Small rant- my hearing went kaplooey again
I'm going to my ENT tomorrow, I don't know what happened.

But my rant is - The Family. What is it about "speak up" that they can't grasp?? I am so sick of saying "I can't hear you" and then "I Can't Fucking Hear You!!" and then "What is wrong with you goddammit, SPEAK UP".

And then they get mad at me because I yell at them. They're all adults, by the way.

You know, if I weren't working a job, running a business, babysitting grandkids, and helping with their myriad paperwork for custody, mortgages, taxes, school loans... maybe expecting them to have a little consideration for mom wouldn't be such a big deal.

GAAAAAAA!!!!!!

Thank you for letting me rant.

1. If they don't hear you, you aren't talking loud/clearly enough. If you don't hear them
it is because you don't hear well or "don't you have your ears in?"

Rant on and I'm with you.
