  • I'm not sure I would hate it, but if I did have plans I would just tell her so. Same if I just didn't feel like company I would tell her that as well. I don't think it would bother me. (Trust me one of the few things in life that currently wouldnt!!!. LOL)

  • Id tell her NOT to show cause I WONT be there. TELL HER she cant just announce she is coming and expect you to drop everything.

  • Just tell her that if you can have lunch with her some other time, i think it would bother me cause my little sister does that to me all the time.

  • Tell her she needs to ask before coming over and if she ignores you, don't let her in. It's bothering you so you need to be assertive. Dr. Phil says "You teach people how to treat you." By not standing up for yourself so far, you have taught her it is ok to drop in whenever she wants.

  • Yeah that bothers me too. It's so annoying when people are inconsiderate.

  • No one can take advantage of you without your permission. Tell her no if its not a good time. But suggest another time that is better!

  • No idea. I have one sibling (younger brother) in another state. I'd actually love it if he dropped by - I never see him.
