My dear Toxic Sister has a 7yo son. Our mother graciously takes care of him, for free, when she can on school holidays and such. This, of course, has lead to extreme levels of entitlement from Toxic Sister. Note: Toxic Sis refuses to hire a babysitter or nanny to care for AngelBoy because "He's my responsibility and no one else's" and also because "I simply cannot trust anyone else to care for my child". The real reason, of course, is that she is too cheap and too controlling to allow any non-family member to watch her son.
This summer, Mother wants to take a month-long road trip with her hubby. She told Toxic Sister this far in advance, so that she would have plenty of time to find other arrangements. The following conversation ensued, in all its ironic hilarity:
MOM: We'll be leaving X date and coming back Y date.
TS: Well, you'll just have to take AngelBoy with you, then.
MOM: No. This trip is for Hubby and I. You will need to make other arrangements for AngelBoy.
TS: BUUUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTT! AngelBoy is YOUR responsibility in the summer, NOT MINE!
SHATZIE: [barely-contained laughter at the hypocrisy and the sheer nerve of her]
MOM: He is your son and therefore your responsibility. Find other arrangements.
TS: You can't do this to me. I need you.
MOM: No. You will need to find other arrangements.
TS: FINE! I'll just TAKE A LEAVE OF ABSENCE from my JOB and PUT MY FAMILY IN FINANCIAL DANGER. **flounce**
SHATZIE: [leaving the room to go laugh]
