So my 2 sisters are planning a trip to Greece we live in the States. We are Greek and I have never been and they are going with some college roommates. My one sister whom was invited and I have never been. They are going to visit with some cousins and go back to the village my Dad came from.
I was not extended an invitation to go on this trip. I would have never gone had I been invited but I feel a bit hurt I was not invited.
And when the trip looked like it was getting canceled my one sister asked me to go with her and my other sister. I felt a bit like a last minute choice.
So my one sister calls me tonight all excited saying they booked their flights. Then she says that my brother in law will be taking them to the airport 2.5 hours away. Then she proceeded to ask me if I would pick her up. She does not want to pay for parking at the airport etc. I said maybe maybe not and I was honest and said I felt slighted for not being asked to go which she knew. She assumed that I would drop everything and pick her up at the airport.
My sister can be less than fun to be around and I cant' imagine her mood after traveling for close to 12-18 hours and being stuck in the car with her for 2-3 hours
Am I being ugly or am I just setting a boundary.
No one informed us - family bereavement
Should we ban them? - politicians on TV
Hard to develop relationship - family far away
