So, a few weeks ago DH told me that one of his Marine buddies was going to ask DH's brother to the USMC ball (it's not like THAT but it still is very weird) I thought it was very odd but didn't think it would happen and no way would I want DH's brother to tag along on our Vegas vacation and ball.
Today as DH was buying tickets he informed that this friend had asked his brother and that they were going to the ball. NO NO NO. Normally I wouldn't really care who went to the ball, but with DH's brother, I like him sometimes when he acts normal, which is a rarity. But most of the time he is very immature, constantly cracking dumb jokes and acting like a 10 year old boy (not exagerrating) No one takes him seriously at all. Not to mention he doesn't have a job, has zero money and all he does is party party party, which to me is fine if you can support your habit, but he can't. Who is going to pay for everything?! It's Vegas, I know he is going to want to party, get wasted and who knows maybe get arrested again. I don't want us to be put in a position where we feel the need to buy him food all weekend or he'll go hungry. And it's just not about money, I was beyond annoyed during Friday's dinner when I had to sit at a table with him cause he was acting so incredibly dumb. I cannot be put through that for a whole weekend, especially what is supposed to be a fun weekend for us! I feel like at the end of this trip I will end up leaving him out in the desert for the crows to feast on him!
Am I wrong that I do not want him to go? Should I just drop it? I feel like if he goes DH will be on babysitting duty all weekend cause he'll want to watch over his brother to make sure he doesn't do anything stupid. I've never been to a ball so I don't know exactly what it's like but I just think it would be weird for him, he'll be the only guy who isn't in uniform. Not to mention he can't act appropriate when it is needed.
