Just found out that MIL has asked DH if they could stay in our house while we're on hols in August & he has agreed - I've only just found out

I'm not having it - trying to get DH to phone them to say sorry it's just too short notice, another time would be best

FFS - she is very snoopy - i dont trust her one bit, so AIBU?

why would I allow her to stay here whilst I'm not here? Bloody cheeky of her to ask in the first place

If it's off the bedroom you're sleeping in, you have carte blanche to use it.

I'd have preferred my EX inlaws to stay when I wasn't there grin

I don't really mind who does/doesn't stay and as we used to run our business from home, we always had one of the staff stay when we were away - mainly to cat sit smile

(bloody laptop has a posting mind of its own!)

However - in all seriousness, the EX inlaws (nasty evil people they were) weren't welcome when we were home, let alone when we weren't.

hmm

In laws are people.

Some people are nice.

Some people are lonely, sad and insecure because they repel people like ducks repel water with their thoughtless words and behaviour not nice.

Ignoring someone else's privacy and using them at will having no respect for their feelings is not nice.

But then if you have to be told that I can see why you wouldn't understand the op.
