I Hate My Inlaws!

BEYOND BELATED

So, MIL and FIL are at our place for pizza. Within seconds of arriving, MIL LOUDLY asks our son if he received the birthday card she sent him (his birthday was two months prior to this.). Our son tells her he didn't get it.

MIL glares directly at me (while DH gets to sit back & relax) and says "WHERE IS IT?" I told MIL that we didn't get it. She again asks in her nasty man voice "WHEEERE IS IT?" I told MIL that I save all of my kids' birthday cards. I go get the most recent stack of cards to show her that her card isn't there. She says "It had MONEY in it.", insinuating that I pitched the birthday card and went on a massive $20 shopping spree.

I ask her when she mailed it. She rudely huffs "Two days ago". Instead of slapping her, I told my son to look in the mailbox to see if the card was there. The card was in the mailbox.

MIL, sorry I'm not the deceitful thief you tried to frame me to be. Clearly you put a lot of thought into that one. Instead of mailing our son's birthday card to him on his actual birthday two months ago, you waited and mailed it just two days before you knew you would be performing your courtroom theatrics at our house.
