We were just talking about careers, she was saying how my brother wants out of the restaurant and what is he going to do, and how everyone works long hours, including my H, that's just life. I told her H is looking for a different job, because it doesn't work to have him work as many hours as he does, with the two kids and everything, and how most partners' wives stay home, proving my point that it makes no sense.
Mom :"Well yeah, if he makes partner then you would stay home".
Me: "Um no, why in the world would I want to do that?"
Mom: "But he'd make enough money for both of you!"
Me: "So? How is that about the money?"
Mom: "Oh yeah, you mean you care about your actual "career"?"
I swear I could hear the "." and eyeroll in her tone and it makes me murderous. I told her I'd rather stab myself in the eye than stay home.
The woman has the ability to annoy me more than anyone or anything in the entire world. I'm scared I'll turn into her one day amnd drive my daughters nuts.
