She sounds awful. And even if it was (which it wasn't) a genuine mistake, as host you would be mortified, apologise profusely, and give them your dinner. What did your husband do?

That's just peculiar. Even if she'd miscounted (which is possible if you were helping the children) surely she would have been mortified and got another serving for you as soon as your DH said anything - her response does make it seem like it was planned. confused

She didn’t forget.
And what does a slice of pizza later mean? Why couldn’t you eat with everyone else?
She’s horrible.

Are you a size that she would consider overweight?

What a weapon.

You mention a back story so I'm presuming it's not the first time she has behaved badly?

what did you say? if she had genuinely forgotten she would have offered you hers or made smaller portions from everyone elses.

My DP would have escorted me and the kids out and took us for a takeaway.

This is absolutely appalling. If she had truly forgot she would have been mortified and offered you her own or something

What did your DH do?

I'd say that's out and out aggressive, nothing passive about it.

She sounds an absolute bitch

I'd assume your dh gave you his dinner ?

DH, DS, DD, & I went to PILs' house for the day.

There's a back story and it hasn't been the easiest relationship but we're all making an effort for the children.

Anyway, MIL served up food for the children and as I was helping the kids with their food she served up food for the adults. She served up food for my BIL & his wife, DH's Dad, my DH, and herself.

DH said "what about Nanna" and she laughed and said she'd forgotten but I could have an extra slice of pizza later (for tea - I didn't! ).

Is it possible she could've forgotten my dinner? I usually know how many people I'm catering for.

What passive aggressive message is she trying to send me?
