So, go on a trip without me while I watch your dog. Awesome.

🙁 I would be upset too! They totally should have invited you.

I’m really sorry.  I think that is pretty crappy and I would be very upset if it happened to me as well.  I don’t know the dynamics in your family, but I am very close with mine, and I totally totally think you are justified in feeling hurt.  Sometimes our families do messed up things, but it doesn’t mean they don’t love us, so I wouldn’t drive yourself crazy about it, but you’re allowed to feel hurt because something hurtful was done to you.  *hugs*

This sounds really strange.why didn’t they invite you? That would upset me, too. Maybe your aunt and uncle were in charge of invite? and yes, please don’t take it out on the poor dog.

I understand, that’s mean and inconsiderate! 

PS Please don’t punish the dog for your family’s selfishness.

Definitely don’t punish the dog by not taking him out this time… but I wouldn’t agree to watch their dog in the future. They can pay for a dogsitter next time.

@carrotstick:  I definitely agree. Next time let them pay to board the dog if they can’t bother to be considerate to you.

And let your mom pay for a maid to come in. I would be stopping all my helpful behavior if they can’t even ask you to ride along on a family weekend trip. Sorry OP, that just sucks

@futuremrsndl:  What is your family dynamic?  That wouldn’t have happened in my family.  We consult each other about EVERYTHING, but that might be cultural.  (We’re first generation Chinese.)

Nonetheless, it seems a little bit rude.  You have every reason to be upset.  It’s obvious that someone communicated with each other (your parents w/your sister w/ your aunt w/ your grandparents), so why you were excluded seems a bit odd.

I would be upset about this too OP. I cannot imagine this happening in my family. I would be so, so upset.  Is your family very close, or is this sort of thing a common occurrence? I hope it was just a misunderstanding, and that you aren’t feeling too left out!
