Re: the food

Some of you are viewing this as some big favor to the husband. In my life, my wife and my mother have come back from gatherings and broght me a plate. Never once was it expected and I would not have cared at all if no plate was brought to me. The idea that the husband is sitting home waiting for this special feast is nonsense. He'd probably be just as happy running thru mcdonalds or having the wife stop there om the way home. Lw thinks that not letting her sister take a plate is going teach him some sort of lesson. He won't notice that a lesson is being handed down.

Additionally, after holiday meals at my house, we pick at the leftovers for a day or so before tossing it. Lw is pissed off that bil is getting a plate of food that would likely end up getting tossed anyway.

1 Why cant he just sit in respectful silence while everyone prays?

2 Is it really so hard to sit thru a meal and not discuss politics?

3 If they beg, it means that they have gotten scraps before, so why not just make them their own little plates?

Easy peasy

Who said he was too good to hang with the family?
1.This could be the family that requires everyone to pray before meals and he figures it is easier to not be there than fight that fight every time.
2. He could be a sound Republican Conservative and her family a bunch of flaming Liberals . Or vice versa
3. His MIL could have a couple of pug dogs who beg at table and are undisciplined which makes him gag.
None of which suggests he thinks he is too good for them, just that attending is distasteful

There are people in this world who are so sure they are right, they do not want to sit quiet. They want to "set straight" the rest of the world.

This little time capsule of Topix is a good example of it.:)
