Annoying People and Things

People annoy me every day, Sometimes they just do too much. For the most part it’s my friends and family. I swear they drive me bonkers. Every time I thing my day is going good somebody wants or needs something from me. I get really frustrated because I don’t mind helping people in need but dang do I ever get a break. It never fails I always get a phone call or a message and someone needs me. Personally I don’t think I’m that nice so I don’t understand for the life of me why everyone always want to come to me for stuff. In my head I’m always thing can’t nobody get nothing for me but for some reason I always do what the person needs me to do.

Family and friends seem to be drawn to me whenever they need something extra. For example they want a ride somewhere, a babysitter, or even for me to sit and listen to them talk about absolutely nothing. I really feel some type of way when people plucking my nerves, I try not to be mean so I just keep my mouth shut. At times it really gets hard because I just want to live and not have to worry about other people and their problems. I’m only 17 and I feel like everybody and they mama shouldn’t be relying on me for everything.

If it’s not one thing it’s another, it use to be Tasha talking about babysit. Now it’s my aunt calling talking go do this go do that. She always want something from, like ugh do it yourself. Every time I turn around she like go take my cousin here, go pick her up, go take her this, it’s so irritating. I keep checking for stretch marks to see if I had a child because it feels like I have 4 children the way she and her kids run me up and down the streets. The thing that annoys me the most about my family is when one can’t find the other they call me. They will wake me up out my sleep to find each other, granted I usually know where they are. That doesn’t make it ok for them to wake me up for their convenience. When I get those phone calls my response is always “have you thought that maybe they don’t want to talk to you”. Sadly my family don’t understand that.

I feel like I should only have to keep up with me, I am only a teenager. If I wanted the responsibility of always putting up with someone I would have my own child. I just want to be me and be free. Another thing about my family that’s just burns my biscuits is my grandma and he constant calling. I love her to tears, she is my favorite person but she insist on buying a bunch of tablets and computers that she don’t know how to work. Whenever she has a problem she is on my phone. She literally calls me tech support. I wouldn’t mind helping her with her 1000 questions but she worked on computers for 40 years and acts like she is helpless. I could even see if she did it to spend time with me but she’s always ay my house so that’s not it. She has 2 other grandkids and she never calls them for help and they’re always at my house too. It’s like she decided retire early and turned into needy grandma.

Next on my list is my mom ugh she is worse than my grandma. She is the worse because I never get a break from her. She is another one who acts like she is helpless. My mom doesn’t work or do anything during the day. She is the laziest person in know, all she does is lay in her bed and watch TV all day, most days she won’t even eat until I get home and make me some food so she bums a meal off of me. She doesn’t cook so I have to or we eat out. It’s a wonder she isn’t fat. All day she bothering me like bring her something to drink or play the lottery, or go to the store. She pluck my nerves form the second I come through the door. She so lazy that if I don’t feel like and don’t cook she’ll go to bed hungry then try to make me feel bad. I’m just like last time I checked weren’t you the mom like dang you should feed me sometimes. What makes it so bad is if my cousin is home from college she will cook for that fool every night if he ask. She cooks Sunday dinner every week but it’s mostly something I don’t like so I eat something different than everyone else. Sometimes she’ll make me my own meal but it’s rare which gets me mad because during the week when I cook I can’t eat some of the stuff I like because she doesn’t like it, she doesn’t like pizza so if I buy some she will have an attitude for and a week. I can’t catch a break with any of these people I call family but it’s ok I’m moving away soon and they will only be allowed to visit 4 times a year and holidays.
