im just fuming with my cousin. about 3-4 years ago my aunt died of cancer, we werent a very close family when it happened but afterwards, when my cousins were dealing with the will and my aunts bf who was being a pain in the ***, we all became closer, went on hol together and really became a family.
then 2 years ago my cousins youngest daughter was starting primary school which was just at the top of my street, the eldest already went there but because the young one was just starting, for the first week she finished at 1:30pm and the other at 3:30pm. so my cousin and her hubby work and live miles away and i finish early so i said for the first week, ill take care or the little one and when they come to get the older one at 3:30 she can pick the young one up from my house down the road.
but my cousin being the complete selfish cow she is, called me late and asked me to pick the older one up too, i said ok coz i didnt want her to be left at school on her own obviously, she agreed to be at my house by 5pm. she turned up at 7pm. she did this for the whole week, taking complete advantage. the poor girls were in absolute tears thinking their mum was never coming back, we called and called her with no answer, 10 mins later her hubby turns up to get them, they were crying their hearts out wanting their mum.
anyway she asked me to do it again for the next week and i said yes as long as she picks them up when she sayd she will. so i thought i was picking them up on the wednesday and her hubby was there instead, she hadnt even bothered to tell me not to come. like im not busy doing other stuff and going out of my way with her. i was fuming then. we later found out that she was having an affair, so im guessing she didnt pick up the kids coz she was with her lover.
over the past 2 years my parents have tried to reach out to her, theyve invited her round for tea, sent christmas and birthday cards and presents, gave her a washing machine for her new house but never got cards from her, or even a thankyou. she lives in the street behind us and we havent seen her for 2 years.
shes even turning her sisters against us. we never see her sister, she lives abroad but comes to our city regularly but will never come and see us coz shes telling her sister absolutely rubbish about us when we havent done anything.
then a couple of days ago she went to see my gran and im not sure how the argument happened but my cousin said that my dad can blank her but hes not doing it to her kids, just coz we didnt send a card, but my dad didnt send one coz we dont see her. my cousin ended up shouting at my gran, saying my gran always takes my dads side and we’re all up her other sisters **** coz we see her alot and she doesnt care if she never sees my dad or my gran ever again and stormed out.
thing is my dad and gran both bend over backwards to help her, they go out of their way, sacrafice things for themselves just for her. and it makes me so so mad when she is so out of order like that. we’ve done absolutely nothing to her, shes took complete advantage of me and shes taking it out on my family.
i personally dont care if i never see her again, shes cost me a job before, shes screwed me over. im a very forgiving person but shes pushed me too far. id love to tell her exactly what i think of her but i dont know what to do. im just furious shes treating my gran like that when its not her fault, and to say that about my dad is well out of order. i just dont know what to do
