To get a better understanding about why I’m so happy, please read my previous threads about his parents here before you read this thread:
Now that you’re all caught up (haha)…
My SO, his brother, my stepdad and I all got tickets to a baseball game and since we were all leaving from different places, we decided to meet up at the stadium. Since his mom found out about the game, she kept trying to use it as an excuse to try to get him to come home, but he said no, he and I were going home to apartment after the game. We both had work the next morning, so staying at their house would be incredibly inconvenient and made absolutely no sense.
We live a bit in the boonies, so we have to take two trains to get into the city. I drove to the first train station with my SO, and his brother drove separately and took a different train from a station that’s closer to his house, and my step-dad just drove himself. We all met up at the stadium, saw a great game, even though they lost, and then walked back to the train station and my step-dad drove home.
The whole way back to the train station (it’s now midnight) his mom is STILL calling him and trying to get him to come back to their house and spend the night. He kept trying to tell her that I had left my car at the train station so it would be impossible to do that. She then told him to just come home with his brother and I could stay in another room of the house and pick up my car tomorrow (oh, goody…) haha. He said no. She then woke his dad up (who had to be up in 4 hours for work) and insisted that he come PICK US UP if we didn’t agree to drive back to their house.
It got so ridiculous that my SO and his brother basically told them to shove it, and his brother ended up driving us back to our car so we wouldn’t have to worry about taking a 2nd train back. His dad called my SO when we were almost at the train station and said he was “in big trouble, mister!” and hung up on him….
….Big trouble for what? Being 25? Living with his girlfriend? Having free will? haha
I’m just so proud of him for finally standing his ground!
