This is not really very surprising to me or anyone I know, but I think it makes for a good read, so I'm going to write about it anyway.
I will start by recapping what just happened to me that made me think of this.
I'm sitting on the couch searching through various blogs when my mother gets home from work. She proceeds to sit down at the table and ask me how my day was. I answer "good" and she then asks me if I'm working tomorrow.
I will pause here and explain something about my work, even though I've kinda already explained it a little bit here.
I have been working at this cafe for about four years now, so naturally one would think I have at least a little bit of say in what my schedule looks like, right? Wrong. I have asked several times this semester to not be scheduled every day of my weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I got lucky and have no class on Fridays, yay!) because when I have to work all weekend and go to school all week, I find that I have no time for anything else, i.e., a social life (big shocker, right?). So, I asked to work on Wednesdays instead of a weekend day because I only have one class on Wednesdays in the morning. However, the lady that does the scheduling at work just really likes ignoring me, even though I think she's afraid of me since I give her deathglares every time I see her. So, this either means she's pretending to be afraid of me, or she's really dumb. Or both. Whatever the reason, I still always end up working the entire weekend. So, as you might guess, I'm a little more than annoyed.
Back to reason for this post. After my mother asked me if I was working tomorrow, I proceeded to say, "No. I get to work all weekend. Again. I think I might set her computer on fire and hope it blows up when she's in the room." <-- I was referring to the lady that schedules me, in case you didn't pick up on that.
I think it would be only natural for a mother to be at least a little concerned about her child's mental soundness should her child say something like that, but what did my mother do? She brushed off my comment and started talking about what we should have for dinner. Why would she do this? I shall explain.
Ever since I started high school, I have pretty much hated 95% of the people that I come in contact with. This is mostly because I find that most people are either incredibly stupid, obnoxiously immature, or disgustingly self-absorbed, and I absolutely cannot stand those kind of traits in a person. So, instead of trying to change people and be a saint, I decided to take on a darker, more violent persona. This means that for approximately six years now, I've been sending empty threats to everyone that pisses me off. And this adds up to about 20 death/bodily harm threats a day. And that is why my mother ignores me when I tell her I will cause bodily harm to someone. And I will admit that she is right to do this, because I cannot even kill a spider the size of my fingernail. Go figure.
