Day 645

A bad night

A terrible time with Sunny last night. Several times I asked him to pack before supper so we could relax and watch a film afterwards. ‘I always leave things ‘til the last minute.’ ‘I’ll do it after supper.’ ‘Don’t tell me what to do.’ He’s hungry so I tell him to go down and I’ll pack his case. I don’t want to be kept awake by him packing in the middle of the night. He storms off telling me I’m selfish and that I should let him do it. I have asked him often enough.

When I’m drifting off to sleep he asks where is his charger is. I can’t remember. He is furious. The I remember he lent me one and give it to him. He refuses it and starts to unpack the suitcase looking for it. He is telling me what a selfish f*cking c*nt I am, repeatedly. He had told me not to pack his bag. Why couldn’t I leave it to him? I remember that I haven’t packed any of his chargers. They are all on his bedside table I tell him. I put my ear plugs in. I am profoundly sad and full of self pity.

    I wonder why Sunny is like this? I wonder why you let him speak to you like that?
    What is going on here George? You have taken him on holiday, done your best and he cannot even show you some basic respect. xx

    I know. It's incredible. And he doesn't even appreciate that he is in the wrong. He hasn't apologised. I think he's very immature and I'm not strong enough with him. But what could I do? I was stuck with him and I wanted to get on with him as best I could. Sunny is like this because he thinks he is a grown up but clearly he's not. Owl has tried to talk to him after a long cathartic chat on getting back home but Sunny won't relent. Owl says that he won't understand for a few years yet. He needs time to grow up. It's very tough.
