Just smile and nod. Some people are who they are and will always be that way no matter how infuriating it may be. I know how hard it is to be passive, but it isn’t worth the fight. Sorry, he doesn’t sound like good company!

Have you ever seen the movie Big Fish? Your Father-In-Law sounds a lot like the dad in the movie. If you haven’t seen it I would definitely recommend it! I think its a great movie. (And it might help you understand him) 🙂

@SarahSmilesDec28:  It could be worse.  Some Future In-Laws are bigots and racists.  Who cares if he tells tall tales.  Just think of him as a story teller, lol-get a kick out of it instead.  My daughter is a fun story-teller– she doesn’t embellish–she clearly tells extremely tall tales for fun, which she calls “true story”-and yes, they are truly stories, lol.  Although maybe extremely gullible people believe them. 😉

Yep, smile and nod. 

These people don’t even realize they are stretching the truth because they do it so often and for so long.

Sing songs in your head, write poems in your head, take control of the conversation, whatever!
