Oh man, communication…
My MIL called twice and left a text to my sigoth with a
‘why don’t you ever call me’ ‘please contact me’ with that undertone of ‘hey it’s christmas soon and I’m going to explicitly not invite you since I know you don’t want to, but I’d like you to come regardless’.
/they are now on the phone Not Talking About Xmas… it gives me itches
In contrast, my mom just send an explicit text with asking if we’d come over somewhere between now and new year, and xmas itself would be nice too. However, it’s easy to give ‘no’ as an answer as she just says ‘okay!’.
//we usually try to go in the two weeks that sigoth has off normally at the end of the year, except that he doesn’t have those weeks off this year due to Big Reorganization at work. so that’s not happening.
///I REALLY prefer the direct approach in
this pretty much everything >.<
