Given the Boot

We're on vacation and have been staying at my in-laws since last Saturday but moved out last night after my dear FIL informed my wife that we weren't welcome and shouldn't ever come back. Our crime? My sons and I didn't go to church on Sunday and we weren't planning on going this coming Sunday because we are going to the AMA Superbike races. According to my FIL, everyone who lives under his roof (including visitors apparently) must follow his rules. He makes the rules as he goes along and changes them at random, but compliance is still required.

Don't worry. We are staying at my sister-in-law's house and hearing horror stories about how my FIL continues to treat his adult children that live in the vicinity.

More details to come when I get back home Sunday or if I get a chance sooner.

WOW. It's sad for your FIL's grandkids...

I wish people would let other people live their own beliefs...

At least you don't live close by, huh.

What is it with people who think they have the right to micromanage the lives of everyone they know?

I'm really sorry that you're having to deal with this sort of thing while you are on vacation and supposed to be having fun.

Nice. Poor MIL. How did she react? The good little Mormon wife supporting her husband? Just another example of Mormon intolerance and lack of respect for other's beliefs (or lack thereof).
