So, my daughters dance recital is this Friday and I have had numerous conversations with my mother-in-law about the recital coming up. We have bought tickets the past two years for them and they didn't go either year because she didn't feel well, she has lupus and everyday is kind of hit or miss for how she is going to feel. So, this year since they are selling tickets at the door, my husband and I decided not to buy tickets and that if they actually go to the recital, we would pay for their tickets at the door. I guess since we didn't buy them tickets yet and send out a formal invite?? she is mad because she called last night to ask about whether we wanted them at the recital which is silly because why wouldn't we and since I didn't answer the phone is a very pleasant tone because our little one has been running a fever of about 103 to 104 for the past two days and we have gotten much sleep she hung up the phone on me. My response was "it is up to you guys, if you want to the come to the recital, then come along" which I didn't really think was being mean??
sorry for rambling, but I am at a loss?
So, no, it does not sound mean. Some people are actually attention seekers and it gets rather pathetic.
