- Wedding: November 2011
My younger sister, bless her heart, can be very flightly and somwhat selfish sometimes. Part of that is not respecting other people’s time and being really difficult to get ahold of. She is really bad with returning calls and e-mails. I supposed this vent is somewhat wedding-related because my sister is in my wedding and rarely replies to my (infrequent) e-mail updates to the bridal party either, but this particular instance was Not Wedding Related. I was trying to find out about a package I had sent her, and a favor she had said she would do for me that I never heard about again. I finally got in touch with her and asked her to follow up on these things and instead of saying “oh, I’m sorry I didn’t let you know but yes I got that package [or insert other outcome here]” her indignant reply was: “do you know how busy I am??”
Uh, yes I do! And that’s because, guess who else is busy? Everyone! Everyone is busy, that’s what happens when you’re an adult! You’re not special just because you’re also busy!”
Gah! Siblings, amiright? 😉 For the record, she did get the package, but had not completed the favor haha.
