@rollerskates:  haha my MIL is funding about 2/3 of our wedding.

FMIL “how are you going to transport the boutennieres?”

Me: “we aren’t having boutennieres”

FMIL: “what do you mean you aren’t having boutennieres?? what are the boys going to wear?!”

Me: “suits.”

that’s really the only one i can think of right now, she is a character though so maybe ill remember others.

My favorites were always delivered by DH. Example:

MIL: Insert crazy comment here

I don’t have any comebacks but this is between MIL and H.

H: We’re having the wedding on a Friday
MIL: Don’t you think that’s inconvenient for a lot of people? blah blah blah blah blah
H: It’s MY wedding…
MIL: IT’S YOUR WEDDING?!?!?????? [screams at H for an hour until he leaves. Then screams at him somemore for a few more hours when he comes back later in the day.]


MIL: Why don’t you like living with me? Is it because of the yelling?
H: Yeah
MIL: Everyone yells.
H: Not like you.
MIL: I’ll stop yelling, I promise.
H: It’s not that simple.
MIL: Well if that’s how you feel about me, I must be really pathetic. I should just kill myself.
H: Your epitaph will read, “She yelled.”
[they both laugh]
Me: Frown

Another response that H has had to MIL saying “everyone yells” is “tmsing doesn’t yell.” We have our disagreements and raise our voices sometimes but they diffuse and are settled very quickly. Of course she thinks we’re lying when we say we don’t fight.


MIL: Why does everyone hate me.
H: Do you want some cheese with that whine?


MIL: I’m having a heart attack.
H [to FIL]: So the dogs are out of food, we should probably get some today.
MIL: I just said I’m having a heart attack!!! [walks off in a huff. She always claims to be having a heart attack when you disagree with her or don’t pay her attention.]
