I've talked to SO about the situation at hand.
The robotic stepford child beheaviour continues...GRRRR
SO and I are at a cross-roads. I suggested that maybe we be affectionate to try to break the cold behaviour that they're showing and he's all down for that, and he's also alright with being poliet back, but he does not want to be "nice" to be cold, but instead to get a reaction out of them.
When would be the right time for SO to have the "enough is enough" conversation?(today is thanks-giving), or should be just "play along" to get a reaction out of them and not talk to them about it
Is there anything else we should do to try to get a reaction out of them?? maybe even take them out seperatley, and just confront them???
They already "one upped" SO. Ss wanted to go to the scientific exhibiton, so he went with his friends(friends mom picked him up and drove him back), and Sd also went her friends to that middle eastern restuarant. They both asked for permission. Again, "Thank you for letting us go, we are grateful" BS. They already before hand figured out transporation. Since it was the opening day for the exhibition- admission was free, and sd had paid for herself at the restaurant- both of them get an allowance from BM (2 dollars/day), and they know how to save, so they both have over 600$ saved(each).
