In Laws!

I had to have a rant...sorry everyone!

This weekend my dear in-laws sent some books for my little boy (18months old) which initially seemed a nice thought, until upon reading the accompanying letter "...we found them in the rubbish bins and as they looked newish, we thought J would enjoy them" (this is NOT a joke and I was not amused! I wont tell you where I could have shoved them but you get the idea!)

I read back to the 'rubbish bins' and quickly whipped them out of my little ones hands as one of the books was about to go straight into his mouth - as only babys can!

Is this just me or are they deranged! They are retired and J is their only grandson. They are 'careful' with their money and this is actually the first time that they have sent a gift for him - I know it's the thought but this is lack of! Hubby has asked them nicely to not go through other people's bins and the (sort of) funny thing is that they said that the bins were sheltered so hadn't got wet...err what had crawled over them though! Aghhhh!

Santa, for Christmas please can I have new in laws!

It is a bit disgraceful though... What were they doing looking inside closed rubbish bins in the first place?

Yeh, a barrel of laughs! I'm just wondering where last years chocolates came from now! Oh well, they tasted nice!
#5
Mine are the same and like to buy us really cheap well used tat from charity shops like jigsaws without all the pieces:roll:

Last xmas we gave all their prezzies back to take back to a charity shop or they would go in the bin not happybut they keep doing it.

shame on them for caring eh?! suppose everything in ur house is put in plastic covering after using it....give the books a tiny dust off and theyre good to go, better not let ur child put his hands on anything in ur house, will b germs everywhere...invest in some gloves :thumbsup:

Your in-laws sound like a good laugh....totally deranged and all, but a good laugh none the less...entertainment value of in-laws like that is priceless...keep a hold of them.....and if they get out of control then theres always laxatives to keep them contained...:) :whistling:

I wouldn't be happy about my kids having stuff sent them out the bin but i suppose they just thought they were going to waste and your little one could make use of them.

My mother in law always says kids have to eat muck to build up immune system, maybe we are just too fussy nowadays
#15
Sorry but thats minging. I agree with some comments about some parents being obsessive about this kinda thing. but out of a bin where gawd knows what could have been? eewwwwww
#16
my friend's mother-in-law once gave her a bottle of bleach, a pair of rubber gloves and a pair of neon green towelling socks for her birthday.

the m-i-l is a bit mad, we think.

Very harsh! As kids often put things in their mouths the comparison would be getting your dinner from the neighbours bin anything up to a week after it was put there and eating that.

I agree so much bleach and germ killers used nowdays doesn't help the childs immune system but there is a line and they crossed it.
#18
it actually made my stomach churn, not cos i wouldnt accept 2nd hand stuff cos i do, but because its been in the bin! That is the issue here, not bought in charity shop, not given by a neighbour but IN A BIN!
i do find it shocking. I suppose spraying the pages and covers with antibacterial wouldnt work:? lol
#19
thats really bad ..but i have very nice inlaws ,my mother in law is great
#20
LOL - me a clean freak! I have a St Bernard...I wish! I don't use bleach, only natural products as I completely agree that a bit of muck never killed anyone. On the other hand I don't let him play with the rubbish either as I found the used tea bags make such a mess!

Me...I grew up in with cows and horses...nuff said! Maybe the gloves could prove useful but the dog would eat the plastic covers...or J would :o)
