Sexist, Bigoted and Racist FIL

Posted on Wed, Oct. 17, 2018 at 05:58 pm

FIL, I had cordially warned you numerous times that sexist, bigoted or hateful comments are not welcome in my home, especially not welcome in front of my daughter. Never mind that I let slide that you called a Brazil nut the “n word” toe when my daughter was 7. Never mind that I turned a blind eye so many times when you said so many dirty sexist jokes. That is my fault for not saying anything then. But yesterday was too far. I was trying to explain to your wife, MIL that it is great to hear that your gardener’s son may be going to college despite that they may be undocumented and you interrupted by saying you are upset on how pregnant Mexican women would come across the border to the US to have their children. Were you wanting to stir the crap? Of course you see them as deplorable, but in my eyes they are human and have every right to do whatever they can to make a better life for themselves and their unborn child. Then you had to back that up with how you detest people who don’t speak English and are disheveled at your dialysis center, how they don’t deserve to be there. How can you judge people just because they look and speak differently from you? My late real father is a first generation immigrant and you disrespect his memory because you very well know he and my family faced racism- and you still cross the boundary by shooting off these comments. The trigger was when I was calmly explaining that it offended me you told me to shut up and quit it, in my very own kitchen and my very own home of all places. That is why I got up and said loudly and forcefully “HOW DARE YOU!” And yelled back at you that I will not shut up and will not stay quiet. I know very well you may think I’m over reacting, I am fully aware losing my temper is not cool. And I am also aware you are a grown man and should understand that my forceful language was to put you back in your place. I will not be silenced and I will not stay quiet while you poison the air in my home. I am ashamed I ever let you weasel through our life this far.

My Husbands Aunt

Posted on Wed, Oct. 17, 2018 at 01:35 pm

Listen up dear matriarch,

I am waiting for the day you meet your maker. When that day happens, everyone will be released of your wicked spell.

Let’s start with your daughter. She is a fucking “mini me” of you. She’s nearly 50 years old and still without a meaningful relationship. Nope, she cannot even begin to enjoy true love because of you. If the person she chooses isn’t good enough for you, he/she is not good enough for her. She’s been dating like crazy all over the place and still nothing. In the meantime, she’s busy picking apart my relationship with her cousin, because “I’m not good enough for him”. I believe she needs to keep out and figure out what she’s got to do. You don’t have any grandchildren because of you. I guarantee you’re the problem. Fuck you

As for my MIL, she is forever bound to you because you are the one person she’s been so afraid of. She got pregnant at 16 years old with your brothers kid. She came from such a shitty childhood and felt so accepted and loved by your family, she wasn’t getting that attention at her own home, she sought out yours. You picked her up, you gave her what she needed and now she’s forever indebted to you, much like when someone sells their soul to the devil. When the relationship with she and your brother failed, you tried to hook her up with your other brother...hmmmm control much? Yep, she is afraid of you and would do anything to not be on the receiving end of your wrath like you do me. So this is why she chose you to help with the dirty work on me. You have clearly intimidated the fuck out of her her entire adult life. She knew she could pull out the big guns if she wasn’t pleased with anyone her own son was happy with. You won the honors, Fuck you.

I don’t give two shits about you, you do not have hold of me or my cares. I think you’re a lonely piece of shit that preys on the weak minded. You’re controlling, lonely and heartless. Maybe cheating on your dying husband helped seal that opinion. Ah formalities, whatever, you’re an ass, fuck you.

You have a surviving brother left and you cannot even visit him, no, you need to show everyone around all the wonderful gifts you’ve purchased for him so that you can see all the smiles and praise of your thoughtless efforts as you hand the bag over to them to deliver for you. You can’t be bothered taking these things to him without the audience you so desperately need, because of course, what the hell is gift giving if you can’t get so much praise for being to awesome? I mean everyone I know only gives so that people believe their bullshit. Why hang out with anyone else? You should have taken those gifts to your own brother instead of showing us everything and making us do your work. Fuck you

I could go on but there’s not enough internet space and care. You’ve already consumed too much of my life. I’m just waiting ever so patiently for you to drop dead so that your daughter can find love, my MIL can fucking relax and my FIL can be rid of his energy sucking vampire of a hellish sister who doesn’t love a damn soul here on earth. So much heavy hate would be lifted if you gave us this. Your demise would essentially disable your minions, they wouldn’t know what to fucking do. Go be with your true love in the depths of hell. Fuck You

Not Hiding Your Favorites Anymore

Posted on Wed, Oct. 17, 2018 at 09:26 am

I wonder what my expression was when you looked me in the eye and said "I can't go more than a few weeks without seeing my grandkids," because you go for years without traveling to see my kids. We all know you have favorites, but you're not even trying to hide it anymore.

self centered jerk MIL

Posted on Tue, Oct. 16, 2018 at 12:30 pm

Sent her granddaughter (my daughter) a birthday card inscribed with a reminiscence of her dead son. How appropriate, cheerful, and all about the person celebrating (not!!) It was all about what SHE was going through at the time of my child's birth.
No matter what the occasion in our lives, MIL has to make everything about herself.
I'm so beyond over it.

I will never be good enough and I'm done trying

Posted on Tue, Oct. 16, 2018 at 07:03 am

From the very beginning, you didn't like me and I have no idea why. You embraced your other children's spouses and welcomed them into the family with open arms - even your daughter's alcoholic, unemployed husband - but I was never made to feel included. I am educated, successful, and provide a wonderful life for your son and our child, yet you treat me like dirt. I have no idea what I ever did wrong and how I deserve this.

Is it because your son and I are independent? We don't need your help, money, and babysitting like your other children do? Are you at a loss for how to deal with us because you don't have that leverage for exerting control in our lives? I've spent years trying to come up with an explanation.

You go on family vacations with your other children and grandchildren and don't invite us; you talk to your other children daily and go months without contacting my husband. (You only speak to him when he calls or texts you - when he got tired of being the one to do all the work, communication ceased.) You're super-involved with your other grandchildren, but take no interest in our child, who barely even knows you at this point.

I've tried so many times to start over with a clean slate. I've tried to let go of my anger. I've tried and tried and tried, but for whatever reason, you just seem to not like me. So I'm done.

You don't want to visit your grandchild? Then we're not going to visit you. You don't want to keep in contact? Then we're not making the effort to keep in touch with you. I realize now that this is your loss, not ours.

Goodbye perfect inlaws

Posted on Mon, Oct. 15, 2018 at 05:51 pm

Dear MIL here is your MOTY and GMOTY award, a flaming pile of crap. Although you want to pretend like we are all so important and you are just the shining matriarch of this family you do not get to tell me during every conversation how busy you are and how you never have free time for anything while blaming me for never calling you with offers to pack up my three young children and travel to your house. I can not wait to move so far away from you to be closer to my own sweet dear mother who is everything a mother and grandmother should be, helpful, loving, and most importantly willing to spend time with her grand children as much as she can. I really hope your spoiled daughter (SIL) and her spoiled offspring give you all the affirmation you need of just how shitty you are. I hope you understand how much this is all your own doing by repeatedly giving SIL any and everything she could possibly want while throughing your son to the wolves. I promise your lessons as a mother have been heard and remembered with explicit detail so I know how not to treat my own sons. And guess who won’t be coming to your rescue, your little boy who you verbally and physically abused and treated like 2nd class for years who now fully sees no matter what he does, says, no matter how hard he tries SIL will always be your golden child and he will just be the other child you had who just can’t ever quite match up to your beloved daughter.
And yes I know I keep telling you that we will come back and visit you frequently but I’m secretly hoping you never take us up on our offers to come visit us when we move so I don’t have to feel guilty for never having the time to visit you; because even though I hate you I still want to try to see whatever sliver of good in you. I don’t think I will worry too much considering your inability to visit when we are a few towns away, never mind several states away.
And dearest SIL I hope I never have to see your fat, judgements, selfish, spoiled, self centered ugly face in person again. I know how much of an inconvenient “noise” my children are to you so I’d hate to make you suffer through them. My only wish for you is that you find how difficult being a parent really is when you can’t pass your child off to another babysitter, nanny, or who ever while you go on yet another vacation. And while I would NEVER fault a mom for doing what she needs to do to provide for her family or to remain mentally and physically fit for her own self care and wellbeing, I have the strongest suspicion that your children are nothing more than a status to you for your yearly holiday card to show just how awesome and perfect you are. But that’s ok, keep judging everyone and everything around you, overeat and drink heavily; I’m sure those aren’t signs of you covering for how miserable you really are and how black your heart is.

My MIL is a horrible person

Posted on Mon, Oct. 15, 2018 at 11:57 am

My MIL is a horrid person, who makes Disney's Ursula seem attractive and kind.
Every time she has seen me over the years, she makes snide comments about my weight. She likes to pretend that my house smells, that I smell, that I can't cook or clean, pretty much anything that her small mind can come up with as an insult.
The worst of it is that when DH talks to her on the phone, she tries to convince him to cheat on me! Telling him to have an affair because he "deserves better." She is a hateful, horrible human being. What mother wants her son to be a creep? What grandmother wants her grandkids to grow up in a broken home? My MIL does, that's who!
But the joke is on her! DH has been in intensive therapy and realizes now that his disgusting pervert mother wants emotional incest with him. 🤮 I have decided to take a job on the other side of the country and we are moving far from her. She will never have our address or our new phone numbers!
The ridiculous woman does not know that I am pregnant, which is why I'm slightly heavier now. She does not know that her son quit his job years ago because I make more than him, and that any messes at home are due to his housekeeping, not mine! She is the biggest fool and I am so happy to be rid of her! She won't know we're gone, out of her life forever, until it's too late.
She will live and die alone with only her repulsive fantasies of being her son's only love. 🤢 🤣

Sure. Please Visit!

Posted on Sun, Oct. 14, 2018 at 02:45 pm

In-Laws, please take note: I am HOPING that you come visit again. Yup, that's right.

If you like spit in your drinks, come visit me.

If you want your sheets to be "accidently" musty and moldy, please start making your plans. If you want my favorite friends to pop by every single day to act loud and ignorant, go ahead and check your calendar.

If you'd love to arrive and have all of your grandkids whisked away immediately afterwards by my dear and loyal friends, sports events, scouting trips, and church activities for the majority of your time here, call your travel agent.

If you want my husband to have zero time off to spend with you (I'm great friends with his boss and will make SURE he's kept busy during your stay - and bonus points: we'll enjoy the OT checks!), then start packing your bags.

See, I'm not the least bit afraid to have you in my house. And you can be sure I'll stick around and shoot you the same rude sneers that you all love to give to me. I'll give you the same silent treatment whenever my sweetie leaves the room that you do. I'll play favorites. I'll remark on your cooking, your looks, your job, etc just like you do to me...making it seem like I'm just "curious", just like you do.

I'll be MORE than happy to receive you lovely people. But just be aware that there may be several surprises to give you plenty to talk about when you go back home. I mean, you were going to talk smack about me anyway, but THIS time I'm planning to give you PLENTY to talk about.

Bless your soul and I hope to see you soon!!!!

Never the right one

Posted on Sun, Oct. 14, 2018 at 10:53 am

I just lost a dear sweet family member. She was so loved by everyone. She had a good sense of humor, always happy. She died unexpectedly from a brief illness. I lost two other family member this year. These people were loved and I'm not saying that because they were family members. There were so many notes and cards and 100's of FB postings about how wonderful they were.

Then there's my mil. She's very passive aggressive. She says horrible mean things. She has also done something that could have put my life in danger but of course she was 'just joking' (her passive aggressive behavior is evil) She plays favorites and lets you know you aren't it. Well she is in her mid 70's and doesn't have one health problem.

The nice people die young and the mean old ones just keeps kicking literally and figuratively.
