How can you thank someone for something they haven't given? She's absolutely bonkers!

Facebook is the cause of arguments and breakdowns. Idk why people bother with it. Yes you should've thanked her whether she got stuff for your kids or not

I just realised how confused I am! Ignore the last part of my post I'm lost now

Merry Christmas SIL and thanks for your non-present.

ING.. ING!!!

I think she's a bit tapped if she thinks she deserves thanking for erm.. nothing!

Or in fact, you could post that on FB:
Dear SIL, thanks for nothing.

What, she wanted thanking for a Christmas present when she didn't send one? confused

Stealthpolarbear Sat 27-Dec-14 19:04:11

She your bil's wife? Was the present from him actually from both?

DamnBamboo Sat 27-Dec-14 19:04:15

Your title is misleading too. There was no present to give thanks for.

Ha yes I'd be tempted to do a special post just for SIL

Forgot to say a big thank you to SIL for her Christmas thoughts and wishes. You're the best!

Let me make sure I got this right.

Your SIL didn't buy anything for your kids

But she thinks she should be publicly thanked along ŵith the present givers, for no present?

If I'm right with that, YANBU and she is barking mad.

Sorry everyone if iv confused you all its my first time posting, and no my bil and sil are siblings. I was just a bit shocked as i did not intend to hurt anyones feelings and yes glitzandgigglesx you are very right facebook is trouble i think i will be coming off it and communicate the old fashioned way x

She thinks you should of sed thanks for nothink?
What a weirdo

Yes everyone you read correctly my sil wanted publicly thanked for a present she did not get

I'm too sober for this thread.

I will come back to it later.

BIL was being a bit of a stirrer. When he had the conversation with SIL he should have told her to get a grip. Why did he have to then phone you about it?

This is depressing hmm

sparklebutt Sat 27-Dec-14 19:19:45

Why does anyone tell tales? I guess probably to stir

ohdearitshappeningtome Sat 27-Dec-14 19:20:48

Ho ho ho!

sparklebutt Sat 27-Dec-14 20:53:14

Dropdeadfred2 Sat 27-Dec-14 21:05:13

did you ask him why she hasn't got them presents and yet still wanted thanking??

slightlyworriednc Sat 27-Dec-14 21:09:13

I would definitely do what knackeredmerrily said!
