Dear (Read's husband),
I emailed you because I don't know your phone number off hand and I don't want my wife to know that I'm doing it.
Over the years, I have kept my mouth shut when you have had "discussions" with B. It was not easy to do so. She is your sister and I tried to mostly stay out of it. However, I'm done with that now. I have kept my mouth shut many times while you have belittled her, insulted her, patronized her, and talked to her in a generally nasty way. I know she may be a pain sometimes, but I'm tired of her being upset by you and your sister D.
I could give a shit if you don't like me or not or whether I get invited to you or D's little silly get-togethers but my wife is very sensitive about these things. One of the reasons I never go is because of the way you and D treat her. If you were anyone else, let me be clear about this, if you were anyone else and you talked to my wife the way that you do, I would have kicked your ass a long time ago. I am so tired of the mounds of guilt that you and D throw B's way constantly about your mother. I'm sorry that your Mom is not doing well. Let me tell you something though, my mother is actually in much worse health and in much worse shape--but that's not B's responsibility nor her or my first responsibility. Our first responsibility is to our children and our family.
B goes out of her way to try and help and be with her mother because she loves her. I am so tired of the awful things that you and D say to her about what she doesn't do. Her mom lives an hour from us. She gets up to see her on average of about once a week. That's quite a bit. That's also time that is taken away from our responsibilities right now--and let me tell you--we have plenty. In addition, your mother calls my house on average, on average of six (6) times a day. The phone calls have been going on for years--even before your mom's health got worse. I tolerate it though. What I will not tolerate anymore is you being disrespectful to my wife. I don't care that she's your sister anymore. If you can't talk to her with respect the way that you would want your wife to be treated, then keep your mouth shut and don't say anything. Which brings me to your wife. Now, as I've stated, I don't give a shit if you or D, or your wife like or talk to me or not--it doesn't make one iota of difference to me. As I mentioned though, my wife is very sensitive to these things. Now, for some reason or another, your wife isn't talking to my wife and de-friended her on facebook. What kind of shit is that? How petty and awful that is. If you had any balls, you would tell her such and tell her to be respectful of your sister--who is nothing but sweet and kind to her.
I've said my peace. If you have anything to say, email me back or call me on my cell phone. Don't talk to B about this. It's bad enough I had to take time out of my day for this but I am tired of seeing my wife upset over petty family nonsense and a brother and sister who should be ashamed of themselves. Pass this on to your sister D too.
Don't you all wish you had family like this...
