Ages ago I posted a thread on here about a very annoying 'stepdad' who I don't actually consider to be a stepdad - he isn't. He is just my mum's partner and even she doesn't consider him my stepdad.
He is a really really unpleasant man - my dad died 5 years ago now and he has on repeated occasions told me how everyone locally hated my day (which I know for a fact isn't true) and how my Dad had 5 or 6 affairs in the time he was with my mum (which I also know isn't true). He says that local people have told him all of this. He just makes up all kinds of lies and tries to sound like an aficionado about every subject mentioned!!!
I took an interest in antique silverware and started buying and selling it on ebay a year and a half ago, then about 8 months ago he decided he had this wonderful idea - to buy and sell silverware on ebay. He started doing this and consequently I was made to stop because I was 'in competition' with him and he didn't like that. This is really really annoying as it was a good source of income for me, and it meant that I didn't have to go out and look for a job as I'm still at school.
Anyway, the most recent development as of a few weeks ago is that I'm not allowed to practise piano in the house when he's home because it distracts him when he's watching the TV!!! I'm not even allowed to practise the electric piano with headphones in because the noise of hitting the keys distracts him!!
I will add - he is at home ALL of the time. Literally, he hasn't bothered going to work for 5 months and he just sits around the house doing nothing all day! I know he sells silverware, but he never really makes a profit (unlike myself) and he used my mum's credit cards to buy the stuff to start selling in the first place, and because he just buys more and more before he sells the things he's got, she's ended up with ?16000 in credit card bills thanks to him!
The two of us had a real set to on New Years Day which involved him backing me into a corner upstairs when my mum was downstairs and threatening to 'teach me a lesson' and 'smash my face in' so I just lashed out and pushed him backwards and he fell down the two little steps which were behind him and hurt his back (he deserved it, imho) and I went into my bedroom. The result of this was that he was going to move out, because just before he did that I said to him that I hated him and wanted him to get out of my house (I have lived here 18 years and he has lived here 2.5 years AND my mum didn't even ask him to move in, he just did). Needless to say, he is still here and although he said he was moving out 3 weeks ago, he is still here.
I just needed to rant here tonight - I just went to go and practise 20 minutes ago to find that he has removed the AC plug in cable for my electric piano so I can't use it at all.
Can't practise... need to rehearse for Music A level performance, plus an upcoming concert in which I am playing piano for the school choir... I really hate him!
