**please note before reading: this is all 100% true, and is my life, and I am asking for help at this point** Sorry for the wall of text, but if you read it all, it explains what I mean fully. Ima get straight down to the point and make this clear and sweet as pie. I like pie btw... My step dad lives at home with me and my mom. I live with them because college is close by, its free living and hey why not.. Anyways, my step dad has a temper sort of. He is 2x bigger than me, and has a violent history. Problem is lately, seems everything I do or NOT do, I get blamed for or takes the anger out on me. Not beating, of course not, cops be here in a second. Idc if he beats me to death dialing 911, all they gotta do is hear the screaming and hes back in jail. Now to change, He is like this ONLY like 2-3 times a month. He wont wanna go anywhere with my mom or me, doesnt care, doesnt want to eat, but then makes everyone else in the house feel like crap because he is in a pissy mood and just turns everything into his own orbit. This past weekend he mowed the lawn and help carry rocks around for the garden bed. I was upstairs chillin in my room, didnt even know he mowed till after. While he moved rocks as well. But then this morning, he says a smartassremark to my mom I forgot what he said to her, but wasnt mean to her, but I remember his last words clear as day. "Cuz the kid is a piece of sh!it who doesnt do anything all day" EXCUSE ME? Every morning when I make my hot tea, I ask him, me: "hey anything gotta be done today? Him: nope me: ok, ill be upstairs if u need me My mom heard him say that, and she said *** was that remark for. and he replied with well its true, didnt do a dam thing this weekend. CUZ HE DIDNT ASK ME TO GO HELP and I DIDNT KNOW!!!! You dont just call someone a piece of crap, when they didnt know something. Sure, I shouldn't have to be told to go help, I know this, Im not a kid. But when I didnt know, kinda not my fault... Probably had my music on playing a game, could of came and asked me or asked for help at least. its like everytime hes in a bad mood, im the worthless one who doesnt do anything. I had a 20 yr old friend over this past weekend, havent seen him in a while. Chilling in the basement, my step dad comes down and we all watch TV, he keeps his mouth shut. Then after my friend leaves my step dad just tells me " dont ever invite that kid over again, u dont deserve it u dont do anything " WHAT?? Just last week we WERE ALL CHILLING and laughing and having a good time, then this weekend its like im the bad guy and hes Mr. Jerk off I been thinking about this all morning, cuz Im sick of this. I usually blow it off, cuz few days later he gets in a better mood and we all back to normal. But this takes the cake, when he told me this morning to my MOMS face that I was a piece of ***** kid. Of course, as a mother, she went berserk and called him out blah blah My question and sorry for the wall of text, but it helps explain.. Did I do something wrong here? OR does this jerk off just need to **** out of my life? What can / should I do? Dont just say: move out kinda hard with no cash and no where to go really. got a job lined up in the next few days possibly. I just still feel like this is half my fault / half his attitude coming out. Like fo real, way to crash my weekend, should of just gotten hammered at the beach. Usually, he will say Sorry to me, for getting angry or yelling or anything. But this time, I wont accept that, aint good enough. acts like a woman on her period, how sad EDIT:: Lets add something to this as well When he vacuums, I offer always, I dont mind it. Every time I do, he says nah he got it. Im like why, ill do it. His answer: You dont do it well enough, or you dont try. Im sorry, since when did pushing a piece of plastic around the room require a skill level? Quite frankly, why I think im in the wrong myself? Cuz now Im pissed the hell off, dont wanna talk to him, dont wanna see him, dont care if he falls off a cliff tomorrow. And now today, Ima chill in my room and be the lazy SOB he calls me. Why? Cuz every time I try to redeem my self and do something useful, it doesnt go notice or I just get treated like crap the next time. So my question now is; Why should I try? What good is it. screw him, and honestly, screw my mother too (i love her to death, she always had my back) but now, i cant stand how she just ignores things. She puts up with the crap, idk why. You think after 2 1/2 years she might get the hint and throw his ass out. She talks about it, but shes all talk and no smack. So my attitude: fuck it ... if everything I do isnt good enough, then fine keep saying im lazy, u do all the work and Ill relax. Have fun doing all the work, Have fun bitching and getting you know where, have fun! Ill sit back and relax .
