It's like I'm feeling things about a situation that no one else thinks. I've been helping out my parents recently at their business and my sister and her BF also help out, or should I say "help out
" - atleast for my sisters BF anyway.
He's SO LAZY! He shows up 1/2 an hour late some days, has 1 hour lunch breaks when everyone else gets 20 mins. When he gets to work - he just gets the paper or a magazine and reads it while everyone else runs around him cleaning and serving (it's a convenience store) - including me and my sister. He also fixes himself breakfast when he turns up, his lunch is covered by my parents as bosses, and then he calls before coming out to our place (me and my sister still live at home) to check if we made him any dinner
Also when at home - he does nothing except buys movies off the television and eat our food! It makes me so angry! He gets $600+ a week, pays no rent anywhere, barely pays any food because he eats all my parents and STILL he has no money by weeks end and my sister has to pay for everything he wants (she works, goes to uni, and is paying off an apartment).
Now to top it all off, my parents are raising my rent because the cost of living has gone up so much
I explain that maybe he has something to do with it and they tell me to stop whinging
I feel like I'm going crazy and doing EVERYTHING for the family and getting the least return of anyone. At the business, if someone calls in sick - my parents always make me work instead of my sister (fair enough, with uni) or her BF (not fair!) and I've worked nightshifts for 2 months because they can't find any, while my sisters BF works Monday-Friday 7.5 hours a day. He has EVERY weekend off and I've worked every weekend for 2 months! Is this fair or not because I'm the only person around here that thinks I'm doing more and getting less.
Now to top it all off, my sisters BF told his coach that my parents are loaded (they aren't!) and his team want to be sponsored for $8000! for one game of football that is taking place 600km away from where their business is and they said yes! 2 days after they're asking me for money! (they leant me $2600 for fixing some windows and doors at the apartment I'm paying off) but they only leant me that 3 weeks ago and i said I'd pay them back after i buy my second apartment (because I need money sitting their so the bank can see i'm saving) but that will only take 1 more month - and now they're saying i'm selfish and spoilt when I do atleast 10 hours unpaid work at the business alone and am constantly doing work once i get home as well (feeding animals, fixing pipes and fences). atleast i'm planning on paying it back, but my sisters BF wants the $8000 as like a gift?
when I bring this up with my family (obviously not my sister or her BF) they say i'm well supported and i shouldn't be complaining - but i'm honestly completely exhausted, tired, underpaid, overworked, stressed - some days i want to die because the toll this family, this business and this unfairness is taking on me is just too much to bear. i cry in the shower almost every other night.
also i just finished work (working 2 hours over, on a saturday, which i wont get paid for . and when i got home my parents asked me sister, and her BF if they could work tonight - they said no (no reason) so my parents told me i'll have to do another 4 hours tonight
i say no but they just say yeah and have monday off. and then monday comes and i have to work again i bet
KILL ME! i honestly wanted to drive my car off a bridge on the way home
