    Default O.M.G! *A rant*

    I'm not one to show emotion, but OMG.. I have to share this with someone!!!

    A little background info: I have 5 aunts, 1's never around, 1's too proper to associate with the "common folk", 2 can do no wrong but they hate eachother and the youngest is fun and cool but moves all over due to her dh and the military. My dad is the only boy.

    We were at a dinner to honor and celebrate my grandmother for her 50+ years of volunteering at a local charity organization. The dinner was fine. Mammie was totally surprised!

    Afterward, we (my fella, me and my son) go up to tell Mammie bye and hug her. My aunt, one of the "can do no wrong", says "You can't leave, we're taking pictures". I say, "I don't do pictures"...but here's why, I had already gotten a pic of me and Mammie earlier and I really don't do pics anymore because I have eye issues due to my diabetes: the flash causes my good eye to spasm and my blind eye is now a lazy eye and I...just....don't....do...pictures!!!
    She says, very hatefully, "It's not for you" and looks at me like I'm a piece of dirt!! OMG! Then before I could mumble a word, she says, "Go ahead and just leave..GO ON!"

    O.M.G!

    I say! "Carol, don't be hateful." and if you could imagine a woman breathing smoke through her nostrils and snaring a Billy Idol lip, she looks at me and screeches, "I'M NOT BEING HATEFUL!"

    O.M.G! O.M.G!!!!

    I look at her with my mean face, and I have a very effective mean face...breath in and very low and direct, point my finger and about 5 inches from her face state, "Get over yourself and quit being a hateful B*"

    We left without partaking in the picture festivities.

    50 years volunteering at charity organization -- that is something to celebrate!

    I'm sorry to hear about what happened with you and your aunt.. does she know why you don't like taking pictures?

    Indeed!! Mammie is an awesome woman!

    And yes, my aunt knows exactly why. Her husband is a diabetic too and knows the complications I'm going through with my eyes.

    You have to understand too, that this woman...it doesn't matter what you know, she knows more. A nuclear physicist could be explaining nuclear energy and she knows more than the scientist. No joke.

    I usually just let it roll off my back, but last night, she was just scoured and bitter, and I had to let off some steam, so my teapot ended up at tBf

    Congrats to your Mammie. What a special woman.

    Wow. I have encountered hard personalities such as Auntie's. I tend to think they are generally very unhappy with their own personal situation, whatever it may be, and they take it out on others. It's sad...it really is difficult and time consuming to be angry all the time. And, unfortunately, those who think they know it all tend to stay that way. Ugh...how frusterating that you have to deal with them. I can understand your teapot steaming over.

    Sorry this happened to you. Congratulations to your Grandmother, she sounds like a wonderful woman. Next time you can perhaps ask whomever is taking pictures to turn off the flash and you can take as many pictures as you like without hurting your eyes. We used to do this all the time with Grandma, she had diabetes too and she had already lost sight on one of her eyes. No flash, no pain
