I was talking to FH's aunt about whether to invite a cousin's long-term GF to the shower (I didn't want her to feel excluded or pressured to come). The aunt called me while I was at a conference and I think the background noise caused some confusion. 2 weeks later- her sister (mother of the cousin in question) wrote me an emailing insisting she gets invited to the wedding.
I quickly emailed her back and clarified she was a definite about the wedding- the shower invite was the mystery (I am in the camp who believes 18+ get their own invite and the option to bring a date- even if it is expensive- not my place to judge relationship statuses of my FH's 56 cousins).
I read the email again and became very upset- it was so rude and pushy. She should have called me (or my FH) - the email was in poor taste. [I get why she didn't talk to my FMIL- she suffered a major stroke and lost her ability to communicate easily]
Has anyone else experienced pushy relatives or complete rudeness via email?? I really wished she picked up a phone instead of being mad for 2 weeks about incorrect information then emailing me like that!
Just curious. Share your experiences...
PS: I am not hosting the shower- just in charge of the shower guest list for practical reasons
