Edit: This post apparently made people think my wife sucks, which is not the case. She's amazing. Simply an annoyed and embarrassed moment compounded by our laughs. She's over it today.
Edit 2: This was the first and only time the screensaver had ever popped up on the TV. The TV is never left idling, it's only really ever used for streaming tv or music. If it's not doing that, it's turned off. No, my kids did not see it. And the feature was immediately turned off.
I get a text today at work from my wife talking about how the kitchen TV(we have a 49" fire tv mounted on the wall near the kitchen island) is showing family photos as a screensaver. I didn't think anything of it, and just continued on with my day at work.
About 30 minutes later all hell broke loose.
My wife calls me and screams at me that my mother in law was washing dishes when a picture of my very hard dick shows up on the screen next to her. Now, I don't know about you guys, but when I send my wife sexy pics, I tend to close crop them for effect. So she got an eyeful of about 3 feet of cock.
I immediately start cry laughing. I'm one of those people with a REALLY dark sense of humor. My wife is not amused. She's screaming at me, and all I can think to say is, "Well, it's not like she's never seen a dick before. How do you think you were made?"
But at least at this point I can hear my mother in law laughing in the background.
Oh yeah, forgot to tell you that she lives with us. So this isn't something that I don't have to live with immediately.
So I get home just before dinner, and it's SUPER awkward. Like everyone is quiet. My kids are none the wiser, they have no idea what happened a while earlier. So I finally look at my mother in law and ask her how her day was. Both of us were laughing before I even finished the sentence. My wife is still pissed. She went to bed and didn't even watch any TV.
My mother in law saw a blown up 3 foot image of my cock while washing dishes.
I M37 grew up with 3 sisters. my mom worked as a seamstress. She had a machine but as kids we weren't allowed to use it, Only the needle and the thread so my sisters could learn and help, also design their own clothes as they grew up. I spent most of my childhood sewing. no playing out or hanging with friends. I loved sewing because I got to make my own stuffed toys, favorites shirts, and scarfs (my mother helped tremendously) I was also benefiting by selling the toys I made to other kids.
I've gave up on my hobby and got busy with life But months ago I decided to go back to sewing so I got the tools I needed and started sewing 4hr every day. I was able to make 3 stuffed toys for the kids and currently working on one of my sister's upcoming birthday present.
My...lovely SIL (43) got married recently and she and her new husband came to town to visit, we only met him 4 times on formal occasions. They got married fast This's her 3d marriage and all were younger guys. Maybe she thinks that by marrying young guys, she still gets a chance for a baby. Which is..(and this might sound misogynistic but..) backward logic. but that's not my business. She makes fun of my hobby and has been calling me "grandma" because I sew everyday. She'd joke about it tirelessly and I'd be lying if I say I wasn't getting fed up.
So they came Wednesday for dinner. We didn't talk much and after we finished. SIL was helping my wife put the dessert on the table. SIL was standing with her plate while I quickly grabbed my plate and excused myself to go work on my project.
SIL chuckled and said "oh grandma has some sewing to do, ha?". Then turned to my wife and asked if "grandma" is still functioning in the bedroom and how she isn't completely turned off by my weird grandma behavior...". I looked at her husband for a second and we both had a "what the heck" moment. To say that I was pissed n' embarrassed is an understatement. I told her well, We have 3 kids so we're doing just fine and that she had no business asking about private matters and needed to sit down and shut tf up. SIL looked pale and her eyes widened up. Visibly upset. The entire room got silent. SIL grabbed her stuff and left shortly. My wife was at the door with her and it sounded like she was crying.
My wife started arguing with me the entire sewing session talking about how I embarrassed her sister infront of her new husband and rubbed our children in her face knowing how sensitive this topic is for her. Said I w... keep reading on reddit ➡
I lost my son to congenital heart disease and he did not survive the open heart surgery at the age of 1 year and 6 months. He was the greatest blessing I had in my life. Everyone kept telling me things will get easier with time. I know that no matter how much time goes by I'll still be missing my baby and everything sweet about him. Mother in law and I were in constant conflict. Things always been bad between us but in those months we reached our limit. She kept getting involved in my son's treatment., and criticized every decision I made claiming I didn't know how to handle my son's illness. We went low contact but she kept causing issues occasionally. My husband was torn between our son's illness and his mother's issues.
When my son passed away she came to the funeral and caused a scene by arguing with me knowing I had no energy for it. She used the fact that everyone was there so she could say it was my fault my son was born sick and I didn't take care of him properly, that I didn't listen to her when suggested other ways to treat his condition. And That I was the one who took their grandchild away from them and caused them heartache. She then loudly called me a bad mother I had no idea how I kept my composure and kept standing on both feet. My mom and sisters responded by telling her to leave. my husband was sitting down crying. She then went to tell everyone I kicked her out as a way to hurt her further and lied that I convinced my husband to ban her from visiting her grandson's grave.
My husband later sent his side of family an email talking about my mother in law's behavior during and after our son's illness and telling them he no longer will be seeing her. That had the family criticizing us saying mother in law was just trying to do what was best for her grandbaby and called us selfish for assuming we're the only ones struggling with this tragedy.
We haven't seen his mom in 1 year and 8 months. I'm now 3 months pregnant. No one knew only my sister in law (brother in law's wife) but word got out. Though we told her not to say anything. Week later I had family members saying I was invited to a dinner hosted by mother in law so she could both apologize in front of the whole family and settle this issue before the baby's born. They said mother in law was regretful, and offered to financially provide for her grandbaby and they want to see that. I refused But My husband surprisingly wants me to go. I had his grandparents calling me telling me that... keep reading on reddit ➡
Most people close to me think that I’m retiring, and they don’t know that I just have had enough. It was a complete surprise to the Department, and a shock to my family. I just couldn’t do it anymore.
I started my career as a police officer about 15 years ago. I was so excited to help people, and to keep people safe. I worked for a large police department with a great record of community involvement, and with very progressive policies. I felt like it would be a good fit.
I excelled in the profession and after a few years was promoted to Detective. I worked in Major Crimes, investigating violent crimes. I eventually specialized in crimes against children and joined a Federal task force. I’ve gone all over the US investigating child predators and felt satisfaction that I was doing the right thing. I also became certified in training law enforcement in Implicit Bias recognition, and ensuring that everyone was treated fairly.
The problem started when several years ago, I observed an officer get into an argument with a suspect in handcuffs. It escalated when the suspect said something about the officer’s wife, and the suspect was thrown to the ground. The officer jumped on top of the suspect and began punching him in the face while he was handcuffed. I intervened and stopped the officer, and then reported what happened. I gave a full statement under oath of exactly what happened. Instead of being fired, the officer was allowed to resign, and he wasn’t charged. I knew I did the right thing, but always felt it was mishandled.
From there, problems started. The supervisors started nitpicking everything I did. I was denied promotions, despite having an absolutely stellar record. Many other officers refused to work with me since I reported what happened. I was transferred to a position that limited me in using my abilities. And as things arose in the news over the past few years about bad policing, I noticed a change in how the rank and file did their jobs and interacted with the public. There was an overwhelming sense that police weren’t appreciated, and that set up officers for negative interactions because they’d show up just waiting for someone to start filming and calling them pigs, etc. mind you, this rarely happened. But from the times it did happen, it created an “us vs them” mentality. Morale dropped and the Department I worked for, which never had an issue with recruitment, started being understaffed. This created an issue where those that usually wo... keep reading on reddit ➡
My mother in law is a kind and funny woman though She does have few problems with boundaries and is a little too involved in my marriage especially now that my wife's pregnant. My wife's family aren't well off financially and it's the opposite with my family, My family own a factory, I'm an engineer My wife has a job that doesn't pay well but she's happy with it.
Every time I get my wife something nice especially jewelry I'd get a call from my mil complaining that she got nothing once she finds out even if it was my wife's birthday or our wedding anniversary. Holidays and other occasions aside, She'd throw a fit about how I was treating her as less than. She always comes over and when she notices a new piece of furniture or any new items she'd complain I didn't get her similar stuff.
She sent a picture of a very expensive necklace that she wanted me to get for mother's day. I called her to ask about it and she said that she's been wanting it for a while, and only I could afford it. When I told her I may not be able to get it she replied that I already got my wife an expensive necklace on sunday and I can afford this one. I didn't get her necklace and instead I decided to get her some fresh flowers that I picked from my late mother's garden that I trimmed/organized myself then put them in a nice vase. We visited sunday evening and my mil kept smilling til it was time for gift opening. I handed her the flowers and talked about how much time and effort I made to put everything together. She was shocked and said she thought I loved and cared enough to get her something nice, just like my wife who technically isn't even a mother yet and she's been a mother for 32 years. I got annoyed and said that I did not appreciate her harsh response to my gift but she argued with me and kept talking about how much she wanted the necklace and that I could afford it just like I was able to afford the one I got for my wife but instead chose a thoughtless crappy gift to give her. That pissed me off.
I said that I married her daughter and not her. Of course I was putting my wife first and It's crazy she thinks I'm obligated to treat her and my wife the same. My wife looked at me and was astonished. Mil replied that I was being mean and nasty to her on purpose and rubbing my financial stability in her face treating her as if she was greedy instead of showing her appreciation.
She went inside looking so upset she was almost crying then my wife followed her. Suddenly, Everyo... keep reading on reddit ➡
