MY DAD:Monster in law




Monster in law

Originally uploaded by sen_s_babe

IDEALLY WE WOULD HAVE LOVED TO NOT STAY AT MY PARENTS AT ALL BUT DUE TO THE CURRENT RENT/ACCOMODATION CRISIS HERE, IT WAS OUR ONLY AFFORDABLE OPTION.

AND THANKS TO DAD NOT REGISTERING US WITH HOMESWEST WHEN WE ARRIVED, THEY’RE ACTUALLY NOW WANTING TO INCREASE THE RENT BY DOUBLE AND HE’S NOW HAVING HISSY FITS ABOUT THIS.

IF HE HAD BOUGHT THE PROPERTY OUT 15 YEARS AGO, WE WOULDN’T HAVE THIS STUPID PROBLEM. BUT NO, HE’S STILL STICKING TO HIS RETIREMENT PLANS TO MOVE BACK TO MALAYSIA TO BE NEXT DOOR TO HIS DEARLY BELOVED BROTHER UNCLE KADIR ONCE HE’S TIME’S UP.

BECAUSE OF THIS, HE’S TREATING AYMAN AND ME LIKE SHIT. PICKS ON THE TINIEST OF THINGS LIKE, IF OUR CLOTHES HAPPEN TO BE IN A CERTAIN CABINET -HE’LL GO MENTAL AND SAY WHERE AM I!!! GOING TO PUT MY CLOTHES. OR PICKS ON THE WAY I DRESS -THAT I’M NOT COVERED ENOUGH. AS IF ANYONE IN THIS HOUSE WAS NOT MY MAHRAM. HE NEVER SAYS SALAM TO AYMAN, HARDLY ACKNOWLEDGES HE’S THERE EVEN IN THE SAME ROOM OR IN SOCIAL GATHERINGS. WHENEVER AYMAN’S WATCHING THE TELLY AND HE’S JUST ARRIVED BACK FROM WORK. IF AYMAN DOESN’T EVACUATE HIMSELF IN 60 MINUTES, HE STARTS YELLING AT ME TO TELL MY “LELAKI” (MAN IN MALAY BUT QUITE DEROGRATORY WAY) TO GO SO HE CAN WATCH HIS STUPID SATELLITE TV. EVERY WEEK HE COMPLAINS TO MUM ABOUT HOW MUCH BILLS HE HAS TO PAY DUE US INDIRECTLY HERE, YET WE’RE HARDLY EVER HOME MOST OF THE TIME. ONLY TO SLEEP IN MOST CASES AND WE’RE EVEN COVERING THE MONTH’S RENT FOR HIM AND STILL THAT’S NOT ENOUGH.

SOMETIMES I WISH HE WASN’T MY DAD…

AYMAN’S ALWAYS THREATENING TO MOVE OUT BUT HAVE ME STAY BECAUSE ITS MY FAMILY. AND I KEEP TELLING HIM THAT THAT’D WANT ME TO GO IF HE GOES BECAUSE WE’RE MARRIED.
AND HE COMPLAINS WHY HE’S BEING TREATED LIKE SHIT ALL BECAUSE OF NOT BEING ABLE TO LAND OUR OWN PLACE AND DAD KNOWS WE’RE GOING OUT VIEWING AND APPLYING FOR RENTAL PROPERTIES EVERY WEEK AND NOW APPLYING FOR A HOME OF OUR OWN, THAT HE HAD EVERYTHING THERE -HE’S OWN PLACE AND HE HAS TO RESORT TO THIS SHIT HERE. I FEEL FOR HIM…

AND WHEN HE ASKED ONE OF DAD’S CLOSEST MATES THAT NORMALLY FREQUENT THE MASJID WHY DAD’S LIKE THIS- UNCLE WAHID’S REPLY -BECAUSE HE NEVER APPROVED OF OUR MARRIAGE. LIKE HIS WAY OF AUCTIONING OFF TO DAUGHTERS WAS ANY BETTER.

JUST WANT TO GET OUT OF HERE AND AFFORD TO BEING ABLE TO LIVE UNDER OUR OWN FEET…
