Gets right onder your skin, doesn't it

I'm breaking my norm for a little venting session, so sorry if you came for some funny.

Have you ever noticed how peoples true colors tend to shine trough so brightly in the time of a family crisis? My Grandfather passed away a couple years ago of cancer. My Grandmother was,of course devastated and turned to her sons and daughters for support. But I'm sure she didn't foresee how much their support would cost her. You would think that a family of seven adult siblings would be able to take care of the woman who has been there to care and support them through all good and bad in their lives, well you'd like to think so, wouldn't you? This is where the true colors earlier mentioned comes into play. Out of the seven brothers and sisters only two are not being absolutely ridiculous about my NOT YET DECEASED Grandmother's home and possessions. They have been picking apart each other and everything material that my Grandma owns since my Grandfathers passing. These are the saddest, most uncaring, selfish behaviors I've witnessed in my family in my 30 years.
I know it's a hateful thing to say but I would very much enjoy talking with their close friends and co-workers about their actions, shit if I could I think I would tell everyone they know, since they obviously don't seem to care enough about their mother to care what she thinks of them. Granted, my Grandma does have her own faults, but no one deserves to be treated this way especially not by their supposed loved ones.
My father happens to be one of the two siblings that aren't battling for money or the will, or "that table that I have loved since I was a kid". My Dad asked me to try and keep from saying anything or voicing my opinion on matters and I have respected his wishes(with the exception of now), but I had to get rid of some of this anger and frustration. With all the B.S. from my childish Aunt's and Uncle's I have watched my Grandma's health deteriorate and seen my Father age so very much in the past couple years. It breaks my heart.

What actually stemmed this need for release was that I had my Dad over for diner and a movie tonight and halfway through the movie he broke down and started telling me some of the horrible, spiteful, hateful things that are going on right now. I just can not fathom how it's possible for people to be so cold-hearted and cruel. I am beside myself with anger for all the wrong that my Aunt's and Uncle's are doing. And I'm furious with myself for promising Dad that I wouldn't say or do anything about it. I guess I'll just hope that what goes around really does come around because in my eyes they deserve no less.

Thanks for listening.

Purrfect story of stupidity and yes, screw-up siblings.

Well, just to share you a related story. 3 years back, my grandpa passed away - leaving a huge country house and a farm. The very same day - after burial, the siblings sat together and decided that the 6th son will take care of the estate and live-off the land. Just that everyone want him to take good care and not abuse it. See, a huge family of 9 siblings (one lady) could be so generous and united. My granma lived another year and passed away too. No one making a fuss over her golds and other things - we all have our own lives to take care of.

It is not worth fighting over so little, after all when we die we don't bring those things, do we?

Just be respectful your dad, and appreciate him for not being one of the idiots. As for the idiots in your family, there are still your bloodlines and respect them as well caused one way or another they too love you - even sometimes they act like idiots.

OK, girl? Have a nice life my dear.
