  • My MIL drives me nuts. She just has no censor and tends to say whatever comes into her mind, which when it comes to me seems to be bad. She makes "put downs" and tries to do it in a silly voice so no one will call her out on it. She's also passive/aggressive and she just drives me completely crazy! She called me a "milk machine" when I nursed my newborn son and when I had my daugher (two days afterward) and she was fussy in the hospital, she said in a child's voice, "Your mommy can't make enough milk for you. Your mommy is just going to starve you!" over and over again. I wanted to slap her down, but she was watching my then 17mo old son. It's almost like she can't help but put me down in some way with her comments. She's pushy, intrusive and just nervous and annoying. Ugghhh!! lol
    How do I handle it? I don't! Whenever I bring it up to my Dh, he completely has a meltdown and makes me out to be the bad guy so I just keep quiet

  • Nothing real serious (that I'm willing to share) but at the mall I accidently stepped on this woman's foot and she just hissed at me and had the ugliest expression on her face, she said something under her breath. All I said to her was, "excuse me". She kept on going about me stepping on her foot so I kindly said, "I cannot rewind time and take it back, so let's just move forward."

  • YES!!! I call them Negative Nancy and Debbie Downer...and I stay as far away from this as possible. They are the most neagative, hateful, pessimistic women I know and I want nothing to do with them. I only choose to surround myself with positive people.
