AIBU to be horrified shocked disgusted AND revolted by family on sofa?

Just got back from a trip to extended family and was HORRIFIED to find that they sit on their bottoms on the sofa, often with only one or two layers of material between skin and chair. PIL don't even wipe it down with anti bac wipes in between different people plonking their backsides down.

WIBU to stand for the entire visit of two weeks? My knees hurt and my face aches from scowling.

People sit on sofa [sofa]
People don't anti bac between everyone sitting on sofa shock

Maybe find something fun to do in life and not worry over this?

God! What if they fart!!! Oh the humanity!

I hope you change that cling film several times a day, Sparkle. Wearing antiseptic gloves.

What do you think sofas are for? confused I hate to break it to you but people tend to sit on them

Who uses anti bac everytime someone gets up fro the sofa? Why? Just why? My sofa is a soft material not leather so I'm not really sure spraying it damp with chemicals everytime is a great idea anyway tbh

Stand when you visit, be a sour faced bag in the corner I don't have to put up with you

Oh god, they sound worse than the double dipping, cotton cloth using, bin wiping mingers I've read about today. I would get myself a protective boiler suit (breaking bad stylee) and only sit on the sofa when wearing that. You will need several as you'll need to take it off when getting up from sofa and put on a fresh one when sitting back down - otherwise you might as well be rolling around in dog filth. And go nc with PIL after this - they sound grim beyond words! grin

My mil cleans the kitchen with her hands. Oh yes she uses rubber gloves but her hands are in the gloves. Dirty cow. I am REVOLTED.

OnlyHereForTheCamping Tue 03-Jan-17 19:10:58

Go nc but only after writing them a long letter pointing out their misdeeds

Pinkheart5915 Tue 03-Jan-17 19:11:11

Me too dawnc27 wink

most people sit and do other things on sofas deal with it

I have encompassed myself and dcs in germ-repellent plastic bubbles. It's only sensible, really.

Although, I do occasionally lick the butter from potatoes with my tongue before serving to guests. Just for balance.

I know people that have sex on the sofa! With no clothes on..or condoms! Oh the horror fshockfshock

ABeaverAteMyThumb Tue 03-Jan-17 19:13:29

We buy a new sofa every day. It gets expensive, but it's worth it.

WalkerBait Tue 03-Jan-17 19:13:39

Dc 3 and 4 were conceived on a sofa fwinkfblushhalo

OnlyHereForTheCamping Tue 03-Jan-17 19:13:39

What doe your dh do? I suggest you don't have a mil problem but a dh problem. Ask home 'did you mean to be so rude", then burn the sofa and ltb. I suggest you read ' why I am right and all my relatives are cunts' by jeneric selfhelpshite

grin I was waiting for one of these threads to appear.

Your extended family sound like filthy bastards. Boil wash your clothes - then put them in the bin - and then set fire to it.

It's the only safe way to stay uncontaminated and pure.

Bananabread123 Tue 03-Jan-17 19:14:57

Disgusting... Sofas should be wrapped in cling film and only then sat on it you've antibac sprayed the bum of your wipe clean trousers. I expect they breathe air straight into their mouths too... without breathing apparatus!

They sound like animals. Please don't tell me they all use the same toilet too? Without a new seat on every time? 😷
