    Usually, I'd say fess up....

    With her though, I wouldn't. Having a tiny chip on a single tile repaired/replaced might be difficult, but could definitely be worth looking into. Otherwise, would your husband take the fall as CookingMonster suggested? Would that make a difference? Surely the response couldn't be as bad as if she thought you did it?

    I do love the blaming DH idea but I'm too scared to even mention it to DH as he will freak out and is a dreadful liar and probably would not take the blame any way....

    Replacing the tile is apparently out of the question as they are very rare and expensive hence the paranoia to begin with *sigh*

    I would not fess up, she has brought it on herself by her over the top behaviour!

    No, I would not fess up. I'd plead total ignorance.

    How tiny is it? My curiosity makes me want to see it, just so I can see how pedantic your MIL is.

    I would normally mention it but with your situation, I probably wouldnt say anything at all! If they are so "rare and expensive" you would be silly not to have a few spares tucked away in the shed somewhere just incase. She sounds like a real piece of work, hope you can move soon.

    Here's a couple of photos

    Just off left and down a little off centre

    Closer up. About 2mm?

    So you can barely see it unless up close.

    ETA:even though it's minuscule she really WILL freak out

    Additional edit: the 1st photo doesn't really show it (iPhone camera is rubbish) but it is visible standing up to the naked eye- especially MIL's!

    Yeah I can't see it in the first one. I'd just pretend it didn't happen. If she notices and asks you about it, just plead ignorance. Never admit to it!

    Default Would you confess? I broke something!!!!

    It makes me sad that someone would be so awful over such a tiny (literally) thing.. That something so normal(to happen) can make you feel guilty/stressed- and that you can't even feel safe bringing it up to her..

    I don't have any advice either way but wanted to offer you hugs- It's pretty d*** unreasonable of her - maybe if it was a huge crack but this??? honestly- any real estate would put that down to normal wear and tear (if notice it at all!)

    All the best- I hope you don't feel too bad because of this woman's dramatic tendencies

    Stuff her. Accidents *do* happen and I highly doubt she has never ever in her whole life had an accident. She probably makes mistakes all the time but sounds too up herself to admit it!

    Don't say you did it. Ever. Don't tell your dh. Don't ever own up to it. Delete those photos off your phone. Want me to delete this thread? I'll totally do it.

    *looks menacingly at all previous posters* we're all in this together. We all deny together. Don't get weak. Don't start crying under interrogation. We all know nothing, got it?!?
