Shows up-no notice!

Posted on Tue, Dec. 12, 2017 at 10:48 am

I can’t stand them one bit anyways, but when’s the in-laws show up with no f***ifngnotice (other than a text 2 hours bf showing up, or the doorbell-SERIOUSLY), even YOUR SON had had enough. Who the hell does this?! Let me add they live 2 HOURS away and get upset if we “can’t make time to see them.” Glad we have a split level-easy to hide! (We seriously did the last time!) To you all struggling say “F it” and your life will be so much better! Trust me!

Keep quiet!

Posted on Tue, Dec. 12, 2017 at 10:10 am

Ex MIL nags at me as if she was still my MIL.. Lol
Listen you old hag, I'm not married to your son anymore, I don't have to listen to anything you say, even less when your loser son doesn't pay the kids' school and child support.
I'm doing the best I can to provide for the children while you and your dumbass son sit on your fat asses. You deserve each other. That's why I dumped that momma's boy of yours. Be greatful I allow you to see the kids and keep quiet

Can't escape

Posted on Tue, Dec. 12, 2017 at 09:19 am

When we talk about our in-laws, many of us know that our spouse is really responsible for a lot of the shit that happens (or doesn't happen). I turned myself inside out trying to please my husband's family. Every family event they would tell us they never see us anymore (like, even when we had just seen them). I can't think of an event that we didn't go to, and I always made sure to talk to everyone, even when all they wanted to talk about was money and their own achievements. I organized activities with my nieces and nephews, like apple picking and going to museums and parks. They continue to treat us as though we never show up to family events and say "We never see you." I have never been invited to my sister-in-law's house for dinner. When the kids were little, we'd get bagels and come over for an hour or so, just to spend some time playing with them. We offered to babysit but were rebuffed. I wondered what it would be like for our kids. My MIL knew before I did that I wouldn't end up having them because my husband is spineless and wouldn't stand up to her. They don't want "my kind" in the family. No one actually said that, though my MIL did say she felt sorry for people like me and my husband because they can never have children because of their different backgrounds. I thought she was crazy. Sure enough, my husband kept avoiding the subject of children. I thought since he was such a nice man that I should just be happy I found someone to share my life with. But now that I am in the worst period of my life, with one immediate family member dying and another recently passed, he goes about his business like nothing. I have not had one word from his family about my situation. I sit curled up in a ball crying and my husband is so emotionally unavailable (or rather everything is used up on his mother) that he just walks around the house making himself a sandwich as if I were not even there. I would be better off alone. I wish I had left years ago and given myself the life I deserve.

The pretencious mil

Posted on Tue, Dec. 12, 2017 at 07:34 am

Well my MIL started being rude to me on my wedding day; because she felt I made her son spend alot on the wedding. When she came to visit us she would constantly remind me of how much money the family spent me (wedding).but when people are around us she would be really nice to me😕 wait until we are alone. Two months ago she badged into my room shouting at me for moving the shampoos from the guest bathroom. That witch just went to another level, that wasn't the end of her abusiveness to me. She would call saying her son doesn't call her often ever since he married me.
I had had enough of he do I told her son and unfortunately he didn't do anything about it. I told my family about her and am happy after talking to her she and me do not even talk with each other.good riddance MIL I hope I don't see ur face and long teeth anytime soon.

You’re Welcome

All gifts we once sent to extended, entitled family are finished. No more gift baskets, no more toys for first cousins twice removed. It is much more satisfying and less stressful to buy gifts for Toys for Tots and Be a Santa to a Senior Citizen programs.

Mean girls!

Posted on Tue, Dec. 12, 2017 at 03:39 am

My in-laws are mean girls, starting with mother in law who uses her money to get her greedy 3 daughters to kiss ass. They are jealous of everyone and constantly back stab- even eachother. For 30 years I have sat through Christmas get togethers while they ignore me, never asked me even my phone number in 30 years! This has carried on to my children now in their 20s and they don't like them. My husband is the most successful of the family and our children are too, they can't stand it to be happy for us they are just evil. They go from one family member to the next pointing out all their flaws its disgusting. Mil favorite thing is to hear something in confidence then add drama and tell everyone, no one gets along because of this. All three sisters live within a couple blocks of mil competing to get more inheritance than the next. We stay away and husband hates gossip. One of the sisters has suddenly become terminally ill and since she usually held Christmas get together because mil is too old - my husband asked me to host this year giving them a place to celebrate Christmas. I sent out my invite on thanksgiving and have had not one RSVP or reply. So rude, less than two weeks away and they can't email a reply if they are coming or not. My daughter suggested I send out a polite cancellation, my husband and I each own our own businesses and work full time none of my in-laws are working. Hate them and struggling to find compassion since they have never been nice to me.

Crappy Christmas Gift

Posted on Mon, Dec. 11, 2017 at 06:33 pm

One year for Christmas, PIL gave their son an expensive leather coat. Price tag still attached, so their son could be forever, and I mean FOREVER, grateful. I open my gift. It was a professional photo of hateful, spiteful, wedding ruining FIL and MIL. What do you say to that? I said nothing, which pissed them and husband off. What did they expect? Fortunately, they are no longer my problem.

Stupid FIL

Posted on Mon, Dec. 11, 2017 at 01:18 pm

The last time I saw my FIL he kicked my dh, my 5 year old, and me out of his car on the side of the highway. There was traffic and he got upset and decided it was our fault and told us to get out. Now, 5 months later, I am just supposed to forget it ever happened. No apology, no mention of his behavior, he says it never happened. That we volunteered to get out of the car. He's obviously mentally unstable.
My MIL believes everything that comes out of his mouth. She's suffers from some sort of Stockholm syndrome.
I'm at wits ends. This isn't the first time he's gone crazy. Over the years he's called my dh a loser, demanded I change my child's name and refused to see her for 6 months, called me names, told us we're terrible people and parents....it goes on and on.
If my parents ever behaved in such a way, I would cut ties with them, but my dear husband just makes excuses for him. "He's sick" "He's old" blah blah blah. If it wasn't for the 7 months a year he lives far far away I would have pulled out all my hair and ran away screaming.

So, we hardly make ends meet, lots of family involved reasons but not the point today, My husband who my mother directed me to marry, her exact words ...."an older man with a high school diploma"....whatever done, doesnt like to spread his money. I nag him to pay the bills and yes if his paycheck us $250 a week and the bills are $500 i DO take his WHOLE CHECK to pay bills. My Mom and MIL think working man should have plenty of money in his pocket for beer and his amusement. Once i took his debit card out of his wallet and paid the electric bill, over the phone. It was due to be cut off in an hour. His Mom told him to call the police. The police told me even though we were legally married i couldnt use his debit card without his permission and next time i would be charged with theft. So yes i nag and nag and nag him to the penny because even the police said his money is his. He and our mothers tell people all over town i take all hus money, yada,yada, yada. A couple of months ago his mother cornered me and told me i need to quit stealing his money and let him keep it to do what he wants too with it, and my mother told me to quit nagging him and let him take care of the finances like a man is supposed to. I bring home less than $100 a week so i have been paying the water, po, some on the electric and basic needs. I let him take complete control, i quit nagging, i gave up. I let him CONTROL his money and guess what? HE QUIT PAYING THE BILLS AND MOTHER AND MOTHER IN LAW SOMEHOW THINK ITS MY FAULT! I did EXACTLY what they said, things have been great, we quit fighting over money, he has been acting like a drunk college kid, he is sooo happy now! SOMEHOW, all our bills except what i have paid are cut off or several months behind, and it's MY FAULT SOMEHOW
