Well this morning started off well... My family was sitting downstairs having morning coffee and I decided to give my dad some of his father's day gifts so he could use them during the day. Shortly after my brother begins complaining about how terrible his summer has been since he's been home from college because he has no friends, blah blah blah. This is a complaint we hear almost every time he's with the family. Then he starts complaining about the WATER PRESSURE in our TOILET! He clogs it all the time and apparently he wishes it was the same as his toilets at school. I can see my dad is beginning to get a little mad and he starts looking like he wants to get up and leave the living room. Then my dad starts telling me about how the van almost caught on fire because of the air conditioner, and that its ok to drive but we can't use the air. My ungrateful, immature brother decides to grill into my dad about how he said he was going to fix his air conditioner but he hasn't done it yet, and that it is like my dad is going back on his word, yadda, yadda. My brother is becoming the type of person who thinks the family money grows on trees. My dad is getting ready to retire and we have to watch every penny spent. My dad typically pays to fix things on our cars when they break because he knows we are in school and tight on money. Typically I will still offer to pay because I do have some money set aside. My brother just doesn't understand that even though my dad said he would fix the air, he can't unless he has the money to do so. This started a big fight. My dad walked away and my brother began telling my mom that he doesn't feel like he's a part of the family anymore. He knew this would upset her and it did. She started crying and he just went on and on. Finally I had enough and I told him he needed to grow up and to get upstairs because the argument was over. Of course he just kept going and going. So now my mom is upset and I know my dad probably is too, even though he's acting like it didn't bother him. My dad gives us a lot and my brother just doesn't see it. He pays our bills (car insurance, cell phone, college) and on top of all that, he is always willing to give us extra when we need it. This the same dad who gave my brother a hundred dollars last weekend for a rodeo trip with his friends. My brother is just so immature and it puts a lot of strain on my parents. He needs to wake up and taste real life! In his mind he thinks he takes care of himself because he lived away at college for ONE year. College is far from real life! I'm sorry this is so long, but I feel really bad for my parents. Not the best way to start off Father's Day that's for sure!
