judgment call what would of you done?

its snowing and high winds where im at 30 to 40 mhr winds with up to 50 wind gust from the north, we have a large patio door on the west side of the house and how our house sits its angled towards the NW and we have no trees or anything to block the wind. the dining room floor was like waling on ice it was so cold. so i took the old queen size comfort and put it over the door with nails, well here is my problem, we got a new king size bed so had to get new bedding and my mother in law wanted the queen stuff, she was suppose to get it 2 months ago, after the first 2 weeks of her not showing up i stuck in the garage and been there since. i know if she finds out i hung it up over the door she will have a fit. what would of you done? i had nothing else to put over the door

  • I'd probably have done the same thing. Frankly, folks who get stuff for free need to be swift in their removal of said free stuff, or never complain about the condition it ends up being handed over in.

    If a comforter had spent the last 2 months in my garage, cleaning it wouldn't have got the mold out of it. You want my stuff for free, better get it out of my way or I may very well think of something else to do with it.

  • your family being warm is more important IMO. Besides, if she REALLY wanted it, she'd have come gotten it already. I'm sure she'll still be able to use it, just wash it and sew any holes!

  • it's yours to begin with no? Then no worries, she'll get over it.

  • A lady who is a friend of mine, who also watches my son occasionally does that. Her door blows cold air in so she nails a sheet or a blanket over her door.

  • If she ever asks about it, say that you waited for her to pick it up. When she didn't, you found another use for it. Sounds like you found a good use for it, at that.

  • She did not come and get it. as long as it is still at your house, it is still yours. Do what you want with it. And do not tell her what you used it for if she ever comes and gets it.

  • Her loss. You're using it for something useful. She was letting it sit in your garage. NUff said!
