To think she was really rude!

Family BBQ today at mine and my boyfriends house, my parents both sets of my grandparents and my bf's mum and brothers.
All the women are chatting and it's pretty light hearted and mostly about the men! I say something to my bf's mum about not deserving him, but in a very jokey way. My grandma (mums) says "well that's absolutely not true, you've really sold your self short with him".
I'm mortified but didn't know what to say, my mum said something to her, which resulted in a "well I guess she didn't do as bad as you"
She doesn't like my dad and that's well known, but she wouldn't usually be rude, but that's rude isn't? She's saying it wasn't meant like that, but how else can it be meant?

I feel so embarrassed for my bf's mum and my gran (dad's) both who sat there and heard her.

Your mom rude or your gran rude? I'd say both of them were! Did it cause tension or did everybody just get on with the day?

Yes, she was extremely rude. But you didn't make the comments so you have nothing to be embarrassed about.

Omg sorry just reread the post I misunderstood and thought that your mother said that last comment back to her own mother

She was kind of sticking up for you really, seeing as you were putting yourself down at bit by your comment. She might not have realised you were joking.

I'm trying to think how she could have misheard/misunderstood or something,ThePink but she was part of the conversation and it was so obviously light hearted.

I know it wasn't me cariadlet but I was still embarrassed.

Hmm, spoke to my grandma today and she's saying she thought my bf's mum said it and that's why she was annoyed and said something back!
I'm not sure I believe her, but don't really want to cause a issue over it!
