In my mind my father says that’s not the way to do it.
I say that’s the way I do it and he says if I do it that way the curtain will pull the rail down with its weight. I say, whatever, and leave a gap where he said the extra screw should go. He says he’s not responsible for this, and I say he’s never taken any responsibility for anything.
I would like to tell him he’s the one who’s left the gap, but if I do, he will say he’s just doing my bidding, and I will end up disagreeing with him and we will end up fighting again. If I keep this conversation going we’ll end up where we always do. He will leave the room in a huff and say it’s all my fault.
So I shout at the wall, ‘It’s all my fault.’
