Even if I do not like her, I will try my hardest to get to know her and try to like her. If I fail, I will not show my disappointment or dislike. There isn't much I can do to make him change his mind anyway. I know he's going to be as stubborn as me and his father are/were.
So I might as well try to get along.
My ex sil came to the hospital after I had dd.
She got really ****y that we had a girl and shed had a boy. She came over gave me a fake hug and whispered "it doesn't matter, mil won't care about your child, they only care about the first one"
I was walking in the city with my friend on a really really hot melbourne day. As we were crossing the road a guy said "oh its really hot today, i bet you have a sweaty box" ummm WTF
another time i was on the train on my way home from school, so wearing my school uniform, i was 16 at the time. Anyway this man sat opposite me and then actually bent down and tried to look up my skirt it was so awful, luckily for me it was peak hour and a lovely businessman came over and pretended he knew me and sat next to me talking to me and the dirty perve just said to him, oh you know her and then got off the train - was wayyyy akward but i was grateful for the man to come and help me out
Also, when i was 15 i had a substitute teacher tell me that i should just drop out of school as i will never amount to anything - i had a lot of choice words for her after that though so i wasn't really lost for words
A workmate told me I will burn in hell forever for being gay. I was so shocked I actually started laughing uncontrollably.
Funny thing is, DP and I have been in a committed relationship for 11 years, back then her boyfriend who she was living with was shagging a friend on the couch with her knowledge.

Am speechless at some of the horrible things people have had said to them..
When I was 6 & organising my 7th birthday party some of my "friends" came up to me & told me that I shouldn't invite my best friend to my party. Also, if I did what they said they would invite me to their birthday parties later on... I was furious. Needless to say, I didn't remain friends with them & am still friends with my bestie.
Recently, when we were at the inlaws, DD was tired & cranky as it was past her bedtime. I went to get her sleepwear & came back to MIL holding DD & she whispered to me "Aww she wants Mummy first, then Grandma - doesn't want anything to do with her Daddy!" Not telling DF that one...am sure it was unintentional but it came across badly.
My aunt told me that if I wanted to put my child in cloth nappies I should
Stay at home... That MCNs are disgusting and shouldn't be in a day care cnt...Or be anyone else's responsibility to take poo out of a nappy..... I reminded her that you are Suppose to empty the poop out of a Sposie anyway......
When I was doing my trial HSC I rocked up to maths exam day without my calculator due to sleep deprivation from studying all night. I went in the maths staff room to ask my teacher to borrow a calculator. One of the other teachers in the room piped up "not that it will do her much good anyway." Thanx, now I feel great going into my exam!
When I said I wanted to be a vet the teacher I told basically told me that it was too hard and too competitive and I would never make it so pick another dream.
