Thank you all so much for your support. I really do appreciate it. I’m glad that everybody else in the world can see that isn’t funny. I feel like sending this thread to my inlaws to prove just how off their rockers they really are.
Update. In the following days I received TEXT “apologies”
20 Year Old Brother in Law – I would like to apologize for what I did. It was not meant to ruin you day or cause any damage, grief, or animosity. It was only meant to be a joke to welcome you into our family. I do belive that we went to far nobody new what to do so we just did anything we could think of and for that I am sorry.
These aren’t the words of a 20 year old that can’t pronounce competent. Apologies don’t count when your parents text them for you. Found out he was responsible for the carpet, PAM, urinating in the toilet bowl, moving furniture, etc.
18 Year Old Cousin – Hey you guys I’m really sorry about ur house we did not intend to Ruin anything.. and that was definatly not our idea.. we just wanted to have some fun.. please let me know if I need to help clean or anything… I. Gotta make it right with you both…I’m sorry ;(
This is the cousin that I’ve taken on shopping trips and am basically a mentor for. Nice half ass apology when she lives five minutes away and offered to clean up three days after the fact. She owned up to the dishes, flour, and taping things to the wall.
20 Year Old Cousin – Hey Kyleen and Travis. I just want to say how sorry I am for everything that went on the other night. Nothing at all was meant to hurt anything or more importantly you both. It was a stupid wedding prank I should have never been apart of. I realized this even before now. I’ve never been one to do this but it was even brought up and strongly suggested by several adults so it made it sound more ok. I am very sorry and will need to pay for what ever consequences may arise.
Almost believe this text. So if adults told you to jump into a shark tank you’d do it without thinking twice? Huh, you don’t even consider yourself an adult. That would explain some of your thought process. This was the cousin that declined the invite to the wedding then showed up and had the nerve to complain about food because she got a meal she didn’t like. Well, that would be why you RSVP so you can get a meal you want. Tried talking to her at the wedding and I’m surprised she wasn’t knocking out ceiling tiles her nose was so high in the air. Come to find out she was the one that trashed my closet and tampered with our printer cartridges.
DH and I have checked all of our vehicles (thankfully everything was safely in place) and plan on getting new locks on our house this weekend. Pretty pathetic that in rural Iowa we have to be worried about FAMILY breaking into our home more than we do random people. Really takes your sense of security away. Even before the wedding his family would go in streaks of being cordial to us than being bitter. I swear it depends on which way the wind blows. Shortly after we purchased our home (20 minutes from them) we pondered if that was really a good idea. At the time we both worked in the area now my job territory has shifted as has his. Hopefully when we get more paid off on the place moving will be an option. DH is definitely the one good egg in a rotten dozen. We still haven’t heard from the inlaws since DH sent Father-In-Law that text. In a sense I’m not surprised. I’d just love to go to their house when they’re at work and dump out all the contents of her closet and dresser drawers. I KNOW she would be crushed.
We can still press charges but at this point we got our ink cartridges to work and are going to work on our floors tomorrow and go from there. It’s all documented and we have pictures.
