Re: JUST FOR FUN: Things You Hate! (NWR but good for Stress)

I'm not sure this'll be a hate, because I'm cracking up about it, but it's SO typical.
DH is super excited because we're going to an open house for curling (the olympic sport). They teach you about it and you get to play a little. We're going with our close friend who we don't see very often. DH told MIL about it yesterday and his sister overheard. She mentioned something about how her new boyfriend thought curling was cool and DH said something to the effect of "Oh, that's nice."
He found out this morning from MIL that she was PISSED that he didn't invite her and boyfriend over the phone. (Happily, MIL told her to drop dead because DH shouldn't be changing our plans without checking with me).
I think this is absolutely hilarious and typical. It's an open house. If you want to go, go. We are not responsible for your entertainment and we're not going to turn our fun with old friend into double date with you + fifth wheel old friend. Fortunately, DH a) thinks this is hilarious as well and b) isn't giving in -- we've come so far from him catering to her every whim.
