All of those things would drive me crazy, too! I cannot believe he told your baby to ‘shut up’. What??? I would definitely have flipped!! And he’s a minister?? Oh my gosh..

So sorry it was such a rough few days. ๐Ÿ™  I hope they leave soon!!  Love that you kept rewinding the movie so he had to watch more. hehe

This was my favorite part… “(To punish him I turned on the BBC version of Secret Garden and watched it in its entirety yesterday.  I even rewound it a couple times when he’d leave the room to get a drink.)”.

Well you certainly didn’t want him to miss anything! =)

I HATE parents who act the way your IL’s do towards your BIL. I know plenty of them and I always get the urge to kick them in the teeth!

When will you finally be rid of these people?!

Aww I’m so sorry to hear about your in-laws!  What a mess!

My Future Mother-In-Law fed my dogs her homemade apple cake one time when she came to visit, even after I repeatedly asked her not to since my dogs only weigh about 10 lbs and they can’t process all that sugar and oil.  Well, my fluffy little Pomeranian mix got the runs like crazy and it was all over his fur and my carpet, and of course Future Mother-In-Law just leaves as soon as she sees what happened!  Uhhh thanks, please don’t do that again!

I also found out on Christmas Eve that Future Mother-In-Law is not going to give us the $5000 she promised to give us in January as a wedding present/help to pay for the wedding.  She has a bad gambling addiction and I feel awful that she continues to destroy FI’s trust in her by throwing all her money into the slot machines.  She also told me she assumed my parents are rich and were just going to pay for whatever we needed if she didn’t come through.  NO, this is not true, my mom makes less money than she does, she just doesn’t gamble or shop all the time, and my mom is taking out loans to help us out with the wedding.

LOL, I just realized I’m just ranting about in-laws too.  But you’re not alone in having in-laws from hell.  Your Father-In-Law is a minister, but he is intolerant of Catholics and his gay son, he says inappropriate words to your child, and he plays COD for hours on Christmas–what a jerk!  That guy needs to be put in his place, and hopefully his place is at least 1000 miles from where you live.

Ugh, MS, that sounds miserable!  My relationship with my in-laws is not the best… luckily we only see them once or twice a year.  ๐Ÿ™‚  It sounds like it’s a couple of big things (who tells a baby to shut up?!!!) that makes all those little things that much more irritating.  They’re leaving soon, right?  When my in-laws visit, I always find myself happy the first two days, annoyed the next couple days, and then avoiding the house as much as possible the rest of their visit, just so I don’t have to see them.  Deep breaths, it’s almost over.

Oh my goodness, what a horrible experience. I can be very fiery when offended in such a way as you have been and I’m fuming for you. What awful in-laws. I find many “ministers” can be very hypocritical, and their skewed righteousness makes me angry. Just hang in there a little while longer, Mighty, and don’t do anything rash that you might regret.

Oh man.  I’m so sorry you’re so miserable but I totally started cackling when I read about the Secret Garden.  That was awesome.  Well done.  ๐Ÿ˜€  Thank goodness they’re leaving today!  That is asking to put up with entirely too much!

I loved the “Secret Garden” anecdote too!

Ugh…. Undecidedand I’m feeling you on the toilet seat issue. I only have a few things that I request in my home too, one of them is the toilet seat because our cat will drink out of the toilet!

And last time I checked, there are quite a few churches/houses of worship that send around a collection plate. Heck, my FH is a Unitarian and they pass around the basket there too!

I think my Future Mother-In-Law was a bit tipsy and was say all kinds of rude/classless remarks. I have been so sick and still felt like crap on Christmas that I just didn’t have it in me to comment on anything she said at dinner. FH on the other hand was SUPER annoyed.

Ahhhh….family! Tongue out

Oh boy!  I hear ya on having your fill on the In laws.  Last night I was def at my breaking point but good thing I could leave and go to be my house.  However, I think the thing that made me gag was on Christmas morning his dad had their dog sitting on the bench at the kitchen table WITH food out.  I walked in the room and the only place to sit was next to the dog.  MY FH aunt told the Future Father-In-Law to put the dog on the ground so I could sit down and instead just moved the dog over a little.  So I got to eat my breakfast with a dog head on my shoulder I found it very nasty. 

I HATE when people can’t listen to the few rules you have and I can’t believe that your Father-In-Law acted the way he did.  Happy they are going home today

That sounds really awful.  I am not sure what time zone you’re in, but it’s 11:40 here (eastern) and I hope you’re pacific time because I doubt someone is going to leave at 11:40pm.  I TOTALLY support you insisting on a hotel next time.  Can FH tell them it’s time to go?
