So my inlaws pretty much burned their bridge with us when they asked for the monetary wedding gift back when we got our tax return back in Feb. We only got a large return due to my husband being deployed most of last year. They were having money issues and saw it as a great opportunity to screw us over. After that I broke my foot and they sent SIL (13 years old) over the day of my surgery for me to babysit. Yes, she's 13 but she is very naive and childlike due to no social interaction with kids her own age. I watched her for 3 days after my surgery. Needless to say I wasn't a happy camper, and my husband is stationed 3000 miles away so I already had no help with the 3 kids we have here.
Anyways, recently my MIL has been picking up OUR packages from the PO Box. Their box is 302....ours is 1453. They are not even close together!! She checks daily to see if we have packages. Our post office is a tiny small town one so they don't really check your name or anything for the package....you just give you box number. My husband sent me a Mothers Day gift last week and couldn't figure out why I didn't have it....until today when my MIL left me a nasty message on my voicemail. The message was along the lines of "Nice to see that MY SON got you a Mothers Day gift even though those kids aren't his. Ask him where my gift is, and you need to come get this package immediately."
UGH UGH UGH, why is she soooo against me. I have always been nice to her. When DH and I got married he financially stopped taking care of his parents, and ever since then his mother is destined to be mean to me.
Update: Well on the upside I got my 2nd Mothers Day gift from DH. Its a Super Mom Vermont teddy bear, and matching pajamagram! I talked to the postmaster and put a restriction on our box that now an ID has to be shown in order to pick up the packages.
