I’m currently visiting my parents, and last night my mom told me something that just put me into a rage. Conversation had turned to my previous marriage, and I was sharing that moving in with my ExILs was the worst decision and basically was the killing shot for our already suffering marriage. (Note: Obviously, it turned out NOT to be the worst decision in general because I wouldn’t be marrying the man of my dreams now if events didn’t unfold as they did. However, it was the worst decision for that marriage.) She then tells me that after we had broken the news to our parents, his mother had called my mother and ranted to her! ExMIL semi-yelled at my mom about how terrible this was for her son and what was I thinking and was I even thinking and that how could I do this to him at his age and now he has to start all over and on and on. Bees, I was so angry I actually dropped the f-bomb in front of my mom as in “What the FUCK? Who the FUCKING HELL does she think she is?!” That doesn’t usually happen.
Anyway, as it is now years after the fact, I obviously can’t just call that crazy piece of shit up and yell at her now. However, I can’t get this off my mind, so I’m ranting here to all of you to just get it out.
Oh my fucking word, you ridiculously passive aggressive, hyper controlling, “helicopter parenting your 40yr old son,” narcissistic, manipulative, deceitful, emotionally abusive, heinously rude piece of shit!! I knew you were a pathetic bitch with your head up your ass, but I thought you had some modicum of self respect. You seriously fucking called my mother! MY. MOTHER?! Like I’m some wayward child who pushed your kid on the playground?! That’s so fucking pathetic that there are no words low enough to describe. No wonder your son is an emasculated, spineless twit who can’t even decide on a fucking sandwich from Subway without help. He told you EVERYTHING about the breakdown of our marriage, and you STILL felt the need to “tattle” on me or whatever. Did he tell you that YOU were the biggest reason we fell apart?! The fact that you inserted yourself into any and every situation and drove a wedge between us that couldn’t be overcome? The fact that your precious little baby boy was more afraid of you than in love with me? Fuck you. I’d spit on your right now if you were in front of me unless you were on fire. Do not EVER presume to contact my parents again for any fucking reason. So help me God, if you do, I will fly all the way to Toronto just to slap your pinched up little rat face. Eat a bag of dicks you worthless whore.
Thank you for listening. That felt good.

@HisMoon: I dated a guy for three years that suffered largely from mommas boy syndrome. his mom was inevitably the reason we broke up. he also couldnt do a thing for himself ( he went to the ER 3 times from dehydration. the kid seriously couldnt even drink enough liquids!)
I’m so sorry your exMIL was so childish and psycho she had to drag your mom into her frustrations (and ultimitely your business!) women like that give me anxiety.
p.s. your post made me ready to take charge against idiot mothers!

Love this. Well done. Do you feel a little better now?

Thanks, ladies 🙂 I wasn’t sure what to expect after posting this, but I just had to say it somewhere public. Man, I’m just so blown away that a grown woman thought that kind of behavior was okay.

That was an amazing rant! I bow down to you. Honestly, read this whenever you are not fuming and you will see the comedic brilliance of the rant. I almost peed myself over “I would spit on you right now if you were in front of me unless you were on fire”. Died.

@HisMoon: That was possibly one of the best rants I’ve ever heard and definitley gave me a little chuckle at my desk! Bravo! I’m glad you no longer have to deal with her! lol

I’d so want to send her a mirror with a note, ” and now you know why our marriage failed.” great rant!

@minipenguin: I’m apparently hilarious whenever I’m angry. Unfortunately not so much when I’m actually just trying for funny, lol. Now that I’m calm, I am kind of giggling a little.
@lia22: SO much better. I’m so glad I have a safe place to be able to let that out rather than walking around having it percolating in my head and eventually leading to a drunken email to ExH or something. Eek!

@HisMoon: Awesome rant! I would’ve said the same thing!! And FWIW, I’ve been accused of being hilarious when I’m angry and start ranting. Fiance says I’m ‘adorable and cute’ when I’m pissed, which makes me go off even more. We can’t win!

I thoroughly enjoyed that! I had a similar rant when my Future Mother-In-Law called my mother to bitch about me a couple of years ago. Isn’t it nice to dream of saying it to their face?

@HisMoon: Fantastic rant! I thoroughly enjoyied reading that, actually. Sucks that your first marriage broke, but you got a winner this time round! 😀 I can’t believe she called your mom, I really hope your mom put her in her place.
