  •  It would be tragic, but that is on her. (0+ / 0-)

    What the hell is she doing letting herself in at night into someone else's home?


    Would it have been any less tragic, if someone had brained her with a baseball bat in the dark?

      •  Be that as it may, there is a word: Boundaries. (0+ / 0-)

        Normal people with healthy boundaries do not sneak into other people's homes at night.


        That MIL has serious boundaries issues and she needs to be instructed on a safer way to engage with family members.

        There are these things called door bells, telephones, or just knocking, announce yourself for heaven's sake!  I would rather you wake me up at some ungodly hour than scare the shit out of me by sneaking around my house or in it.

        I imagine that the wife would have been pissed if the police showed up and put her mom on the floor in cuffs too!

          I grew up in a very small community.  Our doors were always wide open and we left the keys in the cars.

          I can think of a few times where people borrowed a truck or whatever.  

          Ah, simpler times.
