Some People Suck

I've had enough of sucky/mean people this week.

First, one of my kids at school was bullied this week and apparently it's been going on for awhile. This poor kid thought he had a group of friends, but in the end they made a club titled "I Hate (insert kid's name) Club" and said a lot of mean things to him. The poor kid was crushed when his supposed friends did this to him.

Second, I hurt when I read this post by NieNie yesterday. I couldn't believe that someone to have the nerve to say what that lady said. Seriously. How could you do that? What a b*tch.

Third, my mom told me tonight that some of my cousins (all from one family) have decided they aren't going to see my grandma anymore. Yeah, my grandma who has Alzheimer's and who longs to meet with my grandpa in heaven. She has a hard time remembering some things, tells us the same things over and over, and is confused frequently. But, she still knows who we are. Their reasoning is that she had favorite grandkids and that they weren't included in the favorites. I agree that my grandma had favorites but it isn't hard to see that her favorites are the ones who made an effort to see her throughout the years. I'm so hurt that adults would make a conscious decision not to visit their ailing grandma. I wish they thought about how much it would hurt and disappoint my grandpa if he were alive to hear their decision. Maybe that wouldn't mean much to them either.

Sorry for the downer post to end the week. Just a few things that I had to get off my chest. Have a good weekend.

Hey, girl! I'm sorry but I had to laugh when I saw the title of your blog post in my reader! I wondered what the heck this was all about. A LOT of people suck! Poor little kid. Why don't some parents teach their children how to behave anymore? I know there's peer pressure involved but still. I did read Nie's post yesterday & showed it to my husband. It made me cry. My late ex-MIL had Alzheimers. Some of her grandchildren & CHILDREN stopped going to see her. Their reasoning was that she didn't know who they were & she wasn't what did it matter? Sometimes I think the world's going to heck in a handbasket. Better go before my comment is as long as your post. And besides I'm tearing up again. Give yourself a hug from me. :)

Oh girl. I'm so sorry. mean people SUCK BIG TIME!

Bullies are horrible. That is one of my worst fears as a parent. That totally broke my heart to hear about that poor child. I bet he was crushed. I wish I could just hug him up and protect him. That is awful.

Yes, I read that NieNie post and I think I gasped out loud. I would love to find that person that said that to her and kick them! ha.

I'm sorry about your family situation. Someone in our family won't go visit the grandparents because "it's a small town and there is nothing fun to do there". OMG. Seriously. I think your cousins that are doing this....well, let's just say what I want to say would not be nice. What goes around comes around though. They'll regret it in more ways than one some day.

Hugs to you and I love ya! I totally understand how much this sucks!
