I am pretty upset right now. I have a certain female family member who has never been all that nice to me for whatever reason. She always acts very snooty towards me, but is very kind to everyone else.
Her wedding was last year, and despite feeling unwelcome by her, I graciously accepted, bought her and her husband a nice shower gift as well as money as a wedding gift, and was kind to her at her wedding.
I just got her RSVP back for ours, and of course, she declined. I didn’t think anything of it, but it was when people in my family started talking that I got upset. One person said she told them she can’t make it because she has a college function that night. Another person said she told them she can’t make it because she is babysitting. Yet another person said she told them she can’t make it because she is planning a big party that night for her friend. Whatever the reason is, I find it pretty lame that she feels the need to give multiple BS excuses for not attending. It’s pretty clear that she just doesn’t want to go….don’t lie about it. Or better yet, don’t say anything at all.
On top of that, I found out that she is “unable” to make it to my bridal shower.
I also never got a thank you card from her for the shower gift or wedding gift that I bought her a year ago.
I swear, sometimes I hate family. Why can’t you pick family like you can pick your friends?!?

@Legallyblondiebride: The fact she never sent a wedding thank you and the fact you bought her something despite her attitude shows you are the bigger person. People like that don’t need time wasted on them wondering why they hate us by really neead our pity and snickering hehehe. Obviously there is something about you she can’t stand. Oh well. Life goes on. She is just as mortal as you are. You will have a great wedding and well be a more gracious bride than she ever was

Oh, wow! She sounds awful. Do you have any idea what she is holding against you? Is she possibly jealous of you in some way? So sorry to hear you’re having to deal with this, I know you’re stressed out enough as it is. But, you know, let the haters be haters and don’t let it spoil anything for you. Think of it this way – she’s not coming to your wedding – yay!! That’s a good thing – you don’t need her bad vibes around you on YOUR day. You have always done the right thing by treating her nicely, and if she doesn’t treat you right in return, then it is truly her loss.
Don’t let it get you down, hon!!

@Sunfire: Awww thanks!! Yeah, I have absolutely no idea why she dislikes me so much. I have always wanted to ask her but I know she will just be fake about it and act like she doesn’t hate me. I figure at this point it just doesn’t matter.
