Why don't family give a shit?

You would think that with as many kids and grandkids as my dad has within 5 miles of his house, and with the hints and requests he has dropped or had dropped for him, that SOMEONE would visit with him and spend some time talking to him.

Instead, two weeks ago after a week without visitors he had me call one of my sibs and call them on having promised to take him to an air show. She came and took him to the air show, and has not visited since.

What is so hard about a 5 minute phone call to say "hi"? Even my friends that my dad has never met have gone to that trouble to brighten his day more than his own kids and grandkids ever have. It really hurts him and is pissing me off.
