It has now become painfully apparent that the frummies will return yet again tonight. I did enjoy a two day break from sloth, ignorance and jokes that have not been funny long ago. They left the kid here so they have an excuse to return in force again and make yet another failed attempt to place one teen on an airplane. Naturally, the attempt will take place at 3AM on a Monaday morning to prolong my agony.
Then they will be so exausted they will go 40 miles out of their way and return here.
I have read the emails about converting. In my community when this happens it causes parents to mourn as if their child is deceased. I have zero inclination to cause my parents any further annoyance. Life has not been easy to either and I have no desire to make things worse.
What bothers me is the total lack of consideration for others. They are the center of the universe and we must bow to their whims. This same relative was annoyed because I didn't want to deal with him on Thanksgiving or any other time. They have other family meembers who don't get annoyed at their antics so the point of this is unknown.
I have grown to hate these obnoxious boors. They show no consideration for others and zero responsability. It used to be merely annoyance, but now it is hatred. I am glad you walk another path, but spare me lectures. I have no interest in returning in life or death. I chafe at enduring endless rituals and have no desire to sit in a Temple.
I find these relatives to be an embarassment.
