Ugh, I swear, tonight is just not my night for people! Here is another vent. I seriously feel like I’m about to cry 🙁
My mother is crazy. No nice way of putting it. I love her, but she is crazy. If something pisses her off, she just cusses the person out to no end and ends up destroying friendships/professional relationships. It is so bad that she even ruins MY relations with others, as well. Like, if she gets into an argument with someone, I am no longer allowed to associate with them (yes, I am an adult, but she still feels the need to control my life). She reads into everything and blows everything out of proportion. Every morning I pray that I don’t get on FB to find that my mother has cussed out any of my friends because she *thinks* something they might have posted to my wall was rude. She is constantly getting snarky with people under my status updates. It is really embarrassing. My brother doesn’t behave at school. He usually falls asleep and doesn’t do his work. When the teachers call home, my mom cusses the teachers out instead of punishing my brother. She says, “Don’t call me at my job ever again with this stupid bullshit! My son sleeps in your class because you’re boring!”
Anyway, last November, my mom bought me a puppy and it had parvo. I called the nearest vet to my house and brought him in immediately. They turned out to be the sweetest, most caring people ever. The receptionists greeted all of the animals by their names as soon as they walked in the door. They were gentle with my dog, and saved his life. I really loved the doctor that took care of my sweet baby. At the time, my mom was so impressed, she switched our other dog to the same vet where I took mine.
Flash forward to last week, my mom asked me to go on 1-800-PET-MEDS to order heartworm medication for the dogs. Of course, heartworm medication is a prescription only thing. So, I gave PET MEDS my vet’s information. I figured they’d contact the vet and the vet would approve the prescription (I was unaware that my mother had neglected to take the dogs to their check-up this year, as I haven’t been living at home and she has forbade me from taking my dog out of her house). So, first, my mom got mad because the vet called her at work to verify that she’d requested a prescription from PET MEDS (which is not a big deal, whatsoever, but to her the littlest things can turn into the hugest explosion). Then, today, the vet called her to say that they couldn’t approve the prescription because she hadn’t brought the dogs in for heartworm testing. Of course, anybody else would have expected this, and immediately scheduled an appointment to get them tested. Not my mom!
So, she just texted me and said, “Did you know the vet denied us for heartworm meds? I cussed them out and asked them if they wanted my dogs to die! We can’t go back there now.”
Yay! Now I can no longer show my face in our veternary clinic and the dogs will have to be switched somewhere else. I’m sure she’ll blow that all to hell, too, though. My Future Mother-In-Law is a veternary receptionist at a local animal hospital. I am so afraid that my mom will suggest switching the dogs there. I just want to cry. It takes a lot to trust someone with your animals, and I trusted that vet.
