oscuro Posted July 22, 2017 Share Posted July 22, 2017 My mother currently lives with me and my girlfriend and she is aware that in another year my girlfriend and I want to make some big life changes and possibly move somewhere else. My mother knows that she is not invited to tag along for that as it would not be appropriate. In another thread I posted previously I spoke about how I felt disdain for my mother's "intelligence". I expressed how I felt guilty for viewing her as not very smart. People justifiably said I should care about her character and see her as a human being deserving of love. Sure. So this human being who deserves love seems to have a hard time doing lots of things that would expedite her process of moving out of my apartment. I sent her a job listing that might interest her. She asked if I could call the listing and "apply" for the job on her behalf. I told her no because she should gain comfort doing that on her own. She responded with "I'm very comfortable. I just don't know the right things to say." So I told her, through email, to say something like "I'm interested in the job and have some experience". A few hours later she responds to my email telling me she called but she forgot to mention that she had experience. In some respects I'm glad she called and I'm not shocked she screwed it up. She needs to learn through her screw ups (I'm not sure how you forget to mention experience). However this is a perfect example of why I hold disdain for her "intelligence". I am trying my best to assist her in living but I need to build a life with my girlfriend. We are fairly young (early 30s). My mother's incompetence can not be my responsibility for the next several years. So in a year she needs to go and frankly at the pace she's going, i seriously think she'll be homeless. Suggestions? Should I just kick her to the streets or hate the rest of my miserable life living with my mother? Link to comment
