Quoting Cecilia&Charleigh:" WOW. I read through all of your posts and WTF. I thought I had it bad... My SO brother asked if he could ... [snip!] ... hard to understand, Im trying not to get distracted with my hundreds of other stories but this one is one of the cake toppers."
That's gross. 21 is too old to be acting like that, sounds like MIL didn't do a very good job with him.
My husband and I lived with my MIL and FIL the first year we were married. I quit my job to go to nursing school full time and we figured we would save money and not have to take out so many student loans. It was one of the biggest mistakes of my life.
They were inconsiderately loud all the time. My MIL would get on skype at 6am and literally scream at the top of her lungs like a wild Yeti in heat. FIL would come home late from work at 1am and slam the front door so loud that it would wake us both up. FIL got sick a lot. He would have the flu, a stomach bug or a terrible cold every other week. MIL would get it soon after. Neither one of them would go to the doctor. Finally, after they both had chronic, barking coughs for almost 4 weeks, my husband came down with it, I confronted them. I begged my MIL to use the dishwasher instead of using cold water in the sink to wash the dishes. I went and bought hand sanitizer and soap and nicely asked them to use it. None of it got used and neither did the dishwasher.
I woke up with a fever one morning and a bad stomach virus. My husband took me to Urgent Care and the doctor told him that we don't need to share utensils with his parents, especially if they are always sick. My husband went and bought us plastic utensils, cups, and plates. We stopped eating my MIL's food which pissed her off but at least we stopped getting sick. We also started looking for our own place and then moved.
The day I delivered my MIL mentioned that we should move back in with them. When I told her that would never, ever happen she went on to tell me that she wanted to take my son home for a few months. He was upstairs in the NICU and this bitch is acting like I'm going to smurfing hand my son over to her.
She's not allowed to touch my son without washing her hands. No smurfing excuses.
