Ladies, help me bite my tongue. easy child's girlfriend was given about 6 thoughtful gifts from my easy child. A watch, a scarf, a pillow pet that she wanted, 2 boxes of Whitmans chocolates, earphones...totalling $100. She didn't get him anything, on his birthday she didn't get him anything. On her birthday, On Valentines Day, on their "anniversary", he takes her out, buys her a gift and treats her like a queen. Plus, he pays for everything...they go out to eat and to the movies a lot. He worked hard all summer for his money that he uses to go to college, he pays all his expenses and is careful. He doesn't have a lot. But he is generous. This girl has a mother who works 2 full time jobs in 2 casinos. She works 7 days a week, 3 16 hour days, 4 8 hour days. Her father gambles for a living, or so she says. He used to work in a casino, but cannot speak English well enough. So whenever easy child goes over there, there is always all kinds of electronic equipment all over that her dad says he "found" in the casino.... she uses a found phone, her laptop and calculator, all "found" My easy child said to her that her dad stole all thos things. Anyway, strange. more later on that. So, here is what annoys me. The girlfriend's sister went to a Christmas party and came home with a Coach bag and all kinds of other nice gifts. So the girlfriend went over to her PILE OF GIFTS and put out her bottom lip pouting over her stuff. Her stuff that my easy child gave her!. He is so good to her and she expects the moon from a college kid. This girl never looks me in the eye either. They are not nice to him when he is there and speak chinese and laugh about him. The took him out to dinner once at a chinese buffet, in the middle of the night, her father woke her up and screamed at her about how the mother works hard and they shouldn't have to pay for her boyfriend's restaurant bill. OMG! We took her out so often, and easy child is so good to her. Thanks for letting me vent. I know this isn't my business and have to stay out of it. But....I want to say something so badly. I am sweet as honey to this girl by the way.
