"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.

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...

I have no feelings left

Posted on Sun, Jul. 20, 2014 at 08:13 pm

Both my in-laws hate me. They have treated me like crap for 15 years and let me know exactly how they feel about me. My dh has for the most part defended them with some excuse or another.

One of the in-laws has been ill for a while and is now seriously ill. This is the moment I should have felt sympathy, empathy, sadness etc. I felt nothing.

They have driven any feeling I could have ever had for them out of me with their hateful behavior.

They have broken me, broken my spirit, my heart with all the hateful behavior.

I have nothing left to give and no feeling left.

Mercedes Sister-In-Law - Glad to Move On!

Posted on Sun, Jul. 20, 2014 at 01:29 pm

You are a complete idiot with a lot of growing up to do. You divorced your husband, splintering your family. I've been told your kids seem effected and don't seem happy. On the surface, all the shared outings and vacations between you and your husband have the appearance of being healthy but, I know all too well what your value system is.

I remember how you treated the father of your children when you were married. I remember how you conducted yourself in front of your own children. You have an intensely stubborn and vindictive personality and, you have a temper. A temper you keep hidden from the rest of the family. No wonder the kids prefer their father. You are a complete bitch with a compromised set of morals.

Did you know your ex-husband is dating someone already? Hint: It's someone you both know and I hear she is gorgeous. Unlike you who is ugly from the inside out.

I am so glad I don't have to see you anymore. I expect that we will be at the same family event at some point in the future and I really don't care about that. As long as you are out of my life and I don't have to listen to your nasaly voice, I'm happy! Seriously, all kidding aside, your voice was always like nails on a chalkboard. Do you even have a sense of how much people cannot stand you? Well your ex SIL is here to tell you, I am one of many!

DH cut them out!

Posted on Sun, Jul. 20, 2014 at 12:30 pm

DH grew up in a dysfunctional family with a miserable childhood filled with his parents fighting, being beaten by his father, an older sister who was mean and a brother who just didn't care. His father favoured his older sister and brother who were both single (the sister was divorced). They received preferential treatment in terms of FIL's money and assets. The dysfunction continues amongst ESIL and EBIL who refuse to grow up. They were coddled into their adult years by DH's parents. DH is independent and went his separate way growing into a mature man with his own family. ESIL and EBIL are jealous of DH as he created his own life and they did not. Family get togethers have been painful as ESIL (drama queen) always like to stir up some crap. DH decided for his own sanity and mine he would just cut them out of his life once and for all. They are just moochers and users anyways. I've never been happier!

Adios to the Shit Disturber

Posted on Sun, Jul. 20, 2014 at 10:10 am

The ugly witch monstor in law finally decided it was time to move into a home. Since she now has bingo and a friend to hang with there the delusional paranoid ideations about me have lessened. Yehh I go with DH to "visit" every few months while she blabs on about her favorite topic - herself. I still get the glares and the minute I say a word about me or some good news to share, she looks away or downward to reveal her jeAlousy, but the good news is I dont give a rats ass anymore. Her nonstop gossiping slanderous lies she has spread about me has been painful but her narcissistic racist mentally unbalanced rhetoric only
clarified that the problem was all about her not me. She doesnt even deserve a visit but I still go to prove one thing that Im the better person and she is still the same old nut job.

Dump her!!!!

Posted on Sun, Jul. 20, 2014 at 09:57 am

Dear Stepson, Please stop shoving your uneducated white trash girlfriend down everyone's throat!! Every event in our lives has turned into drama, tears and pouting whenever you don't let her have her way. Your father made it clear after his birthday party that she is no longer welcome in our home. After no hello, no goodbye, no thank you for all the food and booze that she pushed into her face like a rabid wolverine, the snotty snears at everone and the large scene in the driveway because you won't marry her we have had enough! I am not a bitch...it was your fathers decision not to go to Thanksgiving or spend time with you on vacation because of her..not mine!! You may think you're brilliant by inviting your father out for bonding..just you two...and then dragging her along. He is wise to you and will be turning down every invite in the future. Every person in your life, family & friends, have told you that she is horribly wrong for you. We all hate seeing her manipulate you. We really wish you'd open your eyes
