When this woman is extremely upset with her MIL, she asks Reddit:
MIL has hated me from day one. She is a MIL from hell, snide comments, "oh I was just joking. You are so sensitive", excluding me from things, and straight up telling the therapist when we did group therapy that she "hates me"
My husband has a shiny spine and we are very low contact, but do still see her since we have mutual family. MIL recently got engaged to someone she went to high school with.
Apparently they really really hated each other which isn't too surprising. MIL has admitted she was a mean girl in high school (lol she thinks she is better now)
Anyway someone recently asked them if they were high school sweethearts and MIL was like oh God no we hated each other.
Person laughed and MIL said "no I mean real hate, like he reenacted the pig's blood scene from Carrie) I immidiatley perked up because I need to hear that story. He quickly clarified it was paint and then unfortunately the conversation moved on.
