I’m sorry, but the people you deal with must all be, what’s that word? Ah, sane.
Receiving glurge from SiL is nothing new. I get at least two a day, often more, and have for nearly eight years. The Obama stuff was only a new topic for her, added onto the conspiracies, appeals, jokes, religious testifying, and all the usual crap you can think of. Probably some you can’t.
This woman doesn’t work, never has so far as I can tell. No children. Hardly ever sets foot outside the house other than to do things at her church and its various women’s groups, etc. I honestly think she thinks she is serving some valid purpose in life by spreading all this info. Sort of like a really trashy version of the women who hosted gatherings for writers or scientists back in the 1800s. :rolleyes:
Anyway, yes I have requested that she stop sending me this crap. Several times. The cycle went: She writes me a long, rambly, non-paragraphed and almost non-punctuated screed about how hurt she is and stuff like: 'Why do you hate me? This is important for you to get? Why are you so mean? Why can’t you be a good Christian? I’m only trying to help you. We’re relatives, you should be nice to me or you won’t get into heaven. Why don’t you want to help find missing children? Concluding with a “Okay, I’ll never write you again, but I’ll pray for you.”
And then she’ll send me another of the same ilk the next day. And the next.
After about four of those I’ll get the “I have prayed, and God told me I have to forgive you.” And then the glurge starts again.
We wnt through this cycle five times before I gave up. I don’t want to filter her messages into the trash – mostly I get my info about my brother through her, and he has various problems – so I’ve learned to live with it.
I just thought this time I could give her a good poke.
