My tolerance is wearing thin
I know I’m going to sound like a miserable sod but….
In laws, lovely people but….
Drove FiL to Donington and back, 300+ mile round trip.
Got home, cooked a BBQ, no help, despite requesting it as as I’m tired after a busy week and that.
Fair enough, they helped clear up but on my insistence, ” take your plate in then, don go empty handed” ( which they were about to do)
FiL hears footy is on. Watches it despite knowing I, mrs Coolhandluke, daughter and MiL don’t like football
I’ve come to bed early as its winding me up a bit as I think that FiL is a bit rude now.
Maybe I’m tired and grumpy. I don’t know.
I look over it if they were here for a day but its the week.

My FiL I think is about to be diagnosed with dementia (83). But, saying that, I have never met such a bully, coward, tosser and right-wing [rude word] as him. He has ruined his kids’ life, both are scared to death of him, and he still thinks he’s funny and a patriarch, a la ‘godfather’. I only put up with him because of MrAdamW but if he pushes it a little then I’m liable to lose my rag with him and tell him what I really think.
My dad, on t’other hand, was a great laugh, and I wish he’d survived until I was an adult. i would have loved taking him to the pub.Posted 4 years agobearnecessitiesSubscriber

If you’re capable of making that assessment, which you clearly are, then let him have his time and behave as he wishes (providing you stand by that statement above). FFS, he’s married a woman he loves, brought up a woman he loves, so as far as I can tell he deserves maximum kudos and if he wants to piss in the sink, meh, let him 🙂Posted 4 years agounklehomeredSubscriber
My BiL is a really nice bloke, but should never ever be allowed the TV remote.
Also, Globalti, to some extent that’s your wife problem, she should suck it up and accept a compromise. Easy for me, here, to say i know, but that’s not a good way for things to be.Posted 4 years ago
