Have been advised by the expert Mners here this needs a new thread....

So here it is.

Have printed off todays' email from the sister from hell for friends DH who is dropping in later to read, probably drink and discuss.....

Thanks so much for all your replies.... You ladies are helping me reain sane when I really really really want to lose the plot spectacularly!

Am about to sort dinner and stuff so wll update further later when friends DH has been and I know what to do if anything....

DF just read the email and is "do recycling and smash stuff" to "absorb before he comes over really South London.... sad. He is furious at the sister even referring to our recent loss amongst other comments in the message and wants a level head before our friend arrives...

All will be fine..... Will update later.

details, you are torturing us with half told stories...

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Thu 27-Jun-13 19:57:31

Can anyone link me to part 1? I haven't read it!

diddl Germany Thu 27-Jun-13 19:58:10

Just skimmed other thread.

Congrats on your engagement & GM!

doubleshot I've just seen this thread today and it has been a welcome distraction from RL headaches! smile

I can only say shock to your friends sister! You have done an amazing job being so level headed with the endless string of madness you've helped your friend deal with!

Really hoping it has happy endings! smile

Hope that link works.

Doubleshot, congratulations on your engagement.

Does the sister live in an alternate reality?

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 27-Jun-13 20:00:50

Wow! just when it looked as though this was sorted!!

friend's sister needs a torch, she is so far up her own arse!

the reference to your loss is unforgivable.

She told me you guys had another loss recently (sorry to hear that), so thought my getting in contact might help...

just lost for words really. in what way has she helped you?

and i'm sorry for your loss. you've really rather a lot to deal with sad

Ponders Thu 27-Jun-13 20:06:08

thanks for the new thread, double (though it is a massive shame-on-her that you needed one)

your DF is right to be angry sad

shock
And there was me thinking there was a happy ending after the other thread!

BoreOfWhabylon Thu 27-Jun-13 20:11:22

Congratulations on your engagement double and shock and angry for you at latest developments.

doubleshotespresso Thu 27-Jun-13 20:14:43

To be honest her self-absorbed, over-entitled actions have probably with hindsight provided me with a welcome distraction from the MC, but I am so full of rage at the way she dared to refer to it (as if she ever cared anyway) and then said sorry in brackets ..... Funny, that bit did not make my blood boil until I had re-read the message I was so sideways upon receiving the email from her i. The first place.

I confess to a little blub in the loo at work, followed by super strength coffee to pull me together. I am so determined any progress made with helping our friend will not be hindered by her... Her DH is due here in an hour or so hopefully he will lead on this. DP thinks he will explode and then become very businesslike....

Will let you all know...

Congrats double!!!
Just been catching up on the thread.

I'm sure friends DP will do the right thing, he seems to have so far. I wouldn't be nay rush to show friend the email.... seems like her DP and her mother should sort this one I think! Can't believe the brass neck of the woman!!

MerryOnMerlot Thu 27-Jun-13 20:15:51

OMFG! Haven't commented on earlier thread as so many people beat me to it!

You really, really couldn't make this stuff up could you? Having said that, given your previous posts about the sister and DPP, it's not really that surprising!

Do keep us posted double. I'm sure I'm not the only one waiting to hear that the sister-from-hell has got her just desserts!

p.s. Do you know any film producers? This would be a blockbuster!

ISeeSmallPeople Thu 27-Jun-13 20:20:01

Good luck with friend's DH tonight.
But I would just pass it on to him & her mum to deal with, this is not your argument, despite the quite quite mad sister trying to blame you.

SugarPasteGreyhound Thu 27-Jun-13 20:21:28

She really is a class A biyotch!

maternitart Thu 27-Jun-13 20:23:38

Go you!

First Aunt? Replace the A with a C and you're pretty much there...

ISeeSmallPeople Thu 27-Jun-13 20:23:44

I foresee demotion from First 'Aunt' to 'Mad, last, are you sure she's related to us? Aunt''

SingingSands Thu 27-Jun-13 20:27:20

Blimey, some people just don't know when to back down graciously, do they?!

I'm starting to feel a bit worried about the sister turning up, what dramatics she might perform on the day. It would be awful if she was to turn the lovely day that you and your friend have planned, into something she would tut and sneer at, and potentially push you out of. She is FIRST AUNT after all!

ZillionChocolate Thu 27-Jun-13 20:30:36

Congratulations! Please don't let either you or DF murder anyone and ruin it all!

AaDB Thu 27-Jun-13 20:32:12

I think silence would kill her.

Terrible cunt deserves a biscuit

diddl Germany Thu 27-Jun-13 20:35:59

Be a bit sad if the sister was accidentally given the wrong date, wouldn't it?

I can't understand at all what type of event the DDP thought he was organising.

Or why sister thinks he should be apologised to.

Has he blacklisted her??!!

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Thu 27-Jun-13 20:38:45

<shamelessly marks place>

She as no concept of boundaries does she? Does she know that Fronk has asked you never to darken his doorstep again? I'm not sure how she expects to resolve that one - not that you'd agree in a million years!

monicalewinski Thu 27-Jun-13 20:39:00

Just saw the new thread, I last read when you'd got engaged so have now been swotting up on developments - O.M.G. What a nutter the sister is! Good luck with this latest twist - sure you'll be as awesome as ever though, I'll keep reading and am eagerly awaiting updates (as is all of MN!!).

oh my gosh!
