Bring me that/Hand me that.

My mother passed when I was very young, relatives raised my mothers children that is why I always say my aunt or my grandmother. When I was young, my aunt would always say bring me this or bring me that, she never got up to get anything. If she wanted a glass of water she would tell one of us to go get the water, if she wanted the television changed to another channel, ( didn't have remotes then) she would tell one of us to turn it. Some of us was always waiting on her. Do you know of anyone that wants people to wait on them all the time? Is your spouse the type of person that sits and tell someone to bring them this or hand me that?

My spouse is real bad about wanting waited on hand and foot. His father is even worse. I at least have gotten my husband to do simple things for himself. Espically when I am upset. he knows not to ask or tell to getthis. He will do his own work clothes now as well. We went round about that. As he was to lazy to place them in the basket. Instead he placed them on the floor right beside the clothes basket. So, I refused to wash them. Sorry but lazy people just get on my last nerve.

Good you broke that up. I have always said, don't start nothing you don't intend to finish.

Of course I had to put a stop to that. I have a bad leg and can't be having things on the floor or I will fall. So, I made sure I put a stop to that nonsense. I still have some thing sto work out with him of course. But at least the one big one is taken care of.

Sorry you lost your mother when you were young. I guess your aunt was happy to have ya'll there to be her waiters. I don't know anyone like that. My husband has never been that way either. I know some women who even have to fix a plate for their husband....if my husband wants to eat he will fix his own plate. hahaha

Hi chevee~That is really sad. I am sorry about your mother. I am also sorry that you had to live that way. That is really terrible that your aunt used the children that way. She sounded like she was extremely lazy. Did she at least take care of the children and provide a decent home for you? If she wasn't able to do those simple tasks I would hate to think about the cooking and cleaning and other more difficult things that are required in taking care of a home and let alone taking care of young children.

I know some people like that, but it is the husband and the grown kids that do it to the mother, I think gee things would be different if I was the mother in this house, some people are so unthinking of others...

I have never been the type of person that wanted someone to wait on them hand and feet. I didn't even have my children waiting on me , if I wanted it I got it myself.

My sperm donor was like that. I don't know anyone else that does it and if I did, I'd simply tell them "NO".

Hi Chevee, Oh yes, my hubby is so lazy in the house that I have to do everything, he just sits there asking me to get him this and that, I just end up telling him to do it himself if he wants it, I tired and there is nothing wrong with him, the bone idle so and so. Tamara

Ohhh same thing with me. My mom passed away when I was very very young... 11 months old. I was alone then... am I mean the only child then when she passed away. My dads family was the one who took care of me. I became the youngest in the family since my dad was the oldest among siblings. Its different with me though because I was the firstborn grandchild then... so I've got all the attention and all the love from everyone in the family. I became the diamond of their eyes... and yes, that was then. hahahaha. atleast I've got all their love then. But Things went differently when I went to college because since my dads family cant afford to send me school in college, my granmom asked her sister instead to take me home with her and send me to school. but my dads aunt husband is just a different one. he treated my dads aunt family different too. He consider us not a realtive or anything but some kind of a servant or helper. What he did tome then was... he asked me to do things for him every teenny tiny details... which drives mad at the end. I dont know... there are just people like that who thought they are god when people gets their favor. But ofcourse they are not aby gods... because time came that the Lord has lifted me up.... way... way... up.... that they need to look up to see me. hahahhaahah. I was blessed sooo much blessed... but my heart remains low. Thanks to the Lord!

My father in law is like that. He expects anything to be handed to him including what he wears to what he eats. Whether to bring something from the fridge etc.
