This is apparently what I do when my mother-in-law tells me that I hurt her feelings. No. Wait. I take it back. I "scrunch up my face and look like" I'm about to stick out my tongue.
And I also do this. I stomp off in a "huff." I really appreciate her bringing this to my attention, because I had no idea I do these things. (well technically she brought it to my husbands attention because every time she tells me something I "respond with anger") I don't even recall having a conversation about her feelings. Wow, I am unobservant. Also when hubby is not here, I act way different. I am really mean to her. Again, thank you for letting me know. Really, no clue!
And would you like to know what started this? On Friday I got up at around 8am. And went to bed at around 10am on Saturday. Why? Oh because I have a job, that is at night. And what did they think was a super awesome fantastic idea to do at 11am?
Mow the lawn.
Right outside my window. And I expressed my displeasure with this by going to her room and jokingly saying. "Well I was asleep. But now they're mowing." with a smile on my face. And she snapped at me so I snapped back. But that's not what happened. Silly me. I actually stood in her doorway with my eyes bugged out and stared at her until she asked me what was wrong. And I snapped "Well I was asleep!" How creepy of me.
They then waited until I had left for work to confront hubby with my obvious rage issues. Good thing cause I might have hulked out or something if they had come to me about it.
