blew up in front of my dad. he is the kind who isnt technologically savvy. he tried to fiddle around with voicemail and did something to it and now cant even dial any numbers. tried going to support and even they couldnt give me support fast enough..kind of left me to fend for myself. i shouldnt have shouted at him but sometimes...he and i..we cant get along. do i respect my dad the way he is now? no way. we dont even have any quality time together. all the drama over a phone. yes, i could of talked to him in a rational voice..but since he is hard of hearing i have to raise my voice..and that makes me mad. when i shouted at him, he just shrugegd his shoulders like "oh well thats the way it goes" -kind of atitude..which i hate about him. we used to have shouting matches a lot..and now it has resurfaced again..and this, the new month of the new year.

Oh man that sucks. Just remember you can't change anyone. That sort of drama tends to be very draining. Hope you get to patch things up with your dad eventually.

They say you can't choose family so you just have to make the best of it I guess.

So how would you like your dad to be, if you could change him?

i want him to be more compassionate. and have enough knowledge of how things work, tech-wise. and have lots of patience.

he is in his early 80's. the older he gets, the more moody he is becoming. although there are times when he will be calm and collected.

You can possibly expect your dad to get all tech-savvy at that age chuckle.gif He's just not that into it apparently. Did he make you play the violin against your will?

He's getting up there, he won't be around forever. I'd just accept him as he is at this point. And forgive him. And try to react differently.

Hmyeah.
Time to let him be old.

You'll miss him when he's gone.

I sure miss my Dad...his annoying sides and all.
