I know you could talk about whole branches of your family tree or the coworkers in THAT department or the neighbor that has issues, but for this thread you only get one.
My sister-in-law. She’s not really my sister-in-law but rather a family friend that thinks Mrs. Cad is her “spiritual sister” after they were pharohnic princesses together in a previous life. She also sees me as a spiritual brother which means apparently I’m married to my sister or something. She also told me that means that she would never have sex with me which was a weird comment to make considering.
I have never made advances to her
I am not attracted to her in the slightest
We were discussing her search for a second job at the time
To quote Dr. Evil: Very well, where do I begin. She got married to a guy she hated at work because she wanted to change her last name and move out of the house. Notice the lack of anything to base a marriage on in that sentence. On their first date, she told him that either he marries her or that’ll never go on another date again. Because he wanted to have sex with her, he agreed. Of course they got married and had a kid and got divorced and she doesn’t get why they don’t have a good post-divorce relationship. Oh wait she does – he’s an asshole. :rolleyes:
My SIL is very judgmental. Woe to you if you are 5 or more pounds overweight or she thinks you’re ugly (yes she is about 30 lbs over but that’s different), she will explain to me and Mrs (not realizing we don’t care) how they really should not exist. The ex has a new girlfriend and so SIL asks her 8 year-old daughter if the girlfriend is pretty and the reply is, “Yes.” That’s it. Just, “Yes”. That is immediately translated into SIL telling my niece, “You think she’s prettier than me.” followed up quickly by, “You think I’m ugly!”
So she’s living with us paying $500/mo. What does she get for that $500? A room and her own bathroom. All utilities and food for her and her daughter and free babysitting. We also take my niece out to dinner with us or the movies or the zoo – all the while she never offers to pay for these “extras”. I calculated it out that at $10 per hour that it would work out to over $1200 in babysitting costs she is saving. My SIL got upset with Mrs Cad and me that we had to run over to her work (I drove because of the snow) and my SIL couldn’t see her boyfriend that night because she had to watch her own child. Apparently we are to watch her daughter everytime she wants to run out. She has even left without telling us or asking if we could watch her daughter.
She actually thinks we are robbing her of that $500/mo. Get this, she is thinking she can get her own two-bedroom apartment with all utilities and food for less than $500 every month. And another reason we are “stealing from her” is that if she is not home then whoever is taking care of her daughter should pay for her food. This attitude has gotten so bad that for Christmas Mrs. Cad decided not to charge her $250 for the second half of December so the SIL has money to visit her family, buy presents, etc. The SIL’s reaction? “Meh.” But when someone offered her an extra $25 for a puppy (she can’t afford any more dogs but she feels it is not fair to the dog that she can’t have babies) she literally wept that she had that extra money.
Oh God the dogs. She refuses to train them. Instead she mentally talks to them. Not dog whispering but rather full conversations with them. Her female and one of her males are a couple apparently and when the male wrestles around with our female (“making out” in her words), she is afraid he female will see them and find out her “boyfriend” is cheating on her. And when the dogs do that whole mouth/submissive thing, she is disgusted that the dogs are “French kissing”.
So now we move on to the big thing – her job. She works at WallyWorld and like most there, she has worked for years and is not making a living wage ($25,000/yr gross). They have brevetted her to customer service manager which means she does all of the extra work without that $1/hr raise. She refuses to try to find another full time job because the new job may fire her. In response I asked what job security she has at WallyWorld and her reply was, “They like me.” She is willing to take on a second job but has made almost no effort to find one. She also wants to go to school and get an AA + certificate for vet tech but she can’t wrap her head around the fact that that requires time and money. So now she has decided that she needs a job that pays $60,000 to $70,000 and so she’s asked the universe to give her a job like that because apparently if you ask the universe for something really hard it has to give it to you.
So who is the clueless one in your life?
