So I was meant to vacuum the house but sincce my dad had to work, I finally gor round to it today.
So my mum who was working in the garden came and gave me these tasks:
- clean between the cushions
-clean under (specific) desk
-clean behind (specific) table
-clean certain corner of cobwebs
-when the beans on the stove come to a boil lower the heat
That’s already a lot of tasks, but fine. I’m doing the vacuuming:
-I see the beans are boiling I turn it down.
-My mum comes in says that stoves high.
-I say that’s the lowest in can go.
Mum goes in the garden, I continue vaccuming.
-I move to the bedrooms. I finish the vaccuming.
-I go to throw sth in the kitchen. I smell sth.
-The beans are burning. I turn it off.
-I go to the garden to tell mum.
She goes balistic. Saying I told you to “keep an eye on them” (she didn’t)
I say you said turn it down when it comes to a boil which I did. You didn’t say anything after that.
She shouts, “I need to tell you again?”
I shout “Yes!”
She says I’m making excuses.(we’ve all heard that before)
I say, I did what you told me. I’ve explained before I need reminders and specific tasks and not too many at a time.
She says I don’t want to hear it. Just accept you messed up. (ouch)
This goes on, we keep shouting until nothing is being heard so we just end it.
Am I wrong at being pissed for getting yelled at? I don’t think I am.
P.s I’m a 27 year old woman arguing with her mum over burnt beans. (15 months diagnosed)
