I am so mad right now

My in-laws are coming in tomorrow. They have to pick up my sister in law from the airport and then take her to where they live. I have been fretting this for a long time, as they are not my biggest fans. They aren't outright evil, but just the types to get their digs in. Plus, they are getting old, so they just say whatever they want, while we still have to abide by socially acceptable politeness. Plus, SIL is an exact copy of MIL and likes me about as much. Sigh. Double teaming.

Anyhow, all this time I have been thinking that husband has the days off while they are in. Right up until this morning that is. When he informed me that another co-worker had booked the days off. I was surprised. Really, with you having the days off? No, he replies - I NEVER BOOKED THEM OFF. So basically he lied to me.

Now, I have to make it through the day without KILLING MYSELF at the thought of entertaining these bozos for 3 days by myself.


Oh, and I also have to find a way to deal with my anger without a) falling into the fridge b) punching my husband when I see him after work and c) spending the day moping thinking about how bad I want to do a) & b).


Oh, so just to give you an idea, this was one conversation with MIL:

chat, chat, chat..

MIL to me: "you know, you really aren't as ignorant as you used to be"
me to MIL: "ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............... thank you?"

FIL to husband: "these are really, really nice hardwood floors you just had installed. But when I crawl on the floor with my magnifying glass, I can see that the worker dinged the floor here, and here, and here, and here - does that make you sorry that you got them?.... but ya, they are great"
husband to FIL: "ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............... thank you?"

see? not evil - just fucking ANNOYING!!!



  1. SERIOUSLY annoying! Oh, I'd be mad at the husband as well. Jeez

  2. Anonymous2:21 PM

    Hubby is totally in the dog house! I'll be praying that you keep your sanity!

  3. I had to go back and read part one. Fucking hysterical!!!

    Okay, you have my permission to punch husband in the mouth. In this case, violence is the only appropriate action. :)

    They sound like lunatics. She honestly said you weren't as ingnorant "now"? OMG! I can't believe someone would say that. What's her own IQ, like 30? What a moron!

    And the floor comment, sounds exactly like someting my own MIL would say. Oh, and her IQ is 140+, she's in that stupid MENSA thing which she likes to flaunt. I swear she either cheated or is fibbing about being in MENSA.

    Husbands, can't live with them, can't live without out them (although, sometimes I'd like to try!).

  4. Oh man, I read this the other day on my phone and KNEW I had to comment...my in-laws do NOT like me at all...I don't have a real "woman's" job and I don't parent very well...ummm, I am the only one whose kids are in college (knock on wood).

    I HATE it when Mr. P tells me stuff like that to keep the peace. HATE it.
