I purposely slept through my nephew’s birthday party
I’m 22 and am currently living with my parents until I can find an affordable place to live on my own.
Today we had a birthday party for my 4-year-old nephew, and I pretended to not feel good so I could go to my room and “sleep” until everybody left.
The reason being, my nephews (4 & 5) drive me absolutely insane and I can’t stand being around them. I dont just mean they annoy me, I mean I feel no love for these children.
They are extremely hyper and constantly cry and whine literally every 5 minutes when they come over.
Now I know every kid does that at those ages, but these kids are different.
The 5-year-old is constantly running around, screeching and yelling, and getting into stuff. These kids do not listen to anybody, and my brother and his wife threaten consequences but never follow through.
My mom tells me I need to lighten up, but they literally make my blood pressure skyrocket because they make me so mad and overwhelm me with noise and chaos.
They were wondering where I was today during the party because I never left my room.
I pretended to be asleep anytime someone knocked on my door because I didnt want anything to do with those kids.
