I hate family who doesn’t do anything for you…
but can brag their asses off.
I seriously hate that shit.
They never call you to see how you are doing,
but will call you every couple of months to update you on what THEY are doing.
Just now my aunt called me,
after not hearing from her for a while,
and she commences to get on a bragging extravaganza I did not sign up for….
She has decided she is opening up some kind of restaurant and wanted to update me on whats she was doing.
She decided to call me in the middle of moving boxes into the place.
Aren’t you busy?
When I called her when I was at my lowest for help,
when my computer died and I needed help getting a new one,
she was not there for me at all.
She was in the process of installing a pool that has still not even been built.
It didn’t help that I found out some things about her that has made me look at her in a different light altogether.
From the start, she was went in.
Didn’t ask me how I was doing, or what has been up.
I sort of had to jump in and try not to get hit with any stray gloating.
“well i have a website that i write for…
looking for sponsorships and things like that….”
I could hear her getting ready to form an excuse like I was calling to ask for money.
“I’m am looking into companies now to sponsor me…”
Then, I sort of went in with my other accomplishments
without revealing too much,
so I could shut her down.
I hated doing it…
(well, not really….)
But I went in.
“oh… well… that is nice,” dry ass reply 1.
“well i see that we are all getting into our money making, huh?” dry ass reply 2.
She proceeded to shut up and catch a mini tude.
I countered her bragging darts with a accomplishment cannon.
Blew her whole shit out the water.
I may not be opening in a store,
but I am working on an empire.
After I hung up, I smiled.
For once, I am actually on top of my shit and working on never needing help again.
I started to think about family.
Some can be there; some don’t even exist.
Why is this?
I called the hell out that bitch’s phone when I needed help.
But now, she thinks she can blow up my phone on some bragging shit?
Why is it that the biggest liars, thieves, and braggarts can actually be in our own bloodline?
In the grand scheme of things…
