Woman’s Critical Performance Gets Bad Review From Sister
DEAR ABBY: The letter from the lady whose older sister had criticized her all her life inspired me to write. I know how she feels. I am 74 and my sister is 86. Shes the oldest in the family and I’m the youngest, and she never criticized any of our other siblings the way she criticized me.
After being a widow for eight years. I recently remarried, and when I chose my 4-year-old great-granddaughter for my flower girl, Sis criticized me by saying, “Older couples do not have flower girls at their second wedding."
She also criticized the write-up of my recent wedding in the local newspaper. She said I should not have named all the out-of-town guests, told where they came from and how they were related to the bride or groom — the list was too long and boring.
Abby, I never criticized any of her weddings, and she has been married six times. (Three times before she was 45, and three times after.)
I am enclosing the write-up of my wedding that she criticized. Please give me your honest opinion of it. SICK OF SISTER’S CRITICISM
DEAR SICK: I think the writeup ie lovely. Perhaps your sister isn't aware that it is customary to list all the out-of-town guests, where they came from and their relationship to the bride or groom.
Don't be too hard on your sister, dear. Some older siblings tend to criticize their younger siblings out of habit.
DEAR ABBY: I just had a minor argument with my brother. Several weeks ago, I lost my wallet. It contained the usual contents — credit cards, Social Security card, driver’s license, I.D., etc., and $20 in bills.
Today, the wallet was mailed back to me. It contained everything but the $20. Believe me, I was thankful
and satisfied, as it would have been very inconvenient to replace all of the cards.
My brother thought the person who returned it was dishonest to have kept the $20. I say just having it returned to me was well worth the $20. What do you say?
GRATEFUL IN PHOENIX
DEAR GRATEFUL: I'm with you. However, the person who returned the wallet may not have been the first person who found it. It's possible that another party found the wallet first, removed the $20 and discarded it. Then some Good Samaritan picked it up and sent it to you.
