- Wedding: April 2012
So my mom is getting married next month at 62, good for her.
I haven’t interacted much with her new hubby to be yet, but from the few times I’ve met him he’s seemed like a nice guy. So whatever.
After months of tension between Fiance and I and his fam, his dad finally called my mom to kick off some cultural engagement stuff that the adults want to do. Im not particularly keen on it, but whatever, I’ll participate.
So my mom calls me, telling me that Fiance dad called her but her hubby to be did most of the speaking b/c “he’s the man”; she proceed to hand him the phone and this guy starts telling me stuff about:
“how we should have the engagement party in NYC even if al my friends are in DC b/c all my mom’s friends are in NYC
we shouldn’t get married within a week of FIs graduation b/c it’s not a good idea (mind you, we’ve already agreed on a date with FI’s parents so WTF is this dude talking about)
he thinks it’s fine for me to pursue my MBA since his niece got a masters in engineering management from Columbia (dude, I didn’t ask for your approval for my life plans, mind your effin business)
how he is gonna call my Fiance and discuss the wedding with him”
COME AGAIN?!!!! Dude, who the hell are you!!!! I dont know you! you dont get to makse decisions about my wedding, YOU JUST GOT HERE!!!
SO my mom and I GOT. INTO. IT. She is my reoresentative, NOT HIM. He needs to go somewhere! She’s like, well he’s the man and your step dad so he has to represent us. I told her this dude is not my father so he is not involved. PERIOD. She was livid.
Background: my dad walked out on us when I was 5 and we’ve never heard from him since. My mom is always trying to make her new boyfriend my daddy of the decade. It’s not happening this time.
Ugh, am I overreacting? Give me it to me straight, I wont get snarky haha.
