Is there some more background behind this that you can share?  Did something happen?

If this came from the blue, I wouldn’t respond.  She sounds like she loves drama and you would only be feeding it at that point.  Also, remember, that anything you do respond with can be forwarded and altered.

Woah. That is one hot mess of an in-law!!! I’m glad you seem so calm about it! I do not think I could be calm. Dang.

I would also like to know what happened prior to this and if you have showed it to your husband and what was his reaction to it.

Did she really copy/paste it three times, or was that just an issue of getting on here?

Whoa!  Even once, I’m curious about the backstory.

I really can’t believe she wrote that… you have EVERY right to be really upset and to reply putting her in her place…

… but I really think you shouldn’t.

Older people tend to think they can say and do whatever they want, with no consequences. The truth is – when our relatives reach a certain age, we need to start treating them like children…

So I know it’s easier said than done, but I’d probably write something back like: “It was never my intention to upset you, I value your love etc etc”.

I know she’s absurdly wrong but I can’t see how you can reason with someone like that…

That is really wild. Sorry she’s being very dramatic. I guess you might need to call her and figure out why she’s so upset. She is his godmother, so it’s not going to go away.

I think part of her freakout is caused by the older generations lack of understanding of online social networking. They tend to take things much more seriously than they are intended and spin things out of proportion. I guess when you didn’t grow up with such media, and I was in college when it all started, it seems more serious.

Whoa.  What’s with it being repetitive?

WOW!!! Someone forgot to take their crazy pills today…kidding. I am curious to know what prompted this letter. It has to be more than just steaks and hotdogs. If I got this letter, I wouldn’t be so much offended that she’s basically said your wedding sucked, because to each their own. If she really wanted a nice one she can have her own or throw a party, right? I would be more upset that she called your Mom a non-chef for serving brats and hamburgers at your wedding. WTF?!

Unfriend immediately!! That or set-up your account so that only certain people see what you post to avoid stuff like this.

We do indeed need backstory.  WTF is going through her head?
