Chiming in a little late here….but Future Mother-In-Law is well…interesting….she is also an alcoholic (pretty severe one….were talking jaundiced most of the time…liver shutting down as we speak, but she refuses to stop drinking, hides it, sneaks it, because she deserves it….last nights excues was “well i deserve a drink because i cooked dinner and took a shower, and my life is stressful”, she doesnt work, doesnt have to do anything besides groceryshopping and housework…..)
so here are a few gems:
-Well i dont think that you guys should rush into marriage, you havent been dating that long (uhmm try 5 1/2 years at this point), followed by well how long has it been? oh well thats too soon….(uhmm hi, your perfect daughter got married 3 years in, and both her marriages were at the under 1 year mark from first meeting to wedding but yeah 5 1/2 years being older than anyone in the family who has gotten married, supporting ourselves since we were 19 and 20, but yeah, really rushing it let me tell you since were not engaged yet)…
-I just wanted to let you know that your christmas gift from Future Sister-In-Law looks really cheap because we didnt want to put our last name on the stamp with your first initial, since you guys arent serious yetl and we dont remember how to spell yours…(this was last christmas a few months before our 5 year anniversary, we were living together, and its no secret marriage is ahead)
-Ooooohhh dont make Mr.Kansas_nurse’s eggs like that, his ex-girlfriend made them like this and he likes that better…he only eats them poached (uhhmmm actually your son hates poached eggs, he only eats them over hard…thank you), followed by, Well, i really dont want to bring this up but Future Father-In-Law and I think you guys need to have a little physical space around us, since it makes us uncomfortable…(we were standing side by side and holding hands with like 1 foot of distance between us)
-the first time the woman ever laid eyes on me, she announced, that if she found any of my underware in SO’s things that she would see that he returns them to me if we ever bump into each other again….(we had just started dating….like 1 month in)….
the list goes on and on…..and she likes to make assumptions about my family….which are not true just because she thinks she understands my family
-oh and todays gem….(she said this too SO), well Future Father-In-Law and I need you to come over and work on our yard and spend time with us, we understand that kansas_nurse has to work the next 3 nights (which means i will see him about 5 minutes each morning untill im off this stretch), but our yard needs it, and you can not pick kansas_nurse over us on this, (they had a whole 20 leaves in their yard, and of course they wanted it done when i had to be asleep for work tonight, and he is still over there working on it for 5 hours of their crap(they are both able bodied, and just like to make him do shit)), and if he dosent do something because he is doing something with me then he is a shitty son and i am a controlling B word….
-the one that takes the cake for the week (yeah with her they go by week), was when talking about the trip that SO and i are supposed to be taking to see some ailing relatives of his, we postponed a week,because they begged us to wait until they could go with them, and of course then last week, Future Father-In-Law had to work extra and Future Mother-In-Law had a “fat day” went on a bender, and now its postponed again….well, apparently i am a bad person, because the trip we were supposed to take 3 weeks ago, falls during my little sisters final homecomming dance, and 3 choir performances and a musical, and i refuse to miss her last musical, and i have had tickets for SO and I for 2 weeks since they went on sale, and they knew about it, and now im horrible because i am “making him choose”, when his relative arent going to drop over tomorrow, they are ill but we talk to family everyday who take care of them, and they are just sick and getting older and both are recovering now, but they are supposedly “dying this minute”, and im a bitch, because SO said apparently its not that urgent since we last postponed for a “fat day”, so now im am forcing him to pick me, when i told him he could go with out me, and him and i would go later….i was informed, that since her fave store ironically near the family, is having a big sale this next weekend….that “well kansas_nurse is being selfish, why should her family be more important than Mr.Kansas_nurse comming with us and going shopping with me, because we need to see family, and this is just wrong that he would do something with her family over us….its just wrong”…sigh….i just cant win….
ps: great thread…its nice to know im not alone….fyi these are alot of her more mild statements, ive been called the devil because he wanted to come be with me after my sister died, because they had wanted him to help re-shingle the roof, and clean the house….
