@Deejayelle:  Of course tell the whole story to your BIL. I can’t understand why you wouldn’t.

p.s. Who would your overseas sister rather see – her sister (you) or her brother-in-law? Your local sister is being pretty selfish, as far as I can see.

@Deejayelle:  So you’re prepared to take the blame so your BIL won’t get stressed? You’re such a sweetie! But it’s not what I’d do. You can state the facts without blaming anyone. You could write something like this:

Dear BIL. Sorry but I can’t get time off to go on November 12. Sis and I originally planned November 5, and I got the leave approved, but that didn’t work for sis and her husband.”
