Background...my Mum is a teacher at a secondary school, she has taught my wife's 5 cousins. Three of which were all badly behaved but one in particular the youngest was really disruptive in class.
During my Wedding whilst quite drunk she made a comment she says she said to all three "I love you to bits, but I could kill you sometimes" in jokingly manner. One of my wife's relatives over heard this and reported her to the head teacher. My wife has said that's not what she said, she said "She wanted to hit him sometimes".
My Mum questioned the boy at school about the incident and assured him that it was said in a joking friendly manner. He said he knew it was and laughed it off. He then went and told his mates that his Mum and teacher were going to have a fight.
My Mum has now decided to retire with this being a small part of her reasoning for retiring early, that and her department head is bullying her.
Anyway...my whole family both sides have kept this from me including my wife till today when I went and saw my Mum. I don't know what to think about them all anymore. I just want to shout at them all, especially her auntie who reported her for upsetting my Mum. She was only being all nicey nicey to me at a BBQ last week...two faced &*%^%.
