Family went to a benefit to help out a family that lost their home to a fire. It was pretty crowded so there were not a lot of places to sit. We did find a small table for the kids and DH and I just stood to eat our meal. We didn't mind. Well as we were standing there in walks the ex-cousin. Boy did we get a dirty look. She has both boys with her. We say Hi to them and ignore her. We just tried to avoid her. I was talking with one of the boys right in front of her, just to make him smile, because even though we dislike her we won't take it out on the boys, unlike her taking her attitude out on my kids. She snapped at him to hurry up. As we were leaving she flipped DH off! He returned the gesture even though I told him to not to. I know we won't be able to always avoid her, but it makes me mad that she treats my kids like garbage and gets DH in a bad mood by giving him dirty looks and gestures. I did think of some nasty things I would like to do, but she's not worth it. Sometimes I hate small towns.
