He's not a bad guy or a liar. The problem is that he's a salesman and not a manager. He can sell anything, he just doesn't know how to manage the details in order to deliver on what he promised. Despite the healthcare snafu, I still like and respect him. He seems genuinely intelligent, well-meaning, and NOT evil. That's far better than anything I have to say about W. [ Reply | More ]

I'm sure you were shocked and embarrassed at that moment, but I agree with the idea of later, in private, calling your mother out on this, mentioning this specific incident as a recent example, and telling her how it makes you feel. It may be such an old habit with your family that they aren't even giving it thought (even though obviously it's horrible and they should). [ Reply | More ]

It only made me more frustrated and angry when she would do something that just didn't make sense to me and appeared irrational or self-sabatoging. I am much happier and we get along better now that I have relinquished any idea of control and just let her live her life. I don't offer advice or try to help her any more.
