My parents are always trying to treat me like I’m still a kid. It’s so wild. I mean, here I am, a 32 year old woman with a Master’s degree in business, and yet they are still asking me if I need help paying my bills. I guess it is sweet, but it gets old. Just yesterday my mom called me up, and was going on and on about how worried she is about me living alone, and how she would feel so much better if I’d get one of the Alarm Systems out there installed in my home. It is not that I am against that at all, in fact, I may do that someday, but it is just the way she approached me. She came across as sounding like she didn’t think I know how to take care of myself, or that I am in danger in some way. Neither one of those ideas is even close to my reality. I tried to explain this to her, but she just doesn’t get it.
