Disgusted with my SIL ...
My hubby bought my niece a nice mixer for Xmas, and immediately her overbearing, domineering, b*tchy mother insists on taking it back. This girl, our niece, is a college grad. She's 18, and not only capable of making her own decisions, she has every right, legally and otherwise, to do so. Yet, her mother still dictates her every move to her.
It never occurred to this awful woman that just maybe our niece enjoys her mixer and wants to keep it. Of course, SIL will put so much pressure on her and make her life so miserable that she'll cave in and give it up. They'll reimburse my hubby for the price of it, but that's not the point. He was thoughtful enough to get her one, and she should be allowed to live her own life and enjoy her own gifts without her mother sticking her nose in where it doesn't belong.
Our niece ran away from home a few years ago, and we didn't blame her.
She needs to get her own place just as soon as she can find a job, and get away from this vindictive, unhappy woman who, by the way, is making hubby's mother (my MIL) miserable, too. She's in her 80s, and this isn't good for her.
