Am I asking too much from sis or is she being selfish?

My mom's birthday is tomorrow. She's always big on making sure we have a good birthday. She usually makes us dinner and does cake and sometimes does something fun with us. So I ask sis if she would go out to mom's tonight because mom works all day tomorrow so we could do dinner and cake with her. I offered to buy the pizza and cake and she just had to show up. She says she will not be out tonight because she doesn't want to spend the gas to make the 15 mile trip to mom' s house. Mind you she was able to go shopping 30 miles away yesterday. I know it's not really my say what she does with her gas and money but I just thought that mom deserved it.

Not too much to ask. Does she do this stuff often though? If its not about her she's not interested? Or maybe she's upset at one of you over something completely different? I hope she 'mans' up and thinks about your mom for a second.

Well we don't know what she is shopping for, maybe she is low on money, give her a break!

That's like my sister. She expects me to pick up all the tabs. But she shows up last minute to everything. Somehow she's broke yet can afford new clothes and goodies for herself. Go figure.

 i agree- what did she go shopping for? when's the next time she gets paid? even though i have a full tank of gas, i refuse to go ANYWHERE this weekend b/c that full tank has to last me til next friday- and that includes a hour drive, mon-fri.

It's selfish but I would also offer her a ride or gas money to go.
