No Dog in This Fight

Posted on | May 27, 2011 | Comments Off on No Dog in This Fight

Dear Short Answers:
My parents are very unsophisticated people who are quite uncomfortable in “high class” places. They don’t have the right clothes and never seem to know the right things to say. The problem is that my sister (who has done very well for herself) insists on inviting them to fancy dinners and taking them to luxury resorts for vacations. They have great anxiety before they go and I doubt they have a good time. How do I get my sister to stop doing this to them? They would much rather go to a simple dinner or Disneyland, for goodness sake.

Dear CS:
This is between your sister and your parents. We find it hard to imagine how commentary from you is anything but “beside the point” and likely to draw fire.
