The witch of a MIL is back.
We haven’t had any contact with my MIL since our wedding day mess with her. She attempted a few times to contact us after the wedding with her continued nasty behavior and we never responded to her at all. I’m not sure if she got the hint that we have completely cut her out because in the last few months we haven’t heard a peep from her. Thanksgiving came and went with no word, so we thought we were in the clear. However, the day after Christmas my DH get’s 2 voicemails from her on his work number (which he never gave her the number and told her many times NOT to call it) however she left this ranting voicemails about how horrible we are and that she would love nothing more than to beat DH until he was black and blue (yes this was her exact words). NUTSSSS! Anyhow, we completely ignored her VM, I then come into work this morning and get an email only to me from her that says “Handout” Please Pass Along J
She attached a PDF document on passive and aggressive behaviors and what they say about that person and how that person mistreats people. I kid you not it’s her in everyway. However, I’m SURE she is sending this to me in her way of saying this is you, so what do I do. Do I ignore her? Do I respond back to stop sending her junk to my work email and stay out of our life, or do I respond back something really nasty like maybe you will realize one day your this person they are talking about!

Ignore it and see if she sends you something back. If at that point she does…then respond back and say DO NOT send to this email. You can also block her emails. Sorry you have that bad of a MIL!

If I were in your shoes I would just ignore her imo ingoring people is a lot worse to them then replying it makes them sit and wonder what you are thinking and you will never give her the satisfaction of knowing she ruffled your feathers if you don’t respond. I have a mean and nasty sil and borderline mean and nasty mil and I just never respond even when they say mean things to my face I just walk off, it always makes them look dumb and I never say anything that they can throw back in my face.

I agree with PP … ignore it. I’d make sure and keep it tho, but do not respond. I’d block her emails too.
At least you had two nice peaceful holidays.

Yeah I know your all right, well my sensible side knows your right 🙂 I’m sure she is just looking to start drama and the fact that for the last 5 months we have completely ignored her, it’s driving her nuts.

The only way to get people like this to leave you alone is to ignore, ignore, ignore! Eventually they’ll get frustrated with the lack of response…that’s all she’s looking for is a response….and so they’ll give up.
