Now I understand the term MONSTER-in-law!!!!

Posted on Tue, May. 26, 2015 at 07:10 am

My future MIL and FIL lived with my soon to be DH when we met because of health issues....his are service related. MIL's are smoking and lazy related....yeah, some are real because of the burns on her back from when she was a child.

HOWEVER!!!!! Don't expect sympathy from me when you are in pain but won't go to the doctor to get tests to get your pain medication refilled! Don't complain to me that you can't breathe when you have a 3 pack a day habit! don't complain to me when you "don't feel right" when you will not test your sugar, will not take you diabetes medicine and eat everything a diabetic isn't supposed to have!

Dear MIL, you won't even go up the stairs to use the only toilet in the house. you use your wheelchair bound husbands potty chair. You hoard so much that my FIL and yourself have to sleep on the living room furniture and his potty chair has had to be put in the kitchen. You don't make your own sandwiches for lunch. You don't get your own drink out of the fridge. You walk to the kitchen for the potty chair, yet you ask my 12 and 10 year old children to make your sandwich, grab your pop, clean YOUR room when YOU'VE lost something in there and have even had he audacity to demand one of my childrens chores to be emptying the potty that YOU pee and poop in. Your husband is in adult diapers, thats not his stuff getting flushed down the toilet!!!!!

I don't work, I take care of you, your husband and my 3 children. You treat me like your personal shopper and my children like your butlers (slaves). You take your DS's paycheck and deposit it into your account, give him one of your debit cards then tell him how much he is allowed to spend. All I ask for are necessities (soap, shampoo, deoderant, ect), food, pop, cigarettes (yes, I smoke too). I don't even ask for new clothes or shoes until mine (a) no loner fit or (b) are ruined.

You say there isn't enough money in the bank to cover gas for me to go visit my family that lives 4 hours away (about $200 round trip) yet there is money for you to play bingo at the casino followed by quater slot machines where you spend $1.25 per spin? Yet there is money for you to make an $200 to sometimes $500 order from Amazon?!?!?!?

Dear MIL, I love your DS with all my heart and soul. It breaks my heart to know I am going to have to leave him because I can no longer tolerate you.

I just overheard my coworker say that they only see there in-laws once every two years because they live the other side of the world.
I have to admit...I'm extremely jealous!
I wish mine lived the other side of the world too.

Intolerable species

Posted on Mon, May. 25, 2015 at 11:48 pm

This is to inform all the scientists in the world that I have discovered a new species. Its my DH and his family. Their genre needs to get into some nomenclature in the animal kingdom. I am struggling with it. Need some help.
Characteristics of this species:
1. Ego as big as a dinosaur
2. IQ of an ostrich.
3. Proud like a peacock (not a good comparison..peacock is at least beautiful n calm)
4. Cunning like a fox.
5. Skin as thick as of rhino.
6. Lazy as a toad
7. Boisterous as stormy sea winds
8. Bitter as a hemlock
9. Cheap as dirt
10. Complacent as a cat
11. Haughty as devil
12. Shouts (Barks) like a dog
13. Spineless as jellyfish

And the most important one....they are s***h**les. Any suggestion for naming this intolerable species?

In laws stress me out.

Posted on Mon, May. 25, 2015 at 06:29 pm

My relationship with my in laws is unhealthy and very stressful. My MIL and SIL, luckily, live in another country. Unfortunately this distance doesn't keep them from chastising my every move. I was told by my MIL that the only reason my husband married me was because he didn't think he could get any one better. My SIL can do not wrong in her parents eyes- even though she's 33 and still lives at home. I've deleted my Facebook account because I was tired of my MIL's snarky comments.
My FIL is another story. He lives just a mile away from us, so he thinks that we should have him over every day. He's a pathetically miserable man who won't get out of his own way. He suggests, regularly, that he just might commit suicide. This makes my husband and me always on edge. So, out of guilt we'll have him over. When over he'll make snide remarks, even said to me tonight, "No offense: I'm not saying you're fat, but your butt is getting big".
I could write pages more on them. I just wish that they were completely out of my life so that I'd stop getting so worked up about them.

Mil and fil from hell

Posted on Mon, May. 25, 2015 at 05:33 pm

All I want to say is I hate my mil and fil with a burning passion that just the thought of them makes my blood boil! How unfortunate that I have to live with them! How unfortunate that I have a sissy simpleton for a husband who doesn't look after his wife and strive to make her happy; instead he loves pleasing his mummy and daddy. And they manipulate him so bad and he's so dumb to notice or even care. What happened to the man I married?? His mummy got jealous and decided to make my life hell. Well u silly cow, watch what happens - Ull be left with nothing. U and ur darling husband. U can both rot in the dark depths of hell for all I care. Made my life a living misery for long enough. I hope u spend countless lifetimes regretting ur actions and begging for my forgiveness! I will never forgive either of u and the quicker u r out of my life, the better!! Now whose going to help me out so I can move to the other side of the the world lol?? Plz send some good vibes my way and help me in my prayers that my husband acknowledges his responsibilities and starts acting like a husband, a 34 yr old man, and not a 5 yr old who still needs his mum to wipe his bloody backside! #growapair!!!!

That must suck, to be you.

Posted on Mon, May. 25, 2015 at 04:10 pm

MIL, it must suck to be alone in the hospital, after your breast cancer surgery. I hope you are getting some attention from somebody. Because I imagine I would feel scared and awful if it were me. It must be REALLY tough for a narcissist.

And while your son is sorry for you, those of us who don't love you are just bracing for the next drama. I wish I could emote this to you, so if you are out there reading please understand: I will never give in. Your cancer does not give you any special privileges with me. You are still nowhere near inner circle and you never will be.

I'd send a card, but you decided to disown me last summer and I called your bluff. You shouldn't play games with people who aren't even remotely afraid to lose you.
Anyway, get well soon!

Fake Surgery To Get Son to Visit

Posted on Mon, May. 25, 2015 at 12:19 pm

You know how it goes...This year, we spend Thanksgiving with my family, and then Christmas would be yours...

My evil MIL is so manipulative that she told my husband that she scheduled surgery for Thanksgiving for one of her obese ailments. When my husband called and told her he couldn't visit her for surgery, she said it wasn't a problem because she was going on a cruise!

What do you guys think? Evil? Manipulative? Conniving?? [You can choose "all of the above"! lol!!!]

I seriously pity her.

Vile creature

Posted on Mon, May. 25, 2015 at 07:45 am

To my revolting cousin!

Playing it dumb and innocent for the last two years whilst my family took you in? The truth is out... I don't care that no one believes us one day its going to be proven and you will fall flat on your manipulative face. I feel sorry for your unborn child, even faking who the dad is whilst tricking the real one into IMPREGNATING YOU! Pathetic cow. Cant wait until the money supply runs out and you haven't even got a soup kitchen to turn to. Maybe just steal from your loved ones like before. Urgh you make me sick and your child will look like the guy from the goonies due to your excessive drug smoking and drinking. Don't ever knock on my door for help unless its for help pushing you back into the sewer where you belong lol And to all the stupid family members that are taken in by your act tell them the same. You bunch of money grabbing leeches.

Think again!

Posted on Sun, May. 24, 2015 at 07:59 pm

This is to my future husbands' sister.

As far as I'm concerned, we will be SIL's in name only.
You've shown me just how much of a spiteful, twisted, two-faced liar you are and I don't associate with people who choose to behave in that manner.
I can't believe I once thought you were a nice person.
Don't speak to me, look at me or even attempt to contact me in anyway shape or form because it will fall on deaf ears.
I'm not interested in you. Go to hell!

Oh the web we weave...

Posted on Sun, May. 24, 2015 at 06:50 pm

MIL I know you've never liked me. Not because of anything I've done or said, either. You don't like me because by dating and marrying me it meant your puppet was being taken away from you. The son who you would call day and night when you needed help, since you are all alone since FIL died. Your daughter was smart and moved hours away. Never mind you have dozens of relatives within a 5 mild radius of you. No, call your son to come from 1.5 hours away to fix your mower, check your washer, shovel your driveway. For years it worked on him. He felt so much guilt for you being "alone". Never mind you reminding him every time you asked a "favor" how he had promised FIL he would help you. Yeah, you went there for years. Using your dead husband as a manipulation technique.

You certainly didn't like it when we put a stop to it when our oldest was born. You whined to everyone how DH had abandoned you. Never mind he had a family of his own to take care of. A daughter he only got to see a few hours a week due to working out of town. But let's martyr ourselves to the world when he finally woke up and said no to you.

Or let's talk about how you favor our oldest. She used to get piles of presents from you. When our 2nd came along you basically ignored her. She would get 1-2 presents while you still showered the oldest with lavish gifts by the bagful. We put a stop to it after the first round of birthdays and Christmas, though. One present each. Anything else is donated. You whined how unfair.

Or let's talk about how you shun me? My first Mother's Day when I was 7.5 months pregnant was spent cleaning up your yard. You even fed DH, BIL and SIL. But not me. You lied to DH and said I wasn't hungry, when in fact you never came and told me you were eating and I was at the outskirts of your property so I couldn't see. You've never so much as acknowledged I'm a mother.
Or at my baby shower when you used MY camera to take dozens of pictures of your friends and family, yet there's not a single one of me. At my shower. The one you were asked to bring a specific cake and you decided you didn't want to and brought what you wanted. Where you tried to take most of my presents home with you. Where you were rude to my guests.
Or every holiday/birthday for the last 7 years where I get an IOU for a present. Usually months after the day. I could wallpaper a room with them all. Yet you manage to spend thousands on DH, our kids, SIL and SIL DH. And you rub it in my face.
When my mom died I came home from the hospital after being with her for 24 hours (while I was 14 weeks pregnant) to take a shower and see my daughter who you were watching while DH picked me up. We were taking my mom off life support that night. You said to my daughter "I'm your only grandma now." Then looked at me smugly. Of course it was a misunderstanding, right?

Or you stealing our wedding money that GMIL, SIL and BIL gave you to give us as they thought you were adding to it to pool as one check. You lied to them all and said you bought us a washer and dryer. No, my parents gifted us those. Oh, wait- it was a stove. No, we got that ourselves off Craigslist. Oh, it was our van. No, we bought that at a dealer. Oh, wait- we GAVE YOU the money to go on vacation to Hawaii. No, you kept it, blew it and lied. You did try to get DH to leave me while I was 9 months pregnant to go with you, though.

Or how about when I had a medical emergency while DH was out of town and I called you to help? You took 4 hours to get here to watch my girls so I could go to the hospital. It then took me an hour to reach you because you wouldn't answer the phone for me to tell you I had to have emergency surgery, I had an ectopic pregnancy and it was rupturing. I asked you to bring the girls up because I wanted to see them before I went in and you decided to take them out to eat first instead? When DH finally got there you lied and said you were there. No, I went in alone. And afterward you told everyone how helpful you were. And never once offered any support for our loss. Even in the following months when I had to have several procedures done due to complications.

DH has started standing up to you. Every so often he will be guilted into something for you. But it's much better than it used to be. You'd think after a decade of being around me you would have learned I'm the boss, not you. Yet you still run around martyring yourself to anyone who will listen. You didn't get to spend Mother's Day with us? Nope, it's my day too and I don't want to spend it with you. You don't get Christmas Eve and day with us? Nope, I want to spend them with my family. Your son doesn't call you on your birthday? Nope, he doesn't remember unless I remind him and I dropped that rope a few years ago. You never even bother with him on his so why would he for you?
