Sorry if this is long and boring, I just want to vent.
In the back of my mind I KNEW that a ring wasn’t coming this Christmas. But still, I kept a tiny little bit of hope that everything he had said was to throw me off.
Well, it didn’t happen and I still had a great Christmas. That was until his sister got drunk at dinner and announced to the family that we are engaged. I immediately felt my face go about 10 shades of red. And my first reaction was to look at his dad who looked confused/shocked/sad/and everything at once. Then I think I managed to hold up my hand and say something along the lines of “ummm. nope umm see we aren’t engaged”. Then the first words anyone said were “Look at how red you are!! oh my god!!” And then his mother chimed in “well of course she is red!! That is probably what she was hoping for!!”. Even the boy commented on how red I was which made me want to scream at him. But of course I just giggled and died a little on the inside.
AND THEN a while later some of us were still around the table nibbling and drinking (I had switched to water at this point) and his sister announced that I was pregnant!! WTF?! Basically, the exact same thing above happened all over again. Except this time the boy wasn’t even in the room.
I told her that she is a rumor mill and we joked a little about it but I was seriously so embarassed. Yes, I do want to be engaged. It’s been 2 years and we live together. And yes, she was drunk. But my god! RUDE!

Oh wow, how annoying!! Sorry that happened 🙁 What a loudmouth sister. You should announce something about her, like the fact that she has Hepetitis C.

Wow, how rude. At the second one, I would have lost my mind. I would have waited a beat and then said “And I have an announcement too. Sis is entering rehab for her alcohol problems. We’re so grateful and supportive.”
But then again, I am kind of a jerk.

I would have loved to say something rude back! But it’s not my family and I just wanted the convo. to stop. The annoying thing was that she was drinking and she was probably a little drunk…but she wasn’t wasted or anything like that! Ugh. Annoying.

Wow that sucks. When you do get engaged and are planning be sure to tell the bartender not to let the sister drink 🙂

I’m so sorry! But look at the bright side, she said it while you were there. You could fend off any questions! Just think if she had said it while you weren’t there.

Geesh, someone doesn’t know how to hold their booze mouth closed. This must have been really frustrating, especially if your guy wasn’t saying anything to shut her up. It’s a fine line to walk sometimes though, because you know that this person will be your sister in law for the rest of your life. Hopefully you get along with her when she is sober..

Wow, that’s messed up. I wuld have loved to come back with a rude retort like some of the ladies suggested (and I cracked up at those, haha), but in the end my response would have been the same as yours. Is she always that way when she drinks? I’m sorry! Heh.

You shouldn’t be embarassed for her ridiculousness. If you guys live together, I think it’s expected an e-ring is somewhat on the way, anyways! That sis is crazy and has zero manners.

Dang gril..I’m sorry that happened! I would have been so p!ssed!!! It’s one thing to call you out once, but twice!? What was her deal anyway, does she have anything against you?

lol @ MissACS – that would have been hilarious to say that! 🙂
His sister sounds like a big-time trouble-maker. She must just be so bored with her own life, that she feels the need to stir up everyone else’s.
