"i hate them"
August 2, 2008 11:09pm CST
We had a family reunion.My dad prepared dinner for her sister who visited our country and my aunt is already a U.S. citizen had to come home to attend the burial of her husbands family member.So as soon as my dad knew that they are here he invited my aunt to visit my dad (I don't live with my dad now) for dinner and my dad invited some of his siblings family as well. What I observed is that my relatives changed.They became a U.S. citizen and they acted as if they are the richest people who visited a poor family.They started boasting and these "pretending to be rich relatives" of mine looked and talked to my dad as if he is not their brother. My dad prepared dinner and I overheard one my aunt saying that "we are going to eat again"...meaning prior to going to my dads place they already went to a fine dining restaurant and had dinner.My dad prepared a lot of food. How come there are some people who just don't give respect.Don't they have a slightest idea that my dad treat them so special?My siblings and I actually don't like the idea of inviting them for dinner bec. they never remember my dad,they don't call my dad and they don't even care about my dads life here.But what touched me the most was the message explained to us by our dad that "Even if I am not well off like them,if they consider that I am poor..what's important is that I remember them and they will remember me when I die that I was nice to them even if they don't treat me as person."...it broke my heart.:c

hi neilchua thats just awful the way your Aunt treated your father just because she has become an american citizen, why should that make any difference, family is family.your dad'treated them royally and they disrespected him. As an american that makes me feel bad for you and your dad.I am so sorry that your aunt treated your dad like that. that was just unforgiveable. my best wishes and God Bless/

Hi hatley this is neils girlfriend.Thanks for the reply.This is actually my discussion..there was a problem with the login in mylot.I was actually logged in to my account when I created this discussion but to my surprised I saw neils avatar and I don't know what happened and it was actually bizarre bec. I logged in to my account and I saw neils avatar. Our dad just told us that what's important is that he was happy to see my aunt and his other siblings.My sisters and I just hated our relatives for being rude to my dad knowing that he was the oldest amongst the siblings.For me they are so disrespectful.Thanks for the comment hatley.Happy mylotting.;p

omg how rude! doesnt matter if they did think of your father as "poor" compared to them, they could have at least shown appreciation and thanks for the effort he put into making a family meal, and for having opened up his home so everybody could visit each other again before they went back to the states! it drives me nuts when ppl who have managed to gain a "higher lifestyle" act like everybody else is beneath their notice! who cares if he is richer or if he is poorer, he is FAMILY!! and family should take precedence over everything else!
