I am just so sick of… everybody! Ughh!
I guess I should explain, huh?
Tonight I went over to my aunt and uncle’s house for something. On the way out, my aunt started talking about accomodations for the wedding. She said my uncle had suggested that they share a rental with several of my other relatives, to save money. Then, with the bitchiest face she could possibly make, my aunt said, “I told (uncle) that I just wouldn’t go then!” I kind of chuckled and said, “Oh, you have to come to my wedding!” She did that bitchy face again and just shook her head and said, “Umm, no I don’t.”
I felt really insulted by that comment and her expression whilst making it. Bascially, this whole time I have been engaged, my aunt has been fishing for some sort of special place in this wedding. I frankly do not understand why she feels entitled to anything other than guest (it may have to do with the fact that my uncle is walking me down the aisle). She was not a mother figure to me, or anything like that. Not even close. She has made comments suggesting that I should have asked her to be a bridesmaid, or that she should be getting the same recognition as my mother or Future Mother-In-Law. I have gently let her know that won’t be the case, and since then, she has just had a really shitty attitude towards the wedding.
My aunt is really, really passive-aggressive. Like the Queen of passive-aggression. So, she won’t out and say, “My feelings are hurt because I don’t feel involved.” She just makes snide comments and has a crappy attitude. Like, tonight, when she insinuated she didn’t need to come to my wedding. I am sure if I’d probed a little deeper, she would have said she didn’t need to come because she had no reason to come. Being there for me on my wedding day is simply not enough.
At this point, I am ready to just tell everyone: All I need is my Fiance, a minister, and two witnesses. Other than that, I couldn’t care less if you showed up!
Why do people have to show their asses so much when it comes to weddings? Especially family. I don’t get it.
