My mum called me a little bit back and was like "Angela I just forwarded the email your grandparents sent me, you have to read this. I FUMED when I read it. They are /horrible/. I will note when I post the email, they did not send it to me. I'm pretty sure they knew I would say something. Not ONLY did they show no sympathy for the passing of my grandmother, they insulted me, and made me look like some immature little kid. I don't know what to do with them anymore. It's like they are there when I need something but when I'm around them they treat me like that distant cousin you want nothing to do with because he is in some wierd cult or something. I so much want to call them and tell them what I think. It's just that they are both old and are not getting older. Anyways here is the letter. Dear Mark(dad), Donna(mum), and Virginia(sister), Just talked with Virginia who has arrived at LAX on the Van Shuttle trip from Santa Maria this morning. The NWA snafu certainly affected Virginia's timely return to St. Louis and her Dental Assisting job and her Summer School courses in her college. Talked with Mark and Virginia last night about making arrangements for Virginia to arrive in St. Louis today, Saturday, and not Sunday, June 24, connecting with the AA Flight 768 this afternoon @ 2:15 PM with an arrival time in STL @ 7:55 PM. This afternoon flight will enable Virginia to get a good nights rest and some relaxation with the possibility of studying on Sunday prior to work on Monday and her Biology classes Tuesday and Thursday evening. Glad that we could make the AA reservations and take care of the $360 fee for Virginia's sake. Understand with Grandma Roebuck's passing Donna and her brother, Victor, will inherit some thousands of dollars from the land in Lancaster; Grandma and I do welcome the later payback for Virginia's ticket for her last visit with Grandma Roebuck. (WTF AT THIS?!)Mom and I still wonder why Donna did not make the trip to see Grandma Roebuck for the last time. Virginia mentioned that Grandma Roebuck may have recognized her and Angela.(No she didn't. But what ever.) We have signed and mailed a nice card to Donna expressing our sympathy at the passing of Grandma Roebuck. (whoops, maybe there was, but one sentence... and the stuff before like deleted the realisticness of their sympathy.)Understand that Angela is getting along well with her cousins from Uncle John's side of the family; still Angela can't get along with Virginia; Angela certainly has some growing up and maturing in both a psychological and a personality wise scenario!!! (WTF. My sister was all freaking out and yelling at ME. So my first reaction is to yell back. She hits me and she walks away too fast for me to hit her back so I have to kick her.) Grandma and I look forward to making a May 2009 trip to St. Louis to attend Angela's Hazelwood East graduation. Maybe we will make the trip to attend Angela's Hazelwood East graduation when she is ONLY 25!! Can only pray that she pulls her head out and up and realizes she NEEDS the high school diploma to even qualify for "fast foods" employment; certainly Angela can read and write far better than the typical black student who graduates with a diploma from Hazelwood East. ( What can I even say to that? They called me a loser and made a racist comment about my school and friends ALL in one paragraph. My grandfather is a miracle worker.) (((The rest didn't matter, it was just recaps on what is going to be going on.))) Yours truly, Grandma and Papa Do any of you have family like that? They completely hate my mother, and talk about her in front of me. They are fake when they actually meet her family. They are racist, and they hate me because I date black guys, and I look and somewhat act like my mother. I just so much want to yell at them and tell them what I think. NO one I know has had the balls to do that. They are so old though, I just fear that them disowning /me/ would make them remember me badly. I'd also lose w/e they wanted me to have when they passed, rofl.
