Addicted to a fake idol
Dad was pissed today. It takes a lot for him to get upset. I got that from him.
My brother has been gong to his cult twice a week. Every time he walks out in a black suit and blue tie. Then he asks my dad to take him to the church. The church is in the OTHER side of town, is a long ride. When my dad cannot take him, my brother asks him for cab money. Both ways.
Last night my dad only had $20 bucks that he wanted to spend in breakfast for the family until he gets out to do business. Then my brother showed up in a suit, asking for a ride or money. My dad reluctant gave him $5 for a cab ride. My brother said that he will get a ride back later, or course, he couldn’t. I guess his cult people are his friends inside of the church, once he is pass the door of the temple he is on his own. My brother called me dad and asked him to pick him up. My dad was already wearing his pajamas. So, my brother demanded the cab to be paid when he arrived.
My daddy was pissed. He handed me the money and told me that this was ridiculous. That my brother thinks he is rich, only taking cabs, and assuming he always has the time and the money to cater to him.
When my brother arrived later, I simply told him:
-“Daddy is pissed at you”-
Then my brother tried to explain to my why he took a cab.
-“I was coming from afar, a bus would have taken me a while, so I figured….” - I stoped him mid-sentence and I said:
- “Don’t explain yourself to me. My dad is piss at you, not me”
_ “I wish I could find a better solution, but I can’t”
After that comment, I was the one piss.
I bit my tongue, but does my brother honestly thing that there is not solution to his religious addiction than to spend money he doesn’t have in cabs? Or that gong to a cult that believes that the Son of God is a Korean fraud born in the 60’s?
