It’s going to be a LONG week

Sister and brother-in-law were due to get in at 9 and take the 9:37 train where I was set to pick them up at the train station to get their rental car and maybe go for a nice lunch. By 10:30 I hadn’t heard from them so I texted Sis. She replied 20 minutes later that they took Uber to go get their rental car and were stopping for breakfast at McDonald’s. I replied to let me know what is the plan. Well it’s been another hour and I have no clue.

This is par for the course with them because hell, they were assholes to the parents on Christmas. They were supposed to go up for brunch where Dad was making beignets and other yummy stuff. Dad even offered to go to them if they preferred since they were mad at the in-laws for cancelling Christmas Eve (Sis took it out on my parents, acting as if it were such a hardship and that she has to go to everyone else) Sis said no, they would go up to visit my parents. She did, but she and the BIL showed up hours late, was there less than half an hour, didn’t eat anything Dad made and didn’t even take off their coats.

Well fuck them. If I don’t hear from them in the next 10 minutes, I’m making myself lunch and figuring out what I might want to do with the rest of MY day. I’m not spending their entire visit to the 3rd sitting around in the hopes that they’ll deign to grace me with their presence

And here I got my car the fancy car wash and vacuum and made room in the trunk for nothing. Well, at least I have a nice clean car.

Yeah, fuck them. You have my sympathy. Just think about Veganuary and maybe vegan cupcakes in Manhattan?

Ooo, we will have to find a yummy bakery! Or if there’s a cold snap, maybe I’ll try to bake us something

I don't know the city as well as you but I'm willing to spring for a cab if necessary.

Shit. I'm so sorry to your folks--that is awful. Very very rude indeed.

And YES look at the bright side: your car is sparkly-beautiful for YOU now. You deserve it more than she/they did, anyway. Let them eat their McD's breakfast and pout *rolls eyes*

My car is well...slightly more respectable looking. Since my parking spot is under trees, even the fancy car wash couldn’t get the ground in dirty crud off the roof of the car.

I still haven’t heard shit from them and I will not text again. Ball is in her court. If that means I don’t see them, so be it

PFF. Sounds like you won't be seeing them and maybe that ain't such a bad thing?

...Give us FREEDOM!

Good on you for NOT letting them spoil your weekend by sitting around waiting on them!
