Etiquette School is in session! > "Why would I want to do that?"

Going to a funeral but not to the other

<< < (3/3)

OP, I agree with others who've said not to let your mom guilt you into going.  I'm sending hugs to you just because I think this is causing stress to you.

Thanks everybody. I'm calmer now. She called this morning to tell me her mother was at her residence again, apparently the doctors can't do anything for her.

I liked the list suggestion and I'm going to do it this weekend. Fortunaly when the dreaded call comes I'll be more prepared.


OP, do you have caller ID?  If so, you could let calls from her go to voicemail.

Is this worth considering? You might get away with refusing to supply reasons at all. Why try to "sell" any decision that will never be accepted?

You're right. I guess any attempt to explain would make things worse.
