Well, I just got my polite “fuck off” letter from the brother.


Edit: He asks, “as a brother”, that we break off contact with his daughter, because WE are making her harder for him to control.

    Sounds to me like a bunch of drama you don’t need and didn’t ask for in the first place. If it were me, he would have just officially burnt his bridges but you are a much nicer person than me. *shrug*

    I feel for you, and I can relate – have a psycho sister living in Tennessee with a husband and four children, and she won’t allow her kids to have anything to do with our mother (or me by extension) because we’re bad influences. How? By letting them drink soda now and then, by not giving them only well-filtered water, by letting them eat grapes picked by exploited migrant workers, blah blah blah. The oldest kid, naturally, is starting to act out against his psycho parents, and of course this just increases their determination that he have nothing to do with outside influences.

    Anyway, fuck ’em. We owe it to the nieces and nephews of our crazy siblings to stay in contact so they know they have a lifeline.

    I’m sorry, deary. What it is with these crazy-ass siblings?

    I’m with both of these lovely ladies on this one. Let Brother Restranged burn whatever bridges he wants to burn, but his actions and feelings shouldn’t have anything to do with his smart, lovely daughter. She’s old enough to a) decide for herself to who she wants in her life, and more importantly, b) not be “controlled” by a crazy parent who obviously doesn’t have her best interests in mind here.

    Big hugs, my dear. I’m sorry for all The Drama.

    Wait a minute…you actually let your nieces and nephews eat those grapes??!! Just what kind of person are you?!


    Welcome to the Insane Family Drama Club! I’m Maggie, by the way. The one who doesn’t drive all the way across the universe to go walking with you ladies on Saturdays, even though it sounds like such fun. One of these days, when Saturday mornings aren’t designated “must clean the house before someone comes to look at it” days. Nice to LJ-meet you!

    Me? I’m EVIL! Muahahahahahahahahahaha. (I think I might have let them once play with something made of plastic. Clearly I’m PURE evil.)

    Nice to LJ-meet you, too – heard a lot about you and looking forward to meeting you in person sometime!

    What an ass. Do you intend to do as he requested? Hmmmm… what a quandry that puts you guys in. That’s really rude and unfair to ask of you all. If he doesn’t want to be in touch with you, that’s one thing, but it’s not fair to her to request you not pay attention to her. I’m so sorry. Wish I could help. Hmmm… I do have a husband who’s an ex army ranger. Maybe I can send in the troops… >)
