Another mother in law from hell…

Posted on Wed, Nov. 29, 2023 at 05:50 pm

Tell me it’s not me? I’m kind, I buy presents, I praise, I include and yet every mother in law that crosses my path seems to view me like a bug that needs to be crushed. I make $60,000 and pay my own way as a woman very much so, yet my MIL treats me like I sponge off her son. She will only thank him for presents. She will always only refer to our home as his. She doesn’t realise that the presents she gets are my idea… and I could handle all of that until… just recently… my husband has decided to take her side. We bought a holiday home, and she thanked only him for being allowed to go… I stood feeling like a passenger in my own marriage or like a guest in my own home… she stuck the knife in and twisted, she msgd my husband to tell him she felt like I’m not including her/pushing her out of the holiday home. I’ve done no so thing. It’s like she’s vying to be the woman of the house and push me out of it. She does love it and see it as hers, but the way she is making me feel like a temporary fixture in my own life is causing me so much stress. I think she has an unhealthy attachment to my husband. I’m not sure I can take much more. Basically, she has zero respect for me as an individual, my contributions to our life, or me as his partner. I feel so pushed out, so alone, and so fed up in the run up to Christmas. How do I sit across the Christmas table feeling so unwanted? I’m tired and hurt because this is mother in law number 3 who has been like this. It’s taken 3 years before I’ve seen this side to her, which makes it all the more heartbreaking tbh. When a man won’t choose his wife over creating a healthy respectful boundary with him mum… it’s horrific. I don’t want to fuck him and give him what he wants in life only to be treated like a piece of shit by them both. Feel so down.

Facebook Stalker

Posted on Mon, Nov. 27, 2023 at 05:05 pm

MIL & I haven't spoken for over 20 years. Long before FB was a thing.

about 10 years ago, one of her 'helpful' carers showed her the joys of the internet and so the stalking began.

She was blocked instantly, she then lost that account and created another.... and was blocked.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

She's stopped sending me friend requests but every so often I search her name and block new accounts.

I checked recently, I have over 10 accounts in her name in my block list.

I'm almost impressed.

It's Still Quiet

Posted on Fri, Nov. 17, 2023 at 12:02 am

MIL, this is the longest stretch of time that you've been quiet. I imagine that you're quite busy plotting how to deal with BIL and his slutty girlfriend and how they both just suck the oxygen out of any room that they are in. They're going to make Christmas a real treat. I wonder how you're planning to handle that this year. I don't think you can repeat the spectacle you pulled last Christmas.

Decisions, decisions. Do you avoid seeing them on Christmas, or do you plan how to upstage their antics with your own? I suppose given those two self-absorbed yahoos, I'm looking pretty good right now, eh?

I don't wanna

Posted on Wed, Nov. 15, 2023 at 03:03 am

Come for the turkey, stay for the insults, pettiness, and eye rolls! Lets all compare how much time we get off for vacation during Thanksgiving week - I really truly care what others do with their free time and how much of it they get! Lets compare how many days we can work from home and who has the least commute! Lets all compare how we are doing in our careers and say hmmmmm when the other person talks. Lets all compare what vacations we all went on this year and how we can one up each other - because whatever we do in our family, you have to do as well to compete with us! If we get a washing machine, you need to get a dryer! If you spend time on a holiday with mom, that means we do too! Lets all compare our adult cousins, their hopes and dreams, and lets share our value judgements on how successful we think they should be. At 21 you gotta have it all figured out, you know? Lets all compare home projects! I bet we can do a more extensive home project than you can with less money!!! Lets finish the dinner on a lighter note, let's compare books, tv, podcasts, a little comparison of politics - who knows more??? Who is worth more as a human being because they know more??

Daughter trumps DIL

Posted on Tue, Nov. 14, 2023 at 12:09 am

In all the years that I’ve known you, there’s never been a break from your abuse. I took every ounce of crap you could fling at me in order to have peace with my brother. In spite of all the efforts you made to make us fight, we never did.

Now that he’s gone we are no longer related. Stop playing the world’s smallest victim violin about his share. You have no claim.
I’m the sole beneficiary.
You get nothing.

Did your kids pay their respects when their grandmother died? If they had, there would have been no living with you.
They chose.
Now they get nothing too.

Slander my deceased parents all you like. Shriek and carry on, it changes nothing.
Did you really think they would put anyone above their only daughter?

You get nothing. They get nothing.
I got it all.
Glad it’s killing you.

I don't want to see you

Posted on Mon, Nov. 13, 2023 at 04:20 am

You're just poison. I wish being around you didn't cost me my peace. I wish you didn't spend your time campaigning against me. We could be having good times together but you insist on this kind of garbage behavior. So much church and so little kindness.

Too Quiet

Posted on Mon, Nov. 06, 2023 at 04:20 am

I know you're planning something. Whenever it's this quiet it means you're saving up for some big, stupid moment. You think it'll be a surprise and I'm sure you're rubbing your hands together with glee over it. I'm guessing you're holding out for a holiday treat of some kind. You just love making some kind of scene during holidays.

I won't be making any scenes. I have too much class for that sort of immature BS. I know it bothers you that some of your adult children and their partners might steal some spotlight from you. I find that thought so very satisfying. I personally don't pay any attention to them but I know it drives you crazy. I wonder what they'll bring to the table this year that will get under your skin. I quiver with anticipation!

I Hate the Holidays

Posted on Sun, Nov. 05, 2023 at 12:12 pm

I'm able to avoid my sister-in-law and her jackass husband during the year except during the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas).

She's a busy-body, gossip and intrusive. She literally puts a dollar amount on everything and steers most conversations towards money. He becomes a drunken idiot who makes passes at me and talks smack about my family. He is also intrusive. We have nothing in common. Minutes feel like hours when they're around. I despise these people.

MIL it's adorable that you think your fake fascade fools us. My husband for half a second thought that suddenly you care but I reminded him of the many times you've pretended to care only to find a way to be insulting. It's always around the holidays because that's your favorite time of year to pull your crap.

I think you'll be surprised to discover that you aren't the only one who thinks ahead for the holidays. I'm quite looking forward to this particular one and hoping it will be the start of new traditions.
