My sister is so incredibly selfish. She went out to dinner with my mother and some visiting friends, it was understood everyone would pay their own way. My sister showed up to the restaurant with only two dollars. She was not even invited, she invited herself. She stuck my mother with a sixty dollar dinner bill. My mother has paid for two degrees yet she refuses to perform either job. I wonder at times what it is that she does, she doe snot co0ok, or clean for her husband, her children go to school all day. What is her purpose to bum off of all of us and drive us insane? I just do not understand where she gets such a sense of entitlement. Our parents raised us to be quiet, humble, and hardworking she is none of those things.

I think you need to be a bit more supportive towards your girlfriend.

Some people are like that! It's not selfish...It's self-first!

I think that she wants be catered for but doesn't realize that she can't be catered for in all areas of her life. If she would work a little harder and save maybe she could afford a cook and a chef if she so wanted one... To me it seems that she does have entitlement issues. Is she your younger sister that maybe hasn't quite matured yet?

Well children don't always come out the way their parents raised them, and that's for the simple reason that even if children come through their parents they have their own personalities, and your sister had this one. I can imagine you getting upset for this kind of disrespectful behavior she has. I bumped myself in people like that, but you know what? you can get angry, but probably they will not change and they will pay for this wrong attitude when people will get tired of them and start avoiding them. Maybe next time you mother will not invite her again and keep a dinner out in a restaurant with friends a secret to you sister, and so her friends will do if she beahves like that also with them. Good luck I hope she will realize that soon and will work to change it.

Maybe you should have a serious talk with her about this. And your mom should leave her the next time, to pay for her own dinner. That will teach her some manners. TATA.

Yes she really is...where did she get that negative traits?? he he She must be the one to treat your mom for dinner, Then what she's doing all day? if she's not cooking,cleaning,how about her children?living in one roof? Just talk to her and tell her the responsibilities of a mother,of a wife and of daughter.
