Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to high school. Sorry, make that elementary school. Primary school?

Seriously. It’s like some women just can’t find the Big Girl Panties section of the lingerie shop and just keep wearing those children’s Day of the Week undies. I mean, look, I’m sorry you have a perpetual frilly wedgie, but it’s really not my problem.

@7SEVENJ9: that’s the same reason I don’t have a lot of female friends either. I just can’t stand it!

OMG!  This sounds just like my FCIL!  She is so sensitive and emotional and literal that I sometimes wanna claw her eyes out over it!  Examples:

If I write something on FB, she automatically thinks it’s about her.  No kidding.  I write a status, then she and her family come over to the Future In-Laws to eat dinner, and as soon as she sees me she whips her phone out and says, “What’s this about?!”  Then, I have to explain the meaning of my status, and she goes, “Oh, well, I kinda thought it might have been about me…”  Wtf?! 

Normally, FCIL, her Darling Husband, and their daughter come over for Sunday dinner at the FILs’.  Not every week, though, and lately they’ve been blowing us off for some other relatives/friends of theirs.  Last week on Sunday, Future Mother-In-Law, Fiance, Future Father-In-Law, and I went to go surprise visit FI’s grandmother whose been sick with cancer.  It was a spur of the moment thing.  Future Mother-In-Law forgot her cell phone at home and I left mine in the car.  While we were at FI’s grandmother’s house, FCIL tried to call us.  Of course, we didn’t have our phones to answer her call.  Finally, she called Fiance and he told her that we were at his grandmas and would be home shortly.  When we got home, Future Mother-In-Law called FCIL and she said that they weren’t coming for dinner.  The next day, FCIL showed up at the house and came in.  She sat down on the couch and was like, “I tried calling all of you yesterday and no one answered.”  I explained to her (again) that we’d left our phones, and Fiance DID answer her the first time she tried calling him.  Then she said, “I just felt like nobody wanted us to come to Sunday dinner anymore, like you all just don’t want us around anymore because nobody answered the phone.”  OMG! 

Then, when we were at the beach last month, FCIL brought up the subject of my wedding.  She’d already asked to be a bridesmaid, volunteered her husband as Groomsmen and her daughter as Flower Girl.  So, she asked, “Should we come down a day or two before the wedding?”  I said, “Well, that’s up to you.  You probably should, but you definitely don’t have to.”  I understand that FCIL and her Darling Husband have financial troubles.  They barely make ends meet.  I did not want to make it a requirement for her to have to pay for two extra nights in a hotel, and take two extra days off of work if it wasn’t feasible for them.  I was trying to be considerate and NOT a bridezilla.  Well, a few weeks later, FCIL was like, “I felt like you were trying to say you didn’t want us to be apart of the wedding because you told me we could come down early if we ‘wanted’.” 

She is such a baby, and it is extremely hard to deal with, at times.  I can’t stand people that have to be coddled and over-extended to in order to avoid a completely unnecessary pity party.

I can totally relate to this story.. I’d probably be the one setting up the team (Ok, let me not kid myself, I KNOW I’d be the one setting it up)..

It could be that when you’re in charge of things like that, people (specifically other girls), have no idea that managing all this stuff is stressful enough. When you tell them how it is, it’s not meant to be personal or mean, you are just literally telling them how it is.

And then of course it’s super annoying when they act like you have something against them when you “sound like you have a tone,” when you totally didn’t.

Ok ok, I’m done, lol..let’s just say I TOTALLY get what you’re saying! 🙂 🙂

I think it sounds like she’s a little overly sensitive, but some people are just that way–maybe she isn’t intentionally acting immature/high schoolish, but legitimately wants to make sure she’s not intruding?

@7SEVENJ9: Oh man. That is annoying. I hate when people react like that. I used to say something but now I just ignore it altogether when I get a response like that.

@7SEVENJ9: Probably something to do with it. I have an older brother, and grew up hanging out with him and his friends a lot. I was tomboy until high school, so I am the same way you are. I just roll my eyes at people who are overly sensitive. Sorry you are that way, but don’t expect me to change to accommodate you and your feelings
