Dear Mother,

You are almost 72 and your health is failing. It is possible that you will not be able to live on your own much longer. Guess what? You should have considered that when you were busy being a suck-ass, abusive, neglectful parent.

See ya,
Your Daughter

Can I forward this to my mother-in-law?

my 80 year old accustomed to manipulating her way out of every paper bag she can find mother, recently moved about a two day drive away. Saying she couldn't get help from us (all three families within a five minute walk of her house and there helping her all the time, us) amongst other nonsense.

Now she's there ... needing help to unpack ... and guess which schmuck family is sending someone to stay with her a week and do that? This family. Not the kids she has living within a ten minute drive of her ... or a half hour drive, guess what? they can't take time out from work for the woman. No. Apparently, we of the 'can't get you people to do anything for me' 'two days drive away' are still gonna be the ones carrying the can. Hope she doesn't fondly imagine I will. My kids might, she didn't get to abuse them when they were small, I won't, because she did and still does.

having got that off my chest (again) time for a shower. And a nice lie down.
