God... This day just keeps getting better: *I woke up with a sore leg *I had a argument/unpleasent exchange with my friend on text *Katalin got harassed by a Boxer while we were out on a walk *I'm skimped but I had to pay my cell bill of $77 *I got into a huge fight with my grandfather *I got into a bigger fight my brother and mom I just finished visiting my grandad at his place with my parents and brother. He was unbearable, delusional, clouded, and really just quite a arrogant a$shole. He was rather quiet to start out with - then he started talking about how he saw someone else with the same sort of dog as I had, and that he heard my dog barking in his basement over 150 times which he counted (.....). After that he started going on about how he traveled the world, a water spring in his home, and that because of that he owned the United States. Things got bad when he started saying that he was with my parents when they went for a medical appointment when my mom was pregnant and the OBGYN did the ultrasound - he saw me; and declared (this evening to my face - I'm not sure about the actual time of ultrasound) that I was his property. I flared up and yelled and said that we were in North America 2012, that no one, especially him, could claim ownership over any other human being and that I wasn't anyone's property, but definitely not his. He said something about me being property of God. I said if I believed in any religion or not wasn't his to say. If this isn't bizarre enough for you at this point, brace for impact... He says something about how many cars do I own at a hotel. I say I don't own any car nor a hotel. He asks if I know where the boundary of the hotel property was - I say I have no idea what he's talking about. He says I am good for nothing because I can't answer those questions and all I have is a dog and that my boyfriend and "parents in law" rejected me because of not being a virgin. I struck back with a "f@ck off!" and telling him how none of any of my life was his business at all, how I haven't shared anything with him because I don't feel comfortable, and that even if he isn't feeling well or clear in mind it was no excuse to speak in that manner about those things. I lost it and called him a "deluded bitter old daydreaming fool". He said even if I didn't like it I was a part of his life and that he could find out what he wanted of me through his computer (he has never touched a computer let alone owned one in his life) - he said his "flat computer" could show him everything (my cousin must have showed him pictures on an iPad/tablet when they visited him I'm guessing). I said "Fine, where is it? show me" - he replied "It's not it's in China in the book!". After I shot a few choice words his way I stormed out into the backyard and was visited by the neighbor's off-leash Golden which I played with for a while before everyone else finished with him inside. He's been arrogant all his life - he's the type of person that thinks whatever he does is always unquestionably right. He believes he has authority over the younger folks that are related to him just because he's a elder of the family. Doctors diagnosed him with mild dementia not long ago - it's very apparent and hasn't helped him become anymore pleasant. My relationship with him has been a long, complicated, strange, and twisted one. We've been close at points but...it's been difficult, very difficult. He isn't open minded and sees it as his business and responsibility to get involved in anyone related to him's business and lives. I try to be on "good behavior" when in his presence - especially nowadays. But it's really really difficult when he gets all high and mighty about things and starts talking down to me. There are alot of people out there with dementia, Alzheimer's etc - but they don't go around talking random sh!t about others. My attitude, insolence, and radical non-conformist attitude towards family are definitely big factors in this and I am to blame for quite a large number of things as well, but I have tried as best I could to make things smooth/easy for us - he has full knowledge of how I feel and how he has made me feel and he doesn't try to change an iota, nor does he think he's doing anything wrong. *deep breath* OK. Thanks for viewing and letting me get that off my chest. A night of dog walking, cold beer, an article on dog shows, and Youtubing wildlife shows awaits.
