Your mental state is very important to us. Hold that thought while we express ours, Your thoughts don’t really matter, you know.
That’s why we insist on a spotless house while the kids are around and we will badger you time and again about how cleaning help is expensive. That’s why we won’t train kids to clean up or reduce the number of possessions.
That’s why we will insist that a stomach bug is most likely a food poisoning and you are being a neglectful parent for being so careless about not obsessively checking your child’s temperature.
Your mental state is very important to us, we will rub in how OTHERS bother to drive over and visit while you, worthless person, will not. And you clearly never forget anything, so here is another thing for you to worry about.
Your mental state is very important to us, so we will not respect any boundaries. We will show up when we feel like showing up, not when you need help, not when we said we would, but when it strikes our fancy. We will come in and spread out junk that you did not ask for. We will take over your kitchen because you just think it’s yours. We will make deep-fried food and possibly treif things up. We will repeatedly bring over our own frying pan and leave it behind. What you think about this whole arrangement is your business.
Your mental state is very important to us, so we will not offer you a break.
Your mental state is very important to us, so we will be on our worst behavior. We will bring you grief time and again. We will do stupid things. We will eat junk, throw fits, not listen.
Thank you for holding.
Your mental state is very important to us, so make sure to hang up, slam that receiver, and take matters into your own hands. it will not get better. you will not get more time, more freedom, more options. You will not fell better. We will make sure to make you feel worse. And then we will blame it all on you. Strong people rise to an occasion. Weak people are supposed to take themselves out of the gene pool.
Your mental state is very important to us, so we will play music that grates on your nerves and then demonstratively shut it down because you must be plainly evil. We will take you and everything you do for granted. We will not even bother to do lip service of gratitude.
I cannot go on.
