    I don’t blame you guys for being pissed! That’s NOT a prank. That is trashing your house!!

    WOW! That is not funny at all. I would be absolutely furious, especially since some of that damage is permanent! I mean seriously, they gouged the floors?! Personally I would have gone ahead and pressed charges family or not.

    Vandalism is not a prank, a prank is supposed to be fun – that’s just mean and cruel! I’m so sorry they did that to you and I honestly don’t understand what they were thinking?! I would have called a cleaning company, then asked them to pay for the bill and I would have brought it to small claims court if they refused to pay for it. I would also ask them to pay for the damages they caused as well as demand an apology. Honestly, I wouldn’t care how angry they would be at me – I would just not want people like that around me so if it were the end of the relationship, fine. Don’t let anyone make you think this was ok!

    @Cummins59:  Honestly I’d send them an estimate to have your house cleaned professionally.

    Wow that is SO uncalled for.  I cannot believe that they did that.  That is a complete disaster.  It would have been possibly, potentially funny if they just moved the plates around in your cabinets or TPed the living room couches or something, but it sounds like they went hogwild crazy in the worst way.  I don’t blame you.  I’m not sure I would have gotten the police involved, but I certainly would demand that they pay for the floors to be repaired (can they be sanded down and stained or are they really deep gauges and you need new floors?).  I’m so sorry.  🙁

    I don’t know that I would have involved the police, but, then again, my house hasn’t been trashed.  You have every right to be beyond angry.  What a terrible mess to come home to!  They should apologize and pay for all damages.  Plus help you on your next remodel project without  charge or complaint.

    I guess, if you are worried that they won’t cover the damages, it was probably a good idea to at least make a police report.  I’m so sorry this happened to you.

    I agree about making them pay for damages, professional cleaning services, and demanding a personal apology. That is extremely uncalled for. Not a prank at all. Thy are lucky you did not press charges.

    I would have called the cops too, I think. I’d be suing them for the damages to the floor as well. I’m 20 and at this age you are absolutely old enough to know better. What the hell?!

     

    Your husband’s family’s reaction is absurd. I’ve had the same thing happen though. FI’s little brother (15) tried to stab him, assaulted me and his older sister, so Fiance obviously called the cops. What else could have been done in that situation?! He was high as a kite and clearly dangerous. Anyway, FI’s mum has now disowned Fiance and his sister, and is obviously not happy with me either, she wanted to get restraining orders on all of us. The police told her she had nothing to warrant one, so it was dropped, but that was on christmas eve and she hasn’t spoken to any of us since. Some people think involving the police in family matters is wrong but seriously, in situations like these what do they expect?!

     

    I’m sorry they were so insensitive!

    If FI’s brother and cousins did anything remotely close to this heads would be fucking rolling!! I cant believe his family’s upset with you guys and were not there to help clean up such a vile disgusting mess!! At the very least they should have hired help to take care if it immediately upon hearing about it! Holy cheese n’ rice!! They absolutely should be he’d accountable and need to b. Held responsible for the reparation of the wood floors.

    im so angry and sorry this happened to you guys – and I don’t even know you!

    I’d make them paying for all the repairs a condition of not pressing charges. In addition, they should have to work off their obligations in some way – cutting grass, shovelling snow, raking leaves, or something. Think of it as being sentenced to community service.

    Honestly, I would have pressed charges. That is completely and totally unforgivable and not funny at all.

    That is completely unacceptable!!  I agree with PP that the pranksters should pay for all damage that was done to your house. I’m so sorry that you had to come home to that after your wedding day.
