Should I be upset if my mother-in law cancels at the last minute?
My oldest son, her oldest grandchild will graduate from college in a couple of weeks. For months it was the plan for both my parents and my in-laws to attend. Now, down to the wire, we had to get a head count for the number of tickets we needed. When we called my in-laws yesterday, they stuttered and asked if they needed to make their own arrangements or could they stay with us. When they were told no one was staying with us, they could, they said they didn't know if they could come because they had already promised another grandchild they would attend an 8th grade graduation. When they realized the graduations were a week apart , the latest excuse became "I don't think my bad back can handle the trip". My son had been counting on them attending for months, and this was all discused over the Christmas holidays when we were at their house. So should any one be upset that they have now cancelled?
