Food snobs?

Posted on Fri, Jul. 11, 2014 at 02:33 pm

My Inlaws love to invite themselves over to my home and help themselves to everything in it. Then complain about it.
FIL is simply a jerk. Nothing more, nothing less.
MIL is a manipulative gossip who freaks out over every thing under the sun.
SIL is just like her mother, only with jealousy issues and attention whore tendencies mixed in.

Years ago, my SIL threw a jealous temper tantrum fit because her parents complemented me on my cooking. She started flipping out and even crying on them.
Long story short, they now degrade and belittle me and my cooking every chance they can. Even if they invite themselves over for dinner, they always have a lovely rude comment about me, my house or my cooking.

I made fettuccini Alfredo for dinner, MIL turned her nose up and requested that we go out for dinner. I found it interesting that directly after she requested to go out, she mentioned SIL was going to call soon.
SIL called and freakishly asked about the food we ate..MIL proudly proclaimed she did not have any and SIL sounded incredibly pleased (MIL made sure to answer the phone in front of me).

FIL invited himself over for lunch unannounced. I happened to be making some ravioli for the kids. FIL walked around the house sarcastically yelling "OH YAY I GET KID FOOD EVERYBODY!!" He even called SIL in front of me to tell her that he was about to have "kid food" for lunch.

My PILs invited themselves over for thanksgiving, I was very ill and did not want to spread my illness or hear their crap about my food.
So, I told mil she could make dinner. SIL called FIL after dinner, FIL yelled loudly "of course it was good! Your mom made it" then glared at me.

I've never seen people be such assholes over FOOD! It is supposed to keep you alive, not be a constant source of entertainment or way to torture your DIL! Get a freaking life!

I don't have enough middle fingers for my inlaws and what they have done to me. I'd appreciate it if you all would crowdfund me and wherever you live turn toward the west coast of the US where most of them live, and give them the one-finger salute. On the count of 3...1,2,3....PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm Psychic!!!

Posted on Fri, Jul. 11, 2014 at 05:58 am

My DH kept quiet about several secret meetings he had with GBIL whereupon GBIL tried to "borrow" $50,000.00 from him. I didn't know anything about it for about 30 years, DH hid it from me. However, the ILs must think I'm psychic because it's all my fault GBIL didn't get DH's money!!! Of course!!!

I survived the visit

But his latest annoying habit is that he no longer bathes. Wastes water, you know. He just wipes his face and hands with a damp cloth.

I'm going to clean the house top to bottom.

My Father-In-Law's a Real Peach

Posted on Thu, Jul. 10, 2014 at 07:22 pm

The truth about me according to my FIL (The Matriarch of the whole family):-
Firstly, I used my wiles (including unknown porn star, stripping, gold digging talents) to discover a certain company was thinking of making a major deal purchasing some land owned by my unknown future husband. Using my hidden espionage talents I tracked down my future husband a few years later and inserted myself into his life by holding a gun to his head. Then I waited patiently for another 7 years until the company purchased the land whereupon my FIL reminded my husband that he could still go back to his ex-girlfriend. Unfortunately, my husband is still under threat from the gun to his head 12 years on and as such can’t leave me. Woweee, I live an exciting life in FIL's world.

Oedipus Complex

Posted on Wed, Jul. 09, 2014 at 10:21 pm

My father and mother in law have given me enough material to write an encyclopedia with, so it's hard to pick which stories are best to share.
There's the time my husband and I invited them over for dinner one night and my fil used the restroom off of the living room with the door wide open, while everyone was in the living room. He did this not once, but THREE TIMES that night, the first time allowing me to get a glimpse of his...package. Cute.
My mil would be an enormous interest to Freud for all of the Oedipus complex symptoms she's shown towards my husband, her son. She's VERY interested in our sex life and often asks questions and wants details from my husband. She once went through my husbands phone while he was in the shower and read a sexy conversation that we had had that day and asked him about it later on. She is constantly talking about my body, particularly my breasts, hips and butt. She asks me to turn around for her to get a look whenever I'm around her wearing jeans.
When I was pregnant with our first son, my mil had an opinion on every aspect of what we wanted for labor/ delivery. I wanted a natural birth and she told me everyday that I wasn't strong enough to go through with that. Yet she's upset to this day (a year after my son was born) that we didn't include her in the birth plan.
My mil didn't show up for my baby shower and nether did my husbands sister. None of his family showed up for our sons first birthday party, and refused to acknowledge it was his birthday. They have never given us a reason as to why they ignored is on such big days.
But she begs my husband everyday for us to let her watch our baby. Not in a million years. They are very heavy drinkers and were irresponsible parents to my husband and his siblings. I don't trust her as far as I could throw her, which isn't very far. 280 lbs and built like a quarterback.
It's been fun getting to know her...

Help? What help?

Posted on Wed, Jul. 09, 2014 at 01:33 pm

What is it about having a baby that makes everyone pretend that they are going to "help" you after the baby is born? DH and I live on our own..states away from our families. We've lived away from them for a long time and never asked for any type of help. We find everything to be much less stressful if we take care of ourselves/our responsibilities and do not involve the ILs, as they make everything so much worse.
Why would I be inclined to believe having a newborn would be any different? Why would I believe that all of the sudden, MIL is going to become this great and helpful person after multiple horrible past experiences?

MIL is pulling the "I want to help with the new baby" card, and freaking out when we tell her that she can not just move in our house for x amount of time after the baby is born. I don't mind if she wants to VISIT her grand child, in fact- I encourage that. The fact that she is trying to move in our house for weeks under the false pretenses of pretending to help however..not going to happen.

You have shown repeatedly that you have no respect for boundaries, privacy or our property.
You don't even keep your own house clean.
You've given me horrible child care advice.
You couldn't even keep your eye on our dog for 5 minutes without him escaping your back yard the one time we asked you to watch him.

What the heck makes you think that I believe you will actually be of any help?!
I know you. You're going to camp your fat ass on the couch, eat all of our food and complain about everything in sight.

They're getting old

Posted on Wed, Jul. 09, 2014 at 12:09 pm

One of the in-laws is now to ill to travel. What does this mean for me? It means they won't be visiting any time soon. It's so peaceful knowing they won't be visiting for weeks on end. My hope is that this in-law lives for a very long time. I certainly wouldn't want anyone to die. Maybe if this goes on long enough the other one will be too old to travel by the time it's all said and done.

One can only wish for peace after 20+ years of hateful behavior toward me. I wouldn't wish illness on anyone but if this is the way it is I'll take my peace any way I can.
