GoVanGogh Posted December 16, 2011 Share Posted December 16, 2011 Background: We have been married and lived 600+ miles from family for 20+ years. This year I talked my DH into inviting his mother down for Christmas and we would pay for her airplane ticket as her gift. DH really didn't want to because her visits tend to be unpleasant, but finally decided to make the offer. MIL accepted, but wanted to come down before Christmas. So MIL was here last week. Today, DH got a thank you card in the mail. DH says his mom was just being "old school," but I think she was being rude to me. (MIL and I do NOT have a good relationship, so I know I tend to take everything personally.) Envelope -- Addressed to DH. Thank you note -- Addressed to DH. P.S. note about the check -- Addressed to DH. Check "for everything you did" -- Made out to DH. Was she being "old school" by addressing only DH? Or was she being rude? I get that she would make the check out to my DH. But I found it rude that she didn't mention my name on the thank you card when I was the one that was put out the most by her visit and did the most work for her visit. :tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
