- Stuff your Mum (in law) says
My ex mother in law disapproved of me going mountain biking and used to say “exercise is bad for you, it’s not good for your heart”
She’s not altogether wrong in a minority of cases.
My MIL is wonderful in many ways, but her inability to express herself properly is, er, thingy.Posted 4 years agoslowjoMember
Rather along the lines of the OP. My almost MiL (I escaped from that entanglement more or less unscathed) hit the roof when we were talking about some friends coming over to see us. He was a suit but she was a bilingual secretary.
‘You’re not having one of THOSE people in your house are you? Disgusting etc’
Not sure if she was upset about the suit or the supposed sexual preferences of someone who could speak English and French fluently.Posted 4 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
Can we include grans here. I had the Red Dwarf t-shirt with the ‘Campaign the for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society’ on it.
My granddad (crossword buff) got the clitoris bit to which my gran said ‘I am not sure I know what a clitoris is. Great dinner time conversation ensued.Posted 4 years agorocketmanMember
My mother-in-law regards me with some trepidation she is careful about what she says when I’m around.
Bike-related comments are usually along the lines of “What’s wrong with your old one” or “why do you need more than one”
Generally she is OK though, especially when she’s had a few drinks!Posted 4 years agoRo5eyMember
That white is black and black is white … the argumentative… no that’s not the right word, as it has implications of intellect …. the stupid cow.
She’ll give you her opposite option of yours at everything…. “Arrrh, look at that baby robin. Isn’t it nice?” “Never been a fan of robins” You don’t like Robins?” “Nah”
She does it out of nothing more than habit and wanting to be the centre of attention …. Weird.Posted 4 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
“whats wrong”, every time Mrs coolhandluke calls here, in a tone to suggest she knows something is seriously seriously wrong and she’s bee worrying herself silly.
She told us she didn’t like town centers in case somebody stabbed her with an Aids infected needle. Yes, i know its possible but is it likely?
Her glass is never half full, its rarely half empty its usually totally empty, talk about depressing!Posted 4 years ago
