- Wedding: September 2013
Seriously. My wedding is in less than two weeks. Over the weekend, I got a text message from my dad, frantically asking his relatives to send him their flight info “ASAP”. It was obvious to me I was a part of a group text (I.e., I had no reason seeing it. I don’t have their specific flight info) So I calmly texted my father and asked him what was going on. He texted back that he suddenly thought his family must think the wedding was Sunday instead of Monday. He was afraid their flights back to their state must be my wedding day. :-/ I asked him what new information made him think so, and he said nothing did, he was just worried. I told them that they were responsible, smart people, and they would not have booked their flights unless they were absolutely sure of the date (and, you know, they had invitations…)
Ok dad. Have a meltdown over nothing then. Don’t ask me to join you. I contacted the family, got the info to calm my dad down, and sent it to him. He immediately started fussing about something else, so I had to calm him down about that, too.
This morning, I got a text message from my mother (who has recently started secretly taking over parts of my wedding and changing them without talking to me or asking me first). It said that a friend of hers (who at her request had an invite to the wedding) would now be bringing her two daughters because another friend of my mom (who rsvp’d for 3, when she had an invitation for 2, and was going to be my friendor for hair) told us she could not come last week.
This woman has a demon child. I talked with my mom months ago and let her know that the invite was for her friend only, and that if she couldn’t leave her kids with someone, I’d understand if she could not make it.
What’s more, she told me that this friend would be staying in the hotel room I had reserved and paid for for the hairstylist friendor who can’t make it. Mom told me she’d be running errands with this friend all day, that I shouldn’t be mad, and that we can talk later.
Did I mention that the friend she is giving extra invites to never even sent in her rsvp at all….?
No worries. It isn’t as if I gave that hotel room away yesterday (I did). It’s not as if I didn’t want her kids at my wedding (I don’t). It’s not as if I’m not ok with you dictating to me how my wedding will be (I so am not). And it isn’t as if you sending me a message at 6am and telling me we can’t talk about it until this evening is a problem (big problem).
Seriously. Someone call my parents and tell them to calm the fuck down, please? I need some duct tape. They’ve lost it.
