Overly dramatic SS - always the victim, even on Father’s Day
So, DH's Father's Day was less than spectacular. He got up and made everyone breakfast and one SS complained about what he made. Then he did some work to help his uncle and both SSs complained they were bored. Then DH did some yard work and we cleaned up, with SSs sitting on their phones and continuing to complain. Then as we were driving them home, DH said jokingly, "so, boys, what did you get me for Father's Day?" One sits there silent, the other - overly dramatic SS - gets pouty and says, "I was going to get you something, Dad, but I didn't have time." This kid is a teen who has money on a debit card all the time (whenever we say no to anything, he just whips out his debit card and buys it himself). He also knows how to make online purchases and has not been socially distancing, so has been going out all the time. He lives less than a mile away from several stores. But of course, then it became about how DH was making SS feel bad because he was lazy and didn't bother to even wish DH a Happy Father's Day. Also, if I know BM, I'm sure that both SSs got a card and present for their stepdad. I used to offer to help SSs, but they always told me they were "set" even though in the five years I've known them, they have never gotten him a card or a gift for Father's Day, his birthday, or Chrisfmas...and I know that they get Christmas presents for BM and family because BM once made a point of telling DH to make sure they brought home "the presents they bought for their family for Christmas" after he picked them up at school for visitation.
