- Wedding: October 2011
Ok, so tis is a silly post, but I am genuinely curious why someone would do this, and what you would do if you were me.
So an IL (let’s call B) in the family makes it quite obvious they are not fond of me. Whatever. Despite all my efforts, and forgiveness, this person remains to be vindictive. Just when I start to think, ” Oh maybe, this person is actually going to be nice, the worst is over..” Bam! another thing happens, another passive aggressive way of making me feel like poop.
So basically this is what it is:
B came over to my Mother-In-Law a few months ago. The visit was, so-so, alot of what seemed like smirking occured, as well as partial ignoring, and blantant conversation changing when the conversation about my husband and I’s wedding would come up.(It seems like, B does not like when the IL’s have anything nice to say about us, always changing the subject abruptly). Anyways, after B left I noticed that only the pictures of me on my MIL’s fridge were covered up with magnets. As in full face coverup. Only my photos. I noticed these things because I always look at the pictures on the fridge, I love pictures. So immedietly, I think, “B did this!”, but my rational mind told me it could hve been a coincidence. Later that evening I go onto my MIL’s comp room, and notice my wedding picture is flipped down as well, and in all the time I’m ever there ( we spend alot of time there, as in every single week a couple days), I have never noticed this happen before. Yet, I give B the benefit of the doubt and figure, maybe it’s just coincidence.
However, before B’s visit again, last month I strategically places the magnets on the fridge to see if I was just envisoning such things. By this I mean every picture was centered, and each picture was held by a couple magnets, so no slippage could occur, especially not in the few days that B would be there. Well sure enough, the evening my husband I go down, the magnets, once again cover my face. UGH! lol
I didn’t say anything because I am a very peaceful non confrontational person, that does not want other people (not really B, but the rest of the family) uncomfortable. And I am really over it, I don’t care about B’s childish games, I still treat B like I do anyone else in my life, with dignity, love an respect.
But I can’t wrap my head around why B would do this, I think its extremly disrespectful, almost like spitting on someone, just not as blatantly obvious. Would you have said anything?
