So I'm looking for a new job, and I told mom. You wanna know what got her excited?

She said something along the lines of...

"Finally! You can go out and meet someone new. You can't meet my future son-in-law if you keep staying at home. I want you to go out, be seen and meet people."

My reaction: *Facepalm* Lol
I heard two middle aged women complaining about this in a doctor's waiting room last year, lol. "All they do is get up, turn on the computer, work, eat lunch, work, eat dinner and go to sleep. What kind of life is that?"
I mean...yeah. 馃槄

@CrazyMusicLover It sounds right hahhha. Except I watch kdrama/cdrama and do other things too. XD

How's your routine?
@Casheyane It depends, similar but I often squeeze a walk in the woods into it. 馃槅 And lately I like working in the morning, a bit afer lunch and then from 8 pm to 12 pm.
I remember my mom was so excited to be a grandmother when we told them we were pregnant. It鈥檚 been 19 months and they鈥檝e made no effort to be in his life, all they want is pictures. They have plenty of money and are mostly retired.
@SW-User dude fucking same man.

I think it's so rude and selfish of grand parents to say these things. Maybe you don't want kids or a man. Fuck her.
Casheyane26-30, F
@Queendragonfly Nope. I abide by honor your father and mother commandment. And I love mom. I just find these things funny. :)

And I don't tolerate anyone rude to mom. So while I understand the sentiment, I'd warn you be careful in what you say.
Parents can be so selfish at times. My mom did the same thing to me after college.
