Sister In laws from HELL

Posted on Sat, May. 21, 2016 at 11:33 am

I cannot stand any of the sister in laws in my husbands family. One digs up public records all shares it with others and she is nothing but a habitual liar. The other one thinks her shit doesn't smell and she needs to be on my 600 pound life show. The other one is always having a pity party for herself and mooches off anyone. OMG I literally become physically sick when I have to see them twice a year.

Top ten reasons why I hate my inlaws

Posted on Sat, May. 21, 2016 at 10:30 am

1. Sister-in-law first visit to our new apartment: She not only rearrange all my furniture but cleaned my already clean apartment.
2. Sister-in-law invites four of her friends to my wedding without telling anyone. One of these friends caught the flower bouquet and my wedding pictures show her,clueless who she is. Besides the fact,had to pay for four more dinners.
3. Borrowed 5,000. From mother-in-law because her son,my spouse collected small disability check and the fact mother-in-law gave her daughters,their children so much more. Sister-in-law had to make sure her entire family knew about this loan. At mother-in-laws funeral luncheon, brother-in-law screams out,"Some people rob the gravy train before they die". Yeah, like I'm God and know she will die shortly after loan. The loan was paid in full,was all yours?
4. Spouse gives mother a kiss good bye at the Hostipal where most of the siblings are. One shouts out, "What are you going to ask her for another loan?"
I glared at her and got Oh,I'm only joking. No your not you control nut.
5. Always told the parents have no money. Oop,that 5,000. Loan they forgot to tear off the balance of her account. So greedy liars you are.
6. Holiday gatherings, if you left the room, they would say mean,nasty things about that person and then would be so sweet when you came back in room.
7. Holiday picture, my new outfit wasn't good enough for the grandson. The control nut had to purchase the outfit she wanted,etc.
8. Without asking, just buy not one but two rabbits for my son. Hello, I have two dogs.
9. Stupid parents have six children and no will. Mayor nasty emails start between the daughters. Control nut has total control,stating her spouse and daughter get money because they cared for the parents. I thought they did it out of love not money. What about the others that helped out. Nope,just her family.
10. When the father-in law dies, the control nut will not and did not go to his funeral,etc. Nope,was advised because she had fight over the flowers ordered for the funeral. Hey,stupid we all know it was over the money.

Can't Make It Up

Posted on Sat, May. 21, 2016 at 04:49 am

The woman used to love me. Couldn't say enough. Got engaged, wrath unleashed. Never told us congratulations on engagement. Asked me to sign a prenup for a home my husband pays for, they own it but she takes money out of his account to pay for it. My husband went ballistic on her.
Wedding ....all of a sudden, her daughter wants to get married ONE WEEK BEFORE US. Daughter had been engaged for 4 years prior. Tell me a little birdie wasn't chirping. There's so many things to tell. She was rude to my entire family, in front of me. I couldn't believe it. They saw with their own eyes and heard with their own ears. I could go on and on. Now, the younger brother is dealing with the same things. He was the golden child. Now, he hasn't spoke to them in months. It's crazy. The sister won't stand up to the parents. I hope that no one has to deal with a lying, evil, narcissistic manipulator like I have. I never thought my life would be like this. Believe me when I say, it's the very tip of the iceberg...and you can't make this stuff up.

Now THAT'S sad.

Posted on Fri, May. 20, 2016 at 07:45 pm

You KNOW your in-laws suck when your husband wants to take a weekend of leave to visit (he's military) but only on the condition that no one can know because he's afraid it will get back to his parents. He just doesn't want to deal with it, and I don't blame him a bit. He misses his siblings, but he's afraid one of them will mention it and blow the whole thing out of the water.

As much as we'd love to have a family outing that weekend, it's just too risky and the drama wouldn't be worth it.

I DESPISE my ILs. Sadly, my own family isn't much better because my Mom has always played favorites. She played favorites with my siblings and I, and now she plays favorites with the grandchildren. She has created a clique within our own family of her favorites. It's heartbreaking. Not only do I have to deal with criticism and exclusion from the ILs, but feel rejected by my own family too. If you saw me, you would think I have it made. I'm a SAHM with a hot, successful husband, beautiful children, new car, great vacations, blah, blah, blah. But I am plagued by sucky family members. So thankful for this site where I can vent and commiserate with others.

I blocked MIL on Facebook.

Reason: Her posts are nothing but selfies and self promoting nonsense and it makes me sick. Plus, I don't want her to be involved in my life.

I blocked MIL's phone number.

Reason: She insists on sending group messages (which are usually selfies or attention seeking nonsense) to at least 15 people every other day and at all hours of the night. This was AFTER I asked politely to be left out of said messages.

I use MIL's mugshot for her contact photo.

Reason: It's hilarious and pathetic.

I like to Google MIL's name.

Reason: The first thing that pops up is a news story regarding her arrest as a fugitive after failing to show up for a court date. She was indicted by a Grand Jury on two counts of theft (embezzlement) at her former business.

I believe in vampires.

Reason: MIL is one. She feeds on attention. She will take advantage of anyone, especially family. She asks for money all the time. If you let her in, she will take everything you have. She ruins her own life constantly and yet, never takes responsibility for anything. She is always a victim in her own mind. She is toxic.

I have distanced myself from her as much as possible. We've not seen her in a year and a half and it's been wonderful.

You are just another woman, not a motherly figure.

Posted on Fri, May. 20, 2016 at 11:42 am

You are just another woman (vice versa), and here I thought you would be motherly. After all these years, I have grown to ignore you and your ridiculousness.

Here's some advice to those who are struggling as I did the first few years of my marriage with my mother inlaw...

She will NEVER accept you no matter how hard you try because she does NOT look at you like she does her children. All you are is the "other" woman. So...stop trying, and just take care of yourself and your family. LIMIT EVERYTHING. YOU are in control not HER. She had her chance I am sure. It doesn't take a genius to know when your acting like a biotch, it's done on PURPOSE because she's TRYING to piss you off...it's time to let go. No more trying on your part. Every time you want to try to be kind...STOP! DON'T send that card, or flowers, or remind your husband to call her, she'll never appreciate it. NOTHING...DO NOTHING FOR HER. Because at the end of the day, YOU are a piece of shit to her and always will be because you did not shoot out of her VAGINA.

Why is it..

Posted on Fri, May. 20, 2016 at 10:45 am

That you know our address when you send out your graduation announcements, baby showers, wedding invitations, but conveniently forget our address for a thank you note when I take the time and trouble to send a gift (because my husband who you address them to can't be bothered). Considering the little regard you have for my kids, the gift grabs you send us are going straight into the garbage from now on.

Freedom at last

Posted on Fri, May. 20, 2016 at 07:41 am

Why oh why did I not know do this 30 years ago. I was so young and was brought up to respect my elders and never be rude or argue, so I put up with all the cruel things you said to me hoping that one day you would stop, but it was not to be in my MIL eyes you just saw it as a open invitation to kick me down even more to the point where I didn't even recognise myself,there really should be a law against you narcissist people,you never know when to stop you are so jealous of every thing about me the way I look the way I dress my successful career I took insult after insult about my family who are all successful hard working decent and respectable whereas your family are all benefit scroungers immoral lazy dirty live in rancid homes breed feral children. I often wonder what it must be like on fathers day in your family since all of your grand kids have different fathers but that's only if they even know who the fathers are, but somehow you prefer that family to mine I understand you feel threatened by my superior and morally sound family so Why don't start simple by learning how to wash your faces even bush your teeth oh sorry none have you have any. You will never reach my high standards but that is and always will be the problem.I started out respecting you because of my upbringing but sadly I don't respect you only feel pity because I realise you must be incensed by my high standards all of wish you will never reach So take your skanky family who you pretend to favour, (we all know it's only to hide your embarrassment)and keep pretending to be proud you deluded ass hole.

Having to explain the dysfunction

Posted on Fri, May. 20, 2016 at 06:43 am

Dh and I look normal from the outside it's when people ask about his family it get's uncomfortable. My family is spread out all over the country. That's it. We have our own lives, talk once in awhile, no drama. In-laws, on the other hand, all live in one state within a five mile radius of each other. There are 9 kids in the family and they used to visit but I had to put my foot down and say no more. They are to poor for a hotel so they would sleep all over my floors, couches and chairs. The big city is to stimulating and they would call out to people "What the f**k!" because they thought they were being stared at. One sil (bil's wife) grabbed my dh's ass and mil and a friend of hers broke into our house while we were on vacation and lived here for three days until we got home and I had dh kick them out. That was the end of the visits. There is no way to tell all the horribleness this family has inflicted on my family and others. It's got the bad memories coming up because dd's graduation is in a few weeks and everyone is talking about all the family that will be visiting and I say some of my family might. Dh said not to invite il's because he's afraid they will show up. He doesn't want to be embarrased in front of our friends. I know il's think it's a funny game to raz the newbie to the family but it's not. It's a hurtful, inmature and a dangerous game. The il's made dh choose where his loyalties lie and they lost a son and our amazing dd's. They only have themselves to blame but they don't. They blame me but it doesn't matter. I live hours away, I have my dh and dd's and at times like holidays and graduations I do miss having family but not that family, never that family.
