I Believe the Bridges Have Been Burned

A taste of the rest of my life (I didn't actually say what I wanted to say - I just shared that here and, believe it or not, stayed calm):

1) All you are looking for is a meal ticket (seriously? Is that why I have a career?).

2) You can't have anything I bought for her. It's mine (good thing I have a career so I can keep cloths on her back then!).

3) You're an 'explicative' (Really? Actually, I think you may take the cake on that one sweetheart).

4) I must have raised him to be stupid (WTF).

5) You're not going to win (Is this a game? However, I think I already have...).

6) If I can't have her whenever I want her, I don't want her at all (so this isn't about her best interests afterall, but your loss of freakish control. Right?).

7) What is wrong with you that you're 31 and haven't been married yet? ( Maybe because I haven't sat around picking my butt and letting a man take care of me for the last 20 years...OR...because I have a life and don't have to live it through my children?).

And my personal favorite (though it was hard to choose between this one and #7:

8) I'd beat you up if I was in a relationship with you...(Huh? Doesn't even warrant a response. However I think I could take her...).

Yup, I'm fine. I'd still like to salvage it as it is family, however I'm not calling the shots concerning this one. My calm, easy going man has been pushed over the edge. I just hope things work out in the long run.

I like to see the humor in it.

Wait...are these all from the future MIL? What the hell?!? *hugs* At least you kept your calm and can see the humor in it. Me - I would have sad terrible things back since I'm in no mood to deal with bitchy people. :)

Wow! I'm sorry to hear about this. I guess it can't get any worst from here, can it? :)

AJ said...

Ick. MILs can be the worst. I don't understand women like that. Good luck with it all, and if you need to vent, we're here for you!

I'm confused. Who said these things? Wow! I can't believe you had to go through that.

Good job biting your tongue!
And, aren't you glad you are saving that sweet little girl from this woman?
Guess you can cross one more name off of the guest list ;)

Andrea said...

Really? She's going to beat you up!! Whauahahahaa!! I would LOVE to see her try!! What is that woman thinking? Oh, or maybe she is not thinking at all. And she must have raised him to be stupid? Well, lady right now you are the only one sounding dumb!!

I am so sorry she is a complete idiot!! It's really her loss. (((HUGS))))

Not really sure what to say. I am in awe... I am not sure I could have kept my mouth shut...good job.

Laura said...

I am in awe of your ability to keep your mouth closed!!! The more you smile at her, and are nice to her and don't let her comments get to you it will drive her nuts! I think that you could have fun killing her with kindness!!

You poor girl!! Sounds like she is definitely sick. That kind of talk from a man's mother is NOT normal. Wow! Unbelievable!! I am so sorry. You should be feeling nothing but joy right now--not putting up with crap from a grandma stuck in middle school.

I'll pray for you guys. Glad your man is sticking by you. Doesn't that speak volumes?

Wow. First off, congratulations on getting married!
But oh boy. What a MIL. I cannot BELIEVE she said those things. Someone's outspoken, eh? Wow... more than a little shocking. I hope this situation gets better, but it doesn't sound good. Wow!
