I was grabbing lunch today and the woman in front of me was complaining to her friend, ?she woke me up earlier than normal?, and ?I have to make sure I?m home in time to make dinner to her liking?, and I assumed she was talking about her MIL. Then the woman?s friend asked how long ?she was there" for and the Complainer said, ?My husband has her for 3 weeks during the Summer. She?s such a pain every other weekend when we have her, I don?t know how I?ll make it through three weeks?. I was dumbfounded. This grown woman was talking so horribly about her SD. The contempt and disdain in her voice when talking about the girl was painful to hear. I ordered my food to go and practically ran away from her negativity before I could hear anything else she said.
I feel so sad and angry. I?m sad for the girl who?s SM clearly wants nothing to do with her and obviously resents having her around. I?m angry at the girl?s father for allowing such a poisonous woman around his daughter. I?m sad for the BM who probably knows how horrible the SM is and still has to send her daughter there as often as she does. And I?m especially angry at the SM for being such a b!tch. I could never imagine talking that way about K, or even thinking those things.
I guess now I know why the "evil SM" stereotype is still so prevalent
