To expect my sister to pop in and say hello when visiting my sister next door

I suppose its quite trivial really but I live next door to my older sister and occasionally our other sister who is about the same age as my sister next door pops in to see my sister but never even comes and says hello to me or my ds aged 10.
I get annoyed about it thinking that at least she could come and see ds as after all she is his auntie.
So aibu.

whats to stop you popping next door when you see her arrive????

YABU you could easily go over and say hello yourself.

YANBU at all. I'd hate that. Do they text you to say, We're here having a cuppa in X's, call in?

No text nothing.
I figure that if they don,t ask me round then they are not that bothered so I don,t bother.

Well maybe there has been a bit of a misunderstanding way back down the line? And now both of you are being too stubborn. 'Well, if she's not bothered, I won't bother.'

Do you call into the next door sis at other times? Do you generally get on, all 3 of you?

YANBU. We lived in the block of flats next to my SIL when DS1 was small & MIL would go round there almost daily. She would never pop into see us unless specifically invited & we were never invited over to SIL's. I found it weird but don't think it was deliberate, it's just how they are - rude & thoughtless! Your sisters are probably different though. Maybe wutker's right & it's just a misunderstanding? Invite yourself over or ask them into you
