful for me to get involved - I only watch my grandson WHEN they ask me too which is often enough - her mother rarely watches him and only lives 15 minutes away - I do my part and I have helped her out tremendously when she is running late from work etc - I do a lot for her - all I require from her is respect - that's it - she has never done anything for any of us - including helping with the dishes or bringing something - she doesn't do anything and that does include cleaning as well - she has a cleaning lady.
OK - maybe you don't understand where I am coming from - from all the posts it seems to me that I'm the bad guy - I'm not always the bad guy and it is not always my fault - I do not say ugly things to her okay - I live by the golden rule - but it is very sad that other people don-t -View Thread
