That was funny as schitt. For everyone that is saying that it is immature, damn skippy it is! Sometimes, you have to respond with that especially with your children. True story. My aunt has a kid that was always biting people. Besides saying, *blank* we don’t bite people, my aunt never diciplined him. Ever.This kid was SEVEN at the time. Well, on a road trip he bit my BF (now husband), well my BF bit him right back! He never bit him again. I laughed at that too (and fell just a bit more in love). Sometimes you have to do that to children, young and old. They can only view their behavior as inappropriate when it’s given right back to them. But, maybe that is just how I’m going to raise my children 🙂

I have to say I agree. I don’t know the history between the OP and her stepdaughter, but I think the OP was rude and inappropriate.
My Mother-In-Law has made some rather nasty comments right to my face. I never respond to them because I want my in-laws to see that I have more class than my Mother-In-Law. I also do not want my in-laws to think I am an angry black woman, since I am the only black person my in-laws have ever been around.

I don’t have the kind of personality/moral code that it takes to not respond when someone is being disrespectful to me or ridiculous.
This doesn’t mean I’ll make a scene, swear at the person or get in some kind of loud argument with them. But I have no problem pointing out they are being ridiculous, especially with humor. I don’t think that’s rude or inappropriate at all.
Now if you’re openly mocking someone in front of family or in-laws – fine. But this was an email, a private conversation. Fair game, b*tches.
