It was about a week before my birthday. My sister–away at college–called me to ask what gift I wanted. Mind you, she had (and still has) no job. She gets pocket money from my parents when they can afford to spare a few bucks.
So I said to her, “Don’t worry about buying me anything. Keep your money.” My tone of voice was completely normal.
She hung up.
I called her back and asked why she hung up.
“You made me mad. I didn’t think you should have said that. I want to buy you something.”
“OK, but hanging up was rude. You can send me a nice card. That will be perfect.”
“Are you done talking?”
*hangs up again*
My guess is that she must have been smoking on something really special that day–weed became her #1 hobby when went off to college. Smh.
Narcissistic behaviors/traits displayed by sister:
- Highly reactive to criticism
- Very easily hurt and offended
- Hyper-sensitive to harmless comments
Note that my sister’s actions are very similar to that time my mom hung up on me, too.
