My mother-in-law is an obnoxious, overweight, overbearing person
By MissModel Story ID: 43
A little background first. My significant other, let's call him K, is very normal, in fact everything I could ask for in a man. He is sweet, funny, kind, and overall is just somebody I want to spend the rest of my life with. However, he has a huge, obnoxious family and they are complete trash. Baby mama drama going down all the time, arrests, drunken family member pissing their pants in the yard, the whole shebang. And they are all overweight/obese (including K but he's been steadily losing weight and getting healthier since we've been together) with horrible eating habits and alcoholism. Then we come to the matriarch of the family, Diane.
Now Diane, like most of her family, is very overweight and walks around with just underwear and a tank top on with no bra on no matter who is over, family or otherwise. She prides herself on "being a good cook" but really just dumps literally anything in the fryer and drizzles on cheese/gravy/ranch and calls it fine dining. She is very loud and likes to embarrass people and call them out in front of as big of an audience as possible. She made it her mission to embarrass me whenever possible.s
As a side note, I'm pretty slim and in the South this is as much of a sin as hating football and throw in the fact that i'm black too and people will literally try to fatten me up "out of concern". I came to his house right after I came from a cycling class and I had on a black crop top and black tights and she rolled her eyes and loudly said (in front of everyone of course) "You're just skinny as hell and you think you fine too but you're not" Then laughed like she was just joking and I was like "heh...heh....yeah".
I stayed with them for a few months after some personal drama and she would regularly throw out my health food and say "because it was going bad" when I knew I bought it a few days before and it didn't make sense to throw it out because there was months old mayo in the fridge THAT SHE STILL USED.
She cornered me once on my way to our room and said, "It looks like you've gained some weight, my cooking must be working!" with a huge grin on her face. And I said, "Nope, don't think so I think it's just these pants." And frowned and said to me, "You think K likes you 'cause you skinny but I think he'll like you better if you put some meat on you, don't nobody want a little girl for long, not to marry anyways." I couldn't say anything back she just stared at me, then got this satisfied look on her face and walked away.
In front of everyone, she would regularly ask extremely personal and extremely graphic questions about me and K's sex life and claimed "she could hear us" even though we lived in a converted basement and were extremely careful about the times in which we'd do the deed. And her room was on the other side of the house so this was an outright lie. She would also say, "Oh I saw your naked pictures on K's phone." And i'll say, "What? I didn't send him any-" and she'll interrupt me and just be like "Aha!" And i'm just like wtf???
K had to go to school the months I was there and lost his job because of it and after a while, I finally found a part time job. I would make 2 separate grocery lists, one with things just for me and K (I'm kind of a health nut and he was trying to get healthier) and one with a few things the household needed because I wasn't paying rent so I wanted to contribute in groceries. This fateful day I bought basic things for the house (eggs, milk, butter, sandwich materials, you get the point) and me and K went to go swimming with another couple. She blew up his phone, yelling about how I didn't buy any "real groceries" and that everybody doesn't eat health food garbage like me. When we came home right after she called and she was SO dramatic when we got there, flinging open the fridge throwing the things I bought around and saying "Where's the chips? Where's the drinks? No (some pork shit I don't eat and never will eat)? IT'S NOTHING HERE!" Then she made us eat just the food I bought for us since I didn't want to contribute to the household.
Also, I have horrible social anxiety and am a very reserved person so you can't even imagine how many panic attacks I had living over there. It's safe to say I moved out after that last incident.
