Dear Miss Pearl,
I had to make sure I can handle the response before I
send this letter, because you and your readers are BRUTAL. I think I'm ready
My family is planning a party for my mother's 80th birthday. This is
suppose to be something special for my mother, we are all financially involved
in this. My problem is my sister sends out her invitations to everyone saying
it's her daughter's birthday party, my mother's and my brother.
knew that she was going to do this, my other sister said just let it go. Miss
Pearl, I am tired of my ghetto family popping up with a cake for a birthday that
has nothing to do with them or there kids. When my son had a going away to
college party, my other sister came with her son a cake and walked around
telling everyone its for her son also.
I told my sister that the only
birthday I will be celebrating on that day is my mothers. I think she was wrong
for doing it and it should be addressed, this is why they keep doing it. I
thought we were going to do nice fancy invitations, not a email. I'm looking
forward to hearing your response to tell me if I'm wrong or not.
Pissed Off Sister
Dear One Pissed Off
You have no reason to fear being cursed out (at least not from
me) because I'm on your side with this one. Your ghetto assed family needs to
put up, or shut up! Your mother is turning 80 years old, and just being here for
that many years is deserving of special recognition, and not one that she should
have to share with ANYbody - so for your sister to decide that she's going to
turn a celebration of your mother and her 80 years here on earth into something
about someone else is not only classless, but it's ALSO disrespectful.
you planned a party for your mother, then it should be about your mother and I
don't care how selfish or petty that sounds, turning someone else's celebration
into something it's not is disrespectful - that's like me walking into your
wedding reception with a cooler full of beer, a deck of cards and some dominoes
talkin' about, "It's Tay Tay and Malika's birthday too!"
People like your
sister don't see anything wrong with the stuff they do, but there IS something
wrong with it. She's cheap and figures it's easier to "bring a cake" to someone
elses party, than it is to plan one on her own - and it's WRONG, wrong,
Tell your sister that the next time you plan an event and she
decides that she's going to co-chair that event without an invite, she will be
escorted to other side of the door along with her cheap assed cake and any
UNintended "honorees" who show up with her ghetto ass!
wants to do a joint event, it's customary to ASK the person planning the damn
thing in the first place. You don't just show up at a birthday party with a cake
and ask where you should put someone else's gifts! Your sisters are dumb as
Tell them huzzies where to get off!
