If you're an adult then act like it
My dad again. He can be quite nice and fun to be with most of the time, sure. As long as everything is fine. But if one thing goes wrong, not according to the way dad thinks it should be, he throws a fit. He starts talking talking TALKING very loud, swearing, shouting even for hours in the end, at me, at mom, at the entire word. It's always us who're wrong, he's always right, nobody can point out his mistakes because then he'd accuse them of "attacking" him. And it can be over anything, really, he may misplace his PJs and won't be able to find them, he might found out he's missing a CD and he doesn't remember who he lended it to, something doesn't work, something is broken, something has to be fixed but he doesn't know how to fix it.
When my new computer arrived, the HDD was loose because a screw broke, he ended up shouting for hours, literally, over it, how everything went to shit, how it was all a mistake, how we shouldn't've gotten a new computer, he made me feel guilty as hell.
And it's like this whenever there is a problem and whenever he has to deal with something, whenever he makes a mistake, whenever he has to fix something, I'm not even f**king exaggerating. Talking to him about it doesn't help. He'll either promise he won't do it anymore (but he will anyway), or say that's just his nature (taking everything out on his loved ones?).
Just, shut up, dad. I can't stand you anymore. Please shut up, please be quiet, I don't want you to shout anymore, please...
And the worst thing is that outside of that we can be best buds because his sense of humour is the same as mine and stuff. Even if he can be pretty slow to get some things.
Sorry if it's chaotic. I'm pissed off, since dad's yelling at us again. Because he can't find a CD. That's not our goddamn fault, so shut up and resolve the problem quietly. Like an adult.
