@Nona99:  You would think she would ask you, and much closer to the time when it actually happened, whether or not you had noticed them (and it seems pretty obvious you didn’t…) rather than assuming you had and chose to ignore them. She could have sent you a text before you reached your car to say, hey, we are here! This seems incredibly unreasonable and very delayed. Perhaps something else set her off. I can’t imagine anyone getting mad over that.

yeah it seems a little late to get mad about that now. I would simply explain that it must have been a misunderstanding and if she keeps on then there must be another reason why she is mad at you. It seems silly to bring it up in the first place.

It’s quite simple, step-sister in law’s nutso.  Normal, mentally stable people bring up the issue when it happens and at least give you some benefit of the doubt.  It sounds like this isn’t totally out of character, for her, either.  You do right but keeping away from her!

My first thought was “Huh, must have been a slow drama day for her”.  You know she’s just poking you to see if you’ll bite.  Just think of all the frustration the poor thing must feel when she tries to set you off.  She had to go back four months to find ANYTHING!

@Nona99:  Dude. Your family is nuts! I’m sorry they’re ruining your day. I would tell her I have no idea what day she’s talking about and would never ignore my neice. Then email neice directly and say you’re sorry if you hurt her feelings. It’s entirely possibly that she made an innocent comment about seeing you but you didn’t hear her and her crazy ass mom blew it up.

@Nona99:  It’s hard with family because you have that sense of obligation. But people are either adding value to your life, or they’re not. The interactions are either healthy, or they’re not. We do our best to remove all controlable sources of stress from our lives, even if it happens to be a family member or so-called friend.

I’m sorry you have to deal with the craziness. Obviously if you’d seen the cookies, you would have bought them. Who turns down Girl Guide cookies?!

@Nona99:  It could be worse, it can ALWAYS BE WORSE. Whenever things go badly for me, I imagine waking up with a Bruce Dickinson fringe. I mean I love Iron Maiden, but no.

 

Also, it seems like this person is just jonesing for a spat – I’d explain that you did not see your niece and leave it at that. Don’t engage crazy people, it never ends well. Good luck Nona 🙂

@MexiPino:  LOL I love this place because I love making people laugh!

@Nona99:  I’ve been having all kinds of cravings today, but I would punch a person in the face for some samoas. I mean punch. No holding back!!

@Chrysoberyl:  Damn it. Now I have to walk to the indian place on the corner for samosas. (Yes, I realize you said samoas, but it made me think of samosas and now I’m hungry.)

Gotta love it when people are offended by something you did without realizing it.

 

I had a similar experience when I was driving.  A car zipped up next to me and honked like crazy.  The glare was terrible, so I just frowned, trying to figure out who was honking at me like a crazy person.  They turned off before I could see who it was.

Cue an angry facebook message later from FI’s uncle’s wife (who I had met ONCE before), wondering why I gave her the ‘stink eye’ at 50mph.
