The Worst Brother-in-law Ever...

When I first met my so-called brother-in-law my husband and weren't married. It was actually when my husband and I first began dating. My first impression of him is that he seem very friendly and curious about who I was. I remember going to a New Years Eve party with him and my husband who was then my boyfriend. At the house party I ended up dancing with him and then he kissed me. I think that it was very inappropriate of him to have kissed me. I don't care if it was New Year's Eve. That didn't give him the right to do that especially when my boyfriend was right there. After that I began to dislike my boyfriend's brother. He would do things that just really irritated me. In fact everything he did seem to aggravate me. After my boyfriend and I finally got married I wanted to completely avoid him, but it was difficult I went as far as to have a little chat with my mother-in-law to let her know why we were avoiding coming over to visit them. And she said if only she could have been a fly on the wall. I know there were times that I tried to be friends with him, but whenever I did he treat me with disrespect and  emotionally hurt me. Maybe I was a little insensitive but he had no right in say the awful things to me and especially with his parents and my husband being there. I never felt so humiliated in my life.

Years later I GOT a big break when my husband was transferred to another city, but it didn't prevent  my brother-in-law and his wife from driving up to see us and showing up on our door step without calling us first. Before we had moved away. I remember we invited him and his girlfriend over for dinner at our apartment . Since then we moved again and this time to the west coast. And in the last 28 years we have not seen my brother in-law or his wife.. But in the last 10 years  they have started sending us a Christmas cards. I just HATE it when they send us a card all I want to do is tear it up and throw it away. This year they send us a Christmas card with a family photo of them and their two sons. In all those years, we have never send them a Christmas card, but they just don't seem to get the hint that maybe we don't like them.....
