Okay, I just need to get this out so I can move on. LONG – sorry.
My Future Father-In-Law drives me NUTS. Like I cant stand being around him nuts. He ‘works’ for himself and has done so for the past 25 ish years (after getting laid off) but from what I can gather (I would never ask so of course I’m doing a big no-no in counting other peoples money here) he contributes nill to his household. My Future Mother-In-Law is pushing retirement age and bless her heart works 12 hr days 6 days a week just to buy groceries. I can’t stand Future Father-In-Law and his laziness (sp?). Fiance grew up with very little because of this – government assistance etc… and for whatever reason this makes me LIVID.
Last time Fiance and I were at dinner at their house he (FFIL) dumped ice cubes on the TABLE (from the little tray thing) and with his visibally dirty hands (from working in the garage with gross old ‘antiques’ (i.e. junk)) grabbed them and said ‘someone take ice’. I politely declined after which he said ‘SOMEONE IS TAKING THE DAMN ICE’. Future Mother-In-Law put it in his drink thank God.
okay, 2nd vent.
My step-mother. My f(*& step mother. ISNT COMING TO MY BRIDAL SHOWER. Of course this is me being selfish (is it?) but I think that if she wants to be treated like family she should show up (more on this in a minute). Timeline – thursday night bridal shower; friday – rehearsal; saturday – wedding events. Keep in mind she can get off work no problem and my father and her have just decided to come friday instead. They are well aware of my bridal shower date. Also, after discussing my flowers with dad (who is awesome) and getting excited about them he calls me back 20 min later asking if Step mom can have a corsage. I’m sorry but she hasn’t helped with ANYTHING. Hasn’t offered any help and now wants a damn flower????! Okay. I told my dad fine but its bugging the heck out of me!
sorry for the long rant. I’m probably being selfish and immature. Just had to get that out in the universe!
