My SIL is so mean!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
DH and I went over to my SIL's house to watch my nephew (16 months old) open his presents. She didn't have much of a Christmas budget this year so we agreed not to exchange but she did give everyone a card with a scratch off ticket it each (state lottery). You scratch off 6 hidden dollar amounts and if 3 match you get that amount. So I'm scratching mine off and didn't think I won at first...then I realized I DID have 3 matching amounts...$10,000!!!! DH starts freaking out and I almost passed out! I just kept saying "this can't be right...I NEVER win!!" Going through my mind is catching up bills, stocking the freezer, SHOPPING!!!!

Finally I check to see which state it is for, and yep...no state. She gave me a FAKE scratch off!!! Everyone got a big kick out of it (yes...it is now on video ). She then gave me my real scratch off and I won $2.00. I think I liked the $10,000 better!

I'm not sure whether to laugh, or cry for you. I can't get past thinking that that type of joke was rather mean spirited, even though it was probably not meant in malice. I'd be really angry at someone who did that to me on a serious holiday such as Christmas.

I have to agree... and I'd probably feel embarrassed too. I don't think that was a very nice joke to play.

Awww, she didn't mean anything by it. You just have to know her...she's got a slightly warped sense of humor! The funny this is we were talking about those fake scratch offs not too long ago and how funny the videos are on youtube. All I know is I BETTER not show up there!

I think that's a pretty cruel joke actually.

That so-called "joke" is cruel and stupid -- especially in a time when so many people are being destroyed by this financial meltdown. I can't believe people laugh at such meanness!

I'm sorry, but I don't think it's very funny, either. I have a "warped" sense of humor myself, but some things are just not funny - especially now with everyone having such financial difficulties.

That's terrible! I would have been so mad.

Okay, I'd have been pissed in your position, but it wasn't such a horrible joke!

Take a step back, people, humor helps, and Christmas isn't such a 'serious' holiday... It's built around colorful trees and shopping for crying out loud.

So am i right in assuming you'd smile and laugh if you found out the $10000 you just won wasn't real?

Righteo..

I've seen those videos on America's Funniest a couple times

Last year my family played a joke on me that they got me a dishwasher (I hate doing dishes ) I think I was more embarrassed that I actually fell for it
