My son is in the 8th grade. They go to a private school that makes a big to do about 8th grade graduation. We have known the date of graduation since the first day of school. I just found out today that my dad won't be there...he has a work thing, that is obviously more important than his oldest grandchild's graduation. Now before y'all say that it's work, blah blah blah...my dad is the "big boss" of his company, he makes his own schedule, and he has known about this since August. I am beyond pissed. What grandparent misses something like that?!? They live 15 minutes from us, so it's not like it's a big trip or anything. My 81 and 82 year old grandparents that live 2 hours away (my dads parents) will be there. My mom that lives 2 hours away will be there. But for some reason my dad doesn't think it's important enough to be there. Zach is trying to play it cool (like a typical 14 year old ), but I can see that he is devastated. My stepmom is the one that told me he won't be there...should I tell him how upset I (and Zach) am, or should I just let it go? And I just got off the phone with my grandparents, and they are PISSED that their son could do such a thing.
