- 7 years ago
I am so fired uo right now, just when I think I get to a point that Darling Husband family doesn’t piss me off they go and do something.
So a little back story. My Darling Husband Aunt likes to paint in her spare time, about 3 years ago she got into doing paintings on chainsaws ( strange I know) . She had asked my Darling Husband if he could send her some chainsaws so she can paint on being that he works in Construction and had access to many. He sent her about 5 or so.
This past Nov, she sends my Darling Husband and email asking for his address because she has finally finished painting some of the chainsaw and she wanted to send him 2 of them. We get them and I send her a Thank you.
Now this Aunt is the SAME Aunt who, her husband, her 3 kids, and her kids 2 friends showed up unannouced to our Rehearsal Dinner. They were invited to the wedding but just like the rest of the family because of the issues my Mother-In-Law created they all cut us off, didn’t send back invites, and when we had to chase them to find out if they were coming everyone declined. None of MIL’s family sent us a card or gift or even acknoweldge that we got married.
So the day before our wedding at our planned out Rehearsal Dinner these 7 people just SHOW up, mind you they drove 3 hours just to show up and “crash” our Rehearsal Dinner, but weren’t coming to the wedding. We made the best of the situation even though my Darling Husband and I had to pay for 7 extra people at $50 a plate, money which we didn’t have after we had just paid out everything , so we were really upset but again we let it go.
Flash back to NOW, and this crazy [email protected]@ Aunt EMAILS me, 6 months later, she writes a BOOK, if I printed the email out it would be at least 2 pages. She went on and on about her family and her kids, she sent me each of her kids latest report cards and what they got in each class. The only time I met this women was when she showed up at the Rehearsal Dinner, and she didn’t even speak to me. I went up to her and said Hi and walked away. SO for her to be going on and on and on about her to life to me I just find weird, she never once asked about Darling Husband ( her newphew) or us, or me, or anything that relates to us, all about HER. At the END of this long email she writes ” By the way the shipping for sending those chainsaws was $16, so I would appericate it if you would reimburse me for the cost of that shipping, and keep in mind anything else I send please reimburse me for. UMMMMMMMM WTF! Are you seriously lady!
1. we never asked her to send us ANYTHING
2. We paid almost $400 for her ENTIRE family and kids friendsd to show up unannouced to her Rehearsal Dinner and you are telling ME I need to reimburse you!
I called my Darling Husband right away, he is digusted as always. He really can’t stand his family and how they are, and thinks they are just flat out the rudest people in the world. He told me to write back, something about calling it even since we paid XXX for them at our Rehearsal Dinner. LOL
UGH, I honestly don’t want to write back, and I’m do not want to write back and be all warm and fuzzy. So do I just not write back and just send a stupid check for $20 to her or write back and be a bit cold?
