|Days when your stepfather is being either over-protective, or is questioning his self-worth. |
Posted that I got a new dresser over on Facebook - stepfather called my mother, and asked why wasn't he informed about this. Now, my old dresser was a cheap piece of junk that didn't have working drawers, so I just piled my clothes on top of it. Earlier this year, my bathroom was remodeled, and that guy did a very good job, even redoing the bottom of the shower when the one idea wasn't working. Turns out, he does dressers and shelves, and other such things. Annoyingly, I'm short on a desk, but he's working on one for me - Christmas presents from my mother.
He's also calling about my friends on Facebook - I have 122 of them at the moment - most are friends through school, others are relatives of either me or my friends, some are people from work, or people I work with, with one or two being folks from right here.
I'm 29 years old - I can make my own decisions, and with respect, he's made plenty of bad ones, which I hope to learn from. I mean, what if I came home with that Special Someone, and said someone turns out to be a guy named Hank? Now, I'm straight, and I'm fairly sure that I'm into women, but every now and then, one finds out that they are actually bisexual - how would he react to that? Or, better still, went out hunting, and brought home a buck that surpassed everything he'd ever seen, let alone shot - how would he react to that?
