"Bite and hold your tongue. Shut your mouth. Don't say anything."
How does one do this their whole life is a mystery. My father isn't the most liked person of my family. He demands respect when he doesn't do so to anyone in return. He can be very VERY rude and in the process, really annoying. Just awhile ago during dinner, he said out loud," You(my mother) talk to her. She doesn't understand even a bit of English" when the waitress was right beside him. He also jumped a red light after bitc- complaining about people cutting him and honking at them. Later, on the way home, he asked my mother if she had an extra packet of cigarettes and my mother answered yes but with some annoyance in her voice. He then starts to say things like "Watch your tone" and "Don't order me" and "Show me some respect". Honestly, if he WASN'T my father, I would have given him a huge yelling but then again, I WOULD only give him a yelling cause he's my father.
Anyway, my mom's argument back was that "If you can take care of yourself, you wouldn't be abusing your body" and "Then, why can't you respect us and not smoke in front of everybody". As you should be able to see, I show a huge bias in this argument as I love my mom to the fullest as she raised me up with the most care and affection while my father leaves me with a huge lacking of good memories and a sack load of bad memories where I cry to sleep or feel like throwing a brick into his head. Fun fact: All my injuries from when I was a kid was due to my father being careless of stupid. My first injury was of him dropping a plate on my foot. A deadly injury was when he almost crushed me in my sleep as a baby. So yeah. I can't say anything good about my father.
I also saw something creepy just now on the way back home in the lift. My brother and father were talking about something and at one point I looked away, into the mirror. My father's face looks disgusted and somewhat grotesque so I quickly turned to look at him then back at the mirror. His face was normal again. Am I just hallucinating or is something just wrong with me?
