I figured we could just keep adding to this topic --adding what bugs you about your inlaws as you think of things just add them to this thread. I'd make a sticky of it but I don't know how. LOL I know for me I think of things here and there that they have done or things that they do now or even just things that bug me...
Something else that bugs me about my in-laws is:
I will flat out write my MIL (used to do this--not anymore) an e-mail and ask her a question--she does not reply!!!!!! I think that's rude!!!!!
My MIL thinks she knows everything! No matter what you said to her it's happened to her and she knows everything about it. It cracks me up. Oh and it's happened to her worse than it has happened to anyone else in the world.
The way they talk so great about my SIL and make my dh feel like crap. They always say she moved away and did something with her life. No, she moved away with a boyfriend and then they split up and now she is sort of stuck there. DH is a great step father to my son, a great father to our daughter, bought a house, works, etc. and etc. but they never give him any sort of credit. A simple "good job son" would be nice once and awhile.

"We worry about what a child will become tomorrow yet we forget that he is someone today."
MIL tries to act like she is 20. A few years ago she came up tp my work and I introduced to my boss as of course his mother. he come out and says, are you ready to LYAO, " just think of me as his sister!!" How funy is that. Then when his little brother graduated high school she was going to wear a little spagetti strap short dress. DH's brother freaked on her and said she looked like she was wearing her daughter dress. So she had to go around and get everone's opion. I laughed at her.
One thing that bugs me? Well for starters they smoke in the house. When we go visit dh has to go in first and make them put out cigarettes. I know it's their house, but it just reaks! But the main thing that bugs me is dh's dad is on oxygen full time and they all still smoke in the house!!! One time we went over for a visit without Ian and mil lights up in front of me, fil is on oxygen not 5 feet away. I had to say something. I said "do you know how dangerous that is". She laughed at me!!! And to make matters worse, dh took her side! He's such a mama's boy. He's still in the doghouse about that!!!
I have sil's who think I don't know how to take care of dh. Dh has MS. He is disabled to the point he cannot work now. I do what I got to do for him. But in the same hold a full time job. It seems everytime we go to the IL's for a gathering of some sort. Sil sue has been acting really rude to me. One time we were coming in. I was going over to move something out of dh's walk way so he don't trip. One of the kids had their things in the middle of the living room floor. Sue yells get out of the way. Your dh is trying to get in. I wanted to say *** is your problem. I'm clearing the path for him. Then another time it is getting to be dinner. I get up to go get some food. Was fixing dh a plate first. Sue yells again. Arn't you getting your dh a plate. I said rudely back. This is his plate I am fixing. It's like I get treated like less of a person. They think I don't do enough for my dh. Well they don't understand MS and why dh is the only one in the family who has it. We tried telling them there is no reason why dh has MS and how he got it. That there was nothing we know of we could of done to prevent him from getting it. Or that is what the docs all say. I think because sil sue does not like me much. So she did not invite us to their oldest sons graduation party. I know they had one. Family talked of it indirectly. She mentions Oh yeah C. is sending out announcements of his graduation. We never got nothing about nothing. Graduation was like on June 10th in that week of the 10th of June. It's almost August.
