    [–] Mother doesnt agree with our teaching DS to say please and thank you Shojo_Tombo 1 points ago in JUSTNOMIL

    I would definitely have this conversation before a visit, not while she is in your home. You may want to lay out specific examples of how she has undermined you, how you expect her to behave instead, and the consequences for her failure to toe the line. All in writing, so she can't claim you didn't tell her something or that you were mean to her. Save screenshots of everything to refer to later.

    For example, "mom, when you give my child something I have already told them they can't have and then argue with me in front of (LO), you confuse kiddo and undermine my authority as their parent. In my home, what I say goes and I expect you to back me up in front of the kids. If you continue to undermine my parenting, you will be on time out for one week/month and will not see or speak to the kids during that time. I love you, but I will not be disrespected in front of my children."

    Something along those lines should make it crystal clear she is in the wrong and that you won't suffer her BS. Then (the hard part) follow through. Brace for some spectacular pushback.

    It is in the US. If the heirs believe the will is unfair, they file suit against the estate to contest the will and a judge decides how to divvy up the assets.

    edit: This can be a lengthy and expensive process. And certain legal guidelines must be met for the suit to be valid.

    [–] The huge spike of serial killers during the 60s and 70s might be a direct result of fathers with PTSD from WWII coming back home and raising these kids. Shojo_Tombo 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    And not every serial killer does it for kicks or is mentally ill. Some of them get a thrill (spree killers fall into this category), or get off sexually. Some of them kill the "dregs of society" aka prostitutes and drug addicts because they think they're cleaning up the streets.

    There are "angels of death", usually someone in the medical field who kills patients for various reasons. Then there are the power and control killers like BTK, who often work in positions of authority.

    Some of them are just compelled to kill and they don't know why and want to stop, but they can't. It's mind boggling when you think about it.

    There are as many motivations as there are people on the planet, so it's nearly impossible to predict who could be one. And more often than not, it seems to be the regular guy next door with a wife and kids.

    When you accidentally out yourself with casual racism. And she doesn't even have the balls to own it.

    Genuinely nice people often give their SO the benefit of the doubt when the mask comes off. By the time they realized their grave mistake, they are already married with at least one kid and feel trapped. I was the same way and was just lucky my ex was shooting blanks. If we had had a kid, I don't know if I would have had the spine to leave him.

    And that you will help her sue their estate for an equal share when the time comes.

    Never let her out of your sight. Someone will definitely try to steal that gorgeous girl.

    Them paying for damages while also suing is where it fell apart for me (didn't click the article). If they were to pay go fix her car, that would mean they accepted liability for the accident, and they wouldn't get shit from her.

    Someone did the math and estimates there are somewhere around 2,000 uncaptured serial killers in the US. Data was 2 or more murders linked by DNA evidence, out of 220,000 unsolved murders in the last thirtyish years. 2% of the cases fit the criteria, and then he threw out a ballpark figure.

    I'm guessing she obviously didn't raise you this way. Why does she think she gets to undermine your parenting in front of your son? I would honestly tell her if she won't stop undermining your parenting, then she will be on a time out from grandkid visits until she can respect your reasonable boundary.

    [–] MIL controlling Financial Investments for LO - Rant Shojo_Tombo 1 points ago in JUSTNOMIL

    Yeah, I'm seeing identity theft red flags everywhere. She might be taking out loans in LO's name. Get on credit karma and go to the site to get a free credit report to see if there are loans or credit cards in kiddos name.

    It sounds like bacterial vaginosis, and likely needs antibiotics. She could miscarry or go into septic shock and die. At this point, it wouldn't be a bad idea to go the ER.

    And dont forget to dress up. Because this dinner is just as important as Valentine's and you want her to know you think she's worth the effort.

    When you're so fucking stupid you don't understand how clouds work...

    [–] Beyond evil Shojo_Tombo 20 points ago in iamatotalpieceofshit

    Fuck you. Would you allow me to cut off your hands if I said it would inspire the children of Gaza? A lion is a wild animal and apex predator, not a fucking petting zoo kitty. Kids need to be taught to respect them from a distance.

    [–] EVERYONE IN THE HOUSE will be required to take a drug test today, per request of nmom Shojo_Tombo 20 points ago in raisedbynarcissists

    Write it on the bottom of the cup before you fill er up. And demand she immediately start the test and not wait for the other cups. GC should go last.

    Honestly a mom like that would just sell the gift card to one of her equally shitty friends. Kids with parents like that should only get physical gifts, period.
