SIL keeps deleting me on FB if she's pissed off with DH

SIL thinks the world revolves around her; everything is always based around her and her dramas/problems and everyone has to make the effort with her. She never makes any effort at all.

She regularly (around 5 or 6 times a year) gets annoyed with DH because he hasn't phoned her/texted her/done a favour she wants him to do.

Whenever this happens she deletes me on FB. DH is not on FB. She then re-adds me when she's got over whatever has pissed her off. I've just realised she's deleted me yet again, and this time when she re-adds me I'm going to decline as I've had enough of her childish behaviour.

I have been so supportive to her, including having her child FOR FREE 2 days per week whilst she worked before he was at school, lending her money, helping her out with all kinds of stuff.

That's it now though, I'm disengaging and not playing ball anymore!

Don't accept her as a friend and tell her why when she complains. You've been good to her and she's taking her temper out on you - that's not fair.

oh block her for sure as soon as you can

and tell her to FRO for her childcare too!

Why give her the satisfaction of constantly deleting you? If she asks for a friend request just ignore it. Don`t give her any of your time and effort.

And block her

block her and just leave it at that. Dont go back on it.

Just go and block her now so she can't even send you a request.

I'd definitely ignore her request, that'd do my head in. I'm not 5 years old.
If she questions why you're not adding her, just say "well, as you keep defriending me in the first place I figure you don't really want me on there in the first place!"

Just leave the request pending then she won't be able to keep trying you add you

Well I totally agree why accept her as a friend on Facebook when she isn't acting like a friend? Life's far too short for stupid petty games.

Hope she gets the message and stops doing it. Sounds like she's hard work and doesn't appreciate the things you've done for her. You sound like a wonderful person to help her in that way what a shame she's too obtuse to realise that.

Are you both 12?

Simonely11 Fri 10-Feb-17 22:10:55

I think the sil is the one who is acting like a 12 year old. Block her, block her now before you get a request. What an idiot.

Block her. Facebook makes grown people behave like teenagers, it's ridiculous.
If you block her now she won't be able to find you to send you a friend request again

PollytheDolly Fri 10-Feb-17 22:17:03

Definitely block her. Take her power away. She's a knob.

TheMysteriousJackelope Fri 10-Feb-17 22:17:55

Why are you accepting her friend requests? Just ignore them or block her so she thinks you are no longer on Facebook.

Chloe84 Fri 10-Feb-17 22:22:05


Do you have anything helpful to say? Now bugger off and good day to you.

Chloe84 Fri 10-Feb-17 22:22:49

OP, I wouldn't just decline, I would block her as well.

InvisibleKittenAttack Fri 10-Feb-17 22:32:51

Don't block her, that's clearly a sign you've noticed her de-friendly flounce and are annoyed by it. Just ignore the friend request. Leave it ignored.

If she says anything just say "oh sorry, I thought we were Facebook friends already. Had no idea we weren't." Making her think you didn't notice her tantrum last time will annoy her more, this is attention seeking behaviour, don't give it attention, and blocking is giving it attention.

Just ignore her. Be the grown up.
