The Deadbeat Mum
[background: my best friend and I consider ourselves “married”]
Me: I am getting a cat!
Nan: Ooo! A kitty? OMG! i demand the rights to co-own him!
Me: My sister will contest your claim to that.
Nan: I am your wife, I get priority over your sister.
Me: Co-owning means co-cleaning, co-feeding…
Nan: nahhhh. i just want the bragging rights.
Me: if we are to have this child, i am not going to raise him by myself!
Nan: i’ll give you child maintainence money xD
Me: Keep your money. This cat doesn’t need a deadbeat mother!
Me: This conversation is going on my blog
Nan: the fact that i am now the proud co-owner of a cat is going on mine
