A successful entrepreneur shares her thoughts on business success and failure.

Random Grumblings

So I called my mother today (er, yesterday, now), and I finally told her that FG and I had broken up. The first words out of her mouth are, “Oh no! He was supposed to help me buy a new car at Christmas!” And then, “And I even bought him a Christmas present! … Do you think he will still help me buy a car?”

Alright, Mom, I’ve just broken up with my boyfriend/best friend of 7+ years, and the first thing you can think about is he’s not going to take you test-driving. (I told her he probably would anyway.) If anyone wonders why I hate talking to my mom on the phone, this is why.

BTW, I called my dad on his cell a few days ago and he abruptly hung up the phone on me because “your mother is coming into the garage and I don’t want her to know we’re talking without her involved. She’ll just get jealous.” So now I can’t talk to my dad either. I actually liked talking to him. ๐Ÿ™
