OMG...I know there is one in every family. Who is yours and what do they do that drives you so nuts?!
I just got back from my paternal grandmother's house. She is a complete nut job. She pops pills like they're candy and twitches from all of them...besides that, she feels the need to criticize everyone behind their backs. She will talk about how there is "something wrong" with my aunt's grandbaby because her eyes are so light she must be retarded (crazy, the child is not only FINE but beautiful). Today when she thought I was out of the room she told my entire family that my daughter wouldn't know what a home cooked meal was if it wasn't for her...lol...she sees me twice a year but apparently knows how I run my house. I really don't think I'm going back. The only reason I still go is because I feel obligated, but I'm through.

cont....This woman is soooo pushy and rude. She gives and gives and gives but always with a stipulation. Once she told me I was not to ever buy a Rainbow vacume cleaner, to prove her point she took my husband shopping for the vacuum she thought we deserve. Oh, and she told me once I was not allowed to have a cashmere sweater because she didn't own one until she was 50. I bought 5 after that bitchy comment. Each time I wear them I smile. But she does shit like this ALL the time. Once she was so upset that we were going to paint the floor of our basement she tried to get my husband to have some people come to take measurements for carpet and said she was only paying for carpet. AGAIN: I didn't ask you to Bitch. Can you tell I can't stand her?

Oh - and the woman back into my car this visit and cracked it. She actually said she hopes my deductable isn't too high. Pawh! Knee slapper. Of course her husband, who is basically this normal nice guy, is paying for it. I had to just leave. New rule: cut the shit out of my life. This just isn't right. If it means that it is just me, my husband, and my child (children) then I am ultimately okay with that.

Thank you posting this thread. This is soooo cathartic, I really do feel better. Oh how I could go on and on. Just one more MIL story for the road. So my dad is being inducted into his high school hall of fame. He was honored and really felt good about it. We went as a family to support him and had to travel up back north. It just so happens it was during the same time of the annual family beach trip MIL plans every year. So I tell her, no can do this year. So she says to me, "Oh, maybe you will vacation with your husband next year. What a shame." As if my husband was not going to go with me but to their beach trip. She actually believed it was going to be that way.
