Between fighting with Amara to take better care of her dog or I’d threaten to find Penny a new home, to simple things like asking her to please do the dishes when it’s her week to do them, all she does is snap sarcastic remarks back, defend whatever stupid action she does instead of taking any responsibility for them, or she’s just plain rude and yells at the top of her lungs.
Just me asking her this morning if in the future she could please not drink my pop and leave only a tiny gulp left in the bottle, (when it wasn’t her drink to being with and she had no right to drink it) I was met with her rolling her eyes and retreating into her room. No freaking respect at all.
Even my mom has vented to me many times about how she’s disappointed in my sister, who just turned 19, at how she doesn’t have any kind of relationship with her, other than when Amara needs my mom to do things for her. She’ll tell, not ask, my mom to drive her here or there, or to give her money for whatever clothes and junk that she’s just going to throw away six months from now anyway. And yet when she’s had a rough day and my mom asks if she wants to talk about it or if she can do anything to help, Amara totally shuts my mom out and refuses to communicate with her.
Amara will go to her friend’s house for the night and only call and tell us at the last minute where she is, and so we’re stuck taking care of her dog. I get so very pissed off at the fact that she’s always complaining about how her job doesn’t give her enough hours and she has no money, yet she somehow has $135 to spend to go see a show like Hair, but she doesn’t have $20 to buy Penny a bag of dog food.
She doesn’t do her own laundry, and she barely helps out with any of the chores around the house at all (unless she’s having friends over, then she might actually pick up a cloth and do some cleaning). She complains about all of the animals in the house and how she hates living here so very much, yet she doesn’t even think about actually saving up her money to move out with a friend or something.
You can’t communicate with her at all, and when you try to she just yells at you that she doesn’t want to talk about it now. So when _will_ she ever want to talk about the many issues that she chooses to be completely oblivious about?
They say blood is thicker than water, and that may very well be, but I prefer water, okay? I swear to gods whenever I actually do have enough money saved up to move out of here, if I never have to see Amara again that would suit me just fine. I know a lot of people have told me that when she’s older we’ll probably get along better, but as far as I’m concerned I don’t have a sister. I honestly don’t want to have anything to do with someone who is as rude and selfish and insensitive as Amara is. >.
