Since I had left with Ana, I did not witness the vulgarity of Thomas’ tone with my mother. I had seen him behave this way with countless people over the years, but never with my mother. I have never spoken to Thomas again after that dinner party and I really do not see myself getting over his behavior towards my mother and friend. Mom was not surprised by the way Thomas spoke to her because she too had seen him act this way before over the years. I think we both have grown too old and tired to put up with that kind of behavior anymore.
