Thought I'd share this little story.
My MIL recently confronted me with something in front of my husband. She said "I have something to tell you and I'm not saying this to hurt you, but you hurt me when you didn't want me to drive "Joanne" (our daughter) to her 8th grade graduation, but you let "Bill" (her godfather) drive her." (This happened 3 years ago!)
I couldn't believe this! I told her point blank "Don't blame me. Blame your son! He's the one who didn't want our daughter with you driving." She looked at him and asked if it was true, and he said yes. Reminded her of the car accidents she's been in before. She said "Oh well, that was a long time ago." Then she changed the subject.
I was somewhat offended that she just presumed that it was me. She accused me of hurting her, but yet when she found out it was her son, she let it go! WTF??
