The other day I saw my step sis wrote me on my email board (kinda like a mini FB wall) & not just a normal email message & I never actually use the board or even know how to get to it (idk how I even found ger message lol). She wrote it way back in mid Dec saying:
“Wish you acted like you had a sister, have you been to mass lately? merry xmas.”
That hurt, I felt sad & guilty but offended all at the same time. I’m not sure if I should even reply to it. I mean, that was way back in Dec & now its mid April. Plus, it was kinda rude. I’ve maybe seen her 10 times my entire life & we never were close or talked. Should I reply back? Idk what I’d even say!

Meh. If you’re not close to her, it’s not a big deal. But I’m sure a “How are you?” wouldn’t hurt. But I wouldn’t beat myself up about this.
You’re not close. Not sure what she was expecting?

I would acknowledge her e-mail and apologize for the delay.

Idk why it got to me. I tried to reconnect with my bio family years ago & we exchanged email addresses but no one ever replied to my emails & now that I have a new family (DH fam) I kinda wrote them off.

I would just ignore like it like you never got. Not worth the time or energy.

It got to you because she insulted you. But ignore it… She obviously doesn’t act like much of a sister herself.
My sister says things like this to me, but (two of) my siblings including her haven’t ever really been that nice to me… Like you, I’m focusing on my new family with my husband.
I’m sorry if it helps. 🙁

Delete it. Ignore it. Move on. Passive agressive people like that are just looking for something to jump all over. Don’t let her get to you.

Tell her the phone works both ways, and that surely there must be better ways to get your attention than passive aggressive emails.

It was a little rude but maybe she is reaching out to you. Why not just send an email asking how she is but not mentioning anything on the board?

That’s odd and rude and not very sisterly.
