What is the motivation behind my sister lying about the number of time she calls our parents?
Yesterday, my hubbie and I took my parents to my nephew's birthday party, (my nephew is 35, married, and has a child) my sister 'did' call them, and invited them to. She sent me a text, informing me 'where' and 'what time' . My parents don't drive, and this happened to be at a local Chinese buffet, which happens to be my nephew's favorite restaurant. Normally, everyone pays for their own bill. It's just an opportunity for everyone to be together, without my sister having to cook. It's an ordeal to take my parents anywhere. My mom can't hardly walk any distance, without assistence, due to degeneration in her spine, her bad knees, and she's breathless ON oxygen. She has a cart with a seat that she uses to go any distance. We had her sit on the seat of it, after getting her in the restaurant, and my hubbie pulled her to the room, that was reserved. In the meantime, I'm helping my Dad, who's using his cane, holding on my shoulder with his other hand, while I'm carrying his cushion, he sits on. No one offers to help us except my daughter ( around 20 people there). All my hubbie and I get done doing is running back and forth, carrying food to my parents. My sister, at some point has this side conversation with my hubbie, telling him, that she calls them all the time, and they seem 'out of it' , they don't remember things she's told them. I know she doesn't call them, 'cuz I'm with them almost All the time, and if she calls them, they tell me, because it's a rare happening. It makes me wonder what her motivation is behind lying about this. She barely even talked to me and I don't even LIKE Chinese food! Is this a hint that she's trying to imply that their incompetent?
