This last weekend my mother was over visiting and I offered to let her sleep in my bed, since I was going to be partying most of the night. We watched a movie together, then I spruced up and she got ready for bed, and I left her alone in the apartment. I spent the night living it up, flirting, drinking a bit and having a generally awesome time. I ended up falling asleep at my friend’s house around 4am. At 7:48 am I wake up and instantly check my phone. There are two missed messages from my mother. I instantly call her back, worried about how she’s doing. She tells me that she had to leave early that morning, around 6:30, to drive the four hours home in order to get some boys to church on time. However, since I live in a gated community, she would require an access card in order to leave. That early on a Sunday morning there was no one around, so my mother was forced (after calling me twice with no answer) to hop the pointy, tall fence, suitcase and all, in order to get out of the complex, and home in time.
I am an awful daughter. Possibly the worst. How do I make up for inadvertently forcing my mother to act like an escaping convict from my own apartment?
