What a crappity crap crappy day.

A: Daughter's fiancé, 2 months before the big day hears that his mother won't be coming for the wedding. She can't afford it, because apparently she has to help out with problem B. (This is the third time she has announced she's not coming. I don't give a big rat's ass. I have run out of rat's asses to give.) But why stop there?

B: Fiancé's brother, the Best Man, also will not be coming. Because there has been an ugly break up with his girlfriend, who apparently is wallowing in a Vicodin haze, and neglecting their baby. They are busy planning ugly and expensive custody battles instead, and I guess he can't take a weekend off. But wait, there's even more fun-

C: Fiancé's sister will not be coming. It seems that she is pregnant by Mr. Shitheel, who wants nothing to do with her or his future child, so she can't come because she has to stay home and save her money and await the arrival of the baby. 

(I'm sorry, but FFS. Can we not be dysfunctional one at a time? Maybe a different month?)

D: Fiancé is now hurt and sad. Like many men, he handles this by acting like a big surly baby, and suggested to my Adorable but Oversensitive Daughter that maybe they should reschedule. (FFS.  Reschedule for when? Is there a predicted date for achieving functional familydom?)

E: First major fight. Daughter makes first weeping trip back to Mom's. Waterworks. More waterworks. Doubt. Fear. Insecurity. Still more waterworks. 

F: I keep my mouth shut, except to make soothing Mom noises. If they cancel this thing, I will strangle them both with scalloped pearl trimmed re embroidered Venetian lace. And then beat them with vintage candlesticks. And build an invitation bonfire. Until then, more soothing noises and baking cinnamon rolls for Weepy.

G: I am not good at keeping my mouth shut. It physically hurts. Everybody needs to behave. That's all. Just. Fucking. Behave.

    I want to print selected pieces from item F out on a pad of post-its and have them handy for when I'm dealing with stressful shit. Then, I can just stick them on whatever surface is in front of her and go "MA, SOOTHING NOISES?!?!?!?!? WHERE ARE MY SOOTHING NOISES??????"


    That was hilarious! I hope this starts smoothing out soon!

  • I'm so sorry for the collective dysfuntcion but I love your attitude about it.  I hope in a light of a new day some people (FSIL to start) can come at the situation with a calmer head and the beautiful lace and candleholders won't make an appearance on Dateline.

    Every time I see this all I want to know is how it works. Why will no one tell me how it works?

    @ohhannabelle, all the wine for you.
  • @KeptInStitches, I've seen this on Bar Rescue. Not quite THAT many, but I've seen them do 4. They have these little metal separater things and it pours from the top first.When that's out, it goes to the next level, then the next. They have to be very accurate in the amount they pour in there.

    I echo the same sentiments as PPs.

    After my mom finishes with her soothing mom noises, she likes to say what she would do in this situation with my dad. I feel like my mom would suggest to encourage your daughter to talk with her FI and remind him of why they are getting married and maybe you can have them Skype the ceremony.

    My mom would also be looking at every possible way to get his mother to the ceremony, if money had anything to do with it.

    Keep up being a good supportive mommy. Ive needed mine a lot these past 2 months.

    Aw, how awful!  I hope that whatever happens, it turns out for the best for your daughter.

    Her FI's family sounds like a total trainwreck, and I'm sorry she is getting sucked into their dysfuntion ><
