okay here is my situation...my brother in laws girlfriend is 8 months pregnant. i am 11 weeks pregnant. a few days ago was her baby shower, and it was a blast. she got tons of stuff and everyone that mattered was there. 2 days ago she text messages me and tells me about this new swing she bought with a gift card she got from one of her dads relitives. and i said that was great, i made the comment that i already thought she had one and she explained that she did but it was bought at a yard sale by my mother in law and there was a call back on it so she got rid of it. so fair enough i told her oh okay just wondering and left it at that. then she goes on about this amazing car seat and stroller set she got or going to get, and i know for sure the one my mother in law bought her was in perfect condition but also second hand and i asked what was wrong with it assuming there was something wrong with it, and she replies, nothing it was second hand, and now that my grandma gave me some money i want to buy brand new things. well this of course pissed me off for a couple of reasons, first off because my mother in law and her family didnt have any extra any money since the beginning of this year and were seriously stuggling to make ends meet and they still managed to make sure she had everything she needed for the baby, when her family said they werent supplying anything. [she's 16 by the way] thats a slap in their faces! secondly some of the things ive gotten for my baby are second hand, and it pissed me off that she came off like second hand stuff was not good enough for her kid. not that that mattered so much but the first part did! its just being ungreatful to family and ive never been tolerent of it, its just rude. so i expressed my feeling and told her, wasnt that a slap in the face to my inlaws and she said well i want nice new things and now that my family gave her money shes gonna have them. which is fine but way to shit on the people who made sure you had it from the beginning! it just makes me mad! so i stuck up for my inlaws and told her she was being ungreatful and now shes furious with me, i dont blame her but she was being and ungreatful brat and i was not gonna pretend she wasnt. was i too rough on her?
