I love my sister, don't get me wrong. But seriously, if it was dependant on her to be on time somewhere or the world would end, well I'd bend over and kiss my fat @ss goodbye... I just don't get it. HOW is it you are late to EVERYTHING???
My parents live about 30 minutes from my house, my sister another 20 the other way, hence I'm in the middle. I offered to have her and the kids ride with my in the big Expedition to my folks house for Mother's Day yesterday. My sister is basically poor, and with gas prices as they are, it is harder for her than me to spend the money to drive down there. So I tell her on Saturday to please please PLEASE be at my house no later than noon on Sunday. That gives us time to load everyone into the party bus and get to Mom's by 1. I reiterate that that means she needs to leave HER house by 11:45. Did I need to call and wake her up? She laughs and says no, she can manage noon.
So it's noon on Sunday. I have everything bagged, prepped, loaded into the car. It's now 12:10, but I'm not too concerned yet. It's 12:20 and I'm starting to get irritated. I call my niece's cell phone, as she is the most likely to answer. She does, in a sleep voice. I calmly ask, where are you guys? She says, in bed. I EXPLODE. I start yelling at my poor niece, b/c she was the one who was one on the phone. She wakes up her mother and then tells me they will get moving.
I ask you, how hard is it to get your lazy @ss out of bed by 11 on a freakin' Sunday, when you KNOW you have to be somewhere. I start to cry, just b/c I am so mad that I have to let it out somewhere. I call my mom to tell her we are going to be late and unload on her. Poor woman...
I just don't get it. I just feel it is such a form of disrespect that she acts like this. And she barely even apologized for being late, just made excuses. ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH. If just once she would be contrite I might not get so mad. But she doesn't. She just doesn't care.
Ok, that's my rant. I just don't understand people who have no respect, especially for someone who does so much for her.
