He punched a hole in the wall over lasagna?

I cannot say that I see a difference between pizza (logistics aside) and frozen lasagna being served. If you feel so strongly about the rehearsal dinner, you probably need to handle it yourself.

Father-In-Law was totally clueless about the Rehearsal Dinner. He basically told us to plan it and ask for his credit card when we were ready. The last thing I wanted was to plan something else but if I’d left it up to Father-In-Law or even Darling Husband we wouldn’t have had a rehearsal dinner.

@Ellegee:  Right?  I mean, the ONLY difference between pizza and lasagna is one has crust and the other has pasta…if we’re willing to heat up frozen lasagna in the full kitchen at the venue…why are we so set against heating up a few pizza’s?  It defies logic….

Yeah the drama sucks.  How’s FI’s hand?

Your FIL’s gave you the option they are willing to spring for…. I think hit COSTCO and get some lasagna’s.

 

@Nona99:  thanks for making me spit water all over the desk lol

yeah… I think you both need to take a step back from this. Is frozen lasagna really all that different than pizza?? And it would still probably be fine when it got there

it is very hard to deal with that. sorry that you have to go through that over a few LASAGNAS!

I do understand you not wanting pizza and that you would rather pay for it yourself. Your Fiance just sounds upset that his parents are not contributing like he thought they should have. 

 

(PS pizza near me pizza costs about 20 a pie- and you would have to get a MINIMUM of 8 +  for people to get 2 slices each that would cost the SAME OR MORE)

I’m having pizza at my rehearsal dinner. My in-laws will be there and I’m paying for it, and my walls are all intact. Gotta learn to pick your battles.

@Ellegee:  Either that or delivered lasagna…..does that EVEN exist, cause that would rock!  How would you even order that?

Hello?  Little Italy?  I’d like three buckets of lasagna and a box of your finest wine!

God that would be amazing!

Now you have to pay for lasagne AND a new wall. Certainly is drama city.
