SIL asked to borrow our truck last weekend.  Although I cringed at the idea, I choose my battles, and didn't say anything about it.  The fun part is the reason that she needed it.  She has had no trash pickup service since October, and decided that it was finally time to haul her trash to a dumpster somewhere.  Where did she keep it in the meantime, you ask?  In her garage.  Her attached garage.  Did I mention that she has a baby?  So, we're talking about months of garbage, including baby diapers.  DISGUSTING.  And, yes, we hosed the truck down when she brought it back.  This was after DH unloaded the last bunch of garbage that she brought for us to dispose of, because she ran out of room in the dumpster.  I have been laughing about this all weekend!

MIL has not gotten gifts for my 2 oldest DDs or me in 3 years.  The past 2 years she only bought gifts for my DH and our youngest DD (my oldest 2 are his stepchildren).  Now this year, zip for all of us (unless she's saving them for a rainy day).  The irony??  SIL called today to let DH know that MIL is griping to everyone in the family about how he allegedly called her and asked her what really cheap gift we could buy for her (he actually called and asked her what kind of liquor FIL likes, not sure how she made that leap!).  WTF??  She's yelling and screaming about how we MIGHT be thinking of buying her a "cheap" gift, yet she bought her own DS NOTHING.  And her GC, NOTHING.  This woman has decided that we spend thousands on gifts for my father (thousands, puh-lease), but next-to-nothing on her family.  BTW, she talks to nobody in my family, not sure where her "insider info" on the gift tallies comes from.

My DH recently had an extended member of his family pass away.  It was no one he was close to, but he planned on attending the funeral out of respect.  However, MIL waited until only 3 hours before to call and let him know when the service was, as well as inform him that he needed to pick up SIL before coming out, and this is at least a 3 hour drive.  He told her that there was no way.  I was at work and he didn't have time to get our children ready with such short notice.  MIL went on a screaming tirade (her specialty), about how it was MY fault that he wouldn't be there for his family, because I won't allow him to go.  He asked how I could prevent him from going when neither of us knew when the funeral was, but logic does not apply to my darling MIL.

My FSIL used to watch our children until a change in my work hours meant that she would make less money.  She flipped, insisting that we pay her the same as we did before, even though we would have less, or else she would quit.  She did this on a Tuesday evening, so the next day I signed them up at the daycare that they used to attend before DD#3 was born.  My FMIL ** FREAKED **.  She left a message for my FDH screaming that she was on her way to the daycare to TAKE her GC, and that his "whore" (meaning me) would never see her DD again, because putting her in a daycare is abuse in her eyes.  This is a wonderful, church based daycare BTW.  I warned them, of course, then prayed that she would try it so that I could call law enforcement!!

This is worth a good roll of the eyes.  My DH and I were recently married, and although several members of his family are normal, nice people, my MIL, SIL and GPILs are nasty and bitter.  At the wedding, instead of congratulating him, DH heard things such as, "I hope you know what you're doing," and, "my handcuffs are now off (we have NO clue what that meant).  He was even asked if he was aware that getting married in a church made it a "permanent" thing.  I don't know how he puts up with these people!!!  Luckily, everyone else there was happy for us, so ...

Before we got married my DH's BIL (his sister's husband) mentioned throwing him a bachelor party, although no one was really wound up about it.  DH and I had lived together for years and have a DD.  He was hardly a bachelor!  SIL called on a Friday evening, telling my DH that his party will be the next night and that she needs phone numbers for 8 guys.  When he told her that this was not enough notice and that we had made plans to take the kids to fireworks, this crazy woman actually started screaming at him about how she could not believe that he'd rather spend time with his FDW and children than go to the bar with her DH!!  She asked him, "Aren't you important enough for all these guys to drop everything if they have plans for tomorrow?"  She screamed and yelled so much about it that he finally told her where to go and hung up on her.

My SIL lives about 20 minutes from us.  Her DH is always "working" 12 hour days.  At the time, they had one young son and one on the way.  She called my DH one night, saying that someone was trying to break into her house and she was afraid that they might hurt her.  Could he come over?  He asked her if she'd called the police, which she hadn't.  If somebody was going to kill her, WTF can my DH do?  We live 20 minutes away!  Not to mention, it's not as if DH is a cop, or armed forces, or anybody who she thinks can "save" her (did I mention that her own DH is a marine??).  She was FURIOUS that he told her to call the police instead, even though he called back 10 minutes later (still sooner than he could have driven there) to see how everything was.  She claimed that the cops had checked it out already and had gone (he thinks that's pretty suspicious, BTW).  She then called to tattle to MIL that horrible, terrible me wouldn't "let him" go over there.  They both still throw it in his face that he wasn't there for his sister when she "needed him".  He asked what the he!! he could have even done in that situation, besides show up to find her dead body, but that's not the point, apparently.
