I just got the MOST passive agressive e-mail of my life. I wanted to ream her out in the e-mail, but I contained myself and instead I will vent here
My fiance's mother passed away 10 years ago from cancer. His dad re-married over the winter holidays. The whole family (fiance's brothers, me, fiance, my FFIL, and my crazy FSMIL) did a memorial walk over the weekend for the Cancer Society.
At this walk, we were given the standard "I'm walking for_______" signs to place on our backs as we walk.
FSMIL saw me write, "I'm walking for my grandmother" on my soon to be 3 year old neice's sign and fasten it to her shirt. Her mom (my fiance's brother's wife) saw it and said, "Aww, how nice." Nothing else was said about it until today when I get this email from my fiance's dad's new wife:
It was nice seeing you and James at the walk. I know Bill really liked having the whole family together. There has been something on my mind that I want to say to you. It's not a big deal but it has been upsetting me.
It was really hard for me to look at Abbey's sign you made, where you wrote, "I"m walking for my grandmother." I know I'm not her biological grandmother, however I do consider myself her grandmother and that really hurt me to see that mentioned on her shirt.
I'm sure you didn't intend to hurt my feelings, but I just wanted you to know that really affected me and almost brought me to tears. I'm not mad at you, I'm just very hurt.
Your Crazy Future Step Mom"
I AM LIVID!!! She WAS walking for her grandma, so WHAT is the big deal?? I think she's being extremely insensitive to the fact that the walk was NOT about her, it was about a wonderful woman, my fiance's mother and the grandmother of my soon-to-be niece.
What should I do with the e-mail??? Ignore it?? Write back???
I don't want to tell fiance at this point as he already doesn't like her, and I don't want him to get upset or angry.
AHHH I'm so annoyed and pissed off at her.
