Was anyone ELSE ever excluded from family trips or gatherings growing up ??

When I was in the military, I was 19 and was given a one week off. The day I came home I saw my dad packing suitcases, as well as my younger brother and sister, telling me they're going on a vacation to London for the whole week. My dad didn't tell me they were going since he didn't want me to tag along and cost him money. My sister confirmed it with me later on.

Your only son in the military and you pull this ****.


Whats YOUR story everyone ?.

One Christmas my mother had arranged for a photographer to come and do a huge family portrait as we had extended family staying with us. She organised everyone to be in that photo' but completely and deliberately excluded me.

When I was 16, my mother arranged for me to go stay with my grandmother for a week because she "needed my help around the house." What she didn't realize was that my grandmother (on my father's side, had little contact with my mother) was getting a bit forgetful. When I told her I was there to help her around the house, she said "No, your mother and step-father are going on a trip to the Grand Canyon and only wanted to take their two daughters." I was devastated. That was the beginning of my rebellious stage.

When I disclosed to her I was there to help her around the house, she said "No, your mom and step-father are going on an excursion to the Grand Canyon and just needed to take their two little girls." I was crushed. That was the start of my defiant stage.
Do I know you?

But really, haven't all of this had this exact same experience? It's a wonder that any kids have seen the Grand Canyon.
