Urban Dictionary TOP DEFINITION

crotchety

An adjective used to describe an old person. More specifically, someone who seems to hate life in their “golden years” and feels the need to take it out on others.

It was a rough Sunday:
An Amazon package arrived at my Parents and I got a phone call.

I bought Dad a 5# weight bar from Amazon.
I bought him safety handles for the toilet from Amazon.
I bought him non-slip strips for the shower from Amazon.

I bought him what the OT (Occupational Therapist) and Nurse told me to buy.
And he was pissed.

I said, “I am so sorry that you feel like you are losing control, I just bought what the nurse and OT asked me to buy so you would have it available.”
He kept stuttering and yelling, so I just said “good-bye” and hung up.

(Thinking, NO, you cannot use the bathroom door handle to help you get off the toilet.)

But, I guess it’s ok that I bought my Mom pee-pee pads from Amazon. I didn’t ask.

As I was feeling so tired and defeated from the week, travel, work headaches, plus my Brother and, now, my Dad – I received a gorgeous text from my Sister-In-Law:

“Dear, dear dievca. Thank you for all of your efforts. We just got the 3rd call from Dad in 10 minutes. My husband is laughing that you are never ever going to come home again.”
“(insert my last name) males are tough.”

So, like, do you think I should buy that book (above) for Dad and ship it from Amazon?

Umm, I’m not doing so well at this elderly parent thing – no Catholic heaven for me, huh?

Hope your Monday is better than my Sunday – hell, it can’t be any worse.

Bloody Mary, anyone?
