5 Annoying things my daughter-in-law does

1. Her sleeping habits

On the two days that she is home, my daughter-in-law (DIL) will lock herself in her room — with my grandson — and sleep for hours. She won’t come out till midday. This is neither a dorm nor a hotel room, young lady!

2. The takeover

It took me years, maybe decades, to get the house to look a certain way. It’s only been one year since DIL moved in but she has already rearranged the entire house and brought in new furniture. And I can’t stand the new look! Why do we need uncomfortable sofas, cushions everywhere, and lamps that barely give any light?

3. The mess

I refrain from walking into her room without asking, but even if I pass by it in the morning, I can see clothes thrown around everywhere, every cupboard flung open and my son’s socks strewn in the room like confetti.

4. The hermit

She never wants to visit my relatives which means my son and grandson can’t visit them either. She’s always either sick or busy at work. I love how that’s never ever the case when it comes to her own family’s lunches and parties.

5. The fake charisma

We’ve had the same driver, cook and maid for years, but ever since she moved in, they are constantly at her beck and call. So whenever I need the car, the driver has gone to take mem sahab for shopping, when I need some help in the kitchen, cook’s busy preparing mem sahab a late breakfast and when I need the maid for something, she’s cleaning up her messy room.

Couldn't help smiling as my mother in law didn't like things about me but I did eventually get her respect and learned to compromise.
