I'm going to tell you a sad little story, about reckless teenagers, and someone who doesn't understand why.. (aka me)... My cousins are reckless people. They treat their mother and her side of the family horribly (by the way I'm on their mom's side) because their parents got divorced. It all started when we were at lunch with me, my sister, my mom, my aunt, my 2 great aunts, grand mom and my cousins, for my great aunt's birthday. My sister is a photographer and got a professional camera for Christmas, and was asked to get pictures. My oldest cousin (age 18) was making fun of my sister for her camera, called her younger sister (17) an ugly piece of.. poo.. and many more..colorful words. My mom asked her to stop and she yelled at my mom and muttered under her breath "She's not my mother, she's not going to tell me what to do. I'm not a child, I'm (not a nice word) 18." and I quietly asked "So your doing to forget all she has done for you, and just not care at all?" and she screamed "Stop talking about things you don't know about. I was sad, went into the bathroom cried, and came back and sat with my great aunt, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and I gave her a hug. Neither of us spoke, and my cousin screamed I'm leaving to make a phone call. I'll come in when I feel like it. She called her father. He said my mom's the reason he's divorced. She told her mom "Go inside and tell your sister to stop telling me what to do, I'm not her child, and I'm (here we go again) 18." When that was announced inside, me, my sister and my mom immediately left, my mom speaking to my cousin. In addition to that, the 17 year old asked "you wouldn't be acting like this with our dad's family would you?" and she simply answered "no. no one here loves me and I don't like them." Yet again me being stupid and not shutting my mouth answered "Blabbers, (my nickname for her, I put a lot of thought into it ) everyone here loves loves you, no question about it." ...no response... End of that day, next day we go to Pittsburgh to see family. My cousin is perfectly fine. Last week my sister was at a friend's house and was sad. Her friend asked her what was wrong and told her "my cousins" and went on to tell about their mother etc.. Well that friend told my cousin, and they won't speak to my sister, and the 17 year old not talking to me. I was at my chorus concert for school, and my cousins were their too, for their concert. I went back afterwords to talk to the oldest, and she was really nice and told me I did great, and gave me a hug. The other one said "hi baby, my friend loves you 10x more now because he found out your name." end of conversation, besides telling me the story. I found my mom, said bye to my aunt and left. That was about 5 days ago. Still no conversation.... Does this happen to you? How does it make you feel?
