Going to go out for supper with my MIL and FIL right away. They are currently staying at a hotel and going out for supper every night. They are taking a break from living in their house because it's too stressful with my SIL, her husband, and their two incredibly noisy children living there. And it's not just us who think they are loud, everyone
thinks their kids cry, scream, and throw tantrums waayyy more often than average kids do(because they get rewarded for it! I never got ice cream just by screaming for it when I was growing up, although that works now
I just think this is so sad. My MIL and FIL can't even live in their own house,
and it's so bad living there that they'd rather pay to stay in a hotel. I don't understand how my SIL and her husband don't feel absolutely horrible about forcibly moving into my inlaws house and flipping everyone's lives upside down. It should have been a big enough tip that they are horrendous to live with when me and my husband moved out of there and opted to waste $1200 a month to rent a house just to get away from them, but when my FIL and MIL would rather stay in a hotel than their own home just to get away from them? How do they not feel absolutely awful about the stress they have caused everyone? I mean, we hate children so it's understandable that we'd get sick of them pretty fast, but grandparents usually can't get enough of their grandchildren! I just don't understand it at all. Sure, they
are saving money by living there rent free, but at the huge expense of everyone else. They could have made it easier on my MIL and FIL by cleaning up after themselves once in a while or cooking their own supper. It's like having two teenagers living there who also have a 2 and 4 year old.
I just... never in my life would I force someone out of their home for my own benefit. Everyone even offered to pay for their rent if it was about the money, but they were set on moving in because they thought moving into another apartment would be stressful on their kids
. The intrusiveness is mind boggling. It's like bizarro world over there. No wonder when we were moving out of there all they did was sit around complaining about it getting cold in the house from us opening and closing the door instead of trying to help us load up the truck to speed things up; they have no concept of what being considerate is.
They haven't even come to visit their dog that I'm taking care of since we moved out, don't they miss her? Don't they want to know how she's doing? It's like having children made the parts of their brains responsible for caring about anyone but themselves completely melt.
