Converstaions with a teenager - Part Dos

Being the mother of a teenager has it's ups and downs. He can run to the store for me, watch the baby if I need him to (bribery involved of course), I can leave him home by himself (for the most part), so when texting with him involves his girlfriend, I tend to get a bit snippy.

We are leaving for SC next weekend for my cousin's graduation. 4 days, that's it. Drive one day, there two and drive home on the fourth day. Really not my idea of fun. We will be staying with my grandparents, so it's going to be cramped quarters as it is.

Let the texting begin.

"Hey you think Kalee could go with us to SC"

"I don't know Matt, we'll discuss this later"

"Mom it's already bad enough i kno you don't like my girlfriend just let her go"

"Being your girlfriend has nothing to do with it. I'll have talk to grandma about it"

"Yes it does. I called grandma and she said she could go"
(Now that just pissed me off to no end)
Back to back texts
"No I want her to go"

"Matt we'll discuss this later"

"Great mom, she is my girlfriend and I want her to go. The only reason you won't talk to grandma is so you can say no"

"Fine, you guys go and I'll stay home"

"Are you serious. You won't go if she goes"

And again (duplicating is a wonderful thing)
"We'll discuss this later"

"You really won't go if she goes"

"It's not that, we don't have room at Nana's"

"I'll talk to you about it when I get home"

"Finally you understand"

The conversation started up again at 10:30pm with a "Buuttttt Moooommmm". I told him if they could go from today until next Tuesday without fighting like they had been married for 20 years...I'll think about it.

Anyone got a padded room for me?

2 have this to say:

Want I should kick him in the balls?
Or better yet, kill the gf and hide her body?
