Seriously I can't believe there could be an update so quickly.
My brother decided to "announce" his birthday party plans. Its 5 weeks away and other people have unplanned birthdays before his.
I wasn't planning to attend anyway and had no reason to make this known to him now. He sent various family members a text that said "I have made other plans the night of my birthday; therefore we will celebrate at lunch." In the middle of the day when I'm working. I replied "sorry, can't make it; I'm working."
I received several phone calls and texts with yelling that he is so hurt that I would "abandon my only brother" for other people. I stopped listening. He called again this morning, nicely asking to be called back. I did (my mistake). He started yelling more and then hung up.
He has since called other family members yelling and screaming at all of them. Oh... and the kicker: he wants my mom to pay for his party. This is after he called her an f... b*... for "spreading lies" about him.
So happy that I had already decided that I was done with him.
