Decades later, I'm glad my scumbag, drunken, parents are dead, cause I was too stupid to realize, for decades, just what garbage they were.

An idiot dad who went to church every sunday, and bars all day Saturday, wasting half of the money he earned, so I grew up poor. My mom was just plain evil.

I was an only child, with no relatives on my dad's side---but I was still neglected. My evil mom's relatives were scumbags always looking, and getting, something free from my mom, including my own stuff that I had to hide.

And then there were teachers who could slap a student across the face---I got slapped a lot in front of other students. Decades later, I still hate school teachers.
