FMIL is so annoying and rude and I don’t understand the point of any of it! Every Tuesday FI and I buy our dinner, like popeyes, pizza, taco bell, etc. Well yesterday FI’s brother had a minor back surgery and his mom had to take him to the hospital and the plan was that she was going to take him home and have dinner at his house, FI asked his brother if he wanted him to come over after work and have dinner with him as well but FBIL said no because he probably wouldn’t be very good company. FI is fine with this and tells him he will bring him dinner later in the week to see him. FI and I keep our usual plans and are looking forward to having the house to ourselves for the night.
I got off work before FI as usual and went straight to his house as usual. Well I had a really exhausting day so I ended up taking a nap when FI said he would be working a little late. Well a few hours later FI wakes me up and I hear people in the living room, FMIL and FBIL changed plans and decided not to go to his house so he, his wife and son came home with FMIL. I had no idea because I was dead to the world and they didn’t wake me up when they got home.
Before I get to the problem I will admit that I was overly emotional because of PMS, being very tired still, and starving at that point. But FI was totally prepared for this because he knew about the PMS and assumed the other two, I just want to shout out that he is the most understanding person and I love that he can handle me and help me past my crazy.
So his family decided to order Chinese for dinner… I hate Chinese food, they all know this. So you think go to the fridge and make something, but I had looked for a snack earlier and knew there was no food in the house (maybe there was some food but nothing that I like). I instantly burst into tears, it was my breaking point, I was hungry and the only food available I didn’t like. FI quickly calms me down and tells me we can go get me McDonalds. Well now I feel bad because he now feels the need to leave the house to get his crazy FI food. He assures me that he doesn’t mind at all and kind of figured he would end up going to get me something because of how much I hate Chinese. He leaves the room while I get myself together because his family doesn’t need to see my crazy, that is reserved to him and my closest family.
I go out to the living room and its silence; they all say nothing to me. We get to the car and FI starts going off. “She’s such a bitch… Why does it matter what you eat… They’re the ones who changed plans… It’s none of their business… I can’t believe her…” and so on. It turns out when FI told them we would be gone for 15 minutes to get me food she told him that this night was about his brother and why did he have to be so whipped and give into me all the time and he should be focusing on his brother, made him feel like crap. FI’s brother was sitting on the couch half asleep and asked FI if we could grab him a McFlurry.
She did not talk to me all night and kept giving me dirty looks while I was eating. If I didn’t want to see FI so bad I would have left. Apparently she said something after I left too about him being whipped (he’s like the least whipped guy ever, if he doesn’t want to something he won’t do it). She was still commenting on it this morning! Like get over it!!! You changed plans on us and then decided to get food you know I hate and you are seriously going to be mad that we left for 15 minutes to get me food that I could enjoy and we brought his brother a McFlurry so we still did something for him and her whole problem was that supposedly I turned his night into my night. Um… I didn’t realize disappearing for 15 minutes to get food and bringing back a McFlurry for him turned it into my night.
I was already in an icky mood last night and she made it 10x worse and she won’t let it go; I just don’t understand what is going through her head.
