SD nonsense update
So, here is my update for this week's SD nonsense. SD16 finally realized her housekey was missing, when she tried to unlock the door at our house and whoa! How did that happen? ( I took it back.) I didn't say a word.
SD18 came over in a mood, and SD16 was fed up with her too, so they were both on edge. I came home from work the first day skids were at our house for the week, and DH was in the kitchen making dinner. I could tell he was on his last nerve because of their constant complaining. I rubbed his back and whispered "Thank you for making dinner, hon. It looks wonderful!" and gave him a sheepish grin to indicate I understood his pain. He had to yell at the skids to get off the couch (They were both laying on it so I had no where to sit when I got home.) and join us at the dinner table.
SD18 starts tearing her steak apart, huffing and looking at the inside with disgust. She says to her dad "Is this steak actually done, Daddeee?" He says "Yes." She says "It doesn't look all the way done, Daddeeee." He says "Its safe. I wouldn't serve it to you if it wasn't." She says "Oh, reallly???" with the snarkiest tone ever. I had had enough, so I look her dead in the eyes and said "If you want your steak cooked more, you can shuffle yourself into the kitchen and cook it. I don't want to hear anything more on the subject."
SD was, of course, more pissed. She started badgering her dad about other things, rapid fire, so that he could barely answer one question before she dismissed him and asked another pointed question. All the while she gives him this withering look. He says "You need to look at me while I am talking to you, so that I know you heard me." SD18 glares him down and says "I don't NEED to do ANYTHING!." Oh my god, she is so disrespectful, I can't even believe the attitude she gives. I let DH handle it, as I didnt' feel like kicking her out of the house the first night, and DH was actually stepping up and gently reminding her to have a little respect for her father, so that was a good sign. He was pretty angry.
SD20, who lives on her own, has contracted Covid and has not been vaccinated. She is isolating in her apartment, but called BM to ask BM to deliver her some groceries. BM said she was too busy ( ie, screwing her new boyfriend) so SD20 called DH to whine. AT the same moment, BM called SD16 to demand that she and SD18 deliver groceries to their covid sister. (Drop on doorstep - no contact, of course.)
SD16 is afraid BM will take away her new car, so she jumps when told to. DH was astounded at how shitty of a mom BM was. I got over being astounded about 8 years ago. That beatch has no maternal instincts. She is like a snake - drops a litter and takes off.
SD is also on some kind of new medication for anxiety, which doesn't seem to be working. DH and I always the last to know, since BM and SD don't discuss her mental state unless its inconvenient for them - ie she is having a nervous breakdown. So, I am not putting up with any BS this week and if I have to tell SD18 to go back to her moms, I will. The rudeness is not acceptable and we are all tired of her attitude.
