to think that if you snore like an angry pig all night every night that you shouldn't inflict it on anybody by visiting people ever ever ever ever?

DSIL is making me feel homicidal.

Has been visiting since Thursday has snored every night all night for 4 nights.

I had to sleep on my own sofa last night with a film on to drown out the noise and it's now 6.30am and I've been awake for an hour already listening to it. I've had about 4 hours sleep.

It's ALL night. Apart from when she goes to the loo, and that wakes me because I wake because the noise stops! But never fear, within 30 seconds of returning to the spare room.

Oh but it's all so fucking hilarious to snore isn't it? Oh how she will laugh and fake embarrassment.

We have one more night to go, I swear, never ever again is this woman sleeping in my house.


Alternatively, am I being unreasonable...
how are the other 4 people in this house sleeping throught this fucking racket?
is it only irritating me because i'm pregnant?,
or because I came off my anti-depressants that usually make me much more tolerant of others being selfish dicks.

Perhaps she doesn't realise how loud it is.

Perhaps she should be killed now to save her inflicting this on anyone else?

She should stay more often so you get used to it [gein]

Yanbu. Drives me mad!!! My in laws always tell me I should learn to get used to my husband snoring rather than him get something done about it.

1. I make ear plugs to drown out the noise

2. Never ever let her stay again.

Never again.

Not just this. As i sit here typing with the house shaking.

But the not once offering to fill or empty the dishwasher? the filling my cupboards with 'sugar free' drinks, the watching me hang up the washing, the watching me cart bags of laundry and watching me iron.

To not allow me a night's sleep in between is cruel.

The film I had on last night was intolerable cruelty, how apt.

Radio on now. And I don't care if it wakes her up.

tell her

i have.

i said, it's not so much the snoring but it's the fact that it's ALL night. I've never heard that before. DH snores for a while when he first goes to sleep and gets a swift kick for it. He gets sent to the sofa downstairs, or if I go to the sofa, I usually make it back to my bed once he's quietened down.

Have you recorded her and played it back to her over breakfast? Could be she doesn't realise how loud she is. Try going for a concerned approach rather than frothing at the mouth and lunging at her with any nearby cutlery (v tempting I know, DH is a LOUD snorer), does she know it could signify health problems, you think she should get it checked out in case she has a breathing problem. Oh and never EVER invite her over to stay again!

Mumzy Mon 26-Aug-13 07:01:07

Is she sleeping in the same room as you ? Or is she really that loud you can hear her in another room?

nevergoogle Mon 26-Aug-13 07:02:45

She's in the next room. I lasted 5 minutes last night before heading downstairs where with the radio or TV on I can still hear it.

LittleMissGerardButlerfan Mon 26-Aug-13 07:04:35

I feel your pain, the first time my MIL stayed I woke in the night wondering what the hell the noise was and it was her!! I've honestly never heard anything like it! They stay in a hotel when they come now grin as we don't have a spare room.

My OH didn't seem to get his dads DIY genes but he takes after his mother! He snores however he is lying and nothing stops him!

She might have sleep aponea. She should go to the doctor.

SPBisResisting Mon 26-Aug-13 07:06:27

You're pregnant?!
Congratulations grin
When are you due?

Tittypulumpcious Mon 26-Aug-13 07:08:21

I feel for you there is nothing like being kept awake by stuck pig all night when all you want to do is sleep. It's mental torture, ear plugs or if you have a shed empty it and let miss piggy sleep in there!

Thanks SPB, still in stealth mode with the pregnancy. 7 weeks today. having a bit of a mare without AD's and anti-histamines and feeling murderous.

Is it fair that I usually have to take AD's to make me more tolerant of arseholes?

Due April. An unexpected gatecrasher. He/She better be cute.

A pleasant surprise.

SPBisResisting Mon 26-Aug-13 07:12:34

One more night.....24(ish) small hours and you will be perfectly within your rights to insist DH takes the DCs out for the day and you go back to bed

CaptainSweatPants Mon 26-Aug-13 07:13:05

Can't you stuff cotton wool in your ears?!

nevergoogle Mon 26-Aug-13 07:16:18

i have nothing to put in my ears, apart from maybe tissue, but as sinuses also out of control I don't think I'll be comfortable at all. I may at this point in my rage be breathing through my ears.

Ifancyashandy Mon 26-Aug-13 07:17:55

Oh god. I snore. Less since I lost weight but I know I do. You do know there's nothing a snorer can do about it since they are, you know, asleep...

Thanks, Feeling the love Pav and SPB.

...well she shouldn't sleep, she should sit in my living room awake as I am now. When she gets up she will say she slept really well and insist on conversation continuously until bedtime again.
