@sara5ann:  Does he have other relatives he can ask for pics?  siblings? aunts, uncles? grandparents?

Maybe if she hears he is asking elsewhere it will embarass her into handing over the pics.

I don’t think I would include her anymore, it gives her too much power to bring you down.

@sara5ann:  YES! At first I wondered if my FMIL has a hard time remembering things or doesn’t listen, but I quickly realized it’s just one passive aggressive thing after another done intentionally. Whatever we ask for, she does the opposite.

Agreed with the other poster though – you’ve got to do the best you can to block it out – people are miserable and that’s why they do what they do, but it doesn’t  mean it has to bring you down. good luck!

@sara5ann:  Well, in the grand scheme of things, this isnt so bad. And it’s possible she really thought she was helping.

Either save yourself additional aggro and just use what she sent or have your FI call and ask explain you wanted the other pictures and ask that she send those.  She either will or she won’t.

sara5ann:  There are a few pictures that I have of my children that are really precious to me and I’d be so upset if they were ruined because I don’t have any other copies.  Maybe the pictures that you wanted are important to her and she’s afraid they won’t get returned.  Maybe they’ve become stuck to the inside of the picture frame and can’t be removed without tearing them.  Could you ask them to be scanned and emailed so that she won’t lose possession of them.  Could you scan them yourself?
