In The Word's Of The Eagles
So, I called GB’s mom yesterday. She was, as reported, super sweet! The big jerk! Don’t you hate it when you do something wrong and go to apologize and the other person is just so nice about it. It makes you feel even worse. I’m not really sure what I was hoping for. I actually was not upset at her for being nice. It made it so much easier to apologize. But if she had been kind of rude I think I would have felt a little more justified by my actions. She also never admitted that maybe her son had taken my son’s car, (Maybe he didn’t, maybe he was just reclaiming his own car. Could’ve been either of theirs, we’ll never know) that would have made me feel better too. I think I wanted her to apologize back to me for GB taking the car out of Buddy’s hands. So apparently I did not completely learn my lesson. I think the lesson was, don’t bully little children and apologize when you’ve done something wrong, and then let that be the end of it. As in, let it go, act your age, get over it, show some class! Someday, maybe that will be me. In the meantime I guess I’ll just keep apologizing for being “that mom”.
