There are times, in this life, when all I want is to scream, shout and just carelessly throw an attitude toward nosy people regardless how their relationship with me. I don’t have a problem to say it out loud to strangers or to people I know of but not friends with that they should f*ck off and mind their own business. But things get a little more complicated when it is a family member who is annoying.
What I don’t get is that a family normally hides behind the word “care” while he/she is actually just being nosy. It’s not once or twice an aunt come up to me asking how much I earn or how much my husband earn from our job. It’s not once or twice someone come to me demanding to know whether I was paying for my mom’s house renovation. When there is something to fix someone will always come to me demanding me to take part in the money pool. And the worst part is that if I am not able to fulfill these expectations bad mouth will start to fly around.
The thing is when two people are working hard to be able to put their kids in the best school in town it doesn’t mean they shower in gold. Money is indeed tight and all we need to do is to prioritize. So to come up to someone in order to know how much money he/she earns every month or even to ask some money from them and when not given you talk bad about it, is really not cool!
Have you ever got similar experience like mine? What did you do?
