I wonder if there's a word to desribe this type of person. As I stated previously, my mother has Parkinson's disease. One of the effects is she has difficulty walking. She may take 5 minutes to walk 30 feet, while I help support her. Now, my sister complains how I do this. So, I counter that she should try it. She replies she has. Unfortunately, this was maybe 4-5 years ago when my mother had more mobility. Then, while I was helping my mother to the car, my sister makes sure the neighbors hear her "concerns." Yet, most of the time, she's in her room while I help my mother eat, drink, sit up, walk, etc, except for the rare appearance. It's akin to having firefighters put out a brushfire and someone comes along, throws his coffee on some ashes and then claims he put out the fire. So, is there a word for this? I'm not very good at defining behavior. I honestly didn't understand what a jerk was into junior high.
