Oh boy, I really messed up this time.
For the most part I get along with Future Sister-In-Law, I will say that she has a serious temper and tends to fly off the handle very quickly. I’ve always managed to stay on her good side though so everything was fine…. until yesterday.
A few of us went Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping yesterday (Saturday). I had mentioned to Future Sister-In-Law that we were going but she works weekends and told me it wasn’t enough notice for to take off. I told her it was no big deal and maybe me, her and Future Mother-In-Law could go together when she had a day off. That was the last I heard from her.
Friday night she texts my Fiance and tells him she got someone to cover her shift, but she would be unavailable from 11 – 1. Well, we were going dress shopping right in that time slot so she would not be able to come. Since Future Sister-In-Law did not directly contact me I told Fiance to let her know that we were going at that time and I’d go with her another day. Welllllll, he didn’t. She called him yesterday asking what the deal was and he told her that we were already gone. She FLIPPED out and said how difficult it was for her to get that time off and what an inconvenience this whole thing was and why didn’t we tell her, bla bla bla.
Okay, so I do feel bad that I didn’t follow up with her. I am man enough to admit when I am wrong and yes I was wrong. I should have followed up. Especially cuz Fiance can be a bit bad relaying messages. But still… Why didn’t she call or text ME?? I don’t bite!!!! Instead she chose to communicate through my Fiance who can be an airhead sometimes. Whatever. I’m not blaming Fiance for this as he at least did give me the message. So I see how I am fault. But goodness, she is at fault too. She never even told me she was trying to switch her shifts, and she certainly didn’t tell me she managed to get the day off. Instead she texts my Fiance the night before we’re going. Fiance said I need to just accept that it’s the way she is, she just flips out over little things like this, but geezum the whole thing just seems crazy to me.
I do feel bad that I upset her, I never meant to do that and I certainly don’t want to get on her bad side, but I can’t help thinking that this just isn’t a big deal and it’s not worth getting worked up over.
Haha I don’t really have a temper though and I’m pretty easy-going so I can’t rationalize like 95% of her outbursts. I’ll probably end up just apologizing next time I see her… I just hope she doesn’t flip out on me, cuz I reallllly don’t do well with confrontation.
I can say I’m extremely grateful that Fiance is the exact opposite of Future Sister-In-Law tho haha.
