See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
So I'm angry with my sister. There have been many occasions where her and her SO have made me angry, but this really is the straw that broke the camel's back!
Our mom got a promotion at work, found out on the 24th. I said to dad, brother and sis (plus her SO) that we would have to wait until she is on holidays in January (she has 3 weeks booked) and then once we know she has the house done up nicely, we should get a cake to say 'Congratulations Mom!' and surprise her with it.
By the evening of the (december) 28th, sis calls from mom and dad's and "invites" me over to share in cake with them. Nevermind the fact that she was choking on her words as they were coming out, it wasn't genuine at all. So at 530 I was expected to pack my (sick with a cold) self into the vehicle that I would have to work way too hard to get out of the shop and somehow magically get my sleeping baby into the carseat and over to their house in time to share in cake...
C'mon, it's not that difficult to send a text message.
Even if they decided for themselves on short notice that they were going to do this, they have an hour long drive to mom and dad's house, where she would have been a passenger! If they planned to have me there, they would have let me know.
So mom calls me a few minutes later and asks why I'm not coming. I told her I was sick, the vehicle was in the shop and ds was sleeping. Also said that this was my idea and that I told them I wanted to wait until she was on holidays in January and that I am absolutey blindsided by this!
Of course I am not happy. She took my thoughtful idea and tried to pass it off as their own and tried to exclude me entirely!
I don't believe that these two have one full brain between them that they could use to create a thoughtful idea of their own, so they stole mine!
I am ready to tear a huge strip off of her, but don't want to ruin the feeling of the gesture for my mom. I'm sure she would feel bad if this put a rift between us, but it's about time something is said to these idiots.
If you got this far, thanks for reading... I so need to vent.
