As you can probably imagine, he immediately felt hurt. He thought it was extremely selfish of his sister to just reach out to him for a favor after not speaking to him for five years. And a very expensive favor at that.
That’s why he decided to decline his sister’s request.
“Telling her that while I was happy about her upcoming nuptials, it was unfair for her to expect me to invest so much of my time, resources, and expertise for free, especially after the way she treated me,” he explained.
Nonetheless, his parents are very upset that he told his sister no– claiming that since it’s been so long, he should have just forgiven her.
So, they have accused him of acting vengeful and using this as an opportunity to “get back” at his sister.
“But honestly, I’m just deeply hurt,” he vented.
Still, with his parents taking his sister’s side, he’s now wondering whether refusing to cater his sister’s wedding actually makes him a jerk or not.
How would you feel if your sibling reached out after years of no contact and asked for such a favor? Does he have a right to feel upset? What would you do if you were in his shoes?
