So, there's this couple that my sister is friends with (they're in their 40's) She invited them to this barbecue thing we had for my mom last Mother's Day and they got COMPLETELY PLASTERED. Just bombed out, they drank so bloody much. Which was okay, I guess, they were all having fun, and my sister was also totally wasted and so was my dad. Fine and dandy except that the guy fell asleep on the couch then the woman did. Then they ended up driving home at some point before everyone got up. Thank god they got home alright.
The guy was also smoking pot throughout the night. DISLIKE. I guess, at least he did it in the backyard?
So, yeah, the point of this is that they are coming here for my nephew's birthday party. Wippee! You know, I'd actually be kinda okay with this IF my mom would actually stay up and deal with them at the end of the whole thing. Like make sure to call them a cab and get them the hell out of our house and make sure they get home safe! But she won't bloody well stay up late!
And I can't deal with drunk people.
My sister also invited this guy. I only met him once, but I got kind of a bad vibe from him. Can't really explain it. I don't really like him and I would much prefer it if she hadn't invited him to MY home without asking. But no, she just calls up today and tells my mom "Whoops, change of plans, we're having the party at your house and I'm inviting all these people who can't hold their liquor and don't know when they've outstayed their welcome. See ya then!"
I'm not the only one annoyed either! My mom wanted to go to bed last time because she found them obnoxious. They were falling and tripping and spilling their crap all over. It was a mess.
We were supposed to have this B-day party at my other sister's house, the one that just got married, but then she changed her plans or something. Now my other sister's pissed. She thinks that now that she's married she doesn't have time for family stuff or just doesn't want to spend time with us. And she's mad at her for some other stuff.
See, it's not just me!
I actually really enjoy our family get-togethers, I just wish she hadn't invited these other people. Cause, you know, they're not family. Now if she had invited her other friend that I've known since I was a kid, that would've been fine. She's fun, for the most part. But these people... I just feel uncomfortable around them.
Anyways, that was long.
