SIL Problem

Posted on Fri, Jul. 25, 2014 at 07:01 pm

My sil has not called the house for at least 2 weeks, it has been wonderful for me. So she called today and my dh started his nonsense again( acting like a jerkoff, treating me like crap, just being stupid.) I had the nerve to ask him what she wanted to be calling our home after 2 weeks of silence. I knew something was up by the way he acted towards me. He would not tell me what she said, and that is telling. They are up to no good and I am so fed up with this nonsense. This all started because I am going out of town for the day tomorrow and he is pissed off at me for this. How silly can you get. I did not say a thing when he went out of town for 2 days, so why cop an attitude towards me for leaving for 8 hours. And of course, his sister is egging this on, and I will lie in wait to get her for this. HE needs to grow up and stop this nonsense. I am on the edge of wanting a divorce. I am dealing with chronic health condition myself and I have taken care of him for 18 years and it's time for him to cut the cord from his family and start taking care of me for a while. God I am tired of all this skulking around with his sister. I am too old for all of this nonsense. It is not normal for a 53 year old man to speak with his sister once a week. It is time to give dh a reality check, and I am going to let him get a dose of reality tomorrow when I am gone for the day, we will see how he likes it. The best part of the day is that I am free from all the responsibilities that I normally deal with, I am taking the day off, enjoy my dh, it's your turn to take on responsibility for a day. Be sure to whine to your sister, she won't help and my mother will not tolerate any of your nonsense from your sister, she is old and not happy with the way your are treating me after you have been around your sister, she wants to lay into your sister and be careful, she can be a real bitch when you treat her baby wrong.

FIL just had a stroke. He's on his death bed even though he's not that old. While my heart goes out to DH and I am trying to comfort him, I secretly could not care less about this evil man who has wronged my kids and me so many times for so many years. My MIL is even meaner and I can't help but think she's getting the pain she's served to others. I know I shouldn't feel this way but....I DO!

FIL, you are the epitome of gross. DH went to visit your squalid hell hole of a house to help you install an AC in your bedroom. we know your wife is too fat to climb upstairs and you sleep in your room alone. you knew we were coming over, but still left a massive pile of used tissues on your night stand and had a huge box on the ground filled to the brim with half empty bottles of lotions and lubricants. seriously, you KNEW we were coming over and we were going to be in your room. why the hell didn't you clean up first?

Things I 'love' about my in laws:
I love how we live the closest yet visit the least
I love how you pay for everything for your other kids including a house.
I love that you are incapable of helping your grandchildren get to school 6 days a month even though you are both retired
I love how you are able to volunteer but are unable to go to grandparents day
I love how you were unable to pay for dh'a college but managed to pay in full the others
I love that you always say 'if we had known'
I love that he would have starved in college but for me taking food from the cafeteria for him
I love how you go to church every day and believe this absolves you

And by love I mean hate.

medical emergency

Posted on Thu, Jul. 24, 2014 at 07:49 pm

I begin my hellish in law story years ago when my mother in law told me my sister in law was sleeping around on her other son and had a child by another man. Who could say this and be so sweet to this little boys face and say these things behind her Grandson's back.
It then came to pass that her oldest boy died and she was living nearby to me. She tried to bully me saying that my sister and mothers death didn't matter. She then started saying to my husband that I was seeing someone else which almost causes us to divorce. We went on a trip to yellowstone. After traveling 80 miles we had to turn back because they forgot their medication.
They eventually moved and when her mother died she made a comment to me about some other woman being the love of my husbands life. I ignored this for my children. About 5 years ago they showed up for a vacation I had scheduled for the family for their 50th wedding anniversary. I got them expensive rooms and we spent a couple of days out. My mother in law then fractured her skull and I had to help her. I then paid when she was sent to a main hospital and they said she could die. She lived and became the willing recipient of 2 oxygen tanks. The next year we went to their place and my husband didn't even care when she climbed the stairs on a riverboat. I stood behind her. The next visit was our hose and my father in law said he was having a heart attack after he came in. He wasn't. Last year we went to a family reunion and discovered they bought an expensive used rig with a dvd player. At this point after my mother in law tried to loan out my daughters car and I told her no, they told my husband they needed his help through bankrupcy. At this point my husband against my advice stated he would give them his credit card. He drove 13 hours and took care of the 1000.00 attorney. Then he found out his father had to have a surgery to open up a valve in his heart. The morning he was taking his dad across their special little doggie rug he rolled his ankle and it blew up to 4 times its normal size. Sice then my father in law who also has parkinsons also had a double hernia surgery. Now it comes to pass that I had to make a couple of appointments so my husband got us 3 free nights at a hotel. I bought tickets for shakespeare in tahoe so my husband and two children were on our way whe n my husband said that his parents were going to show up at my house on august 9th when I had been planning on my vacation starting August 10th. He is only taking 1 day off for his parents for this. I seriously am contemplating a separation when the kids are set up in college

Posted on Thu, Jul. 24, 2014 at 06:44 pm

dear mil all the gifts you send to the kids and us also all the money you send even after we have not seen or talked to you in almost 5 years. You cannot buy our love, you have to respect our boundaries and actually say nice things not rude things.

Paid up?

Posted on Thu, Jul. 24, 2014 at 08:37 am

Congratulations, hick-in-laws! The meth lab must be doing well, since you have evidently reupped internet service. Or perhaps you came across some stolen property to pawn?

Thank you so much, psychotic hick, for your pithy words of "wisdom." But why would I take the advice of someone who sounds high on mushrooms? Get back to me when you are able to construct a logical, complete sentence, i.e., when Hell freezes over.

Stupid Racist Inlaws Are Broke

Posted on Thu, Jul. 24, 2014 at 04:27 am

I live in the UK and my wife's family are stupid, bigotted, ignorant throwbacks living in a non European country with no welfare state, no free health care, no state pension. She emigrated here as a teenager, has spent most of her life here and has British citizenship.

Her family are proudly old school right wing racists who think all forms of socialism are evil - but this doesn't stop them using our free health service every time they come to visit!!! Who needs travel insurance when you travel to Britain...

They don't care about the poor and live in a nice little whites only suburb completely cut off from the rest of the world.


Just found out their pension fund has been plundered and they are broke - a long story and currently a major scandal in their country.

The inlaws have spent the last decade pissing money up a wall acting as if the good times would never end. Even when they realised the pension was shrinking TEN YEARS AGO they continued to stick their heads in the sand and didn't even try to budget for the future. International holidays, a pool in the garden and a premier casino membership!!!

It looks like we will be bailing them out for the rest of their lives. Yeah, we will be sending over all our spare cash to fund people WHO LIVE IN A BIGGER HOUSE THAN US because they are arseholes. Their living room is the same size as our whole appartment.

They drive to the corner shop at least 3 times a day even though you can see it from their house. We do not own a car.

There is no way out and the situation will not change. It will only get worse. They are screwed and we have to support them or they will starve.

They legally cannot move over here and we cannot legally move there so living together is not an option - so not all bad news....

Oh well, maybe they will die before I reach 50.
