Trigger warnings for abuse (verbal/emotional) and just general icky stuff.
So essentially I had to leave my apartment and start living in a women's shelter. My childrens' father was neglectful and he just... There were issues, to put it mildly. We moved and I have been having to deal with the change and my children adjusting too.
I understand that I am lucky to be here. I understand that I am fortunate to be able to be here with my kids and not deal with a lot rougher things. But I'm not dealing well with the other girl I'm living with. She does not understand that you don't just take other people's things, or do as you please in a communal living situation.
This girl ate my food, drank my drink and is essentially a spoiled, entitled brat. She threatens and berates her children on a daily basis, tells me how much she "wants to beat the shit out of them" and "can't stand their dumb asses." I have also seen her threaten them with a belt on numerous occasions. I have never seen her hit them before, but I'm pretty sure she most likely has.
Her kids are never in bed and asleep by 8 as per house rules, and they are loud and obnoxious. When I used to have to wake up at 5am each day to get to work, I used to be pissed off because this was completely unacceptable when kids would scream and run through the house until after 11. I have loads of patience but seriously.
This girl is loud, obnoxious and seems to think that the world revolves around her. People are giving her all these chances and paying half her rent when she moves out of this "transitional housing". She keeps talking about her "drug dealuh, gang banguh" (her own words, exactly how she typed it) boyfriend and it pisses me off to no end. She is 23 years old, with FIVE kids, which two are not with her because she left them behind with her mother. AND SHE WANTS MORE.
I just don't even. The more I think about it the more angry it makes me. I believe the last straw was tonight when she moved the chair I had my swollen feet on because she wanted it under the table. Beyond angry right now. Seething.
