Making A Grocery Misjudgment

| Related | January 7, 2016

(My mom and I were putting away groceries and talking when she eventually makes a racist generalization. I tell her, in what I think is a polite manner, to cease making comments like that. Later, this occurs.)

Me: “Where do I put this?”

(She ignores me.)

Me: “Mom?”

Mom: “I’m not gonna help you.”

Me: *taken aback slightly* “What?”

Mom: “I’m mad at you. You were mean to me when I was just trying to have a normal conversation with you. Screw you!”

(She says more, but having already been put off by her reaction, I tune her out. Soon after, I’m attempting to put something in the fridge but run out of room.)

Mom: “Stop and reorganize that! Figure out where you’re gonna put things! You can’t just shove things in there!”

Me: “I thought you weren’t going to help me!”

(She said nothing for a little while.)
