Vent About Mil Again

krnj - July 1

Ok ladies, tell me this isn't a little rude. I'm at a wedding today with my dh and mil. At the ceremony, my mil blurts out "Oh see that girl, she does aerobics and can help you lose that pouch"!! She said it loudly at the ceremony!! I'm sure she didn't mean anything by it but I think that was an uncalled for comment. Even my dh gave her a look. I've lost all of the weight but I do have a little pouch from the c-section. Anyway I just ignored her. What do you ladies think about that? Am I just being too sensitive?

uuuggghhh! Nothing is more annoying than having someone point out your poochy belly....good intentions or not. I don't think you are being overly sensitive and I think you did the right thing by ignoring since you don't feel she meant anything by it. Some people just aren't very tactful...

ignoring her isn´t rude... what I´d like to do in your place would be. Her intentions might have been good, but she should be more sensitive. My MIL does things like that all the time, with the best intentions, and it is SOOOOOO annoying. I had to quit my corporate job when I got married and moved and 5 months after that my MIL came to visit and one night she came home with a bunch of employment newspapers (those that recruit supermarket cashiers and cleaning maids) for me... oh, and she also asked the cashiers at the local supermarket if they were hiring bc her DIL was unemployed. Her intentions were good... so I had to in addition to everything thank her for it.
