So my MIL is generally a moron at life... I could literally write a few books...
In particular she's a tail end boomer. Can't see the forest for the trees, holds cash jobs and stupid shit like that. I've been dating / engaged / married to SWMBO for 19 years last week. MIL has never had a w-2 in that time.
She's all kinds of pissed at me about this social distancing deal.
We're moving to our new house this weekend. We're thrilled to be getting out of our shitty rental. Moving from a yard that can be mowed with 2 passes of the landlord's push mower, into 76 acres...Kids are thrilled, I'm thrilled. It's going to be glorious.
Originally the plan was SWMBO's mom was going to watch the kids while family/friends helped us move. We pulled the plug on family/friends 10 days ago and hired movers.
This week, we realized MIL was a moron about social distancing and decided that SWMBO would just take the kids and go to the house early AM saturday to clean, do whatever. I'll supervise the movers and such. Admittedly I suggested it, SWMBO agreed my logic was sound tho...
Last weekend we were putting stuff in a storage barn at SWMBO's mom's place. It's less than a mile from our new place and she has been gracious enough to let us store stuff there as a staging point. Mom shows up, wants to hug the kids right off. I told her to either do air hugs, or get the #### back in her car. She didn't take it well when SWMBO backed me.
SWMBO found out this week that MIL was taking advantage of the low traffic and such to basically have lunch with a friend every day. They just go in some place, get carryout and sit at a booth or table. 110% flaunting the shelter in place orders in the cincinnati tri state area.
By joint decision, SWMBO and I decided I was the designated "out and about" person. It's easier for one person to wash hands, sanitize, not touch their face, etc. Than 2 or more people. I get the grocery pickup, run errands, etc.
SWMBO's mom has told her she thinks I'm too controlling, Maybe SWMBO should seek out battered spouse, domestic abuse shelters, etc. Threatened to call child services since we wouldn't let her hug her grandkids,..
Needless to say... imma pissed.
I figure I'm 50/50 on having to draw down on this stupid bitch before it's all over. She's 100% the type that would show up and push the issue. I'm seriously considering telling her to GTFO once it is all over.
PHBT... what would you don..
