What is up with addicts… clean or sober do they have NO sense of time??? He called me just before midnight to ask me/tell me he needed to borrow his car. I have work in the morning. I am NOT on a “up all night, sleep late” kind of schedule. So, There were several problems with this scenario:
- He does not have a car.
- His sister is now the proud owner of a VW Pssat. (actually she hates it but whatever)
- If his ex-car was available I could not in good conscience lend him one because as much as I want to trust him. I am not willing to do so with a car.
I felt bad but really didn’t dwell on it much. I said no and goodnight while he was still trying to give me 100 reasons why it was important… I hung up. I know exactly what this call would have turned into and I just really wasn’t into hearing…”You are a terrible mother who can’t even do this one thing for me blah blah blah. Amazingly after I hung up, I went to sleep. No OBSESSING! Go figure?
