Soooo, my brother calls me to see if there is anyway I can ake his wife, her sister, and her mother to the airport today (this was last week). I am currently on a leave of absence from work, so I am flexible and non-committed 🙂 I say ‘Of course I can, no problem’ (I’m also picking them up on Tuesday when they come back)
ANYWAY, so my SIL sends me her travel itinerary – never calls me to talk to me about it. I don’t worry too much about it. She is busy. I see that her plane leaves at 8am. I email her back and ask her what time she will be here on Thursday. I email her again the next day, because she still hasn’t responded. She tells me they will be here at 615, no later. OK fine, I think, I’ll get up at 6, drive them to the airport (10 minutes away) and then crawl back into bed.
She texts me about a WR thing the other day, I call her instead of texting, and we chat about that, and about airport and other stuff. No issues. we confirm 615 again. Last night she texts me “We’ll be there at 615 tomorrow, thank you again for doing this etc etc” So, like a good litte SIL I set my alarm for 6am, 5.5 hours after I go to sleep. No sweat, i think, its just getting up for 40 minutes and going back to bed. Then I will get up at 830 for kickboxing and spend the rest of the day with Fiance since it is his Bday.
It is now 6am. I get my ass out of bed, manage to put on some cothes, even a real bra! I am ready to go. I text SIL to say ‘I’m up!’ just in case she was worried 🙂 She texts me back, “awesome! See you soon, we just left”
wah. wwaaahhhh. wwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh. She lives 40 minutes away. WTF SIL?!?! So i text, ‘seriously?’, cuz sometimes she tries to mess with me. She calls, and is like yeah, we just left the house, sorry….. Anyway, thats my vent/rant
If someone is doing you a favor, especially one that inconveniences you and disrupts their sleep, BE ON FUCKING TIME GOD DAMMIT!
