What should I do about my sister? I can't stand her attitude anymore!!!
My sister is a half sister, our mother got remarried to my dad. So, its always been a sort of strained relationship being that my sister lived with her dad. Well, our mom has always tried to do things for her and her children and have traveled down to their house (which is a pit) and cooked and cleaned and helped them move. We have went to the birthday parties, which she insists on having one every single year and inviting everyone every single year for each of them... which just becomes a little over done after a while.
So, my mom and I have gotten them gifts and one year she actually opened everyone elses gifts and left ours just sitting there because she had seen my mom got them some gently used clothes... she didn't even know what I got them! I was furious, but we said nothing.
It was brought up one day when she was complaining about our mother and next thing she calls up my mom and said some real nasty uncalled for things and told her to F off. So my mom has made no contact since then and I've made no effort until she called out of the blue.
Well our grandma passed away and that led to other drama and long story short, my sister posted some crap on facebook. My mom and her were emailing back and forth and my sister just kept bad mouthing her and so I decided to email her myself and let her know how I felt about this whole thing.
Of course she always turned everything around because its always about her and then when I had mentioned that maybe this year I would just donate the gifts that I had bought for her kids because nothing is ever good enough, she freaked out. I had said it because I really wasn't sure what to do, but I have decided that I can't take it out on them since it's not their fault their mom is a B. But anyways she called my phone and left me a message saying I'm a lowlife and a B**ch and I don't know the whole story.
For me that was it. I'm tired of her calling people names as though she the right. She is rude and I'm sorry, you don't talk to family the way she has.
My mom has said that she doesn't want to continue dealing with her and I'm in the same boat. I don't agree with the way she acts and how she treats people. And she won't apologize. She expects my mom to apologize even though she told her F off. I don't get her. Do you think it's best to just cut the ties? I just cant get over the way she spoke to my mom and now me. Anyone ever had something similar? What did you do?
