Do I just have a short fuse? - June 8th 2009, 04:03 PM

So my sister's friend is extraordinarily irritating to me.
Everything my sister says, she agrees blindly and wholeheartedly.
Now, this is no issue except for when my mother [who has psychiatric problems] pleas on the phone for us to come visit her and my sister is like, "No, then it'll waste the entire day...it's still noon." and her little friend chirps up, "Oh yeah, it IS only noon." I just want to look at said friend and be like, "Shut-up."

Unfortunately, also, she is allowed to sleep over a lot, so I have to deal with her. >_<

Or when I'm like, "I don't think it's safe to walk in the dark...around the streets and stuff.." My sister says, "But we want to see the sun set!!" and the friend says, "Yeah! Sun sets at 8:30!!" o_0

My sister is also a year younger than me. 15.

Live and let live.

Hi Olivia,

I think that this is something you should really talk to your sister about. It sounds like her friend is just following her lead. It may be because her friend has nothing special to say of her own, or just wants to do what your sister wants to do.

When this comes to upsetting your mom, and safety on the streets, then I think that it needs to be made absolutely clear to your sister what is right and what is not right. Get a parent to back you up if this makes you feel uncomfortable. Let her know that your mom really likes to spend time with you and your sister and that it really hurts her feelings when your sister doesn't want to go. Just tell her that it is not 'wasting the entire day' because it's time you are spending with your mom- that is never a waste.

As for the streets, they can be dangerous at night, and that has nothing to do with when the sun sets. It can be dangerous at any time. Let her know what kind of precautions she can take and talk to your parents about a curfew.

Take care.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
