Ok, here I am to VENT! Usually we get on here to complain about the FI’s oddball rude family, but oh no…the rude family award goes to my father’s side of the family! I actually have no issues with FI’s family whatsoever, so this is really tragic.
So what happened? I mean, what didn’t happen?
Today was had a sort of 2nd Thanksgiving. My father’s sister was ill on Thanksgiving day after having another round of chemo, and one of my little cousins has his birthday in a few days. So, Thanksgiving was today for that family. No big deal. I mean, who doesn’t love food? 😉
IT WAS BEYOND AWFUL. I came home and cried about it afterwards, I was so upset. No one acknowledged us when we walked in the door, except for a remark from my 30-something year old cousin who’s a single bachelor with no intention of ever settling down; “Heard ya’ll were engaged?” I replied “Yes,” just as he was turning around to leave. My grandmother kept shooting us dirty looks and looked as if she was going to cry when I made any attempt to converse with her. My uncle acted as if he had never met FI, which really confused both of them…obviously, he’s met FI! One of my other cousins just kind of split up with her live in boyfriend (she has FOUR kids and she’s not even thirty) so she was pretty witchy, needless to say. No one talked to me hardly at all, and absolutely IGNORED FI. I was so angry, and I couldn’t hide it for much longer.
FI had to change clothes because we had to go to the fire station to give little kids a tour. Well, he’s a lieutenant, it says right there on his dress uniform, he was dressed for RESPECT and did he get any respect whatsoever? NO. No congratulations or anything. I can’t believe my own family could be so rude, and I don’t ever want to take FI over there again! They might be having their own issues, but it’s not fair for them to act the way they did. Sorry to say it, but a lot of the kids in that family have been screwups for lack of a better word; it seems ridiculous that they should not wish one of the “normal” ones over there well wishes, and completely ignore her new fiance, the man she is madly in love with.
Worse is, after I left, my mother said everyone started talking about us. They wanted to know why the heck we got engaged so young if we weren’t getting married for a few years. They wanted to know how we planned to get married if we weren’t making a lot of money right now, and they asked why FI proposed after barely knowing each other for a year. And then my cousin, the one who’s running a circus of four children with no husband hinted at the fact that we got engaged because I might be pregnant. (I AM NOT PREGNANT!!!!) RUDE? Yes, I think so. Rude of them to hound my mother with questions instead of just asking me or FI.
I’m sorry, but I am just fuming!!!
