    This is sounding like How To Get Away With Murder perhaps rename the thread How To Get Away With A Chipped Tile???

    I would tell my MIL if I broke something or caused damage to her house, just as I would expect a house guest to do so in my own home. Then the damage can be repaired and everyone can move on.

    I believe it's best to be up front and honest, especially with family.

    It's a tiny, tiny spot. Maybe it was all ready damaged?!?!?

    Those tiles are 'expensive and rare'?? Sorry but she got scammed they look like everyday run of the mill cheap tiles to me. Normally I'm big on honesty, but as others have said, no good will come from telling her. She will rave on and on for the next 20 years ago how you completely ruined her kitchen with your carelessness.

    Repeat after me (in Shultz accent). "I know nothingk"

    Haven't read any replies yet...

    My initial thought- if she 'warned' you not to break a tile before leaving, she will probably check them over with a microscope when she returns.

    So, two options:
    1. 'fess up and deal with passive-aggressive comments for the remainder of her life, or
    2. pretend it didn't happen, and be known, not only as someone who does not care for others' stuff, but also a liar.

    1. Hand DH container of slightly greased up cheese spread.

    2. Get daughter to accidentally run into him, hence dropping greasy cheese spread.

    3. It's not your fault!


    Im on the bandwagon of the truth is normally best but it seems you cant win this time round.

    If you told her and she got angry, would DH support you or be on "her side"?

    If he would support you Id consider telling her

    If he would support her...I wouldn't tell that plate full of crazy anything. Ever.

    This isn't the one I wanted but I can't find it. This nearly works.

    I always follow this advice!

    I highly doubt they are too- I think she told me that to make me extra cautious and her to sound less crazy.

    Initially when we moved in she kept emphasising don't damage the tiles. Anything else is easy to fix but NOT THE TILES. She actually initially put down rugs in the kitchen (they were removed after spilt food/drink and general slipping around on the rugs) afraid I would damage a tile. She never admitted it to me -she just told me the rugs were spare- but she said to SIL she did not trust me or my supervision of dd not to drop something and crack a tile. When I dropped a cup awhile ago and she was home she called out "not the tiles!!"

    Mind you she's pedantic about everything but it's the tiles that she warned me about.... Dammit!
