Shan, my mother is 68. She never had a job (other than being a mother), never really did much housework, and always had high expectations of other people and can be very critical (although she's softened a bit in recent years). She doesn't have a grasp on what it takes to do things and is not terribly sympathetic to others when they are sick. She sometimes fakes being sick or having low blood sugar and I don't know why. In some ways she is a very caring and generous person and in others she is apathetic. It's odd. My friend's grandfather is in his early 70s and I think he was raised in a culture where just being an older white male meant people were automatically supposed to defer to him, always think about him, and do everything for him. He's been disabled for over 30 years so he's had people waiting on him hand-and-foot and pretty much demands servitude from family members. Without my friend there to dose out his meds for him, he's been taking them incorrectly again- so he's taking his night-time meds in the day then calling people on the phone and falling asleep. He repeatedly called my friend and his fiance when they were at work and when my friend finally answered all he did was yell at him for not coming over to clean his house-- my friend doesn't have time bc he doesn't have a day off until December. The fiance is having some issues. I swear the girl is mentally challenged. She has the attention span of a fruit fly, starts talking over people while they are talking to her, or gets on her phone and starts reading messages or even calls people during a conversation with another person. She also is unable to grasp very simple concepts-- like, she doesn't understand that having a cold is not a reason to go to the ER and that they won't be able to do anything for her. But she has panic attacks about things. My friend is highly intelligent but he keeps dating girls who are below average intelligence and I don't know why. Gary, that looks awesome! Havasu, I just stepped in dog crap in the kitchen so I feel ya. Geriatric dog as well-- and I found the dumbass with her nose in the litterbox like she was trying to eat out of it. I put out more food for her and had to grab her behind her front legs to pull her over closer to the bowl because she just stood 4ft away staring at her full food bowl stupified. Other than the dog crap, I had a good day. Played Elder Scrolls Online, cleaned up the kitchen floor, brought in stuff from the car (that my brother was supposed to bring in but didn't), cuddled the cats, made stuffing for dinner again, and ate a donut.
