I have ongoing issues with my MIL at the moment. She asked me the other day if I wanted to buy her clothes dryer. I told her that yes, a clothes dryer is something we have considered buying due to the rain but that I didn't want to have one as my DH had hung out a special longer line in the yard and so far I was getting clothes dry. I also told that I bring in damp clothes and dry them by our air/con when it is on in the evening. I told her, if we changed our mind, we would let her know. I hadn't had a chance to talk to DH about it. This morning there is a knock at the door and it's MIL to say she has the dryer with her and she will be happy to accept $50. DH had no idea what was going on. He brought it in and told his mum he would give her the money another day. When MIL left I told DH I didn't want a dryer and was happy with the arrangements we have now. I told DH that she needed the dryer more then us, she has three people living with her and, up until today, she was using the dryer most days of the week. Do you think she was rude? She thinks she is doing us a favour and laughingly commented, $50, that's mate's rates. I am angry that she has done this. I don't want a dryer, if I want one(or we need one) we will go and buy one. This dryer is ok but has a huge dent on the top. It's also a bad week for us financially and we don't have a spare $50. WE have already been helping her out financially with groceries. What do you think?
