It's always been "her" world and we are just living in it and wish I could go back in time and smack everyone who allowed her to be this way. and before we go to the oh it's because she is old, think again, it's only amped up now that she is old.

When I was a teenager i bought my first "newish" car, it was 2 years old and I kept it really nice: my DF the sucker that he was would buy her a new car every 2 years-it was a running joke that he would buy her a new car and you wouldn't see her for 2 years until it was time to get another one-she was also a SAHM who didn't stay at home, cook,,clean, etc and I'm quite sure tv show married with children modeled Peg Bundy after her.

Anyway, so I get this car, a month later, it's time to buy the Queen a new one. she has him buy a sister model of my car but with all the bells and whistels, t tops digital read out on the console. she gets it and says: you know you wish you had this car and she wasn't trying to be funny.


When I became pregnant with DD, I was married, etc. I told my parents, DF was thrilled and he was such a great grandfather. Mom was like don't expect me to babysit um, let's see, let me think: would I trust her to watch my kid when she knew someone molest me, not tell my dad, and keep going over there? hmmm,think not. She has never babysat my dd, even after DF passed away, no way.


Fast forward: while exdh and i were still married, we had an arguement, he took my car-different car but this was special ordered and bought right before I met him-so mom is at the house, he comes back. crazy train tells him to leave and take my car WTH?! and it wasn't just the ex who told me, my mom admitted to saying it. I was like you crazy blank, that car was special ordered that I BOUGHT, by this time, my df had stopped buying her new cars and heaven forbid I should have anything "better' then the QUEEN. I got the car back with the windshield busted, but he paid for that too.


DF was diagnosed with lung cancer, I knew I had to take care of him, she flat out refused and would get mad that he couldn't wait on her hand and foot anymore. The last week he was alive, in the hospital, I went to see him and she called demanding i go back home, she"needed" me more, she asked him who would take care of her after he died and this wasn't an "oh, I just don't want you to die I don't want to go on without you thing, it was a " i have been lazy all these years and don't want to stop. I heard the whole thing. The last day of his life, he had me promise to take care of the "queen" and I have been for the past 7 years.

I"ve had my phone line taken out? why? 911 what is your emergency on a holiday? um, my DD doens't tell me she loves me, come make her and the only reason she called on a holiday, well the only friends she has left and who didn't block the number were with their family and they were too busy to listen to her throw me under the bus like she had done with DF while he was alive. Her nickname is Twister because she likes to twist stuff so people will go oh poor you.

So not to metion I can't stand cops, sorry but they are a joke around here and have never done anything to protect me. of course she knows i dont like cops, so she called 911. this happened a coupel times and they wold go oh she is old um yes she is old, but sharp as a freakin tack. new year's eve, she called the cops. Of course she is sneaky i am in the shower: my dog is barking outside, i don't like for him to disturb neighbors, i hear my DD say oh it's ok,he is outside. i walk down the hall in a towel soaking wet almost literally run into an officer thank god i realzied he was or he would hav e gotten a beat down.

he is like did u call, no i was in the shower hence wet. well mom is lying in her room like an invalid, but she can get up at 3 am and fix her food. Ma'mm what is wrong, queen: she won't tell me she loves me, well ma'mm we can't make her. Queen: ok, well she just punched me in the face OH HECK NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I said look at her, if I punched her she would be on the moon. he looks nothing no marks bruises,etc then he starts to give her a lecture, she tells him to get out.

She claims her 1st husband beat her, but no one in family saw any bruises and she would use the old my 1st husband made me cook and clean and if I didn't he would beat me tell my df and he would feel sorry for her and she didj't do anything around the house, he would dress me take me to school,etc.


What is funny: she has more rights as an "elder" then I do being my age, it is "acceptable" for her to say the things she does peopel think because "she is old, she doensn't know better? really? not every old person was sugar and spice when they were younger and now they are crazy.

So, she has my aunt and 1 friend left that will talk to her, so she wants to call, I dial the number of my cellphone and I am right there, and she has "thrown me under the bus in front of me, but if I am there I can set the story straight. Then when she did have "friends", say she called them they aren't home, she would call 3 or more times that day, then if they didn't call her back soon enough, their number gets scratched out. How dare they be out living their lives when they should be home waiting for her call. can you say Narcissitic personality disorder? i think you can.



And I am not a big I love you person to her because to her love =I will be your beck and call girl and I am not a child who has to do that anymore and if you say it then don't wait on her then you don't love me, guess not.

But yet, and the fact that neither my df and i thought she would live this long,no flames but she was always thought the first to go, I take "care"of her. cook, cause she doesn't and won't. clean, she pays my dd to clean her room for her. I have been there through pneumonia and surgery on her lung, broken hip, uti fall, all in all 3 rehabs in the past 7 years. I make sure she has her medicine, goes to the doctor. To do it all again, hmm nope I wouldn't.

And I hate when people go, oh you will have good kharma for it , um this is like pergorartory for me so anything after i think would be good. and I am having the house blessed after she passes away, because holy crap i could see her restless soul still callng my name through a door.

You need to put her in a home.

Thank you for informing us of this and for saving your boy from our treacherous succubus of a daughter."

Thankfully my MIL problems are more funny than harmful since DH has *always* stood up to her. Good thing because she has a whole truck load of crazy in her head.
The 1st bolded line is too funny. I totally get the succubus part. It's a running joke between DH and I that the kids get in on. Whenever the checkbook has to be cracked open and a check written out for something that I suggest, DH always jokes I am a succubus sucking the life outta him. Now that he has to crack that sucker open for things for DD, he calls her a succubus in training. Never mind that DS gets a free pass on anything that he does that cause the checkbook balance to go down.

For the 2nd bolded one, I'm thinking there's a whole lotta MIL's running around with a truckload of crazy in their heads, after reading these posts.

My MIL isn't mean/evil or crazy, but she's cornered the market on thoughtless and insensitive. The story where she told me about mothers needing their daughters is too long to get into (my own mother has been gone 12 years and I only have sons) right now. Suffice it to say, I'm sill hurt.

The shortest story happened on my birthday this year. She called the night before (my birthday was on Mother's Day this year so I assume she wanted DH and the boys to call her the next day) to say happy birthday and that she wasn't going to get me any more gifts. She and FIL decided that gift-giving should just be for the grandchildren from now on. I must say, I don't disagree with this plan. It makes perfect sense. What didn't make sense was calling me to wish me a happy birthday and announcing that I was no longer gift-worthy! Perhaps a conversation the week before or after would have been more tactful, no? I reminded DH the her birthday is coming up on Saturday. What he does with that info is his business!

Wow, I cannot believe some of these stories!! I thought mine were bad, but they're more just detached. Well, MIL is a major drama queen who likes all attention on her, one reason there is no way in hell we'd ever take them to Disney, EVER. She has more illnesses and "conditions" than you can shake a stick at. DH is an only child and our DD8 is their only grandchild, but they haven't seen her since Feb. Granted, they live 6 hours away, but that's only 6 hours! This Christmas will be 2 years since they've been in our home, we're always expected to go there for everything, but they rarely come here. Especially now that they have their dog, or DH's little sister as I call her. OMG, their world revolves around this dog! When we did see them in Feb. it was at Kalahari, they met us there for the weekend (went one day before us, drove right past our exit to go there one day earlier to "relax" instead of stopping off to spend the night and extra day with their granddaughter), and the whole weekend all FIL did was whine about how much he missed his "little girl" and how hard it was to leave her at the kennel. Finally after a few drinks I said something like "I really hope seeing your only grandchild for the first time in months makes up for not seeing your DOG for 3 days!". The last time we were at their home I kept thinking he was talking to DD because I'd hear things like "sweetie", "I love you", etc., hope, talking to the dog! They also let the dog have the run of the house, a springer spaniel that jumps all over people and when we had to contain her to one room of the house so we could eat one meal in peace, he apologized to her her, "daddy's so sorry, but you don't have to be in here long". UGH! Wasn't even in a crate, just in a room with a gate she could see over, so she continued to watch us and whine the entire time we ate. Yeah, in no rush to go visit again soon. I just feel so bad for DD, she ADORES them and really needs to have involved grandparents in her life. They NEVER call to talk to her, ever, she only gets to talk to them if WE call and put her on the phone and that only lasts a few minutes.

It was so weird, we were at WDW last week and I posted pics on FB at least once a day if not more and the ONLY ones MIL liked or commented on were ones that had DH in them, not the cute ones of just DD. I really believe she's still living in the past and DH is her little boy and that's the only image she wants of him. She is always talking about him as a child compares anything that's going on in anyone else's childs life to him at that age. Let it go woman!! No one cares when an almost 40 year old man got his first tooth!

We got an email in March letting us know the in-laws would no longer be able to give us AAA for our anniversary (in May) because they had to make drastic budget cuts. Okayyyyyyy, no big deal, we can afford our own AAA, but then a few months later bought a $27,000 camper to take to the lake, bombarding DH with texts and pictures of it. I don't care how they spend their money, but it was such a long, weird email about how tight things were and how gifts were going to be cut out. Like I said, drama queen! They had a little camper at the lake when he was growing up and like I said, I really think she's trying to recreate those days. I think they were miffed we chose to vacation at WDW instead of spending a week in their camper with them and the dog. Never gonna happen!

My cousin oftensends me horrible MIL stories, trying to recapture the crown from my MIL (he hasn't yet). Some things he's endured...

1. His MIL told her DD (at the time, it was his fiance) at their engagement party that she "looked like a (rhymes with pike)" because she wore pants and a shirt instead of a dress.

2. Demanded her DD (the bride) get laser tattoo removal prior to the wedding to remove her Air Force tattoo. She didn't have the surgery. Instead I went online and found a makeup company that specializes in covering tats. Oooh the MIL was so angry!

3. While my cousin and new bride were on their honeymoon, his new MIL and FIL BROKE INTO THEIR HOUSE to "clean it", and rearranged all of their furniture to MIL's liking. Cousin changed the locks when they got back and reamed the old bag out good.

4. The MIL at the wedding wore this gown that looked like a Disney villain. It was a cross between Lady Tremaine, The Wicked Queen and Cruella Deville. I pulled my cousin aside and begged him not to eat any apples!

The worst thing ever about my MIL... she is an identical twin.

Scares the heck outta me every time I see them together. I think the evil is multiplying itself. DH likes to joke around with his dad and ask why he had to marry the evil twin and not the good one?

(The story behind that one is... Good twin had a broken nose at a young age and a small bump on her nose when she grew. Evil twin had no such bump so FIL decided to flirt with the twin without the bumpy nose. At least he had the good sense to divorce her.)

OOOO I should scan a pic of my MIL from my wedding. I said she could wear anything but ivory since my mom & I were wearing that color, or black. Um...she got 2 dresses -the one for the wedding was IVORY - but you had to see the purse & shoes - striped rainbow like Toucan Sam's beak...then she changed into a SHORT BLACK dress for the reception. With her garter belts lower than the dress hem...um...can you say *****-ish?!?! Is it legal for me to post her pic on here?? Now I have to go find those pics.....

My MIL on our wedding night gave us an envelope with a letter in it telling us how important s*x(wasn't sure if I could put the actual word) was and a "how to" description. She isn't really evil or anything she is just not a nice person.

That's what he gets for basing his decision on looks.

I am reading this thread and thanking God every day for my late in-laws. They were great people overall. DH & I were very fortunate.
