Is it that hard to just listen?

My parents drive me crazy, batshit insane crazy. Don't get me wrong, I love my parents and would do anything for them, but they just can't freaking listen.
Haley started school last week and my parents randomly showed up at our hours 3 minutes after she got off the bus, now for a 4 year old 6.5 hours at school is pretty tiring, so Vicki was getting her a snack and letting her relax a bit before asking about her day etc... Not my parents, in the door they come and bombard her with question after question till she had enough and got cranky, naturally that's when they left. Tuesday you ask? same. Wednesday. same. Now Thursday I talked to my mom and told her that it's great that they want to spend some time with the grandkids, but it would be awesome if they would call before showing up. 3 hours later, in the door the walked, not only did they not call, but they don't even bother waiting for Vicki to answer the door, they just walk right on in. Friday they were out of town. Thank God. Over the weekend we talked again and I once again told them it was fine to come over, but call first so they can at least make sure Vicki is ok with it. Today 3:45 rolls around and through the door they walk. I give up, I don't know what to do now, since I'm never home when they come I can't get super pissed at them or it looks like Kiki's getting me to do it. Maybe we should just move.


  1. The saying "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" comes to mind. Maybe Vicki can lock the door, or give Haley her snack in her room with the door closed and a video playing while she distracts your parents with "oh can you take Tyler outside for some sun?" or something like that.

  2. This blog is just to nice. I'm not a sociable person, I need to work up to being social.

    I'm going to sit around the house topless and wait for them to walk in on me then maybe they'll learn that or I'll lock the door and not let them in.

  3. I vote you just sit around topless.

    I'd give advice, but you all know how well we do with crazy family. So I'll leave that alone...for now.

  4. If you sit around topless, you may find me stopping by often during the day.
