I never mentioned that I wanted a gym membership.. or that I wanted to get fit but my Mum must think i'm a big heffer because for christmas she gave me a gift voucher of a joining fee and one month's membership to a gym.
She stressed that it had cost her $250 and that I had to go and that if I thought it was worthwhile then she would continue to pay for me.
Well, i went last week. I've never been to a gym before. I felt like I was being pulled by my ears and when I got home I did the right thing, smiled and pretended it was the best thing ever.
Today she asked me if I could afford to keep going. I most definitely cannot. It's a struggle to put petrol in the car and keep food on the table. And besides, did she not say she'd continue to pay for me? It appears that she's changed her mind.
I feel really ripped off. Like someone's bought me a present that I didn't want and that I have to outlay a LOT of money for.
I don't know if I'm being selfish. And I don't know if I can bring this up with her becaues of the stress she's put on the $250 she's paid.
Anyway, I woudl just like some perspective on this. I know it seems like a silly, small thing. But I just feel so stufffed around and disrespected. And that if I don't continue the membership then I've wasted her money. araghargharh!!! FRUSTRATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!
