I've made my thoughts abundantly clear on things like this before: "Literally I have no problem and actually want to watch it, too...if you give me warning." As in. Before I have actually planned my day out, warning. Not, "hey we want to watch this literally now".
So I'm a bit ticked off right now.
I have told them this multiple times.
I have told them that I can watch it with them if they actually tell me about it.
But I need to have the advanced warning, so that I can actually plan on not being able to do anything else.
Because by default, without that advanced warning, I plan on being able to do everything else.
I really don't know how that is so freakin' hard for them to understand. I warn them of my plans every time I think they could prove inconvenient. (Not that they actually remember, or communicate to each other, about said plans, but that's not my fault; I communicated to them and them not accounting it isn't something they can blame on me.) Why do they think I shouldn't have the same courtesy?
I can accommodate them really, really easily if they warn me in advance.
Like. Ridiculously easy. As in, five minutes, easily. Because I am ready for it, I am prepared to "do nothing" for the day, and react appropriately.
I cannot accommodate them much if at all if they spring it on me last minute while I'm in the middle of a very long daily plan. Which Saturdays, by default, always are. I reserve a lot for Saturdays. I mark them as a time I am unavailable, both for work and for mafia. But in spite of that I do a metric ton of work on that day anyways.
So for them to interrupt that, without warning, is...really something they shouldn't be surprised at when I react with a very strong negative implication of "NO"? My time should be my time. Their time is their time. I don't interfere in their time. Like, my parents even were out at their favorite resort today, albeit doing work preparing for a party they're the hosts of. And they came home late.
As in, after 8, late.
On a night where I haven't eaten yet.
And where I usually go to bed after midnight given I work in the early mornings Sundays. (Speaking of which, something I haven't checked yet is which morning shift I am working. There's no doubt I work tomorrow, but which shift makes a different in my routine and I need to ask.)
I had planned out an approximate use for every single one of those three hours. About an hour for blogging, about an hour for eating, and approximately one hour for wrap-up across the internet, said wrap-up being something I will now have to cut short and am very angry at. (I had to log out abruptly and suddenly, leaving work unfinished.)
If they inform me of their plans (THIS IS A SIMPLE THING TO DO ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY WERE AROUND WHEN I FIRST GOT UP!), then I can adjust my plans. But if they don't inform me of their plans, then they really shouldn't react so negatively upon discovering their plans conflict with mine...because they didn't. bother. to. tell. me.
