i think my sister-in-law is an alcoholic

So my husband and I vacationed awhile ago in the vicinity of Sister-in-law and was promised that she would make the 1.5-hour drive to eat lunch with us before we departed. Well, she decided to not show her face that morning at 8am as promised, which I could have cared less about if I wasn’t anxious to get started on our 8-hour drive back home that very same day. Not only did she not show up, but she also did not even bother calling to let us know nor did she (or Miniman) answer repeated phone calls that were made to them.

When we finally contact them, we find out that they have not even left yet and they have the audacity to try to get us to change our plans to work around the fact that they couldn’t get their horny lazy asses out of bed. My husband is far too nice about the whole thing (as usual), so I just grabbed the phone from him and proceeded to chew Sister-in-law out, about how she’s such a hypocrite for not respecting her elders (us) when she continually tries to make it seem like we don’t respect our elders enough (not true), about how she thinks that the world revolves around her, and how we’re supposed to follow her schedule even if it’s extremely inconvenient for us to do so. Suffice it to say, I made her cry, which is no big accomplishment because she cries at the drop of a hat. Well, my silly husband still wanted to meet up for lunch even after all of this drama, so we wait for them to show up. When they finally do, we meet at a restaurant, where we walk in to find Sister-in-law wearing sunglasses. Inside. Who the hell does that besides Hollywood celebrities? Seriously. Who does she think she is? When probed about her reasons for being so pretentious, she continually claims that her eyes are sensitive to light because she stayed out too long in the sun the other day. What kind of bullshit excuse is that?

Not only that, but she’s ordered a glass of wine to go with her lunch. Who the hell drinks wine at lunch with their family when no one else is drinking? And at a pizza place? It’s not like we were having $100-steaks or something. Bad enough she ordered one glass, she ended up ordering another. Maybe one is to be snobby to go with the shades inside thing. But two at lunch? That’s alcoholic territory. It really wouldn’t surprise me if she’s turned into an alcoholic. She’s a super narcissist with an extremely fragile ego underneath it all who’s with a short guy who might be a pedophile just because she’s desperate to get married. I’ve seen less narcissistic people become alcoholics.

Funny thing is…I mentioned my theory to my husband because no matter how much I can’t stand her, I don’t want to see his family go through the pain of dealing with an alcoholic family member and he summararily dismissed it. I hate how I get nowhere with them. They are the kings of deny, deny, deny. If we pretend there’s nothing wrong, then maybe everything will be okay even though everything is not. Well, when this all eventually blows up, he can’t say that I didn’t try to help.

  1. she makes me glad i don’t have a sisterSo my cousin-in-law is coming from the other side of the country to stay with us next week—all the way until mid-August. We’re going to have quite a full house here. Now, I don’t have any problem with him or his parents because I’ve never met them, so they couldn’t have possibly done anything to wrong me. Besides, his mom was very generous with her wedding gifts to us. But I do have huge issues with my sister-in-law, who took it upon herself to mess up our wedding, blamed us for the fact that her family has never pretended to come straight out of a Hallmark greeting during the holidays, and got on our case for not being her mom’s servants. And now there’s cousin-in-law. He’s coming here for the summer because he needs to complete a research project as part of a requirement for a class he takes and I happen to work in a lab and he was desperate because he couldn’t find anyone who would take him in closer to home. When sister-in-law found out that I had saved the day by getting him into my lab, she was upset that she couldn’t take the credit for it (even though she couldn't have done anything about it since her job has nothing to do with science or labs). And now that it’s almost time for him to come, she’s insinuating that I don’t know how to take care of him—seriously, she said that she’ll come to our...
  2. why must everything be about not-so-dear brother-in-law?Just because I haven't written about my crazy in-laws for awhile does not by any means mean that they've become any less crazy. I just figured that I would give the whining a break before I scare off all two of my readers. Well, I think I've taken a long enough break from all of that, so here's an in-law-centric post. My husband and I went on vacation recently to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We make it a point to spend it at the location where we got married because it's quite picturesque and not too expensive to travel to every year. Well, it also happens to be the location where not-so-dear brother-in-law is staying for the summer because he's pretending that he's studying really hard for the OAT (come on now, who actually needs to study for the OAT?!) when in fact it's because his super psycho super fugly girlfriend wants him all to herself for the summer. Suffice it to say, we didn't bother to inform him of our visit or try to make contact in any way. Which of course doesn't mean that he didn't know about our visit. Because we stayed at my other brother-in-law's place (yes, they go to the same college even though they hate each other), which required him to have knowledge of our visit, it can safely be assumed that not-so-dear brother-in-law knew we were there because gossip in my husband's family spreads faster than herpes through a college dorm. But true...
  3. the in-law circle of trust There are several things of note in this little diagram of my in-law’s circle of trust: 1.  Father-in-law is on the fringes of the circle of trust.  Why?  Because he’s kind of kooky and does his own thing.  Kind of explains why mother-in-law relies so much on her kids—because her husband doesn’t do much.  But that being the case doesn’t make her bordering-on-incestuous dependency on her kids okay.  It just means that maybe, just maybe, she should have married a more supportive husband. 2.  Not so dear brother-in-law’s super psycho super fugly girlfriend is well inside the circle.  Well, good for her!  Better her than me!  She super kisses crazy mother-in-law’s ass to trick mother-in-law into thinking she’s God’s gift to her son despite her super psychoness and super fugliness.  Mother-in-law is more than happy to fall for it since she gets another servant.  Oh, the lows she will go to just to have someone else serve her sorry ass—letting her son stay with such fugliness—has she thought about what this will do to her family gene pool?!   In any case, if super psycho super fugly girlfriend is dumb enough to stick her nose all the way up mother-in-law’s hemorrhoidific ass, then all I have to say is I hope not so dear brother-in-law doesn’t mind the smell when he kisses her. 3.  My other brother-in-law is well outside the circle.  And has been.  Because he’s smart and knows better than to get caught up in that shit.  Now...
