My MIL of 38 years - who has not spoken to me for the 9 years since I left her cult - died on Sunday.
Today, as a favor to my SIL who has spoken to me very rarely, for the same reasons, over the same period of time, I was moving some personal items to her home from the nursing home. In this instance I guess it is ok to speak with me - if I have a strong back and a conveyance that aids her needs at the moment.
Anyway, in the parking lot of the apartment complex where she lives, while we are moving in those items, guess who shows up? Five or six of my old 'best friends'. As we walk by toward my van, Jim [an elder whom I aided into the organization and was absolute best friends with for 20 years] waves and speaks a greeting to my wife but not to me. [She has been out exactly as long as I, just has not DA'd, because ironically she has been waiting for her mother to live out her natural life before so doing.]
I wanted to flip off the bastards. WHO yells a greeting to a man's wife and ignores the husband as if he is not there?
Paint me seething. The assholes.
