Since visiting he's angrily told me that adult children should bloody well look after elderly parents (I can bet my bottom dollar he would never expect his son to stop his career to care for him) and is now commenting on the weight of every female on TV angry.

Is he expecting his DD to look after him or you, his DIL?

He sounds like a buffoon.

He doesn't have a DD! shock

I'd comment on the weight of each middle aged man!

Very tempting @ImperialBlether - he's very disappointed that my partner is refusing to join in which is mildly satisfying.

How old is he?

63! My parents are a lot older but he has very traditional views.

Be open and honest with him. Say "do you really think your son is going to give up his career to be your carer? Did you give up your career to care for your parents?

Just ask him. Be interesting to see what he says
