    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Ellen, thanks, your post was so funny. Wonder if I could ship SIL off to China.
    Well everyone else is happy for my daughter, she's the only holdout, so I told my daughter not to worry about it. When my daughter was small, she and this aunt were very close and it's hurt my daughter immensly over the years that this aunt became so strange. Ah well, family. At least I don't have to see her but apparantly once every 3 years or so.

    Thanks all, I know I did the right thing too about the friend. Not going to answer and told my husband not to answer the phone when I'm asleep anymore either.

    Whether they be family or not, unfortunately some people need to make every situation center around themselves.

    Isn't that the truth!

    Well, MRD, I have a way for the SIL thing at the wedding. Seat your brother and the SIL separately and make her sit in BFE. Maybe she's spouting off because she knows she's not close to the situation. I have an ex-SIL like that. My sons and I have chosen to ignore her rantings. If you ignore them enough, they don't matter so much.

    As for the phone, no one said you had to answer a phone just because it rings.

    I believe I'd block her number, and any number she calls from. And stop calling her 'friend' Say, "the idiot who calls my husband names and cusses him." We will know which one.
    And yep, if your daughter wants her uncle at the wedding, she will just have to accept that SIL is part of the package, and make a decision. And you will have to honor it. I wouldn't worry about it--there is some family drama at most weddings, somewhere, and everything turns out ok. You do however, reserve the right to tell her to keep her nose out of your business when she starts her stuff.
    Anyway, the wedding is a long way off. I wouldn't worry about anything that could happen there for at least another year--you are talking about October 2010, aren't you, not the one coming up?

    I should have put "ex" friend and I need help figuring out how to block numbers. Once you block one, what does the caller hear?

    And I'm not going to worry about the wedding until later. Maybe she won't come. She has health issues and maybe they will prevent her from traveling that weekend.

    .
    I don't know--the only few times I've done it, I had gotten to the point that I didn't care if it was "this number is not in service" "your call cannot be completed as dialed" or "this person hates you and never wants you to call again--you're blocked!
    I think you can do it before they ever call you, or you can wait till they do call and it's *86 or something like that. Look in the front of the phone book, and it's there somewhere among the gobbledegook--or you could go to the phone co's website and search on 'call blocking'.

    That's funny! It sure wouldn't leave any doubt as to why you aren't answering the phone!

    In my fantasy, it sounds just like Donald Trump dressing down an "apprentice", and saying "you're fired!" only with the phone related message
