lunatic and my mother
Ok so it would appear that my family is a magnet for crazies. The latest victim being my mother:
As I've mentioned in an earlier post, mom is in the hospital and I'm taking care of everything. Including her vast menagerie. I've found homes for most of them, but I digress. This ridiculous but true story involves my mother and a pomeranian she had.
Unable to care for all the animals, it was decided that the pomeranian (not the blind one, my daughter adopted that one) would go to the shelter where little dogs get adopted out almost as quickly as they come in. That was last Saturday. Thursday afternoon, right after I got to Mom's, a van pulls up. The lady gets out and wants my mom. I have no idea who she is. She demands to know where my mom is. I am SO NOT IN THE MOOD FOR IDIOTS. Long story short, that particular pom was microchipped and the info came back to that lady. I tell her mom is in the hospital and the dog is NOT a priority for me at that moment. She says she'll take the dog back if I pay the shelter fee ($50) I DON'T THINK SO. She leaves.
This is where it gets out of control:
yesterday morning, while in transition care, mom has a stroke and is rushed to the emergency room. My husband goes over there and when he gets to her room in E R, there is a strange lady he's never seen before and she's got mom signing a piece of paper. Husband blows a gasket and gets the lady thrown out. We have no idea what is on the paper. All he could find out is that it had something to do with a dog. He tells me what happened and describes her to me and I tell him it has to be the same lady from Thursday. I'm livid. Absolutely LIVID. Mom is in the emergency room having had a stroke that morning and that whack job is bothering her. I've got her name and address and soon so will the police. How dare she????? and what was on that paper????? Mom isn't coherent enough to let me know. The nurse who witnessed the paper (and is now in trouble for it) has no idea what she witnessed.
