I'm reporting my oldest sister.
Relevant BG on my sister: She's very dramatic, loves to air out her dirty laundry in public, twists the truth around, flat out lies, etc. /BG
Our cousin got married this Summer. A few months prior to the wedding, my Oldestsis found out that invitations had gone out, and she hadn't received one. Cue public flip out on Facebook. She was so HURT! She didn't understand why cousin was so MEAN to her! I mean, she had invited cousin to HER wedding! Why didn't cousin want my sister to share in her happy day???
First, sister's wedding was in 1993, when cousin was 10 years old. Second, sister didn't pay for her wedding; my parents did. Cousin and her fiance are paying for the wedding themselves. Third, sister got married in a tiny town where prices were MUCH smaller. Cousin got married in Toronto, Ontario=HUGE overpriced city. And did I mention the HUGE family? That's just on her mother's side! The guest list also had to include the equally large family on her father's side, her fiance's family and their close friends. The line had to be drawn somewhere.
Knowing cousin, she must have physically felt every cut to the guest list that she had to make. My twin sister and I were appalled, embarrassed and ashamed by our older sister's behavior. We weren't invited to the wedding either, but completely understood why! We both contacted our cousin and let her know as much: she's not made of money, our family is huge, and we knew she would have invited everyone if she could have. Twinsis and I made it clear that we absolutely did not share Oldersis's sentiments. Poor kid needed to hear it!
