I'm SICK of it >______< - October 17th 2010, 11:17 AM

Every.Fucking.Morning. I wake up and my parents just aren't here. They CONSTANTLY go places without me, don't tell me where they're going and don't answer their phones when I phone them. They know full well I worry and I get anxious about this :| WHY can't you answer you phone at least? Or at least tell me where you're doing? When I ask them that they say "you were sleeping" well, I'd prefer you to wake me fucking up instead of worrying for three/four hours >_____<

I'm just sick of this routine. I wake up, nobody is in, I phone my dad, no answer, I phone my nan's house, no answer, I phone my sister's phone, it's switched off, I phone my sister's house, no answer. Then I end up getting hold of them about three hours later.

I don't know why I STILL worry about this :/ this has been happening for years.

I remember one day all this happened and there was a FLOOD in my kitchen and I didn't know how to fix the washing machine and ONCE AGAIN I had no answer >____<

Ugh. I understand how frustrating that can be! When my car broke down, and I wasn't able to get in touch with my dad, I FREAKED OUT. I've always taken my dad for granted... I assumed he would have the solutions to all my problems if I called him. The problem is, he's not always able to pick up the phone. Sometimes he's in the middle of a meeting, other times he's commuting and doesn't have a signal, and there are occasions when he just doesn't feel like bringing his phone while out with his girlfriend.

I would like to suggest three things:

1. If you haven't already, tell your parents that you would like for them to wake you up, or at least leave you a note, whenever they leave the house and don't plan on answering their phones.

2. Start looking for other people whom you can call in an emergency (ex. a neighbor, extended family, a friend of the family, an older friend you trust).

3. Start adding phone numbers to your list of contacts, so that if something goes wrong (and you can't get in touch with anyone), you'll know who to call (ex. the company that insures your car, a plumber/mechanic for household appliances).

On one hand, you should be able to get in touch with your family members, in case there is an emergency. On the other hand, just because we have cell phones doesn't mean we should be available 24/7. There comes a point when you have to start taking the initiative, making decisions when no one else is around to make them for you. If you can consult with your parents first, great! If not... then at least you'll be prepared and won't have to wait around for 3-4 hours before they call back or return home. =)

I'm sorry you're getting treated like this, parents can get like this sometimes! Maybe you could try to talk to them and let them know that you'd like to know where they're going when they go out. If they don't want to wake you then ask them to leave a note maybe. Or atleast have their mobiles on! All you can do really is to let them know how they're feeling and hope that they change things.

I think Robin has a few good ideas though, I'd do those. Take care
