A mother has shared her frustration with a family member who is always on the phone when she visits. The woman says she is “very rude” and took to Mumsnet to share her anger ahead of family members’ next visit to the family.

Writing on the forum, she put: “I have a relative who does not work, has no commitments with his time, has no husband/partner or children, lives alone and has all the time in the world to talk to anyone.” she likes it. But nevertheless, every time she comes to visit us for dinner or to spend a few hours, that is already really difficult to plan due to our commitments.

“She always has someone calling her and she doesn’t think twice before saying ‘Oh, can I call you back?’ person because of the background noise that is going on in my busy house, my children, my husband and my dogs.

“It annoys me so much! She is due to come in a few days and she texted me to arrange the times and she said oh…(person)…she’ll call me while I’m on yours. I hope she’s okay.

“Why!!!! Why can’t he talk to whoever he is on his own time? I find it incredibly rude of you to listen to us not being on your phone. Arghhhhhh.”

The woman later revealed to users that the family member is her aunt in her 50s. Mumsnet users responded in the comments by giving the woman some advice. One user said: “Just stop inviting her. Problem solved.”
