How to invite someone without actually inviting them

By Anonymous - 03/08/2021 07:59 - Denmark - Copenhagen

Today, my parents asked me if I was sure I didn't want to join them on a family trip tomorrow with my sister. I was never invited, and unlike the rest of the family, I have a full-time job where I can't just take days off with no warning. This is how they announce most "family trips" to me. FML

Communicate with them. Ask them to give you more warning so you can plan ahead and see if you can take off work and go. Or you can harbor resentment and let it impact your stress levels for the rest of your life. Don’t get me wrong, they definitely suck for this and are inconsiderate. But if you want the actual option to go in the future, speak up.

Of course you can. You live in the happiest country on Earth. Surely, it's hygge to take spontaneous vacations.
