Had lunch with a friend of mine. We were getting caught up on work, families, etc... She told me this story and was wondering if her comment was snarky or not....
DF was at her son's home over the holidays. Her DS is married and the gathering included DF, her other DS & his wife, and her DIL family. Lots of pics taken. Everyone having a good time. A few days later, DIL posts a collage of about 70 pictures on FB. Pictures include everyone who was at the gathering, except DF. DF thinks this is odd, pictures were taken of everyone including her and yet, out of 70 pictures, she is not in one. She is a little hurt and comments "Very nice, pictures of your friends and loved ones." DIL gets angry and tells DS that his mom is being snarky. Is she?
There is a little background info. DF's DIL is a hair stylist. DF would have her hair cut by DIL and pay her around $75 - 100 (more than she paid anyone else) because she was her DIL. However, DF was never really happy with the way DIL would cut her hair. Although she tried to explain what she wanted, DF's and DIL's styles never meshed. Another friend recommended a different stylist DF tried and liked (I thought her hair looked much better as well). DIL was angry about this, probably more about the $$ (more background I will not get into).
I told DF that her comment in and of itself isn't snarky but maybe her DIL is feeling a little guilty and trying to pass the blame. What do you think?
