(Don’t) talk dirty to me: My husband is a smart, nice, funny guy.We have the same taste in movies, books, and music and have similar political views.
It makes me feel hugely uncomfortable when I come over. She never sweeps or picks up the dog and cat poop in the backyard. A: You tell her exactly what you just told me—that the dog and cat hair situation in her house is out of control, that her backyard is riddled with animal waste and hazardous to walk through, that feeding animals on the same surface you prepare your own food is unhygienic, that this is an unusual lapse in cleanliness for her, and that it makes you not want to spend time in her home.Do not apologize again, and do not entertain their future complaints.And, for your own sanity, mute or unfriend them on Facebook.I appreciated them letting me know and hopefully wearing the world’s largest sweater had mitigated it. We’re going to see them again at a BBQ in about a month (it’s at our house, otherwise I’d skip it).I’m wondering how to handle this situation, especially since I just got a call from a mutual friend saying that she called her sobbing about how this had really cast a pall over her day.He has two children from a previous relationship, ages 6 and 10.
They live with their mother (his relationship with her is still tense, though they’ve been apart for three years), and he sees them regularly and is very proud of them.
It seems that she casually told some of her friends not to wear blue, and I didn’t get the message.
She was apparently horrified that I had worn “her color.” Another woman also wore blue and got the same treatment.
Friends ask me if I’ve met them and seem startled when I say no.
I don’t want to be pushy, but I’m starting to wonder if it means he doesn’t see us lasting—or if it’s something to do with their mother.
At the start of the reception, she stomped over and said very loudly that she couldn’t believe I had worn her color.
