    What should I do? all she does is start drama with us. And she only wants to see the "right" people, and they are not here.


    If I tell her she cant come, then we will here about it at ever holiday till the invention of a new one, and we are pretty full on major holidays.



    If I tell her she can, then I get bugged and annoyed for 2 hours.


    Any advice? :eek:

    I'm almost in the same bought. Except I am pro-visits vs. anti-visits.

    It is such a touchy decision, how do you keep peace with everybody and not stress yourself and your life out.

    Best of luck. You are gonna need it. :p

    Not a bad idea, I mean really. It looks like you have put a lot of thought into this. almost as much as I have.

    What about then next holiday when I am alive and good?

    Tell her you're going out. Then you don't run the risk of being found out for not being properly dead.

    She starts drama with all of us. this girl is a nightmare... I swear she's a lesbian too man. she complains about the way someone's hair is done, all the way to there socks.

    She leaves sunday but is staying at her parents house, not here.

    2 hours? Wait until you have in-laws.
    2 hours of a whiny cousin will be good practice for the true hell of in-laws.

    To be fair, it does sound like their hair is a bit on the long side if it goes all the way to their socks. Would it really hurt to have a bit of a trim? ;)

    2 hours out of a day? Suck it up and deal with it. How are you going to handle working at a job for 8+ hours every day if you can't suck it up for 2 hours to deal with one annoying relative, consider it practice for adulthood, you'll have to deal with annoying people for more than two hours and more often than just the holidays at some point.

    You can always ignore her and just nod and say "uh-huh" every time there's a pause where it sounds like you should respond. Eventually she'll get the point, and if she doesn't you have a new strategy for dealing with it.

    Tell her to shut the hell up or get out. It sounds like she needs a swift kick.
