I would leave your laptop at home. I don’t say that so you can just be a pain, but there seriously is no reason I can imagine why one would need to Skype with someone while doing a tasting. She can’t send the food through the camera. No one can smell the food by sticking their nose to the screen. It’s beyond weird that she would make that request for a tasting.

If she wants to show them the food, a cell phone camera would work much better than Skype.

Can you actually make it too the tasting? you and Fiance are both working 2 jobs and you have a wedding to plan, and you obviously need quality time together too as every couple does, your sister shouldn’t really expect you to plan her wedding too or ar you just there for the laptop? Or are you MOH?

I have never attended a tasting that was not mine.  Well I have never had a tasting but I’ve assisted with them–you bring yourself, your fiance and whoever is paying for the damn thing and *maybe* your planner/coordinator.  This is not a bridesmaids event, this is not a family event.  If you invite every damn person you know to the tasting, everyone is going to have an opinion and it will be a disaster.  Why would you skype a tasting?  Your sister is being a bit much.  Just be too tired from working all week to be able to attend the tasting.

Sounds like you have a sister like mine. Who thinks the world revolves around her. I would honestly try to ignore her. Tell her you cannot make it to the tasting because she changed the date and leave it at that. I feel your pain! My sister is the same way. She has 4 kids (2 by one guy she was with for 9 years and just up and left one day and 2 by another guy who she did the same thing to 3 weeks ago)and thinks that because she has 4 kids and is now again a single mom(by choice) that I/our partents/my other siblings should be able to watch her kids whenever she needs us to. I have had about enough of my sister and I am sure after the wedding(my dad has asked I be nice untill after it) all hell will break loose in our family(needless to say I am not the only one sick of her).

you sound extremely bitter towards your sister.

being on disabilty is not a laughing matter and to take bet on when your sister will be “sick” as you put it, is in my opinion pretty disgusting.

you say you think she is trying to make your and hers wedding into a competition, and then your final comment is “on the plus though, my Fiance and I are golden children in my parents’ eyes :D) – that just comes across that you are trying to make it a competition to become your parents “favourtie” child.

it sounds like you sister is asking for your support and for some reason you do not want to offer it to her?

I would go and I would bring the laptop. I know things are stressful, but with your weddings so close together, you should use this as a bonding experience. Overlook the irritations and embraces the comraderie.

I just wouldn’t go. Tell her sorry, I have some other commitment… Why should you rearrange your life for someone who will not do he same for you?
