OH and I have recently moved to the same town as the rest of his and my family, which has put us in the position of being able to host christmas dinner this year- this would be for my 3 DS and their DP/DC and my mum. Problem being it has been a difficult year financially for us and whilst we don't mind (obviously!) doing the bulk of everything, at the suggestion of one of my DSis we asked if everyone would mind contributing just a few quid (£5!) towards buying the huge joint of beef that everyone wants. <br><br>DM has thrown a huge paddy at this, saying she is a VIP and after all she has done for us she shouldn't have to do tribute towards her own dinner. Mum has just had a sizeable inheritance and is in a better position than any of us to contribute. I would let it go, I know it seems petty, but as a matter of principle it has pissed me right off that she has this sense of entitlement above any of the rest of us- and believe you me she is no more entitled!! AIBU to insist she chips in or just fucks off and has christmas dinner elsewhere?
