    Default Nasty Family members

    I got a txt from one of husbands sisters yesterday.

    She had hounded me during his last days, to the point of flattening my ph and stressing me out...she also didn't get to come down and is a bit dim,.....it took some rather blunt explaining to let her know she'd be too late. And I was accurate on that. Perhaps that bothered her too.

    Anyway one other sister did make it (she fights with her and that was probably part of the reason for the txt) and one brother also missed out. Both this crazy sister and that brother did see him when we were up last December though.

    But she seems to have had a snot about it and ranted on in a rather illiterate and unpunctuated way saying how horrified his mum would have been and did I ever love him, no I didn't, and how his last time was hell because of me, and he was deprived of his caring family etc and I should never contact her as she will block me.

    Its nastier than that but that's the general gist.

    Yep you can't pick your relatives, lots of horrible people around who haven't got life sussed hence the irritability and bad temper, striking out at other people.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Losing your husband is quite bad enough, you don't need this extra hassle.

    At times like this, often the best thing to do is don't respond. Just let things rest for a while. The other party might calm down and even regret her words. If not, you can't be responsible for the behaviour of others, you have your own life to lead.

    Just ignore idiots and do not let them get to you. There is no way to control other peoples thoughts and no profit in trying to do so.

    We were always told that the idiots do that to get attention. If you don't react it's no fun for them so they usually give up. As Clive says, just ignore them, and they'll get tired of no reaction.

    Yes, but she polluted my memories...I'd suddenly think of husband and her comment would pop into my head.

    One of his/her brothers helped some, he said: (she) is just a ignorant misinformed dumb *****

    Blocking their number also works.

    If it were me, I may have been tempted to use a four asterisk (****) insult.

    Some people use being negative of others, putting others down etc as a means to quell or nullify their grief. My advice would be to be charitable and give the dumb ****/***** the benefit of the doubt.

    You're not one of those. Well done, you.

    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.

    Her grief...I've heard that before.
    She had fights with one of the other sisters (among others). They haven't spoken since.

    Other sister made it up to see husband in hospital. To be honest I think she's snotting partly cause of that and partly because she'd said for the whole time we were here, she'd come down for a holiday/visit and never did.

    Guilt.

    I've ignored her and will do so forever.
