it only finally ended because I just said "*I* am going to babysit [nephew] at noon, and I don't care when you show up or what you do when you get there or how you get there in the first place!"
and then they STILL called me back one more time. EFFFFFFFFF.
ps i'm 1000% sorry i even mentioned that my anime club's picnic was this afternoon and that i said i might maybe show up possibly because now i wouldn't go to it if you paid me one million dollars, except for the fact that it would get me away from my family and their inability to exact useful phone conversations for five solid minutes.
goddammit now i really need a coke.
