Pod People

"Who are you , and what did you do with my parents?"

I don't know these people that claim to be my parents. They are not the same people I use to know. They are not the people I grew up with. These people are different.

Do you remember the movie, "INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS"? This show freaking scared the crap out of me. Now I know why. My parents are replaced by Pod People.

My parents are not the same. They don't make sense. They are not using good judgement. They are not being rational. Where did my considerate parents go? When did rudness become acceptable? Where did their common senses go?

Don't blame old age! I know way too many Oldies! I am no Spring Chicken either! Just because you get old doesn't constitute jumping into quick rash decisions and playing Russian Roulette with your lives.

I miss the old parents. The ones that thought things out (at least a bit better than now anyway.) I want THEM back.

I don't understand. They are so crazy! Gambling with their futures. Not thinking about consequences.

I am so torn and sad. How do you handle a couple of Pod people?

A friend of mine just had to rescue his dad from several hideous scams he had fallen for. When my friend explained what had happened, his dad became furious with him. It's all straightened out now ... but it was hell for him.

So sorry you're struggling in your own situation. I hope your parents come to their senses asap!

Hi Janis, of course I do not know what the rash decisions of your parents are, but Hubby and I are experiencing a similar situation, only difference being that we are the parents. While our children were at home, all our decisions were made around what is best for them. Now they have left and we have the freedom again, after thirty odd years to make decisions based on what we want and need and they obviously experience it that we have changed and quite often don't like what we decide and do. It is quite funny how they seem to think that they now know what is best for us. I do hope that it turns out that the situation with your parents are similar and not really serious enough to cause them damage.
