Should I be upset with my mom? Should I say something?
More mom drama. Just when I thought things were improving…
Some of you may remember this thread from last week. The conclusion of the day was that things went well, and my mom’s boyfriend even offered to do my brakes since nobody else could do them and I was short on cash to go to a mechanic.
So I’ve been calling my mom all week to get her to ask Rick if two Sundays from now was okay. She kept saying she forgot to ask, she forgot to ask. Then she called me today and said “he won’t be able to do them because his back is bad.” and I said “Why did he tell me he could then?” and she said “because he’s a man and he speaks without thinking.”
Now, okay fine. I get that she’s protecting him. I get that she’s concerned with his physical well-being. But I know my mother. She absolutely can not lie. I know she didn’t ask him. She’s speaking for him.
His back wasn’t bad enough to do her oil change or wash her car 2 weeks ago… and this is my big issue with this. If she’s so concerned about his back, why is his back okay for her car and not mine?
I don’t have any issue with having to find someone else to do my car. My entire issue is that my mom is lying to me all of a sudden. Should I say anything to her? Or just drop it?
