Thank you Monster in Law

Posted on Tue, Oct. 06, 2015 at 04:58 am

Thank you for opening your home to us, telling us not to worry about paying rent so that we could get back on our feet only to talk crap about us to friends and family every opportunity you got.

Thank you for telling people my kids were destructive and unrully causing us to be uninvited to family functions.

Thank you for undermining me very time I tried disciplining my children.

Thank you for teaching my children to lie to me when you blatantly allowed them to do things or eat crap good we specifically asked you not to.

Thank you for demanding that we start paying $600 rent when I was already doing all the cooking, cleaning, mowing, buying groceries for the whole household and working fulltime, while you sat on your fat lazy ass doing nothing all day, while my kids were in daycare. 

Thank you for making us feel like an imposition even though I used my own money to remodel your bathroom and basement bedroom.

Thank you for talking crap about my husband, YOUR SON all the time so that my 2 and 4 year old sons wanted to know why you hated their daddy and said he was lazy, when he was going to school full time for his Engineering degree.

Thank you for being so selfish and treating your husband so crappy that my kids ask why you are so mean to Grandpa.

Thank you for making us feel so unwelcome in your home that we had to get out before things got bad and were forced to move into apartment that did not allow pets.

Thank you for telling us our dog could not stay at your house until we found another place, forcing us to give away our first family pet.

Thank you for denying your sons the joy of dog ownership only to get a dog now and letting it be so important that you don't attend any of your grandsons events because dog has a special schedule.

Thank you for making sure that everone on Facebook knows every little detail of your dog's life not excluding potty habits, posting nothing about your only grandsons since the day you got the dog, 3 years ago.

Thank you for not inviting your grandsons over to stay the night anymore because they occassionally want to play on your computer which limits your time to play Candy Crush.

Thank you for offering financial advice freely, but I think we'll pass - it's probably not wise to put stock in the advice of a 3 time bankruptcy filer.

Thank you for consistently inviting yourselves to dinner and bringing your dog who seems to think my house is a yard where she can freely relieve herself of all bodily waste.

Thank you for calling 5 times a day and sending psychotic texts when I can't answer because I'm working.

Thank you for not doing any packing yourself so that when it came time for you to move from first floor to second floor, your son, grandsons and I had to do everything while you sat in a lawn chair watching and Grandpa was unable to help because he just had a heart attack.

Thank you for opening my eyes to how lazy, self absorbed and nasty some people can be. I can't believe my husband came from you. Its amazing how he overcame the horrible example you set and became one of the most wonderful man that I know.

So sick of my in laws

Posted on Tue, Oct. 06, 2015 at 04:27 am

This is so cool. I get to share my misery anonymously... ok. Same old same old. Hate my in laws, specially the psycho mom but i hate them all... she treats my husband like a little child. He sees her like an angel from heaven who can do no wrong. I'm sick and tired of that person interfering in my life, not respecting me, diminishing me, i wish i didn't have to deal with her and his siblings, they have a sick relationship. Sometimes i think about leaving my husband so i never have to see those people again. I can't stand them. They are a nightmare and they're planning to come spend at least a month in my house visiting in december and i'm planning to rent a room somewhere far from them. I'll have to leave them my house all to themselves, but i prefer that than staying and dealing with their ugly personalities for so long...

Front porch entertainment

Posted on Tue, Oct. 06, 2015 at 02:51 am

Update from the one who has many inlaws in the neighborhood including across the street

One of them watches for daughters boyfriend car to pull into our driveway. Then, she stands outside and stares at them when they kiss quickly goodnight. She yells out to the others when my daughter is on the porch about her location.

It is really sad and strange. Why the obsession?

Also, the bus stop is in front of my house for school. We have another Inlaw who drives from next store to pick up their child! Then, he speeds up and tries to impress others with his loud engine. He is so obnoxious.

The grandparents of the school aged children run late picking up the children next store who live next store to the bus stop. The kids point to our house when no one is there to pick them up when bus driver asks them where other relatives they can go to. I was in my living room one time and happened to look up to see the children pointing at our house. I fear the parents will attempt to use us for emergency or backup care.

We raised our own children and they can do the same.

His parents also drive verses walk next door.

They all honk when they pass each other's houses.

The end

Get it Together

Posted on Mon, Oct. 05, 2015 at 10:03 pm

My MIL is so bad with money it's ridiculous. She goes out to eat every single day ans splurges on things she doesn't need. When it's time to pay bills she borrows money from my BILs who are teenagers and are trying to save money so they can move out and go to college. Then she will sit back and tell me and dh that she is the most financially competent person on the planet and we should take advice from her. I don't want advice from a woman who goes out to eat three meals a day, but then has to borrow money from her son's (who are working part time at minimum wage, one has two jobs) to pay the electric bill that she "forgot" to pay and had somehow spent all of her paycheck on fast food and things for herself. Did I mention that mil makes 17 and hour and gets 2,000 a month in alimony from ex-fil? I am truly worried that my bil's will never get out of there.

When step mil dies...
Oh what a happy day! I'm sure DH and me will give each other a high five. He'll b.s. With his worthless father sure to make it seem like he cares, but I'll be doing a fist pump in the background while trying not to make him laugh. We will then promptly go to the liquor store and get ourselves a good bottle of champagne, then do a toast to one less evil witch in the world and dance to our wedding song just to rub it in the old bats face... See, none of you did manage to destroy us and our marriage, too bad so sad. Oh happy day!

When worthless fil dies...
I will try my best to feign sadness for DH so as not to be mean, but secretly I will be doing a fist pump behind his back, then proceed to ask him if we can open a good bottle of red wine (for his self care of course ;) if he's all somber and the mood is complete down I will leave him be to mope while preparing him gently for the blow that he won't be receiving an inheritance from that excuse for a man to prevent him from being further hurt. Them I will go out with my sister and we will celebrate by ordering the most sinful dessert ever!

Watch who you call ''My' grandparents

Posted on Mon, Oct. 05, 2015 at 01:17 pm

The more I reflect on it the more unbelievable I think you behaved last Friday 'aunt IL.' At first I felt sympathy for you because I know anyone in your position would wish their family could work it out, but then you took it too far. I mistook you for a reasonable person who had the ability to be somewhat objective, but again I was wrong when it comes To you and your messed up family.
You are just so manipulative and if I ever wanted to believe you kind of cared about me and had some compassion now I certainly don't! I don't even believe anymore that you genuinely care about the wellbeing of your nephew (my DH) when it comes to your screwed up and narcissistic brother (FIL). Anything to enable him and make life 'easier' on him even if it means re-victimizing us. Hell no!

And FYI... You can stop manipulating me into coming to your nervy gathering by calling your parents MY grandparents. Who the hell do you think you are? Although I do not wish your parents any ill will I'm not a fool. I know they don't have my back. I hardly ever see them. Heck, they are by the way acquaintances at best! I will continue to treat them with decency and respect because they aren't bad people like FIL but that doesn't make them MY grandparents you nervy lady. I had a grandmother, yeah, remember the one who died last November? None of you gave a shit. No condolences cards or even a lousy email. When I did tell you about her funeral to your face you didn't even attempt to at least feign interest to be polite. Just a 'that's too bad' and that was the end of that. But now these relative strangers are MY grandparents?! And I owe all you guys something. Lady, I don't even plan to attend their funerals. Nothing personal but if it means being in a group of haters who will only cause memory grief frankly they don't mean that much to me. Hiwever, unlike you I WILL send a condolence card, maybe even a flower arrangement to show my respects which is more than any of you did for me when my grandma died!

Revenge is sweet!

Posted on Mon, Oct. 05, 2015 at 12:47 pm

ESIL screwed over DH in the family because she is a selfish miserable bitch. DH now has the upper hand and is taking revenge by not visiting or sending gifts, etc. This is killing ESIL as she wants her daughter to live out of our pockets for her kids. Karma is playing itself out now. We have no feelings for people who have treated us so unfairly and badly in the family. WE DO NOT OWE THEM ANYTHING CONTRARY TO WHAT THEY THINK. DH's attitude is they should F Off and leave him alone! I agree.

Ex SIL in town

Posted on Mon, Oct. 05, 2015 at 12:46 pm

EX SIL moved to a different state. She does come back to visit family when she is on vacation. I'm friends with her brother on FB. He sent me a request and I accepted. I never ask him about her. It is none of my business and I could care less. I was out with my sister this weekend. We ate at a local restaurant and she was there with her brother and I guess some friends of her brother. The reason I say that is because she was talking about being married before and not having any kids. Talked about her Dad and her brother not married and stuff like that. She was talking so loud it was hard not to hear. I don't think she even realized we were sitting a few tables away from her. Her brother saw us and smiled but didn't tell her (I don't think). I checked FB that evening to see if her brother was still friends with me. He is, but now I don't see any likes or comments from her on his page. I use to. I guess she added me to her block list. I guess she found out we were in the restaurant when she was there. LOL!!

Very Clever ILs... underhanded to the core!

Posted on Mon, Oct. 05, 2015 at 12:02 pm

I'm speaking to you directly ex-FIL and monster of an ex step-MIL who are certainly the most pathetic out of the bunch. I know this one is all on you for various reasons.

YOU ex-FIL and ex-Stepmil have sat on your prideful arses for well over 2 years now not even caring enough to attempt to resolve anything even for DHs and our children's sake!!DH has been very forthcoming with you about the problems which you continue to ignore. You have dicked around with me even after we cut you off, can't even call DH to wish him a merry Christmas --DH has to do basically ALL of the reaching out with you sorry arses-- and then you just expect that we would show up for Thanksgiving after all of these years among a group of people who don't wish us well and/or genuinely don't have our best interests at heart, refuse to apologize or show any remorse whatsoever for their past out of control behavior, and would probably still take any opportunity to screw with us again when everyone's not looking! You are sick and twisted, but clever, I must admit.

I guess since all of this time has past and you haven't made any effort to resolve things or even admit to your part, people might finally be wising up to your character and be putting pressure on you now to resolve it, which would mean taking some RESPONSIBILITY for your twisted ways and WORKING on being better people. Can't have that now. And you saying "sorry??" Never! How out of the question. You've never said sorry in your lives, even before this situation.

So, instead you pretend with everyone like you just want to 'forgive and forget' and 'start over' to make yourselves look like you are so loving to everyone else. And you know why we know it's b.s.? Because 1) people who hurt other people like you and just brush it off with terms like 'forgive and forget' have a nerve because it's a scapegoat. Forcing people to pretend like it never happened isn't in any way sincere and is just a way for you to get off the hook so you don't have to face up to it. and 2) If you even do have the nerve to demand that we forgive you and start over, why are you letting DH's aunt speak for you? If you were even sincere about that, don't you have a phone? Don't you have text or email? Why not make every multiple effort to send the message someway yourself? You think if it comes from DH's aunt it's going to make us feel sorry for you? You're just using her as a pawn so that you can turn her and everyone else who is probably questioning you now against us just because we aren't falling for your insincere nonsense! And she's an idiot for falling for it but that's in another post.

Seriously, I feel like I've fallen into the twighlight zone. I just can't believe I married into a bunch of retards like this. They are completely incapable of reason, empathy or common sense, even the supposedly more 'decent' extended in laws. They only care about themselves and their family and could care less how it affects my health and wellbeing, the wellbeing of their nephew's marriage and even the impact it might have on the children!! I'm sure if DH and I were to divorce over this (we're seeking marriage counselling right now) and our children had problems because of a broken home these losers would just shrug, probably smile even. They don't care about us, just themselves and their image of a fake family! All so we can sit down to some dry-ass turkey, while I drink my angst away in an environment that I have no reason to believe would be any less dysfunctional. Real healthy!
