Today I screwed up BIG TIME...

Sunday, July 07, 2013

Today I screwed up BIG TIME.

The house payment for the month of July is due today.

So this afternoon, I had a friend drive me to Kroger so I can get a money order for the amount owed, never thinking that my brother would be on me like stink on s**t about it.

He is clearly abusing his power as power of attorney.

Anyway. I also after going to Kroger and getting said money order...had this same friend take me to see my mother tonight.

While I was visiting with mom, my brother calls and asks who took me to the nursing home to see mom.

Like it is ANY of his business.

I tell a little white lie and say that my neighbor took me.

Well, my brother calls my neighbor and meanwhile my nose grows longer than Pinocchio's nose did.

My neighbor knew nothing of me wanting to go see mom.

These friends meanwhile have been so kind to me while mom is in the nursing home and have invited me to dinner at their home and have taken me to see mom on two occasions and also have taken me to the store many times.

So, I saw no shame in using them again.

Anyway, about the money order and back to the story at hand...

So my brother finds out that I took the money out of my half of the bank to make the house payment. I purchase said money order.

That should be the end of it...right?....WRONG!.

Now because my brother went behind my back and talked with the owner of the home...I now have to try to get the money placed back in the bank tomorrow as he is worried sick about our finances and scared that we will not have money to be able to move to Indiana when the time comes.

Is he right or wrong on this?...and who is really at fault here? for doing what I thought was right?...or my brother for interfering with something I HAD to handle?.

    Lance all you need to do is tell your brother (when he asks who took you to see your mom) is "A friend took me." That's it. He doesn't need to grill you like that!

    Take a deep breath, go look in the mirror, imagine your brother looking back at you, now stick your tongue out at him. He is being very childish and he deserves to be treated as such even if only you know you did it.

    So, I'm not exactly sure how you screwed up.

    You made a payment that needed to be made. I have no idea what you're arrangements are with your brother or who is supposed to make the payment but you did what needed to be done.

    Visiting your mom at the nursing home. I'm not sure why it is any business of your brother's how you got there. He really sounds like a control freak.

    He's too much of a control freak. I hope things get better for you.
