MIL & FIL were visiting last weekend. When it was time for DS1's nap, FIL volunteered to go up and take a nap with him (thank goodness he decided to nap on the floor and not in DS's bed with him since he's 300lbs and I was afraid he would break it), even though we take him for walks to get him to sleep, because he no longer goes to sleep for naps if we just put him in his room. FIL did not care and seemed to think that he would go down with him. Half an hour later, DS is still playing, and I told DH to go get him and take him for a walk.
Fast forward to yesterday. I was emptying the trash in all the bathrooms, and I notice that it stinks in the hall bathroom really bad. The toilet in there has been broken for months, and we don't ever use it anyway, so we have not been in a hurry to fix it (the tank is under a counter lip, so it's a b*tch to get into and we've been lazy). The water has been turned off to it since otherwise it runs constantly. I flush it every few weeks so that the water in the bowl does not get stale and nasty. We have told FIL on numerous occasions that the toilet is broken and if he wants to use it he needs to turn on the water underneath, or use the one in the master bath or the one downstairs. Anyway, so I notice the nasty smell, and check the toilet thinking the water has just gotten stale. Nope, FIL peed in the toilet and then did NOTHING when it did not flush. I would understand that he forgot it was broken. I would understand that he could not get down to turn on the water because he's so fat that he can't get down under there. I do not understand why he could not tell anyone what happened and just wait for us to find it. So freaking nasty! I'm about to ban him from using out toilets at all (not really, i'm just annoyed!) since the last time he visited I stepped in pee on the floor in front of the toilet after he left (he was the only one to use the downstairs toilet) that he did not clean up. I understand that he has bladder issues, but seriously? Clean up your pee! A time before that he clogged up the toilet and then tried to use the toilet brush to unclog it. It did not work, so he just put the brush back, covered in toilet paper. Seriously? Is it too hard to ask DH for the plunger? He is manic depressive as well, so you can't even bring it up with him without him throwing a tantrum and storming out. I told to DH to deal with it, since it's his dad and I'll probably just be a b*tch to him.
Ok, my vent over, time for yours! What has your IL's done lately that annoys you?
