I Shall Make You Wait For A Change.

Posted on Tue, Jul. 22, 2014 at 07:14 am

Now you know how it feels to be in a position where you feel as if you are having to tow the line as you are an outsider to the family, not nice is it. It usually is the case thought isn't it, when you turn the tables and dish out a little of what's been forced on you. It's finally sinking in that two can play that game and you can't complain when it was you and your imbecile of a husband who set the rules in the first place. You will have to wait, you will have to wonder about what's going on, and feel rejected. Enjoy the game you created...

Poisonous MIL

Posted on Tue, Jul. 22, 2014 at 04:50 am

I hate my husband's mother especially. She never has a good word to say about anyone (even her own daughter!?!!!) yet she'll pretend to be a harmless old lady to peoples faces. She has psychologically abused my husband since his childhood, poisoning him and his siblings about their father. She has turned my husband against his own sister, bitching constantly about her. By far, the worst is when she told my husband someone else was his real dad (we did the dates and the maths don't add up- she insists she never cheated in her ex husband yet the maths tell a different story if she's telling the truth. She also told my son that their dad wanted her to abort his sister, I mean, what good is there in telling him this!?!!! I believe her when she said she had an abusive childhood and witnessed domestic violence from an early age, but she really shouldn't use her children as her counsellors. My husband is filled with anger and helplessness at the people who abused his mother but what can he do about it now? They're dead, and besides it's not his pain to inherit. I wish I could have it out with her but I don't want to hurt him. I also REALLY don't want her to do this to my daughter either!
She has serious boundary issues - she just thinks everyone is there to serve her and be talked at constantly. I've long lost pity for her because I now feel she abuses peoples pity, then just turns around and talks about people behind their backs. I've caught her a few times bitching about me to my husband over the phone. She's a total user. She'll think nothing of having someone drive her around, then she'll talk all over the sat nav and give out about you getting lost!?! She has never supportedy husband financially through college (me and my family did that, while her son in law's family paid for her daughters education). She had my husband paying her mortgage and working while he was still in school!!! She always has plenty of money to buy tacky ornaments for her house. I love my husband but I really don't want her to be part of our lives any more.

It Must Be Tough Being a Martyr

Posted on Tue, Jul. 22, 2014 at 02:19 am

After our wedding ceremony, my husband and I chose to do a Chinese tea ceremony to honor my cultural heritage.

Then we did a Thai animal release to honor his cultural heritage.

Yet, when my relatives asked my mother-in-law if this was a Thai thing, she said, "No, I think it's *another* Chinese custom" -- as if my side were somehow monopolizing the whole wedding.

Uh... Just the week before, your son told you that he was doing an animal release, and YOU ASKED if you could help him look for the fish.

You've also done a fish release before; there's photographic evidence of this. So how exactly is it Chinese?

Guess what your son said when my relatives told him what you said? "What the hell?" and "God, she's so stupid." If you're okay with this, then by all means, continue acting like the victim / martyr.

I am over it. the next time you say ANYTHING about your headaches being so bad that you cant clean your own house or take care of your child, I am going to bring up every time that you've gone out in the past year and got so drunk that you had a massive hangover the next day.... and I'll say it in front of EVERYONE. I'll break it down like this... the shine and luster of marriage and motherhood has worn out for you. YOU SUCK AS A MOTHER AND WIFE. You are just making excuses because you want to be a lazy, pill popping pot head. Every time we have family functions at your house, my husband and I take bets on how deplorable the condition of your home is. I can't believe that you are absolutely okay with raising a child in that filth. When was the last time your floors have been swept and mopped properly? Been a long time. There is dried food, mud, vomit, dog hair, feces, and urine stains all over. How are you comfortable with inviting family and friends over when some are afraid to walk in the door? Your bedroom smells of shit and body odor. when was the last time you changed and washed the sheets on your bed? been a long time, huh? Not to mention that at those said family functions, you dont even attempt to take care of your son. You make my BIL do EVERYTHING. Even after busting his ass at work every day, he picks up your "so very sensitive child" from daycare, and tends to both of you because your headaches rend you useless. you need to be a responsible stay at home wife and take care of your son at home instead of making my BIL fork over almost a grand a month in childcare at that "special private school". Honey, you've been useless from day one and trapped my BIL by getting knocked up. He didn't want to marry you. We can all tell that he regrets saying "I do" to your pathetic ass. I've helped you one too many times and i refuse to do it again. You never try to keep anything clean when i do help, so thats practically a slap in my face when i go back a week later and it's like nothing i did was appreciated. It's time to grow up, clean up your fucking mess, and raise your son in a proper home. seriously. Quit being a lazy, overly demanding, irresponsible, careless, and disgusting human being. The next time we come over and it's just as horrible as always, i'm taking pictures and contacting Child Protective Services.

Oh... and yes.. when our HUGE bad ass house is finally finished, I am going to rub it in your face to no end. I keep my homes incredibly clean so I and the rest of the family are comfortable going to one of our houses. Don't think i don't know all the times you've talked to other family members behind my back saying that i act "high and mighty" just because my houses have been nicer, bigger, and better kept than yours. You HATE being outdone. The only reason we go to yours is because our house is still being built, our MILs house is too small, and so is our other SIL's. You're disgusting. I can't say it enough...

"The Girl"

Posted on Mon, Jul. 21, 2014 at 02:29 pm

So my mil lives with us. None of her other kids even so much as visit her. Yet everyone always fills her head and vice - a - versa. Especially when it comes to me. Even though I'm the one who takes her to dr, handles her meds, prepares her meals, shops for her etc. Doesn't matter. She'll refer to me as "the girl." Anytime she walks into the room (or I do) she does the exaggerated sigh. If I'm talking to my husband she'll interrupt and to talk about something else. When he says anything about it she gets mad. The other day I was cleaning my bathroom I'd ask him to get the toilet brush from her bathroom she had a fit and was arguing with him about it. Even though it belonged in my bathroom. Even after he told her I was going to bring it back when I was done she wanted to argue why was he taking the base too.

Save Your Crocodile Tears

Posted on Mon, Jul. 21, 2014 at 04:47 am

On our wedding day, my parents invited my in-laws to participate in a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. As they are Thai, my in-laws didn't know what it was or how it was performed. Despite not having answered my parents' invitation, though, they called my then-fiancé to "ask" (historically, their questions have been more like commandments than requests or the products of idle curiosity) if they were also performing the tea ceremony for XYZ.

During the tea ceremony itself -- after we had officially married and become husband and wife -- they gave my husband twice as much money as they gave me. The intent to give differing amounts was clear, because they had each inscribed an initial in the corner of their envelopes (one for me, one for my husband). They probably didn't realize that I was the one logging the gifts and writing the thank you notes, or that I would notice details like this. Real classy, guys. It's not like your dislike of me has not been obvious enough these past 4 years.

P.S. If you ever wonder why your son stays at my parents' house when he is in L.A. -- even when I'm not in town -- it's because of how you treat me. He saw me writing this story on "I Hate My In-Laws," and said, "Put 'This post is approved by my husband.'" I asked, "For real?" He said, "Yeah." He is onto you... Or didn't you realize that when you said to him last month, "Your [then-fiancée] only lives 150 miles away from us, so why doesn't she visit us more?" and he replied, "Are you serious?" Way to go; 1 day after your son and I got married, we've both been reminded anew just how fake your acceptance of me into your family really is.

Oh, yeah, a cellphone went off in the middle of our wedding ceremony, despite the officiant making a specific request to please turn them off. I'm pretty sure that it came from my husband's father, because I glanced over briefly as the noise startled me.

I feel for you ESIL

Posted on Mon, Jul. 21, 2014 at 01:55 am

You can't relax, take a day off. If you did, he would see right through you and so you need to keep up this act all the time. It must be exhausting.
I can see the burden of ensuring your cash flow (tolerating him and his annoying family) requires so many cigs that we're actually damaging your health, were so stressful to you. I see how you struggle to cope with me when I want to talk about stuff that doesn't involve you or your career, and how your heart just sinks under the strain of it.
His shitty temper keeps you constantly on your toes doesn't it? Any minute now he might crack up with your constant demands for money so life for you is a constant juggling act!
I know, I know, it's because you didn't have any material things as a child, I know. I heard this one a few times. Your childhood wasn't really a childhood so you're going at it again, childhood take two, and my BIL is to provide the father figure spending cash. Even I get it and I'm just a pleb.
Your husband, poor plonker, he doesn't realise does he? He's so blind it's a shame he thinks you wanted to be his WIFE! Hahaha! What a loser...... Oh well. Just keep spending his money, things will be okay in the end. Just you keep right on, looking after number one. In a marriage and a wider family, that's all that really matters.

A family of sociopaths

Posted on Sun, Jul. 20, 2014 at 08:59 pm

My life is MINE..NOT yours! Your constant control of my husband is not ok. He's not your husband , he's your son. Your husband is dead, your lady "friend" died , you have no life, so you feel you must ruin mine. You constantly want to monopolize my husbands time, he works all day and You "need" him every single night every Saturday and Sunday too! You need to get your own dreaming life and stay the hell out of mine. He doesn't like you nagging him, calling him, texting him "where are you at? What are you doing? Why haven't you called?" Like a jealous girlfriend!! It's sick!! You annoy him just as much as you annoy me he's just too nice to tell you. You left your three kids when they were little to live with another woman, they've all hated you at one point or another. You raised two sociopath daughters. They both hate me for no reason. I've never done anything to any of you. You've turned the step kids that I raised against me! And now I hear I'm to blame because my husband doesn't call his own adult children? I'm sick of you crazy people!!! The only sane person us my husband, I have no idea how the hell something as good as him came our of you. Your evil!! You've stolen from us, you've lied to us about money that was given to you for US!! Who does that?? You're a liar, a heartless sociopathic b***h and I truly loathe you and you two crazy daughters!! Ones a controlling bitch and the other is a druken controlling bitch!! You three are the devils duo!! You've taken mY 20's my 30's and now starting on my 40's!!! When will it stop !!! Go to hell and stay there...
