Hi guys. Last night over at the in-laws my dh & mil were nagging back & forth about a stupid mattress! They're having an appraiser over today so they've been cleaning and clearing out their rooms and closets. She had a few things to give us plus a double mattress for the bed they are going to give us. She wanted all the stuff out of the house last night. But it was getting late, plus my dh wouldn't have any help carrying the mattress in, at least I thought he would need help, but when I chimed in saying this, she said well HER husband carried it in all by himself. So I shut up. Then she was saying 'well at least put the mattress in the van(their van) and have dh drive it home and bring the van back the next day.' Well, he wasn't planning on coming to their house today to drop off the van, so I chimed in again and said that maybe dh could drop the van off the next day at lunch. But he said he wouldn't have time to do that. I didn't know what else to say to her. So then she gets all pissed and says, 'I just won't give ya'll the mattress then!' I was sitting there (trying to get thru to vote for Ruben on Am. Idol!) and didn't know what to say. After a minute or so she calmed down a little and said well I guess you can at least load it into the van and we'll just keep it there over night.
I was so pissed, mostly at her, but I could tell that dh was kinda egging her on, but I wanted to say 'fine we don't want the stupid thing anyway!' Doesn't this sound so immature of her? First she's all nice giving us stuff that we don't even ask for, and then suddenly she's mad about dh not doing what she wants, so she's gonna take it all back??! I felt sorry for my dh, this isn't the first time they've nagged like that back and forth. But she can be such a b**** ARGHHHHH! Besides my FIL ended up loading the stupid thing in the van all by himself, so my dh didn't need to do anything after all! What would you have done?
