Last night I had a bit of a panic attack because when I tried to call my sister on her cell phone, I got a message that it was disconnected. My mother is out of the country this week, so I called my sister a bunch of times, emailed her, posted on her facebook, just freaking out.
I freaked because she was recently laid off, so I guess I was mentally going down the road that she didn’t have the money to pay for her phone.
Well the reality of it is better & worse than that. Since she’s laid off, she went to visit her boyfriend in another country for a month, and turned off the phone so she wouldn’t have to pay for it. I found out because I called my cousin, who my sister had called before she got on the plane.
Is it wrong of me to be upset that SHE DIDN’T TELL ME SHE WAS LEAVING THE COUNTRY? She mentioned last week that she might. ARGGH! I am still upset today even though it turns out everything is okay. I don’t know if I should tell her that I’m upset. I can’t tell her on the phone, and I don’t think email will convey it correctly.

If my sister did something like that, she would definitely get a “WTF why did you not tell me???” when I spoke to her next. I would be upset too, cuz I am a worrier. We live about a 20 minute drive from our families, and anytime I see an accident that might affect one of them, you bet your ass I am on the phone making sure everyone is ok. I can’t help it!

I’d be furious if my sisters did that but thats just the kind of relationship we have. I would tell her on the spot and call her an idiot.

Is she your younger sister or older sister?
I personally wouldnt be happy if my sister left the country and didnt tell me, but I wouldnt freak out either. Especially if she is over 21.

I would have been nice if she gave you a heads up, but I don’t see how its that big of deal.it sounds like she kind of picked up and left on a whim. Also, I’m not sure why you freaked out so much about it, was there something really important that you needed to tell her? I would just let this go, but if you do talk to her about it, focus on saying that you were worried about her not that you’re mad she didn’t tell you.

@MrsSl82be: & @garden_bride: Thanks, I asked her to please let me know next time she leaves the country!
@bells: Younger, over 21
@msfahrenheit: Not important, but I freaked out b/c her phone was disconnected.
