My ass is chapped.

My new neighborhood has a pool, and I have invited my mom to come over several times to swim.  Last weekend, my brother found out she does this and said "Would it be alright if (SIL and niece) came over to swim?"  I said sure, that would be ok.  So he turns to SIL and says, "Why don't you go over Saturday, I have a meeting then anyway." 

So ass chapping #1 - they invited themselves over and basically told me when they were coming.

So today SIL emails my mom and asks what time they're coming over. 

Ass chapping #2 - she won't even communicate with me about this, she asks my mom.

So basically I have people showing up tomorrow to swim, and I didn't even get to say anything about it.  My mom felt all bad about it but I can't really tell them not to come now or else I'll look like a jerk.  I will be more quick in the future to head them off at the pass, but right now I'll just sulk.

Re: My ass is chapped.

  • Oh, I need to add this, because it's vital:

    If my SIL was a regular joe, I would love to have them come over.  But niece is a TOTAL brat (think screaming "NO!!" all.the.time) and SIL likes her to be a performer and the star (think videotaping everything and saying "Oh, look at (niece!)"  x 79846546

  • I think I'd be less annoyed at my brother for casually suggesting the time, because, I'd assume you could have interrupted and said you were busy then, if it wasn't cool with you.

    I'd be more annoyed that she's asking MIL what time.  Are they planning to drive together?  I think it would be more appropriate to call you, in that situation, unless she and MIL were driving together and she figured MIL had already arranged a time with you.

    SILs can be super annoying. 

  • I would be a little annoyed.  Hopefully, you will have fun anyway! 

    I have girls from work coming over on Monday to go to the pool with me.  I don't like to go alone!  I hope it doesn't rain! 

  • don't you have to escort them?  or not?  Maybe thats a way to kabosh the swim date

    I find the fact that they haven't even talked to you about it more annoying than anything.  It's common courtesy!

  • This would annoy me too, I'm sorry you have to deal with it.
