Your story is starting to not make sense.

You drove her back to the airport? Put her on Greyhound?

Around here, no "rich man's wife" would step foot on a Greyhound bus.

"I sent a thank you email back for the flowers saying that I was really sorry that I ruined her trip, and she ignored the email. At first I guess I was kind of shell shocked about her behavior."

I don't know why you apologized for "ruining" her trip.

My apologies for the confusion.

She flew out to my city on Thursday.

No, you're not being childish for being upset with her.

At least now you know the true her.

I don't think you are overreacting at all. This sounds a lot like my former best friend. She was a user and negative. I also went on a trip with a friend once to Disney World, and she sulked and cried if we didn't make all her list of rides, although she goes every year. It was annoying. I was 25 and she was 24. Anyways, I would be mad too. My ex-best friend dropped out of me from a trip the day before, after paying airfare, tickets for the soap event, and she bailed because she has mental issues. I would honestly just get rid of her. You don't need toxic people in your life. You welcomed her as a guest in your home, treated her to lunch while you worked, and there was no reason she couldn't have sightseed on her own. She sounds spoilt too, IMO. I would just let her go. You don't need a user like that in your life. I've been there, and you deserve better, than to be treated like a doormat. Hope this works out for you!

I didn't say you were being childish for being upset, but that it was childish to apologize for "ruining" her trip when you obviously didn't feel any actual guilt at all and took some satisfaction in making her take the bus that she didn't want to take. If you're upset with her, which is justifiable, then just tell her and don't put up with her own childish treatment of you. What's childish is to sit at home and pretend to be sorry while you're further steaming and building up resentment.
