What to do with my SO's mother..

We've been staying at her house the past few months to save some money before the baby comes. Her & I get along great most of the time, but I have this problem with her: she keeps using my razor & I know she is, 'cause there are dark hairs left in it & I am very blonde. And not to be gross, but these hairs are totally pubes...what the hell do I say to her without being confrontational & embarassing her? She has her own razor, it's in the cabinet directly next to the shower, but for some reason continues to use mine...

  • You don't have to be rude, just change the place you keep your razors. Avoid the confrontation! I do anything to avoid arguments with my husbands mom.

  • I agree, don't say anything. Just leave that razor where it is & quietly start using a new one that you carry with you in & out of the shower. It is very rude of your MIL but isn't worth the hassle & embarrassment to confront her on it.

    Personally, I would be thankful that she left "evidence" for you to find. Think how much worse it would be if you didn't find out until later!!!

  • That's what I'm doing, I just feel like I want to say something to her, 'cause it is REALLY gross & I don't think it's fair that I should have to place my things in a different area, just because she likes to act like a 6 year old & touch things that aren't hers.

  • put it in a plastic bag and keep it in your room (like living in a dorm).

  • I agree with everyone else. Just put it in a different place. I hate it when my SO uses my razor, so I don't leave it in the shower anymore.
