- Wedding: April 2018
For those of you reading along, the money situation with my sister and her fiance over her engagement ring has come to a head….after being firm, yet friendly, perisistent without nagging…I finally got just a little torked since I was in fact being ignored…
So I did the unthinkable….I called the parental units, who are currently on vacation, I will admit to being VERY nervous about the entire phone call and having to fortify my resolve with a bag of M&M’s, after all, snitching is NOT something I advocate.
Either way, when I started talking to them about it, I instantly felt better. They were really surprised to hear how long things had been taking, the total lack of communcation and reponse on their part and told me I should have come to them sooner…so that was nice.
They’re calling my sister and her fiance today….so I’m girding my loins and keeping an eye on the horizon…I’m sure the explosion should be visible from here.
@Nona99: Perfect picture of how I almost responded to a co-worker today. Don’t write things on whiteboards and circle them to try and reinforce a point to me. I can hear you just fine and I don’t need the visual to discern that you’re still an idiot.
Hope the rest of your day is better 🙂
EDIT: Just saw your second post. I really hope that whole mess gets cleared up. I know the feeling of sitting around and waiting for the impending explosion and it’s not fun. Have some wine and turn off your ringer for the rest of the night lol.
I’ve been following along with your story about your sis and her Fiance. Sucky situation. My fiance has a brother and i cannot actually fathom if he had borrowed money to buy me a ring and if I knew about the loan and continued to plan a wedding and not pay him back. Or at the least, chat about and PUT INTO MOTION a repayment plan per month or whatever. I’m so sorry, here you are trying to do something nice and this happens. :S
I’m glad for you that you brought your parents in to wrangle them a bit. Keep us posted!
How is Cairo doing now?
@babybee92: Thanks! I’m sure it will work out fine, I’m not the one being a jerk….and Cairo is back to his extra spoiled, super happy self, sleeping in late and frowsting in bed all day, breakfast at 8, a light snack at 3 and dinner at 6….he’s got it better than I do!
Def. keep us posted!
I just went through all of your threads on this and you have been wonderfully patient. I am angry for you at how they have taken advantage of you and I think you are playing your cards wonderfully. I’m guessing maybe she hasn’t really been held accountable for much in her life?
Definitely interested in seeing your update.
I hope it works out well for you. In the meantime, spend a little extra time with your trusty pooch and try not to worry.
can you link the old post about this? i have no idea whats going on, but would love to try to give some insight if possible. also, sorry this is bolded… Im on my phone and cant un click the bold button.
I cant believe this. I just read up on your previous threads. Your sis is a piece of work. Six months to pay back that small amount. I could never walk around with ring with pride knowing that not only he couldn’t afford it on his own but he took the money from my family and hasn’t made good on his word. Yep those are great qualites to have in a mate.
