Okay, this one might be a little long, but is much needed. So my husband's grandma can be a handful. If you've seen my other posts you'd know what I'm talking about. Lover her to pieces, believe me. Just sometimes she can get under everyone's skin. Anyways, the other day her friend calls (her name is Charlene and she is my Mother in laws friends mom. Friends name is Lorraine.) So she calls the house and let's it ring twice, hangs up after I answer and then calls right back? I'm thinking "okay this must be like a code for gram to know who it is, but its not necessary. So I walk upstairs and I kindly tell gram that she doesn't need a code. She can call and grandma can answer, it's not that big of a deal. Grandma goes "Well I don't wanna get in trouble for answering the phone if its a bill collector." And I reply "Grandma you never get in trouble for answering the phone. Especially by me so if it's a telemarketer just hang up." She giggles and that's the end of it. Well the next day I go over to my mother in laws and she asks "So.. weird question and I know the answer. Did you yell and cuss gram out the other day about Charlene calling the house?" I start chuckling because I couldn't believe what she just asked and I said "You're seriously? Theres no way I'd ever even think about raising my voice to that woman. That's ridiculous." She obviously knew I was telling the truth and proceeded to tell me that Charlene told Lorraine that I told gram that "This is fucking ridiculous.people need to stop calling and fucking hanging up. I'm sick and tired of your bull shit this is fucking stupid!" So again, I kind of took some time to gather what the hell I was just falsely accused of, and asked mil to call Lorraine and confront her. So she did (and MIL completely agrees with me btw) so Lorraine goes "well my mom heard what she heard and said that if Marissa would have talked to her like that, she would have put her in her place." First off, bitch is lying about the wrong person. I hate liars! Second, my husband was sitting downstairs and heard the whole thing. And again, agrees that nothing I said was mean, or out of line whatsoever. Third, I don't like confrontation to begin with so why the fuck would I pull some shit like that? Especially to and 83 year old woman?! I'm livid at the fact that even though grandma and dh has validated that none of that ever happened , she's still sticking to her story like the pathetic woman she is. My feelings were/are a bit hurt. I mean who in their right mind would make an accusation like that? MIL goes "Well I'm not okay with Charlene acting like Marissa is abusing my mother, that's not okay." And Lorraine goes "Well we all have our different versions of that." And what the fuck is that supposed to mean?!
What would you ladies do? I'm lost and all I can keep thinking is "Lord please don't let me go bat shit crazy on this woman."
