Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I really don't like the way my husband (49) and daughter (20) talk to each other.
Husband: Hey, whore!
Daughter: Hey, slut!
Husband: (singing) Kat is a tramp, this I know, for the Bible tells me so
Daughter: Now I know why your ex-wife went crazy
These are just a few examples. Can you see why I am not too thrilled with the way they talk to each other? Although they are just joking, I don't think it's appropriate. They are crossing the line. I cannot imagine talking like that to any of my parents or stepparents or them talk to me like that.
I have confronted them both before and they both told me the same thing: "We're just having fun". But sometimes they go too far and actually hurt each other's feelings (like last night!), and guess who gets stuck in the middle?
I just want them to grow up and stop talking to each other like they're teenage girls. Do you think I am overreacting? Have you ever been in a "situation" like this?
