Okay people, sorry if this gets confusing but i'm so mad/upset that i could end up typing anything!! Okay small bit of backround, H2b is from england, has one brother who is married with 2 young kids. H2b really wanted them to involved in the wedding as they have never been to visit Ireland. He asked his brother to be best man & his 2 young kids to be flower girl & page boy. yesterday he recieved the following text
Hey mate, small problem. won't be able to make it to your wedding cos i have to take my holidays the week before & i cant afford to take the extra time off, sure now we have our passports we can come another time.
Now maybe it's just me but i dont think a text message is the most appropriate method of telling h2b this, and in fairness they have known the date of the wedding for a year & 1/2 now & all he'd have to take off is 2 days max. H2b is so upset & cant even repy to msg!
What does he mean he has to take his holidays the week before? Why cant he take them the week of the wedding? That sounds like a load of crap to me. i dont blame you or your poor h2b for being upset.
What a bastard! You're poor H2B must feel horrible. I don't really have any advice but I just couldn't read and not say something. What is that man's problem; does he not realise how much that would hurt your H2B. Does he have other family, or is it just him and his brother? Thats just mean.
wow, now that is a nasty thing to do, didn't even have the decency to ring him, i'd be furious

That a bit shitty of his brother to do that. And especially by text, he could have at least rang.

I'm not surprised your H2B is upset... It amazes me how many people think the wedding is about them and not the actual bride and groom...
I know he has set holidays but surely his brothers wedding would be classed as a big family event and his bosses would make an exception for 2 days. Very ad form on your h2bs' brothers part and to do it by text!!
Maybe he should call in sick for the two days?! He wont need a doctors note if its under 3 days.
ah jaysus that's so rude. NOt even to ring? any chance he's just winding your h2b up? If not, then he has every right to be upset.
COuld you talk to the future inlaws, get the MIL or someone to ring and give the brother an earful? Maybe if he realises the entire family are annoyed he'll make more of an effort.
