The same girl in the scene where she was crossing and opening the legs while going fully commando was legendary.

Another long post to vent some of this frustration:

So to update. And a lot of nonsense history to get through here...

I have complained for months about my FIL and MIL doing 0 around the house...except making huge fucking messes every where they go. And only half ass cleaning it up (one time they dropped a carton of fruit juice on the floor...then "cleaned" it with a dry mop -- so just this sticky fucking mess in the end). I enjoy cleaning and used to clean the house an hr a day, every day after work. But I eventually got tired of cleaning their same mess over and over and over. My wife eventually started cleaning up after them (because she didn't like me complaining)...but then comes to me to complain about -- she sweeps the floor or wipes down the counter tops, and IMMEDIATELY after, her mom or dad will spill something or leave crumbs, or cook and make a huge fucking mess etc. etc. etc.

I tell her to tell her parents to stop acting like 7 yr olds and act like the 75+ yr olds they are. She says, they are old so she has to respect them yada yada yada. I told her...if she doesn't want to address the issue directly...I don't wanna listen to her whine about it. These have been a rough couple of months with them living here.

So anyway...the other issue is that her older sister and her husband and her two kids are poor...yet refuse to acknowledge it in any form. They constantly come to us to "borrow" money for "emergencies". This is the same family where the wife has worked 2 minimum wage jobs for the past 10 years while the husband has not worked at all. Eventually, she got a management role and quit the 2nd job...(though I think she made the wrong choice. A career in retail or in a hospital administrative office?) To be fair, he could not legally work because he lost his paperwork after getting citizenship -- but never put in a bit of effort to get the paperwork replaced. It came to a head earlier this year when he got arrested for driving without a license -- and was eventually deported. He has his paperwork now...but lo and behold, he STILL has not even STARTED looking for a job. He worked in construction. His favorite past time is to come to my paid for house -- and point out things that can be fixed/repaired. It is petty stuff. "You can tell the did a repair here, that paint doesn't exactly match the paint before -- That door frame doesn't look square -- You can tell your house is settling here, you see that crack forming in the drywall?" Just petty shit like that.

Finally, for Thanksgiving, the FIL and MIL went to that sister's house. That sister works in retail and had to work late Thanksgiving/Black Friday...but didn't want to leave her children alone (her husband went to Miami for some reason...but he has always randomly done that). They were complaining about having issues with their AC unit beforehand. She came with her kids to pick the parents up on Tuesday (wife and I were at work). They drop the baby off with my wife on their way out. Wife comes home early. I get home. Tuesday night they are gone. Wednesday night they are gone. Thursday around 10a, I am downstairs playing with my daughter when I hear the lock on the front door rattle. In walks FIL, MIL, sister and her 2 kids. I ask my wife did she know they were coming and she said, not really, they called her about 5 mins before to say they are almost there. They basically say their AC unit has crapped out and the house is too cold to stay. So they ask to spend the night. They also ask to "borrow" some money to get their unit repaired. I asked how much money do they have to put towards the repair -- she says she has about $2200...but doesn't want to use that because that is for the kids' iphones for Christmas...but if we could loan them the money or even cosign for them...they would definitely pay us back. Long story short, we paid 100% of the replacement unit costs and they kept the money for iphone 11s "because it's Christmas, and you gotta help family, and a $5k repair is just at 0.5% of our net worth (meaning that if I had a $100...I would have $99.95 left after this repair) -- it makes sense...but because of how this family is, it has been a very rough patch in our marriage. In my world view...you don't get iphone 11s @15 and 11 period, but especially if you can't heat your house. But whatever. She leaves for work. We find places for everyone to sleep (1 guest room, the parents' room, and a sleeper sofa later). Thursday they spend the night. Friday, she says she's too tired to drive back to get them...so they spend the night. Saturday, she says shes still tired and may be getting sick, so they spend the night.The husband gets back Sunday, but he's tired from driving from FL to NC and she says she's sick. So WE drive the kids back Sunday night because they have school on Monday. Oh and the kids harrassed me constantly on Friday to take them shopping because of the really good deals. When I said no...the 15 year old boy threw a tantrum and started crying. I took my daughter and cellphone and mocked him relentlessly, until he shut himself in the guestroom. So I signed on to my WIFI and blocked his access -- yes, yes, I'm Richard PETTY. But I had a good laugh.

The newest issue is that my wife's other sister is in the Army and currently stationed in KS. She is being medically discharged in January after 17-18 yrs of service (she had crazy complications with her pregnancy a yr plus ago and will likely never be the same). He husband is also retiring after a 20+ yr career in May/June. The parents go back to Nicaragua in Feb. This sister's plan is to go to Nicaragua with her parents from Feb to May. When they come back, the mom, dad, sister, her child wanted to move in with us "because Killa has a nice big house with lots of space" to figure out what their next move is while the husband retires and arranges to move across the country. They never asked btw...they TOLD my wife that that is their plan. Fortunately, my wife said she HAS to talk to me about it first. Obviously, I said not just no, but hell no.

This killed the conversation. So the father had this outburst about how he is tired of having to clean up behind me constantly. Obviously, this started another discussion. He says that when I come home from work, I dump my dirty tupperware in the sink and expect him to clean up and he is sick of it. So on Dec 21, they told us they are spending Christmas with the other sister. My wife drove them down on the 23rd.

OK. That background info is out of the way.

We went to visit that sister on the 25th. The sister was excited because she got approved for a 0% interest CC. The kids got their iphones...the husband got 100s - 1000s of dollars in accessories for his $60k pick up truck. The sister got some jewelry. Am I the only one that realizes that they are going to get hit with 30% interest next year. At least the house was a VERY COMFORTABLE 76 deg.

Now this same husband that criticizes my house. They had a leaky toilet 3+ years ago. They ignored it for years until it rotted out the bathroom floor. Eventually he repaired the floor...but when you walk into the bathroom now, it is still unfinished plywood 2+ years later. I also noticed that the shower head is leaking behind the wall -- so there is a forest of mold around the shower/tub parameter. THE GUY WORKED IN CONSTRUCTION...he has all the tools to fix it. He also hasn’t worked a FT for the past decade…so he has the time to fix it. But whatever....

The other thing, the house is fucking FILTHY. We didn’t let our daughter touch the floors. And you know how babies put EVERYTHING in their mouth. Well, we were on her like fucking helicopter parents because HELL NO. They have 3 big dogs (german sheppard mixes) and 2 cats. The MIL and FIL were sweeping, scrubbing stains outta counter tops, scrubbing appliances, washing dishes, taking out the trash, and mopping. Just all the shit that they don’t do at my house. Watching them just blew my fucking mind because I was told they are too old to do any of it. And while grandma and grandpa were doing this, the kids were watching tv, playing video games, and showing me all the cool features of their new iphones – and telling me that I should upgrade my phone because my Galaxy S5 is too old and too far behind current technology.

The sister was just shooting a barrage of nonsense questions about when are we having baby #2? My wife is getting older and we have to think about these things – and can’t wait forever.


TL;DR: I don't hate my inlaws... But I fucking dislike them so much

killa what can I say? It's a crap situation and much as you don't like it I'm sure you're wife appreciates that you've at least helped with everything so far.

You are right though, some people take the piss. I don't mind helping people and if I'm in a better situation than them (through my own making or not) I am inclined to help even more. If you're in a position to give then I think you should and you clearly feel the same way. At some point you have to draw a line though and I can completely see how you're livid. At some point (which I think is now long in the past) people have taken advantage of your good nature and start to treat you like a mug.

I hope that the vent made you feel better and for what it's worth I think you're a pretty tolerant and decent person. I hope you can find a way out though so that you can enjoy what you're working for and the leeching happens on your terms in a way that you can control.

If someone asks me for money and I can spare it then I'll give it. If someone asks to borrow money then I 100% expect to have it back. I wouldn't lend what I couldn't afford but the dishonestly of never intending to pay something back would really piss me off.

Maybe it's just me but saying that you would rather get your kids a new phone for christmas instead of making sure they're able to live comfortably in the house is not good parenting to me. Also if the I hope the guy dealt with the mold in the floor when he replaced it. And it sounds like they may end up with some behind the wall, and usually that ends up being the one you need a specialist to remove. Oh and it sounds like the husband might be cheating if he can afford to go to FL with no job just randomly.

The greatest invention ever created by man is the snot sucker to me right now.

I hope you all don't have to deal with your baby or future baby having a head cold, it fucking sucks. Christmas day he was around a ton of family and was fine. The very next day on Boxing day is when it went downhill with all the congestion and sneezing.

Took the little guy to the doctor and she said he also has an ear infection.

Sailine is helping a lot too with the sucker but he absolutely HATES when mommy and or daddy has to hold him down to squirt solution up his nose. Like he letting off violent screams. smh.

I'll have to read killa's post when I get home and if I have the mental/physical energy. A lot of energy needs to be conserved.

We have been fortunate. Everyone has been sick at some point EXCEPT the baby. I know that will be rough on my heart...

Anyone watching The Witcher? I'm on ep 5, pretty good so far. Am I the only one that thinks the hunchback girl can get the D w/o the upgrades?

When I lived in VA, they had a cajun chicken that wasn't fried. It was delicious and healthier than anything else on their menu by far.

Your in-laws are full of shit, but the kids are right on this one. Not only is Samsung moderately god-awful at putting out security updates, your phone hasn't been supported for a long while. Need to either get a newer phone or sideload an OS that will get regular updates. Lineage OS is probably one of the most popular ones. Google stopped supporting my Pixel this year, and I'm annoyed enough and too cheap that I don't want to buy a new phone, so I'll be likely doing that shortly myself.

Im [naively Im sure] not really worried about cellphone security. I dont have nudes on there. And dont really have any sensitive info either. In all honesty...this site IS my social media. I can brag about my highlights and vent about my frustrations. Just significantly less photoshop involved.

Funny enough, the biggest issue I had last month, my CC was hacked/stolen 3x!...according to WellsFargo, there was a PayPal data breach.
