- Wedding: July 2011
First of all, the name I gave my family in the topic title is way too gentle for them.
So my wedding was on the 7th of July. And I invited some of the family members from a different country to my wedding. In particular my grandma and aunt were coming. I was very happy, because I haven’t seen them in 5 years. My only family in the US was my mom, so I felt really excited that her sister and mom (my grandma) are coming. Soon before the wedding they tell us that their visa interview is scheduled for the 7th and they can come only on the 15th and they really want to come even tho they won’t make it to the wedding. Anyways, at that point we were still happy that we finally get to meet. They spent some good money on tickets and my mom helped them with that a little too. When they came they stayed at my moms, my mom cooked, and took them places.
So now the interesting part. Everything seemed to be cool, we went shopping together. I got some gifts for my aunt’s daughter, who stayed in a diff. country. But when i was buying the gifts I noticed my grandma was following me like an old creepy b*tch and whispering things like “That girl is rich and has everything, and she is greedy and they take money from me all the time. Don’t buy them anything, they are bad” I was like “Shut up granma, it’s not the matter of money and that they have everything they need, it is just a little sister present.” But that was just the beginning.
I am not sure what happened, but it seemed someone got very jealous and greedy, and finally the next day my mom and them had a HUGE HUGE HUGE fight. They remembered each other everything, who and when bought stuff for whom in life, who kicked whom out. it was like: “I bought you that shirt when you were 20” , “but you kicked me out when I came to you for help”, “No way, I gave you a canned soup once 20 years ago!!”. They called each other fat and ugly, with a lot of cussing. They fought over grandparent’s house – and grandp’s are still alive and well, still they fought for whom it should belong after they die. They started to return gifts and money. It was so low, ugly, horrible…
So they were supposed to leave today very late, like 10ish pm. But at 8am my mom called asking me to take them to the airport. I said that we are sleeping, and my hubby had a rough night and now is very tired and sleeping. And all of this mixed with yelling of my grandma and aunt on the background and mom yelling in reply. So finally in an hour, mom skypes me that they left and are sitting on the street with their suitcases and that I need to do something. But then she decided to take them to the airport herself, 14 hours before the plane.
So let me repeat, my wedding was less than 2 weeks ago, my hubbys bday was 2 days ago, my bday is going to be in 3 days. Thanks my wonderful family for amazing gifts…I feel really devastated over it. And very embarrassed of them.
