Graduation and Parental Woes
As some of you may have gathered on here that my Dad and I have never really had a nice loving relationship.
Well the last 9 months I have been finishing some uni work. My dad has felt that he needs to be involved every step of the way, insisting I email my work to him at regular intervals. I failed my final yr at uni, partially due to a university cock up which I have now been working on. Since finding out I failed everytime I have spoken to my Dad he has lectured me about being a failure, if I ever went out he'd moan for days that I should be home studying. I had my in-laws to be over for Easter Sunday evening meal and he has winged everyday about it even though I spent the whole day working on my uni stuff.
Anyway this morning the Graduation pack arrived, I phoned my Dad with my Graduation date and he turned round and said oh I'm dubious about putting the date in his diary as I'm a screw up that doesn't work hard and will probably fail again. He then said I suppose this'll be more expense and I said yeah if he wants photos and he said well you can pay for it all. It's not the money - he's a millionaire. It really upset me and I don't even wanna go to Graduation as he's just been so mean and rude and don't want him there.
Am I being silly?
