Grrrr! So no more surprise then.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok, so it's Max's 35th birthday next Friday. He has been so sweet and good to me lately so I organised a big surprise birthday dinner for him at my girlfriend's restaurant.

I emailed everyone involved and twice - TWICE - made it very clear that this was a surprise. Everyone was going to get there at 6.30, we were going to get there at 7.00, so he did not suspect anything.

His sister, who had already got all the details from me and their Mum, and who knew that the kids were invited, rang Max on his mobile about ten minutes ago and said, `Just wanted to confirm all the arrangements for next Friday night at Santa Fe for your birthday. Can the kids come?'


She didn't even have the courtesy to be especially apologetic when I finally snaffed the phone off him and spoke to her myself. Honestly, I like Max's sister and her family very much, but they are very selfish and can be very difficult people, soooo different to everyone else in his family.

Thank goodness he has no idea his favourite sister and nephew are flying in from Melbourne to join us. So there's still some surprise left (and really, the best one, too). His Mum and I are the only ones who know about this so there's no chance of it getting out. But still...I'm so disappointed.

What a gumboot, why didn't she call you to ask if kids were ok?

I thought numpty was just a kiwi word, guess not.

Duct tape for her big mouth for Christmas!

Sarah, I hope you all have a wonderful time on Friday. I'm sure Max will be thrilled to see his sister from Melbourne.

Good grief! Does her elevator go all the way to the top? I hope her kids get brains from their father because if they inherited them from her they're in deep doggie doo!
