As some of you may remember, I have a despicable sister-in-law P. For almost as long as DH and I have been together, she has done everything she can to cause drama and strife in the family, much of it focused on hurting me and DH. She and my brother-in-law J are a financial mess. Multiple bankruptcies, "borrowing" from family members, nearly jailed due to nonpayment of taxes to the IRS, constant calls from debt and bill collectors, etc. They also convinced their two daughters, our nieces, that we hated them because we decided not to have kids. The logic of that escapes me. As a result, we have virtually no relationship with these now two young women.

J and P are takers and have no issue screwing over anyone to get what they want. When J, who was a drug addict, died two years ago in an accidental drowning, P didn't tell DH about the viewing of his brother's body, saying it was for "immediate family." It was the most cruel thing she's ever done. She also disinvited me to the funeral, causing even more heartache for my husband.

Fast-forward to yesterday. Due to J and P's shitty financial history, P cannot cosign for her youngest daughter's student loan to an expensive, private college. She has the gall to ask if we would. $25K. Unfuckingbelievable.

I do hope you told her to go swivel, on a pointed stick! What a nerve...

^^^ With the state of student loans in this country, I wouldn't co-sign a loan for someone I loved dearly, let some for that branch of the family.

She's got chutzpah. I'll give her that. I hope you told her to pound sand.

Wow - you've gotta admit, she's sure got some nerve.

I hope you laughed in her face and told her to go jump in the lake.

"Yeah, I'd love to! May I recommend my favorite financial institution? We can go there right now. It's the First National Bank Of Fuck You Bitch!"

Or fall in the lake, like her husband did. Too soon?

Seriously, that takes some brass balls. I can't even imagine how delusional you'd have to be, to think that was even an option.

What did you do? How did she contact you? I thought she wasn't talking to you (until she wants something, apparently ...)

I would have started laughing, to be honest. I would have treated it like a joke, and said, "That's hilarious! As if I would do that!" Then if she said she was serious, I would immediately go to icy state and bitch-face, and say I was was serious too.

DH hasn't responded to her yet. We're on vacation and waiting to deal with it when we get home. Let her squirm a little more.

Oh dear. I wonder if she thinks back to those years of saying you hate kids and now thinks she should have kept quiet.

People are so rude. Add stupid to that, why would they think you'd give money when you have nothing to do with them. Crazy.
