I was soposed to pick my MIL up at the airport this morning. Well, she didn't come. She called DH at 7 am saying that they did go to the airport because there were too many detours. ***? Detours? She was going down to watch Peyton while his sitter is on vacation. DH called her a month ago and asked. He paid for her plane ticket and it is of course non-refundable. Now I understand that she was doing us a favor by coming down to watch Peyton but we were counting on her. Now we have to find someone else to babysit for tomorrow and Friday. I have today off thank goodness. DH is asking for tomorrow off but I have no clue what I am going to do about Friday. Grrrrr.

That's pretty crappy, considering you guys footed the bill for the ticket! I'd be a bit on the livid side, myself! I hope you figure something out for babysitting. I'd do it if I weren't so far away.

Awww, thanks, Kim. I am thinking of asking my best friend, who is also Kim. I tried calling her but she didn't answer. I am crossing my fingers that she can do it.

I'd be demanding to know when my refund of the cost of her ticket was showing up, from her. Too many detours? Are you kidding me? Lazy arse.

I am glad that ya'll agree that her excuse was lame. I know that there have been storms up there so I am sure that is what the detours were about. But my 16 yr old niece is going to watch Peyton. Thank goodness for winter break.

Canceling and then not telling you until the day she was supposed to fly? I would be raging mad! Favor or not it was pretty rude of her not to use the ticket you guys bought her! yikes!
