Starshaker I agree it's not fair nor is it nice, but unfortunately some people are just plain selfish and don't care about others so we have no option but to 'accept it and move on'. This is what I've had to learn to do otherwise I would go crazy.
Worst part is I don't know the cause behind it all, but will probably die wondering!
Not easy sometimes, specially at this time of year.
It sounds stupid and pathetic but its the latest in a long list of let downs.
In July I asked my mum to babysit so I could have a christmas night out with a group I go to. She said yes so I booked a room at the same place we were having to meal so that I could have a glass of wine or something. I never go out. My mum never babysits so its not like I ask often. I reminded her a few times and she said she would put in for the day off. Messaged her tonight and she forgot and is working. She cant change it. So ive lost £110 and the chance to get out with friends for a night.
I am married so I have dh and the Dc. My mother couldn't give a shit about me. I often work six days a week in the opposite direction to her (so 50 min drive from work after collecting DC) but if I don't visit twice a week she throws a strop. Yet never rings me or contacts me. My father says I am a disgrace that they licked the ground for me. Bullshit.
That is totally shit op. My mother does that too. So I never ask her to babysit. Then she cries because 'she wasn't well' but is well fit for mini breaks away at least six times a year. Its totally fine with me.
I i was any of my other siblings it would have been remembered. She would have booked extra time off too so she could spend time with them but because its me it just didnt matter. Story of my life really. I really should know better by now.
I know im feeling sorry for myself but I never get a night out. I dont have anybody to go out with.
