My father has always walked ahead of my mother. He will never, ever slow down to walk with her. Today he outright fussed at her for 'making' him wait. Well, fussed at us because I was walking with her. I even made a comment of 'You could walk with your wife.'
Apparently he is 'physically incapable' of walking slower.
And of course, my pointing out that he could walk with her meant that he had to behave like a child and take a different route back to the hotel just to beat us there and show just how much we slow him down.
So glad I'm going back to my place tonight. And back to my routine. Because his BS on top of my brother being back in the hospital for another episode and calling my mother roughly every other hour just to take up her time has me sick of family for another year.
