Woman accidentally breaks MIL's chair, MIL gets revenge in humiliating way.


When this woman is fed up with her MIL, she asks Reddit:

'AITA for refusing to go to my MILs house after she invoiced my husband for a chair I accidentally broke?'

Ever since I turned 30 my MIL has been a complete nutcase because I haven’t given her a grandchild (I don’t plan on having kids).

When my husband is not around she will make disparaging remarks about my weight even though my BMI is healthy, how my husband earns way more money than I do (when I met him I earned more) and the fact that I’m on anti-depressants for a diagnosed mental illness.

I have tried to set boundaries with her in the past but this has not worked.Fast forward to this week and went over for a birthday celebration. I sat on an outside chair (which I believe was already weather damaged) and it cracked. I apologised profusely saying it was an accident and everyone said it’s fine I mustn’t worry about it.

Forward to last night my husband told me that my MIL sent him an invoice for 200 $ for the chair. She did not send the invoice to me because she didn’t think I could afford to replace her words “not cheap” chair.

I slept on the matter and decided to send her a diplomatic message saying that I won’t be coming to her house anymore because I’m afraid I’ll break more expensive things.

I told her my husband is a grown man and is free to go as he wishes and I will not prevent him from seeing her but I have had enough with all her antics.

This has now turned in a whole family drama so AITA for refusing to go to her house in the future?

Let's find out.

NTA. She's being really petty. It was an accident. It was a chair. She needs to let it go. Sending her a message directly and saying what you said makes her look like the crazy one, because she is.

NTA. I'm not sure why the chair broke but if I were the host, I'd be appalled that my guest had to deal with a situation like that.

But I'm also not the sort of person who'd invite a guest I don't like to something I'm hosting. I think avoiding her home in the future is an incredibly wise decision.

NTA. This MIL sounds horrendous. Making disparaging comments about your weight is bad enough on its own, but ragging on your depression and your salary (which sounds like it's good anyway??) put her just way over the line. Have you told your husband about this? He should stand up for you, as his spouse.

Although maybe you should've just told her that you didn't want to go over because of how she treats you, instead of possibly breaking more expensive stuff. She'll just use at as ammo to make up stories about you being clumsy, broke, petty, etc.

Well, looks like OP is NTA. Any thoughts on what she should do?
