This is long and whiney. I totally understand if no one wants to read it - just writing it has made me feel better. : p
Slight back story. My step grandmother is 14 years (I think) younger than my grandfather. They got married when I was 3 years old, and I love her very much - to me she IS my grandmother. She has a daughter that is five years older than me and was pretty much raised by my grandfather. Although when my grandparents got married my step-aunt gained step-siblings, they were all adults starting their families so she was still raised as an only child.
She is one of the most spoiled, selfish people I have ever met in my entire life. I'm not saying all only children are like this - but she is. I really can't stand her. There is so much wrong with the things that she does. Irrelevant fact - her ILs have not even seen pictures of their youngest grandchild because she is punishing them for some slight that even her mother (that usually treats her like the most perfect person in the world) thinks is NBD. That's the kind of person she is.
Step aunt and her H are going through a really tough financial time right now. Step aunts ILs bought and paid for their house as a wedding present - so they have no mortgage. They weren't able to pay their power bill so my grandparents had their entire family of four move into their house until they could get their power turned back on. My grandparents are not doing very well financially either - but they knew the babies (3 and 10 months) needed to be somewhere with electricity. They have also lost their car and didn't have the money at the time for a new one.
My grandparents have gone to Europe for work and have been gone for several months. They are currently using my grandfathers car because he's been gone. When they left the country I was the one that brought them to the airport which is about an hour away in good traffic. Now my step aunt just called me to ask if I could pick them up on Wednesday. She does not have a job. She has just as much time in her day to pick them up as I do.
I'm just so freaking irritated that she will not do something for my grandparents after everything they have done for her. She lives a lot closer to the airport than I do. She's using their car. She should pick them up. She should have dropped them off. She's an ungrateful bitch that doesn't care about anyone but herself. If ANYONE had done even half of the stuff they did for them for me, I would be desperate to find something I can do for them in return. And I know they asked HER to pick them up - because if they really wanted me to do it they would have called me.
I knew as soon as I saw her number on my caller ID that she was calling to ask me to do something for her. She has never called me for any reason other than to ask for a favor. I didn't feeling like dealing with her so I let her leave a voicemail. I haven't called her back yet because I'm just so frustrated and irritated. I'm going to let myself calm down before I call her back.
I guess I know what I'll be doing on Wednesday - driving to the airport in freaking rush hour to pick up my grandparents. Oh well, upside is that I get to see my grandparents.
