MIL is nearly 80, brother late 40s FFS. Started off quite sweetly, haven't seen each other for a couple of years, he comments on how great she looks etc etc.

As drink flowed this afternoon it's moved on to a whole new level of sexual innuendo and touchy feely.

The teens are mortified and have disappeared into another room, emerging occasionally to catch my eye and go "really? Yuck". DH is a bit pissed and thinks it's amusing.

That's weird and gross.

Oh good lord. I'm all kinds of mortified on your behalf. I'm verily clenched!

Ewww! How did you stop yourself from saying something?!

Hahaha, brilliant! I think you and your dh are both right - it IS gross, but also hilarious! Nobody is BU here. Merry xmas!

film him so when he's sober you can force him to watch it over and over again and enjoy seeing him cringe

Utterly bizarre.

I'm with DH, this is hilarious! (And I'm not even drunk!) Anything that gets the teens slinking around going "Yuck!" is a good thing. grin

It's, er, fighting agism in da yout' or somesuch. <nods vigorously>

She's back again today for lunch at ours, but thankfully brother won't be here, although she has now invited him to a 'do' at hers on NYs day. Teens overheard the invite and are now refusing to go.

Anyway there should be less sexual tension in the air today, I'll just have to put up with the hideous comments that she likes to spout, about our country having no identity these days with all the forriners, and how a woman's place is in the home. Women have got too big for their boots these days and the poor men don't know where they stand.

Wish me luck. At least I'm not driving so can hit the prosecco again.

It's an interesting addition to MIL bingo for next year!

I thought you meant your MIL and HER brother, which would be a whole new level of yuck!

PhaedraIsMyName Fri 26-Dec-14 10:36:31

YABU. It amused the 2 of them. You're now complaining about her whilst presumably yesterday you didn't have to listen to her as she was otherwise engaged.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Fri 26-Dec-14 12:31:43

Ermmmm, Film it and show him when hes sober. Maybe youtube it.

Is your brother just one of those flirty people? We know someone (late 30s) who just flirts with everyone ranging from my mother (80s to my daughter 18 and everyone in between). My mother loves it and becomes quite giggly and girlish in his company (which does make me cringe) and my daughter thinks he's a bit sad. He is completely harmless and there is nothing behind it.

Ach lighten up its Christmas. When you're 80 you might find yourself super thrilled with the opportunity to flirt with a nice young man grin You're a long time dead op, save it for things that matter.

Anything that makes teens cringe is a score in my books.....

YABU. Lighten up. What you call flirting they just see jokes with a sexual content and have no intention of actually turning words into actions.

As for embarrassing your teens...some teens find lots of things embarrassing that grown adults don't. It's our job to show them they are making a fuss about nothing. They are probably following the cues from your tuts and eye rolling.
