Would you be offended if...

Your MIL is staying with you for a week and so far she has...

1. Cleaned the bathtub before she showers and asked you to buy a new shower curtain liner
2. Is currently cleaning out your trash can
3. Recleaned the kitchen which was already spotless
4. Told you your home is a hostile environment because you and DH had a minor disagreement the second night she was here
5. Told you you need to get the kids out of the ghetto (eta: we live in an an older apartment complex, which is mainly rented out by older adults on disability. So it's fairly quiet and not a lot of fighting, drug use, loud music, police, etc...)
6. Oh, and she keeps sighing and tapping her fingers and picking at the furniture. Like she's upset or frustrated about something. Not offensive but annoying.

There's been more but I'm so dumbfounded right now I can't think straight.

I would be offended by #4, none of the others. Clean my house, less work for me.

No. I'd just think she's crazy. I'd let DH deal with her.

She would rather die than clean something in my house

How much longer do you have before she's gone?

I'd be ok with #1 and #2...but in all seriousness, this entire scenario would never pertain to me

I really wanted to ask her to leave the third morning.
