I need to vent

Hi All,
Please forgive me, but I need to vent a little. Today has been a very hard day. After getting off the phone with my mom in law, my husband comes to get me. He has just come home from driving our grandson to the skate park. He tells me to come look at the car, our BRAND NEW car. As he was driving out, a kid on a bike rides into the car. The kid is fine and his mother does not seem to care. She was on her way to the park. So, we walk to the park to get her name and insurance info. She gives us her name and tells us to get lost, since its her kids word against my husbands. Really rude. So, we call the police info line since there is a major gouge on the car and they call her. She lies to them and says we were trying to blame her kid for the damage to our car, she said that she saw her kid the whole time, LIE. The police tell her that there is a witness, our teenage grandson, she had no idea that there was anyone else involved. While on the phone with the police she screams at her kids to shut up because mommy is going to jail The police tell her to not say such things to her children but she just goes off on the poor kids. This woman is nuts. The police said that they could not believe how she kept changing her story and telling them lie after lie. To the police, can you believe this nut case. So, now my blood pressure is sky high. It was already high, now its through the roof. What kind of mother lies to the police and tells her small children to lie to the police. It was an accident, and we would have offered to split the repair bill, but not now.. Thanks for letting me vent to you all. I need to get this out of my system.

    People!!!!!
    Lisha,
    Don't worry about venting here. We all have done it. I know people can sometimes get to you. I have been on the soapbox a few times myself. I have made a career out of watching people and actually study them. Its a real shame what you learn with the way a lot of them act and do their fellow man. I could go on for hours about things I have seen people do. You'd be surprised at what you can learn about them by just sitting and watching and mainly just listening.I could go on for hours but you know what I mean. Maybe this is why people love animals so much,its rare they will turn on you or try to use you. Never had an animal lie to me or try to make a fool out of me yet. Now people well thats a different story. John

    Venting..
    Hi Lisha,
    What you described would cause anyones blood pressure to go through the roof! I have seen this kind of behavior more times than I can count. I was at Safeway shopping last spring and a young kid, probably 9 or 10 years old ran a grocery cart into my back. His mother watched it happen and instead of asking me if I was ok she just yelled at the kid to bring the cart back to her. She glared at me then turned around and went the other way. I said.."excuse me, your kid just hit me with that cart"! She kept right on walking and wouldn't even look at me. I regret not going after her and making one hell of a scene, but anymore you never know what people will do when you confront them. I am so sorry this happened to you and your hubby, and I feel your anger and frustration. No need to wonder why kids are so out of control these days when we see parents like these setting such a bad example. Vent all you want...I think we all have a story or two similar to yours. So sorry!...Love...Sue

    Pressure coming down
    Hi Sue,
    Yes, we all do have some crazy story in our lives. I think it pushed me over the edge tonight. I have had so much going on lately that something like this was just too much for me. I finaly broke down and just cried. I needed to get that out of my system. I think my BP is getting lower as I type. You all are such a blessing to me. Sometimes I feel so alone, but knowing that you all are just a click away has really given me a bright place to go to. I am hanging in, but am feeling very overwhelmed. I still have not called to set up the ultrasound, maybe tomorrow. I just feel like I can't handle one more crazy thing right now. I know that is stupid, my fear is taking hold. I know that they will tell me I need to have surgery. I just think that waiting awhile is okay for me... I hope you are still staying strong. I think that as your 2nd chemo day arrives you will be much better prepared. Experience is the key..
    Thinking of you..

    Much better day
    Hi All,
    Well today is a much better day. Talked to our insurance guy, he said he hears about crazy people all the time. I guess I'm lucky that I rarely run into them, or in this case they rarely run into me..LOL Hoping all of you are having a good day.. It really is one day at a time..

    Oh, Lola has not barked at all today. Nice and quiet around the house. Ahhhh

    Barking less
    Oh man, that would be nice, my youngest dog barks a LOT too. Hopefully someday she'll mature and chill out.

    Venting is a very good thing, and to have to deal with what you did is incredible. I can't believe people. Jeez...

    Take care, and hope today goes better for you!
