My (second) cousin is a pain in the ass
Sooo, having a bit of an ass-pain issue with a cousin (well, second cousin. Who I hadn't met until November.) She moved across the country to my radtastic little town after breaking up with her dude of 7 years. And she moved out here with a different dude. They lived in my house until the day Cousin decided she didn't want to be with new dude and split, leaving new dude as our roommate (and he rocks. Seriously.) Then we all found out through the grapevine that old dude was moving to town to get back together with Cousin. Yadda yadda yadda ... he's in town for at least 3 weeks before I meet him, but the whole time Cousin is talking about how much fun her and old dude are going to have at my Hawaii wedding.
Wait, hold the phone ... what? She didn't ask me. Just told me. At first new dude/Roommate wasn't comfortable with this. Understandably. Now he's saying he'll be there regardless. I tried to talk to her the other night about how I wasn't comfortable that she just assumed, but if she and old dude could attend with Roommate also in attendance and not have issues, that'd be great. She flipped out, burst into tears in the middle of the bar and started accusing me of judging old dude. Um, no. I'm just trying to make sure everyone plays nice, and also convey that it was a pretty shit situation for me to be in in the first place.
Now she's not coming at all and I feel like an asshole. But I also had to stand up for myself. Was that so wrong?
Possibly sucking at life.
You are not an asshole, but you did sorta choose sides here. You had to.
Now stop feeling guilty and move on to more important things, like WHAT ARE YOU WEARING TO THE REHEARSAL DINNER?
