I’m living with my sister in law for a while- until hubby’s transfer next week. She’s prettier, younger, thinner, more stylish- just about perfect. She knows it and is always rubbing it in.
How do I deal with it? I’m 5 ’10”, 175 pounds, a size 10 and I hear “if I was your size I’d take drastic lifestyle changes”
“Great you can make me look better”
I understand he’s not going to like me more then his sister- but I feel like crap. Moving isn’t an option.

@MissFireFlower: You sound like you have good proportions for your height!! Her bitchiness will bite her in the ass one day… guaranteed.

@MissFireFlower: Be thankful you’re not a mouthy ass like her? WHO SAYS SHIT LIKE THAT?
Size 10 is perfect. Don’t change for some shrew.
When she talks just roll your eyes and gag. Or start making a face whenever she talks. Convince her her breath is bad.

Looks can fade, but an ugly personality is forever. I think you’re gonna come out on top, in this case. Her behavior is that of a jealous insecure person.

@MissFireFlower: she is only saying this stuff to you because she is jealous. seriously. she may be pretty, but she is obviously unhappy with her life, and she is taking it out on you, because she wants what you have- be it a great job, or a wonderful marriage, or all of the above.

@MissFireFlower: If moving isn’t an option, you still need to politely but firmly assert yourself. Even though you’re a guest in her home, you should speak up when she says things like that. A short “I don’t appreciate when you make comments like that on my appearance” should suffice.
To be honest, it’s the girls with nothing else going for them that always feel like they have to put others down to make themselves feel better. She may have her looks, but it sounds like she could be insecure about other aspects of her life. Don’t let her get to you.

@MissFireFlower: holy frig.. she actually says those things?? The names I’m tempted to call her right now aren’t really appropriate to type in full so I will just say I’m sorry you’re dealing with this!! I hope something comes up and you get to move sooner than planned!

She sounds like a narcissist.

With everything goinI on like our move and the shift in child custody ( every other weekends son was with dad- now its half of summer and half all holiday breaks) I’m a wreak. I’ve never been without my son for more then 5 days. I’m going on week 3 with 3 more to go. Plus no husband. And it’s a whole new state an I don’t start work until September. I’m watching my other sister in laws baby for free so she can save on childcare, as a favor. I really wish I would have told her no.
These 2 weeks were supposed to be my adventure with my sil’s. it’s turned into a nightmare.

omfg that is so incredibly rude! Who says that! You’re not huge at all – and even if you were… who says that?!?
I’m so sorry that you are dealing with no hubby and no son AND a bitchy SIL! *hugs* I guess just try to ignore her/stay separate from her as much as possible.

I saw your recap pictures, and you are downright GORGEOUS! Don’t you let her make you feel inferior, she obviously has no class and some serious issues if she feels the need to put you down! Good luck, and hopefully the time passes quickly!

Welp, she sounds like she’s got the personality of mold, which is a wee little bit more important than all that superficial stuff, so you’ve got her beat there. And you can always point that out after one of her shockingly rude remarks. Why did your brother marry her? Is she two-faced and fake with him, or does he think mold is something he needs in his life, for the rest of his life?
She also sounds pretty miserable to be making comments like that. Happy people don’t talk that way to their SIL.

Oh whoops, I see she’s your husband’s sister, not brother’s wife. Lemme guess, she’s unmarried? 😛

Ignore her, your husband picked you there is a reason for that, despite what she feels are her superior physical traits.
If seen this from thin pretty girls before and its an indicator that they are very insecure, mean and usually end up having the personality of a stick if broccoli.
