C*bershrink is me ! Yesterday afternoon, stuck for a time at a mall, I popped into a Telkom store and logged in to try to respond to some messages while waiting, but couldn't enter via my usual Experts admin area. But for some strange reason, thopugh I wrote a BRILLIANT response to this one, the system absolkutely refused to post it. And now I have forgotten the brilliant answer, so this one will have to do.
How sad that these silly and vain people feel proud of "never apologising". But if there are other and less silly family members at the gathering, why not go along and talk with them, instead ? Otherwise, by staying away, you are giving poweer to the nasty few, and letting them control you and keep you away.
Don't expect them to apologise --- waiting or apologies from that sort of person is a waste of time. Just make them unimportant to you. And if they gove any further offense, cut them off from their excuse by saying something like " I know you find it awfully difficult to apologise, for some strange reason, so I won't expect one from you. Just try not to do this again", and then move on
