Just tell her nicely that you have already made plans & that from now on she should call & arrange a visit so that you can make sure you are available. I wouldn't cancel my plans just because she called & announced she'd be coming over. She's not being very respectful of you, but if you cancel your plans every time she does this, you are in essence telling her that you don't deserve nor expect her respect. As Dr. Phil says, "You teach people how to treat you" by what you let them get away with.

You should go by yourself to see you Grandpa. Maybe she wanted time with her dad when you weren't there. In any event, you had a life before you met this guy and he is willing to let his daughter manipulate him. So you may be having a life AFTER this guy. I don't let people manipulate me like that. You want to invite me to something last minute, don't be surprised when I have other plans. And if you already knew I had other plans, well screw you!

He should have dragged her to the hospital with the both of you, even if he and his daughter just waited in the car of the cafeteria. and yes it is that easy. You just aren't the one making the decision, he is.

Why can't your step daughter stay at your home while you do your thing?? Maybe she wants to spend time with her father and I see no problem with that. Why do Step parents make the parent feel like they have to choose. This will always be your husbands daughter. What does your husband want to do?? Can you invite your SD to come with??
