Caring for old parents

January 8th, 2011 Mlungu

What a screwed up world we live in! Have you noticed that in many families the caring for old parents always falls on one or two siblings?

Almost without fail there is a sibling in the family who does bugger all to help and care for the aged parent. They are always too busy, have no money to help and generally shirk their responsibility.

When they are asked to help they always have a pained, oh poor me, expression and response.

Well I say screw you brother or sister. Why is it my responsibilityalone to care for Mom or Dad – why is the time and cost not shared equally? And in many cases the selfish sibling is wealthier than the rest – like they are too important and busy. I wonder if it happens in Black communities? – Maybe ubuntu sorts that out!

Man I hate that.
