Default Just need to vent...however...

I don't want to come across as whiny and negative like my mom was acting during my last visit with her.
It was definitely the wrong time to decide to go over there and I should have known better. She got a nasty rash from some type of plant and was spending the evening trying to take care of it. I understand and that wasn't the issue. The issue was the way she was complaining and stomping around, just being all angry with how she looked. She care A LOT about appearances.
I had a bit of some conversations with her. But then she started complaining that her sister doesn't call her or pick up her phone. The woman started her own business a few years ago and lives out of town. I know that business owners are very busy. My mom was getting all hot about it and I felt really comfortable. I thought it best that I don't mention I talked to my auntie just last week. Otherwise all ____ would break loose and I would get the wrath of my mom's narcissistic rage.
Later I decided we should watch a movie. I loaned my mom a cache of my movies and she chose one. She has difficulty setting up the T.V. but refuses to allow me to help unless she tells me to do something, and doesn't listen to me when I tell her if something is right. She had trouble at the beginning, then after the movie she wanted to rewind it. Once the movie was finished rewinding my mom didn't know it was done. I tried to tell her. She got ticked off and started complaining once again about how the VCR wears her down and thought the VCR was acting up because the movie is staticky at the very beginning of the reel. She knew it was like that. But instead of waiting or calmly figuring it out she immediately gets flustered and has a tantrum. She left the room and I took out the movie and put it away. My mom comes back and tries to rewind again. I was like "mom the movie it out." It was like she was completely oblivious to anything. She's like "what, you took it out before? When we were rewinding?" "No, just now." " When? What is wrong with the VCR then?" facepalm and shakes head.
I just wanted to go home.

When people are in those moods.....remaining calm and not reacting to them is the only way to not let things escalate. Sorry your visit was not a stellar one!
About all you can do is endure it, smile.......and then take your leave!
Let's hope it was a side effect of nerves about the rash.
