Default Unexpected guests?

We are having a small get together for my daughters birthday today, and only invited close family. My SIL and her family came but she brought over a friend and her toddler daughter. She walks in and is super loud and annoying, her small daughter is running around the house crying playing with my sons toys and just making a mess. How would y’all handle this? I came to my room to get away, I told my wife to come get me when the party starts… I forgot to mention they got here about 3 hours early…

Seriously though, it’s your house. say something if it bothers you that much.

Move the party outside. Close/ lock bedroom doors to keep the kid out. Put some ear buds in to drown out the smoke detector…. I mean… the other loud, annoying sound.

Well, I'm afraid I'd have to say something to the "guest" who brought guests... after the party later on... If she get's all butt-hurt, then problem solved and you won't have to worry about her doin' it in the future... If she understands, still problem solved... sounds like a win-win to me... In the meanwhile just grin n bear it... OR you could "bare" it! That'd break things up pretty quick I bet!

Ok I’ve been their. There’s really only 4 options to handle this situation. Choose wisely!

1. Get hammered and shoot your guns in the back yard and curse loud.

2. Get hammered and shoot the toddler with a water gun everytime she makes a sound and when the mom says some about it shoot her as well.

3.Leave and head to a bar or buddies house.

4 suck it up !

I know exactly how frustrated you feel. I’d be furious!

In spite of this, the rules of etiquette and gracious living require that you look the other way and not make a scene…during the party. You should remain civil and courteous at all times while in public.

That said, these same rules of etiquette and gracious living state that it is NEVER okay to bring an uninvited guest along to an event to which you, yourself, are an invitee. After the event, I’d do one of two things: either 1) have a very stern talk with my sister-in-law, pointing out her faux pas and letting know that friend and child were an embarrassment or 2) say nothing and never invite her to a function in your home again. The option you choose will most likely be dictated by the politics and other dynamics in your family.

Know this, however: If you choose to confront this, YOU will be the “bad guy” in your family, not your sister-in-law. For whatever reason, when it comes to family dynamics, the perpetrator of the infraction is almost never held accountable, while the one who holds the perpetrator accountable is vilified for being confrontational and “unforgiving.”

As for me, it bothers me not one wit to be vilified. By anybody.

I’m a more the merrier person and when people move to the inside and the party is outside, I just yell a friendly reminder through the house…”Hey y’all, just a reminder that the party is outside! Never have had a problem. No reason to let it ruin a good party or your day!
