HI everyone i just celebrated my sons b-day yesterday 7/29 and my sister suppose to come over on saturday to help me with the decoration, i ask her to get here on saturday early since i work until 1pm, well i waited until 3 since i did not hear from her i call and ask her whether she was coming or not she says yes but around 5:30pm she call me from her house she hasn't even leave the house yet so i told her not to worry that i got a lot of things done and that i understand if she is tired however she insisted on coming over by the time she got here i was done and cleaning my kitchen i decided that the rest of the decoration could wait since it was time to cook and clean the kitchen, well she shows up around 6:20 pm and wants me to stop cleaning the kitchen so i could show her what needs to be done i was tire and wanted to get over the cleaning and picking up the mess well after all that she put about 6 ballons on the stairs and call it a day but the funny part is the next day wich one was my son b-day she shows up two hours late did not say sorry and also she supposes to be here early since she was going to paint the kids faces the party was at 4pm and she shows up at 5:48pm i did not say anything to her just hi i couldn't believe it that she could be so careless about her own family but then again she done things like that before. please tell me should i mention to her how lame that is or should i just ignore her ignorance.

just forget it and keep in mind not to expect anything from her in the future. you will just be destroying your day and if ever she wants to help next time let her but don't expect much. that way no bad feelings.

hello tuffy999 i know i stop counting on her long ago this time i figure that it was for my kids and she says she love them so it come as a surprise to me, but she had done a lot of letting down and the thing is that i learn to exclude her but after this i decided that next time she just going to be invited as a regular guess what do you think? do you think that might be a little to much or not

it's the best. if she wants to come at her own time at least you will not be worrying. the party will go on with or without her.

I would mention my disappointment. If you don't, it'll just keep happening and she won't think anything of it.

I know how you feel. what i would do is treat her like a friend. I would always invite her to the family gatherings but I would not ask her for any help what-so-ever. And when she ask if she could ask I would say no thank i don't want a repeat of the birthday party when I really needed some help.

hello wiccania i had mention to her before with other situation similar to this one but it all led to arguiments and i think life is to short i think that i'll have treat her like an aquentance and not a sister or a friend i never ask for her help she offer and that is not good i honestly don't care when she does this nonsense to me but it was my sons b-day and he was waiting for her to paint his face so i think after this i just invited her at the last minute she will not be allowed in any fun activity except as a guest
