OK everybody, I get it. I have to give my Mom a break.
I wasn't so much upset with her as I was with those stupid lazy servants that take up so much of her free time. Mom explained the servants are getting old, and they will be retiring soon. When the servants retire, new faster virtual servants are taking their place, and Mom won't be responsible for them. Until that happens, though, Mom says she may have to work a few more weekends.
I don't like it, but I understand.
Mom and I have a good relationship, and whenever I ask, she sits down so I can climb into her lap and get as many scritches as I want. She also lets me express my opinions, which is really pretty cool.
