I do volunteer work for several non profit organizations. This meme is from my husband’s cousin, who is a Roman Catholic priest living in Baltimore, Maryland. Father Tom is a wonderful person. While I am not a religious person, I have family members who are and are complete hypocrites. My brother had to do community service after being arrested for assault. He has a panel truck and goes to pick up items people donate to a women’s shelter. What they don’t know is my asspipe brother takes these items then turns around and sells them. The shelter only gets what he doesn’t want.
He’s ultra conservative and decries anyone who takes government assistance. Yet when his wife was tragically killed by a drunk driver, he had no problems collecting over $500k in Social Security for him and his two kids. Now if a person of color did the same thing, well they are one of the “takers” according to my brother. Did I mention that he became rich overnight due to his wife’s death? Needless to say he’s a Donald Trump supporter and told his adult daughter that if she didn’t vote for Trump, she wouldn’t be getting a different car. Her current car is a piece of crap, that is a death trap. Nice relatives I have.
Don’t get me started on my loser sister.
My husband always says that friends are God’s way of making up for your family. I think he’s right.
Or as the old saying goes “you can pick your friends, not our family” That’s why I live 300 miles away from mine! LOL
Wow! I think every family has someone they like to dodge. But I admire your courage to share here, after all, you can’t choose your relatives, and you’re not responsible for them. Good for you for moving far away. 🙂
Thanks! I kinda felt bad about my post, but none of my siblings care about my blog, and I doubt they will ever read it. I rarely talk to my siblings as they have way too much drama, and I’m too old for that crap. And I’m the youngest at 57!
Good for you. I’d sometimes like to write about injustices I feel about personal things in life, but always worry about ‘eyes’, lol. 🙂
I hear that. Being a published author I certainly understand.
Lol, it has its drawbacks. 🙂
