I wish...

Posted on Fri, Sep. 15, 2017 at 09:20 pm

I wish that you all would move to another country or die. I wish I didn't feel this way but you all have done so much damage that I will never forgive you ever. Thanks for over 12 years of pure hell.

Fat Lady Sings

Posted on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017 at 11:52 pm

Yes, it's officially over. SIL has opened her big mouth to sing, if that's what you want to call it, but it sounds more like another day in the pasture to me.

New Study

Posted on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017 at 11:24 pm

So there's a new study that just came out which proved that Grandparents live longer when they help babysit, and therefore are in their grandchildren's lives. Just one more reason to keep my kids away from MIL and FIL!

MIL, I almost whooped your a$$ today.

Posted on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017 at 09:40 pm

My alcoholic husband (highly successful and functioning) is on another bender. Today he passed out twice, fell down and hit his head on the nightstand and our concrete floor, and then fell down outside and fell face-first into our koi pond. His face was down in that nasty water and he couldn't reposition his body to breathe. I had to lift his head out of the water, but I couldn't lift his dead weight out. (He was conscious)

I call my FIL for help. 2 weeks ago hubby calls him and unloads on how bad his drinking is, how f-ed up he is, etc. Well...he was sober for 9 days and then went back to binging. Today he went to a church breakfast and then proceeded to drink vodka until lunch when he passed out the first time.

ANYYYYWAYS...FIL comes over to help get DH out of the pond and brings his bitch wife. She proceeds to tell me SHE WILL BE THE ONE TO GET HIM UP, **NOT ME**. I told her to get the fuck out of my house talking like that, but she still kept causing a scene and being a c**t to me in general.

Now...my daughter (14) is upstairs. She doesn't need to know that he stepfather is drunk and falling in our pond. Does MIL care? NOOOO! She only cares about her son. I had them take his ass with them. So f-ing fed up with them thinking he's fine and that the problem is all me. So tired of them PERIOD! Oh...and my FIL tells me on the way out that this is HIS SON'S HOUSE! I WILL GET NOTHING WHEN (if) WE DIVORCE!

Oooooooh, FIL!!! I am so scared! You mean I can't have this $120K house in a declining neighborhood where homeless people are starting to roam around? Oh, whatever shall I do!?!?!?!?! And I don't own this house because my name isn't on the deed? So....why isn't YOUR NAME ON THE DEED OF YOUR HOUSE? Oh yeah!!! Because you blew all your money, had to declare bankruptcy, short-sell your "Southern Living" house in that nice neighborhood, and have your brother buy you a house! Mister Big Stuff!!!

Thankfully I am not a gold digger. Your son is going to need all the extra $$ he can get his hands on because rehab is expensive! So are new organs and hospitalizations, which is where he's heading if he doesn't stop drinking himself into the ground.


I am a lady first and foremost, but your attitude towards me all these years and THEN coming here and bitching me out over something YOUR SON IS RESPONSIBLE FOR is unacceptable. If you think he's that great, keep him! You are not welcome in any home that I live in - whether my name is on the deed or not. Either your son will respect that (because he knows what a bitch you are underneath your little "sweet & stupid" act) or he won't. If he doesn't, then I am gone, because if I can't at least have a safe place where I don't have to look at you, see you, or worry about you coming in my home, then what the eff do I have in this marriage?


Ya'll take the cake. Now choke on it.

What in the Tom Fuckery?

Posted on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017 at 08:49 pm

I married into the sorriest group of people who call themselves "family". All they ever do is pit everyone against eachother and the ringleader is dried up old MIL who looks 20yrs older than what she actually is, but has the mind of a teenager. This stupid group of people believe eachothers lies and they get off on causing division and instilling hate in their children, then when shit hits the fan, they huddle up like cowards hiding behind eachothers lies and blaming everyone else. The females in the family backstab one another and hide behind their daughters. MIL talks shit and gossips about her own kids. If only SIL (BIL's wife) was smart enough to see that they use her as a pawn all the time and it was never about her, maybe she wouldn't have gotten herself involved in the conflict between me and MIL. But no, she had to throw herself in it, thinking she would win brownie points, when all they did was put her down and talk about her. I laugh when I think of how pathetic everything played out and just how empty and far from being a "real family" they were/are. I guess when you have a leader like dusty old bag MIL, you have to be the weakest sheep ever. Whoever believes the atrocious lies she and her freak show daughter spread must surely have an IQ of .05! Glad I put a stop to the bullshit long, long ago. I never had the time to waste on foolish people and the fuckery that goes on in their presence. Hope SIL (BIL's wife)knows that psycho MIL and SIL tried to sabotage her side hustle and tell people not to go to her for her products she was selling. When will you wake up? Stop being so simple, SIL. If I were you, I'd stick to my own family because these people eat with you and curse you at the same time. They talk about you and your kids. They have been playing you since day 1! So while you were busy, trying to add fuel to a fire that had nothing to do with you, they were using you to get on their wagon, to create enemies for me. - but the moment I briefly stepped back into the picture to peek my head in, they unleashed a shit storm about you and your daughter. But, there you go, falling for the games and head trips they put you through, feeding lies about me, just so you and your kids can hate me because they know I have no fucks to give about them. In the end, it made you look silly for acting just like them, when they are quick to gossip about you and blame everything on you - how they think you messed up BIL's life. How can anything good come out of being associated with such toxic people like that? I guess when you aren't able to identify the problem, it's because you are a part of it as well. MIL will always be an evil, self-loathing person who gets her kicks out of spreading lies about damn there everyone and SIL needs someone to listen to her delusional lies. Yes, it is pathetic because you weren't smart enough to get away and you let dumb people fool you into hating someone so much, you had to get your kids in on it. Tisk. Tisk. Hopefully, you will one day grow lady-balls to see through the bullshit and stand up to the people who make a mockery of you.

Forgiven but not forgotten

Posted on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017 at 02:23 pm

The IL's put my wife and me through hell for numerous years, wouldn't even attend our wedding. Then suddenly they accepted us and acted like nothing ever happened. I find out from other relatives that this is normal for them and the commit evil deeds then just act like nothing ever happened. They have always been enabled, they NEVER own up to their evil, but know this... I forgive you, but I haven't forgotten your evilness and DO NOT trust you at all!!!

Southern Hillbiily Morons

Posted on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017 at 01:52 pm

When I married my wonderful wife I had no idea how crazy her parents are. First they shunned us and told us both we'd go to hell if we got married because we had both previously been married. It didn't matter to them that both of our ex-spouses had walked out on us and re-married. When my wife asked them if they expected her to be alone for the rest of her life they responded that she was now married to Jesus.
We are devout Christians, but their logic in no way is Christian or biblical. We proceeded to get married, even though they completely shunned us, they didn't even attend our wedding. As our marriage progressed over the next few years I started to understand the "Southern Legalist Christians" aka hillbillies more and more. I honestly thought the stereotype hillbilly was more folklore or a bygone era depicted in movies like 'O brother Where Art Though'. Coming from a Midwestern heritage I was ignorant to these "mountain folk" and didn't think anyone this ignorant still existed. But, to my dismay here they were.
They are the no drinking, no gambling no doing anything that I don't want you to do people. When asked for biblical text backing their ways you would have thought I had slapped their mama r something... How dare anyone question these twits. Then the problems started to come forward... the proverbial elephant in the room. Family members started telling me about the evil the in-laws had done over the years, they told me just to ignore them and go on with life. I said that is just enabling them and why didn't anyone ever address the evil they had spewed over the years. They had just felt it easier to stay away rather than to confront the situation...
Once again these "super-Christians" were biblically illiterate, the bible says you should start by confronting the person with whom you have an issue and then escalate from there. These are the Pentecostal hillbillies who scream and shout and run around like they're possessed and say Catholics and Lutherans are doomed... hmmm... yea. Well, 3.5 years into our marriage the in-laws suddenly greeted me like I was the greatest thing on earth. We were making our obligatory Christmas visit - stressful - and they suddenly came out hugging me and saying how much they loved me and how glad they were to see us?!!! It was quite shocking to my wife and me. They had controlled my wife, her entire life, by withholding their affection or approval to manipulate her to do what they wanted. She was their southern show-doll her entire life - even in adulthood she would turn into a 5-year old around them. When we married she broke that control - for a while - my assumption was that their unexpected turn was that they figured the shunning wouldn't work so they would try a new tactic. It has worked to a certain extent, my wife croons over them like they're the best parents ever. I think that she has developed a fantasy childhood and vision of her parents to compensate for their mental sickness.
They are pure white-trash hillbillies straight out of the Appalachian mountains, I do not say that to be hateful or ugly - it's just the truth.
I detest having to be around them, but I do it for my wife's sake. It just gets disgusting listening to my wife rambling about their greatness and how wonderful they are... I truly think she does it trying to convince others or maybe just to make her feel better. I know no family is perfect, but these southern hillbilly whackos are pathetic. My wife openly questions why no nieces, nephews, grandchildren etc. ever visit them... hmmm I can't imagine why?!!! these legalist morons actually went to their granddaughters home at 11:00 to tell her she was going to hell because she had stopped breastfeeding!!! The poor girls milk had dried up!!! This is just the tip of the iceberg...
The rest of the family is pretty cool, even normal... there are a few cases of the cultish Pentecostal stuff, but otherwise just like any other family they are the circus without the tent.
Oh well, I guess we all have some horror to deal with, mine are just two Georgia hillbillies.

It's not me...it's you...

Posted on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017 at 11:13 am

My DH and I do not have a perfect relationship. At all. We fight plenty. We have vastly different views and goals.

But guess what, even when he and I are having struggles, he doesn't call you!!

He doesn't like you. Either of you. He wants nothing to do with you and it has nothing to do with me!

You suck. He never mentions you. Your numbers are listed in his phone as "my whore mother" and "the bas*ard"-I'm not joking.

This isn't even the dumbest thing she's done...

Posted on Thu, Sep. 14, 2017 at 12:04 am

My idiot of a MIL booked a $2500 non-refundable 8 person cabin for next year when there are 12 of us. Out of curiousity, I emailed the owner and asked if it's possible to bring air mattresses to accommodate 4 extra people- and she said "No, sorry. 8 people staying there is the absolute maximum." AND THE DARWIN AWARD GOES TO......
