  • Yes, because she had no right to snap at you like that.
    Who doesn't get more than one kind of pizza for a party anyways...

  • It's just pizza. She shouldn't have been rude to you, but listen to yourself. You're getting mad about pizza. Let it roll off your shoulders. There are more important things to worry yourself over.

  • Well, IMO you're both being immature about this. Its JUST pizza. However, you are her sister, not really a "guest". You can't get mad at her about snapping at you (i can see where she would have assumed you were asking for yourself) when you spent the entire night and even now pouting about it. I would just let it go and be an adult about it. Its just pizza. She was trying to oversee an entire b-day party and make sure all the kids were fed. You could have simply pulled the pepperoni off a piece to begin with and avoided the whole issue.

  • I agree with abbynzachsmommy. You're her sister so she probably feels like it's okay to be a little snappy with you - because, after all, you ARE her sister. Give her a break - she was dealing with a childs birthday party. You  said "It's for my daughter" so surely she KNEW you weren't eating it and it should have been over from that point.

  • I think you both could have handled it differently. Your sil was busy trying to feed the kids and was probably stressed. She should not have snapped at you. You should have started off with something like 'Do you need any help serving the kids? Susie likes plain cheese pizza. Do you have any?' That way she would have known it was for DD and that you were trying to help serve.
    I think you both need to let it go and get over it--- parties can be stressful, especially for the host mom who is trying to keep an eye on kids, feed them and keep the party on schedule.

  • Family always gets snappy...they think they can speak that way to you. @@ If it was a friend, I bet she would bend over backwards to please her and definitely would not sanp. I am speaking from experience. I am the one who gets snapped at but I never snap back.
    @@ again.
