I say this on a daily basis….People amaze me!  Good for you and standing your ground!  Aunt P. does not need to bring a friend, she will know enough people at the wedding!

I love how you are handling this situation.  I have several relatives that I will place vegas money on that there will be something similar tried.  I have one drama king uncle that pulls the passive aggressive trick all the time, and whatever, don’t care, not my problem.

I hope not!!!!

I’m getting my invitations out in the next little bit, but no one better pull that stunt.  I agree with how you’ve handled it and I like that you’re not letting yourselft get walked on or bullied.  Keep it up.

i have an uncle like this. i guess there’s an aunt in the equation too (his wife), but i’ve only ever met her 3 times and certainly don’t think of her as my aunt. the maturity levels of these two are scary low. i can already see him calling my grandmother and telling her they will only come if she pays for their plane tickets. i just hope she has the good sense to tell him no.

Good for you for keeping things in perspective and sticking to your guns. Some people just act a fool thinking that other people will cave. If it doesn’t matter to you, just let her do what she wants and maybe she’ll learn a lesson in politeness.

I think it is hilarious that your aunt is acting like a bratty child trying to go around you and make a power move decision and you are just sitting there laughing like “I don’t care and you can’t do anything without my approval”. She’s’ all like “If you don’t do things MY way I WONT COME!!!” And you’re like “Oh, to bad. Oh well.” LOL!!

Ok, correct me if I’m mistaken, but Aunt P can’t afford to get there herself (which is why Aunt S is offering to pay half), yet she wants to invite someone else? Seems to me like she is taking this as a vacation for her and her friend. It’s a good thing you’re really not concerned, b/c I know myself, and I would lose sleep over someone playing games with me like she is. I commend you for keeping cool!

@MissHelen: haha you are just A+ in your responses. I love it. It’ll be funny to see her scramble and eventually either concede or drift off into poutyland.

Hehe I agree with everyone – she’s trying to completely manipulate the situation like a toddler and you’re totally not get sucked into it, which is amazing. I bet you a gazillion bucks she’s going to come to town with her friend, then stomp around and throw a fit and say she’s not coming to the wedding, and when it has NO impact on you whatsoever, she’ll make some lame excuse at the last minute about why she’s had a change of heart and wants to be there. Mark my words! 🙂
