My sister and grandmom have big problems!!! They are both liars. They "embellish" the truth to make it sound better constantly.
Their favorite is that my husband abuses me. I have had their friends come up to me and with pity in their voice ask me "How are you really?"
I am fine. My husband has NEVER laid a hand on me. But because he is Middle eastern they think its ok to spread this lie.
Recently I asked my sister if her friend (who is looking for a job) could watch my daughter during the day and I would pay her so I could work. She said Yes. Then calls up my whole family and tells them "She is letting the baby stay at this persons house and they smoke pot there!!!" How am I supposed to know, she should have told me! Its her friend. Why did she go tell everyone but me, just to make me seem I am a bad mom!!!
I am tired of this sneaky lying crap! What would you do in my situation?

When my grandmother was alive she always told everyone that my DH didn't work. He's had a job since we were 18 (actually he's had one since he was 15!) She would make snide remarks about him and it drove me crazy because it was his money that was burying extra groceries for her and he'd come up on his days off and fix things for her (broken boards etc). When he and I first got married she told everyone he only married me because I was pregnant! (wasn't, didn't get pregnant until after 9 years of marriage! :D) It was awful, my mother has her tendencies as well. when I call my aunt she says things about us and I just wonder what has been said. It's really frustrating!
