Dear Abby: I coordinated and paid for a 70th birthday party for my terminally ill husband. Fourteen people were invited and seven of them were related to my only sister, “Carla.”
During the dinner, her husband was rude to the waitress and at the end of the party was screaming and yelling at Carla over the valet parking ticket. As they left the restaurant, he shoved her. He then got in their car and left my sister and her stepdaughters (from a previous marriage) standing there. They had to order a rideshare to get home.
