Super Mom


I swear some people are born without a heart.  If they do have one it is a darn cold plastic one.

Monday I had to phone and cancel a meeting that my dad had scheduled with a group of people that he would have gone bird watching with this weekend.

Me:  Hi This is Melany speaking.  My dad asked me to give you a call.  He is in Pietersburg at the moment because his sister-in-law is very very ill and he won’t be able to make the meeting tonight.

Heartless bitch:  *silence*  But the meeting was to be tonight!  What must we do now?  mmmm  We’ll just have to have a meeting without him then.  We will fill him in on the details.   Bye.

What the fuck?!  No “I’m sorry about your aunt”  “How is she doing?”  “Give my regards to your mom and dad”  nothing!


Today after seeing a client, I get a message to phone her.  So I do.

Me:  Hallo fuckwit Mrs X.  I got a message to phone you.

Heartless Bitch:  Yes I want to know if your dad will be joining us on Saturday.

Me:  I’m really not sure.  The decision to come home changes from minute to minute, so I can’t give you any guarantee that he will be back on Saturday.

Heartless Bitch:  That’s a problem you know.  How must we plan this then?  We will just have to leave him out then.

Me:  That’s fine.  He will not have a problem with that at all.

Heartless Bitch:  What cancer is it that your aunt has?   *Me thinking that finally she will show some compassion*

Me:  Lung cancer and it seems she has cancer in her bladder as well.

Heartless Bitch:  Yes well, then I assume it will be a while before they are home.

!!!!!!!  No emotion!  F-king hell woman!  This is a life and you are worried about your birdwatching trip!!!

Like I said – no heart.  She cannot have a heart.

    Nothing to add, really.

  9. Wow! Both of those ladies were extremely heartless and uncaring; I’m sorry you had to experience that. Still praying for your aunt.

  10. I’m sorry about that, Melany. I can’t believe it. What’s so important about bird-watching??!!

    And how’s your aunt, dear? I hope everything is OK.

    By the way, I have this video that, I think, you should see… Digging the Best out of Us as Parents.

    Hope you love it!
