Oh…I have a goodie.  FMIL came over, and I made her a great lunch.  We looked at our engagement pics, and she critiqued every one and said she didn’t like the “artistic form” of most of them–whatever that means.  She proceeded to complain to us about how the ink ran a little on our invites (happened in the mail) and even brought the evidence.  Then we gave her a camera because we thought it would be nice for her to take pics for the wedding.  She looked up, disgusted, and asked us why in the world we would think she would want something like that, told us she wasn’t taking pics at the wedding because it would ruin her fun, and threw the camera on the table.  Who refuses a gift?!

@nevjcu: Meowkers raises hand.  My FMIL has critisized every gift I’ve ever given her.  The lady has no manners.  For Christmas I went out of my way to find her special chocolatefrom my country.  Her response? why did you get these for me?  it’s going to ruin my teeth.  When I made a pie for Thanksgiving her responses was “we already have a pie.  two pies is too many”  A beautiful lace tablecloth for her oddly shaped dinning table which took me hours of running all over the city to find? “none of my napkins will match this”  OMG the lady needs to be given a lesson on proper manners and how to accept a gift.  That’s a lesson my parents taught me when I was 5!  

ok i’m sorry i totally hijacked this thread.  this just hits really close to home and drives me CRAZY!

Ahhh. This makes me feel better. This was my first Mother’s Day as a mom. I had to work all day and we went to FIL’s house for dinner. FMIL never even wished me a happy mother’s day, almost started crying about her fears that my son will never learn to use silverware because I feed him with a spoon still, proceeded to give him SPICY RIBS and greasy potatoes (he’s 10 mos old) and then yelled at us because we set her gifts on the coffee table and didn’t put it directly in her hands.

She also opened the gift that FH’s brother and his gf got her and thanked FH and his brother for it.This is not the first time this has happened.

What, Sunday was Mother’s day?! My FMIL did not acknowledge that I am even a mother. Even though FI and I have a child together!

sending hugs for everyone having a wicked witch for a fmil or mil or inlaws.  My mom went through much of what you do (she had to dealt with my witchy aunts).  Just continue to kill them with kindness, you’ll be the bigger person!  Good luck!
