My SIL has a history of expecting help (financial and otherwise) from others but she expects this help on her terms. I've always struggled with this. I'm not saying that i'm not willing to help her out, but I don't appreciate her expecting the help and on her terms.
So last night, at 10:30 she TEXT hubby to say that she didn't have any hot water and could she come for a shower. Tink & Hubby had not showered yet either. Hubby text her back, "NOW"
SIL "either 10:45 tonight or at 5:45 am tommorrow."
What kind of choices are those. I was already in bed, Tink brings the phone into me to read, why I don't know, it's not my sister! I just responded with "ugg" . AND if she REALLY was in a bind why in H E L L did she just not call on the phone vs. texting.
I don't know why it bugs me, but I got to thinking about what I would have done in the same situation. I think I would have a) taken a very fast cold shower or b) heated some water up on the stove for a quick bath or c) gone without for a day.
I tend to try to take care of things myself instead of asking for help. I don't like to ask for help. Her first response is expect someone else to deal with it for her. And as my dear friend pointed out this morning, that is a difference is personalities. Okay yes it is, but it still bugs me!
