My husband's sister is evil. Her and her husband are very well off and they believe it gives them the right to act however they like. They came to my daughter's 6th bday party on Saturday where we decorated gingerbread houses (all 15 baked and assembled by myself). They complained about not having enough food so I had to order pizza. They complained about it being too cold in my house - although no one else did - so I turned up the heat. My sister in law made rude comments about me to my friends behind my back. Her husband sat at the kid's table dropping the F Bomb as well as other colorful language. He told my neighbor that her 3 year old son looked ridiculous sucking on his fingers and told the little boy that his fingers were going to rot off - like it was his business. He'd never met her before the party. He also "playfully" asked a 5th grader out on a date - several times throughout the day. I'm still waiting to hear from her parents. I'm sure it will happen. When it came time to leave they refused to allow the kids to take home their gingerbread houses and told me to throw them away. She knew they were going to decorate them before coming and that I had spent 3 days baking and assembling them. All four of her children left crying because of it with her yelling at them and him telling them to stop acting like babies.
This was 3 hours with them and I didn't even tell you EVERYTHING, just to give you an idea of what I go through on a regular basis. I can not get them out of my life but do not know how to deal with them in my life. I want to come out the bigger, better person in this and only have 2 weeks to deal with it before I see them again at the family holiday party. My husband is supportive of me and realizes how badly they acted but it is his only sister and he doesn't have much family. He doesn't want to severe the relationship with her but doesn't know how to handle them either. I have never been so hurt, offended, angered, embarrassed in my life by anyone IN MY OWN HOUSE. I just don't know what to do or what to say to mend the situation. I obviously can not change their behavior so I have to find a way to let them know that it will not be tolerated.
