I feel so sorry for mommy. This has been the worst week by far for her. For some reason, people think it's appropriate and alright to take out their temper on her. Well, she snapped this week. Enough is enough, and I have to say that it's obvious that people aren't able to control themselves with her, and it's about time that the dragon woke up and she breathed some fire on them. The bank handling the refinancing of their house lost the original paperwork they sent last week, and then called with a very nasty attitude about it. She spent the better part of the day Monday yelling at them for that one. They got it in order, but she raised so much heck that they wound out transferring the loan to a different loan officer.
Now they're paranoid and calling her several times a day. The whole mess, along with keeping up with her job, has caused her to relapse with her sinus infection. So she did the right thing and made 2 telephone calls: 1 to get an antibiotic for her infection, and 1 to a lawyer to set Bank of America straight. It's somebody the family has known, and who has a reputation for not taking crap from people. He will set them straight in short order. The bank isn't happy that she picked a lawyer of their own and not one from their "preferred list," but, as she told them, the damage is done and she's going with somebody that she knows she can trust and is wholly on her and daddy's side.
It's unfortunate that she snapped, but I think it's high time that she sent a strong message to people and the universe that she's a responsible adult that deserves respect, and it's not acceptable to come at her with sass or attitude. It's a shame that people think it's alright to be disrespectful and rude to her - or anybody, for that matter. Even we birds know there are limits and boundaries, and we respect them. You don't see me crashing Chloe's cage and getting in her face, do you?
Speaking of Chloe, she's got a birthday coming up! She'll be 13 on May 20. She wants a Surface Pro for her birthday. Heh heh. Mommy said she's getting more bird toys and treats. Guess we'll have to keep borrowing mommy's laptop, eh?
I pray things improve for mommy and she feels better soon. Daddy, Chloe and I have been working overtime trying to comfort, help, and sooth her. She's really wanted to start on the Anipal Land story, but this mess has delayed that - another reason why she's disgusted with these people. She took a sick day today, which is probably best for her. She needs some time away from the world to recover.
That's all today. Have a Happy Friday tomorrow and a wonderful weekend.
