Creeped out - stepFIL advice!!

I've been with my husband for 5 years, married 3. His step dad is a big jokester, and seems harmless but is always making comments to me that are right on the edge, but he says them openly while laughing, so I've always just laughed him off, since no one else seemed freaked out.

I emailed him a photo of my child and their new puppy a week or two ago, and just got this from him today.

I'm not sure if I'm over thinking this, but it's pushed things too far. It's in secret, no one is around hearing him. I don't see him laughing. I'm just uncomfortable about it, obviously. But am I reading too much into it? I have to see him tomorrow - I'm going to his daughters middle school play. Everyone will be there. But I haven't told my husband yet. Should I? I don't need this turning into a big deal, but I don't like keeping it to myself, either.

Thoughts? Too far? Over-thinking? Tell husband or no?

Tell your DH and let him handle it. Does he know how he makes you feel?

I don't know....

i want to either ignore this all entirely, and pretend like I never got it or tell my husband and have him deal. The last last last thing I wanna do is email him back in any way. But that makes sense. I probably should. He doesn't email much -

Why not just email him back and tell him! Why can't you say, "haha, I know you like to joke around but sometimes I feel a little uncomfortable. My family never joked around much like that. " and leave it at that for now.

This.  You'll have a clear idea of what he really meant with any luck.

No, I've never openly said your step dad says innapprioate shit, but he and I talk about how uncouth he is. He's one of those types that enjoys making people uncomfortable. If he finds a topic that he knows gets to you, he's on it. So we've always taken a dismissive laugh-it-off approch. 

Plus, like I said he usually says this stuff in the open. My husband hehead what he says.
